We offer a variety of solutions to deliver the services your firm needs while planning for your future. F12 Plus offers an Operational Expense solution where we make an upfront investment of hardware, software, and labour to advance your business without the risk of capital investment. And as you grow your business, we’ll scale with you as needed, so you never have to worry about purchasing technology or services today that you may need tomorrow.
Talking about finances isn’t always easy, but protecting your clients’ confidential information should be. Working with F12 will help instill confidence in your investors that you take protecting their data against the threat of security breaches seriously. Through vulnerability testing, ongoing monitoring, and employee training, F12 looks to alleviate the risk of a security breach and proactively take steps to make sure your network—and your reputation—are protected.
Due diligence meetings can feel like an interrogation, especially if you don’t have all of the information you need to answer your investors’ questions. But there’s no need to let them see you sweat when you partner with F12. Our technical assessment is designed to identify and resolve any vulnerabilities in your network security so that it is fully compliant and equipped to protect your confidential information. We’ll not only run the assessment, but we’ll sit down with your investors to ensure that even the toughest due diligence questions are answered to their satisfaction. F12’s security assessment can also help you make better investment decisions. Before investing in a company, we can assess their network and cybersecurity measures to ensure that you’re not taking on more risk than necessary. It pays to have F12 on your side!
