Portal Technologies Expands Cybersecurity Practice with New AI Powered Partnership

Today Portal Technologies, a leading managed IT service provider in Scotland, announced a strategic partnership with SKOUT Cybersecurity to better secure clients and grow their cyber-as-a-service practice. SKOUT is a globally recognised cybersecurity company that partners with select IT providers to deliver their services.

Portal Technologies has been delivering IT Services for over a decade and, in the process, helped numerous businesses streamline their IT processes to be successful.
Portal Technologies cybersecurity practice is not new, but the new partnership with SKOUT allows for an expansion of cloud-native threat detection tools that utilise AI am machine learning. The partnership is focused on three new areas of cybersecurity: ransomware, business email compromise, and compliance.

“At Portal Technologies, we understand that cybersecurity is a growing concern for many, especially with the increase in threats since lockdown has occurred,’ said Craig Millar, Founder and Managing Director of Portal Technologies. “Whilst our team is highly educated, cybersecurity is an area where talent can be limited due to the speed at which new threats appear. Therefore, experience is limited across the industry, and partnering with SKOUT made it a simple decision to add a greater level of protection for our clients.”

“We’ve focused on protecting small and medium-sized businesses since day one. Every company should be able to get protected from cybercrime,” said Aidan Kehoe, Founder and CEO of SKOUT Cybersecurity. “Our new partnership with Portal Technologies will allow us to protect more businesses and protect workers.”

Portal Technologies states the expanded services are a key component of their 2021 strategic plan and allow for more focus on customer experience with a consolidated IT and cybersecurity practice. For more information on Portal Technologies, visit
