Results for 2021 and prospects for 2022

20 Dec 2021 Author: Sofia Mashchenko

Dear customers, partners, and users!

H-X Technologies team would like to thank you for working with us in 2021!

Traditionally, at the end of the year, we would like to share our achievements and plans.

In 2021, in addition to the dozens of international professional certifications we already had, we received new ones: Offensive Security Experienced Penetration Tester (OSEP) and Certified Red Teaming Expert (CRTE), as well as several ISO 27001 certifications: Senior Lead Auditor, Lead Auditor and Management System Auditor.

Our baggage of cybersecurity experience has been enriched by dozens of interesting, challenging, and socially important projects for our regular and new clients.

Last winter and spring, we carried out a number of information security projects for several participants in the Prozorro public procurement system. We are proud of our contribution to the fight against corruption at the national level.

We developed and implemented the procedures for responding to information security incidents for a major Eastern European bank in accordance with the requirements of the SWIFT international payment system. We also conducted a successful security audit and assessment for a project of Vodafone, one of the world’s largest mobile communication brands. Furthermore, we implemented ISO 27001 and helped a major Norwegian SaaS company obtain official certification.

Over the summer, we invested a lot of resources in developing the security of ICS and critical infrastructure. This area is important not only for the country’s economy but also for life, safety, and the environment.

Having supported the USAID and SocialBoost initiative, we took part in the Cyber Accelerator, participated in the national hackathon on critical infrastructure security, developed and conducted unique training on industrial control system security, SCADA, and ISA 62443 standards.

As a logical result of these efforts, we have won open tenders for critical projects for the country’s largest energy, metallurgical, and other industrial companies. Several of these projects have already been successfully completed and others are planned for the next 3 years. All these achievements have cemented our status as a leader in industrial IT and OT security services.

During the year, we received a number of requests for audits of smart contracts. We believe in the bright future of blockchain. One day these technologies will underpin many governmental, legal, economic, and social functions. We are investing heavily in the development of new technologies. In blockchain auditing, we are the leaders in value for money.

We have met all of our goals and objectives to ensure quality and highly professional work with our clients and partners, and have received excellent feedback from them.

At the same time, given our values and code of ethics, we did not forget about philanthropy and other social responsibilities. Also, we talked about protecting smaller websites whose owners cannot afford expensive pentests, about security when working remotely, and shared our constructive standpoint on epidemic and infodemic.

In summary, 2021 was a very successful year for us. We have exceeded our plans, increased our staff, and successfully overcome the “developmental diseases” inherent in any fast-growing company. The work done by our team is a solid foundation to continue long-term mutually beneficial relationships with clients and to develop partnerships in the coming year.

We sincerely believe that our daily security work protects the well-being of our customers, partners, and employees, and provides a solid foundation for their development, financial stability, implementation of their plans, fortunate chances, and kind intentions.

We thank you for the pleasure of working with you. On the eve of the happy winter holidays, we wish you and your families health, a lot of energy, bright moments, and new opportunities. May all your cherished dreams come true and let great ideas inspire you to new victories!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
