Information systems are the beating heart of how companies operate, and it is these companies that elevate nations to new and prosperous heights. The team behind 3R Technologie understand this better than anybody, and have made it their mission to ensure information systems are protected in this brave new world of cyberthreat. In Acquisition International’s Global Excellence Awards, the team were named Most Innovative Computer Security Solutions Firm 2022 – Ivory Coast. We dig a little deeper to find out more.

Cyber security is more important than ever before. In a world which depends on information systems which are safe and secure, companies often struggle to stay ahead of the curve. The services offered by the 3R Technologie team include IT solutions specifically tailored to their unique requirements, built on well-informed guidelines and well-built and value-added information system services.

The team’s impressive portfolio of services is made of Information System security, Cloud Computing and Virtualisation, Voiceover IP and telecommunication and data centres. Each of these services is an essential part of the modern workplace, allowing for the flexibility in operation that allows businesses to adapt quickly to rapidly changing circumstances. No matter what the needs of the client, focusing in on these specific opportunities for businesses has ensured the 3R Technologie team are invaluable partners. Those who wish to thrive in the modern workplace depend on the skills that they offer.

Because the range of skills is so varied, it’s little wonder that the team are in such high demand. Through the use of subject matter experts who take the time to learn about the needs of customers, detailed plans are produced which not only deal with the issues of the moment, but build in the ability for change in the future. The commitment shown by the 3R Technologie team demonstrates their passion for the sector and for meeting their clients’ needs in every respect. At the heart of this approach is a desire for good customer service that always goes above and beyond.

Whilst the 3R Technologie team has worked with companies of every shape and size, from SMEs to multinationals, the challenge they face is the level of maturity that cybersecurity has in African countries, primarily the French speaking ones. The importance increases by the day, yet many do not employ an Information Systems Security Officer and often have no budget at all for information system security. The problem is often a lack of understanding which leads to a refusal to create a role which deals with the difficulties of the present day. As a result, many organisations struggle to make strategic decisions that will benefit them in the long run.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many businesses to change their perspectives on this, however. The team at 3R Technologie has been driven by this dramatic shift. Research shows that ransomware and phishing attacks increased by 600%, requiring more teleworkers to support clients who were in an unprecedented situation. The new paradigm was completely unexpected, and the IT world was not ready to deal with the immediate challenges. The trust which many businesses placed in the talented team at 3R Technologie was crucial to the development of essential information security systems. One of the most important decisions over this period was to work alongside a business partner to create a Security Operation Centre. This has proven to be immensely popular with clients and has driven even more success for the firm.

This success has clearly led to impressive growth, but the growth has highlighted a woeful lack of cyber security specialists in the field. To meet the increasing demand, 3R Technologie has seen a new department open its doors, namely 3R ACADEMIE. This aims to train security juniors for international certificates in partnership with PECB, and EC-Council. The team also provides a homemade curriculum intended to help people build up their skills as Information Security Engineers.

It’s clear that whilst technology is a major factor in the world that the 3R Technologie team undertakes, it’s people that lie at the heart of the business. The 3R Technologie leadership is aware that their most valuable resource lies with their staff. Driven by the core values of Responsiveness, Rigor, and Reliability, the team face their clients’ challenges side-by-side. The success of the team is a result of continually hiring the best of the best, drawing on the skills of an international workforce.

Winning the award for “Most Innovative Computer Security Solutions Firm 2022 – Ivory Coast” is a direct result of this hard work. The goal of the company is to retain the highest standards, and this is only possible if the team is always looking forward. Instead of settling for what has worked in the past, the 3R Technologie team has made it a point of principle to continually invest in the development of resources in order to unleash new expertise.

This new expertise can be garnered in a number of ways, but one which 3R Technologie relies heavily upon is shared knowledge. The working environment is one where anyone is able to speak to everyone, including the CEO. This approach to work is supported by the African culture of respect for elders and authorities. In many ways, the success of 3R Technologie has come from the way in which it isn’t just a business where people come to work, but a family where people live and thrive. It’s little wonder that so many of the team have the skills that people need, to the highest possible level, building on certification in every topic from information security governance to networking and cloud

The success of 3R Technologie has come from their ability to reach out to companies where they are and meet their specific needs. Looking ahead, the future of the company seems like it will continue to lean on this skill. Already, the team have opened up new partnerships with large companies around the world and are committed to engaging more with banks and financial institutions. The security concerns for these organisations are greater than most, and will showcase the incredible way in which the 3R Technologie team has grown into a formidable cyber security specialist.

When looking to the future, security should always be uppermost in people’s concerns. Cyber security, especially, is a factor often overlooked as people embrace the potential of the digital landscape. Fortunately, whilst the world of cyberthreats moves steadily forward, the 3R Technologie team strives to remain one step ahead. Their success is something to be justly celebrated, now and long into the future.
