Code Red is the first International IT Security Specialist PR Network
The Code Red IT Security PR Network was developed to offer security vendors looking to build a profile in the competitive security market place the opportunity to work with security PR specialists globally, each member agency has been hand-picked for its in-depth experience in the IT security market place. The aim is to simplify the task of marketing and corporate communications executives at security vendors in finding and managing specialist agencies to develop and execute multi-country PR campaigns, which can be coordinated either centrally or on a country-by-country basis.
The Code Red security network was founded by UK IT security specialist agency, éclat Marketing to fill the gap between large multi-national agency conglomerates and small independent boutique agencies. Code Red founder Dianne Canham comments: “The security market is currently attracting massive security investments on an unprecedented scale and spawning a new wave of innovative security start-ups and IPOs. Businesses are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of investing in the appropriate defences against data breaches and malware and are looking for technology to help mitigate the shortage of security skills and tackle new threat vectors posed by mobile devices, the cloud and now the Internet of Things.”
“Currently CMOs at security vendors are forced to choose between global reach and security specialisation in selecting their PR partners. Now there is a viable alternative that allows them to work with a global network of experienced security PR professionals, or – as the security profession is so fond of saying – ‘You’re only as strong as the weakest link’.”
Code Red expands its global reach with Chayun Public Relations, a Korean agency providing marketing and PR expertise for multinational companies in Korea.
