Following CenturyCom’s £7 million acquisition by Diagonal plc, the company has appointed a new managing director. Paula Irvine will now head up the company, moving from the position of sales director. One of the co-founders of Network security specialist, CenturyCom, she has nearly ten years’ experience in the security sector and is credited with selling the UK’s first Intranet firewall.

Following CenturyCom’s £7 million acquisition by Diagonal plc, former managing director Clive McCafferty has moved to a senior marketing role within the Diagonal Group.

Irvine has also been responsible for winning and managing CenturyCom’s largest accounts, which include a number of leading high-street and investment banks. Before she worked for Century, Irvine set up the internet division for security integrator, Integralis, and was a member of the original management team at the same company’s security spin-off, Quza.

“Security is crucial to underpin the e-commerce boom, so there’s never been a better time to be in this industry,” said Irvine. “As a co-founder of CenturyCom, I already know the company very well and am now seeing it realise its potential. With our strong client base and experienced team we’re well placed to continue being a leader in the UK security market.”

Established in 1998, CenturyCom has grown by 500 per cent, reflecting the importance companies place in their data, and the fact that e-commerce cannot succeed without substantial investment in security. The company works in every industry information sector, through government, banking, finance and retail. It takes a pragmatic approach to security, developing tailored solutions to cater for the specific needs of an organisation. It also offers 24x7 technical support, bespoke training, and Check-approved penetration tests.

Its product portfolio is made up of offerings from the market’s leading players, including Check Point, Content Technologies, RSA, Baltimore, Finjan, and Stonesoft.
