Her Majesty The Queen, advised by the Prime Minister, has honoured Eskenzi PR and Marketing with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2018, recognising its outstanding achievement in International Trade. Eskenzi has been in business for over twenty years, working with cyber security companies all over the world, to raise awareness of security issues organisations face and the cutting edge technology available to thwart cyber attacks. This award comes at a time when the government is paying particular focus in this area, having recently launched its strategy to support the export of cyber security technology.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise are the UK’s most prestigious business awards, recognising and celebrating business excellence across the UK. This year it has been given to just 152 companies for overseas trade and International growth.
Yvonne Eskenzi, Co-Founder at Eskenzi PR said: “The Queen’s Award is the highest accolade that any British company can achieve. For us, it is recognition of the contribution and hard work we, as an agency, deliver in the cyber security sphere. We’re proud to say we’ve been in the space, from the start, working tirelessly to highlight cyber security challenges organisations’ face daily, and promoting the technologies that help strengthen their defences. Over twenty years ago we helped to launch Infosecurity Europe – a cyber security exhibition held annually in London, it was a subject few outside of the sector understood, or even knew existed. Today it’s front page news and being debated during board meetings and at dinner parties around the world. I’m especially proud that we have won the Award for all our work overseas, recognising Eskenzi PR as the go to international PR agency for Cyber Security.”
Eskenzi PR Ltd is a specialist agency, working closely with the very best cyber security companies in the world, including those coming out of Israel, Silicon Valley, Europe and of course, the UK. Today, the agency represents over 25 companies, working with many leading vendors in cyber including Airbus Cybersecurity, Imperva, ESET and AlienVault.
By investing in technology, Eskenzi PR has the tools needed to ensure it remains one step ahead of its competitors, enabling the agency to grow quickly across the UK, France, Germany, Benelux, The Nordics, and, most importantly, the USA.
