Our History

Established in Cambridge in 1999, Softwerx has been a Microsoft Gold Partner for nearly twenty years. Throughout that time, Softwerx has had a specific focus on IT infrastructure, security and compliance.

More recently, Softwerx is experiencing a growth rate of 25% per annum and has introduced a range of modular managed security services based around market-leading cyber security solutions.

Our Vision

We’re on a mission to help modernise and secure businesses across the UK and Europe. Our vision is to become the most professional and trusted cyber security and compliance partner in the UK.

Our core values revolve around our passion for cyber security and customer service. We love sharing our knowledge and expertise – helping businesses to transform the way they work and improve their security posture.

Who We Work With

We work with a wide range of different sectors and businesses throughout the UK and Europe, including a number of very well-known and prestigious names.
