Company description

At APPROACH, we help our customers to be resilient in a dangerous cyber-space.

Today's organizations are exposed to a broad spectrum of cyber threats and sophisticated attacks. They need to be well prepared to protect their critical information and assets while retaining their ability to innovate and grow.

Increasing compliance demands from regulators and legislations (eg the GDPR) put even more pressure.
We are uniquely positioned to offer the complete value proposition in cyber-security. We assess, train, coach and advise our customers. We quickly intervene in case of emergencies and attacks.

When security is at the core of our customer business, we build up a secure software factory to make sure security is embedded by design in our customer products and services.

APPROACH is strongly connected with the cyber-security community. We are involved in leading associations, groups of interest and events. We work with a network of top-notch partners and are directly connected with the relevant authorities.

In 2017, APPROACH has grown by +25% and generated a turnover of €6.7M. Our company is privately held and has access to a strong capital base. In 2019 we have grown by opening up a new office in Antwerp. You could become one of them!
