Synchronized Security

Securing your IT infrastructure today requires more than merely installing anti-virus software or some firewalls. Cyber threats can appear from multiple sources, and even from instances of oversight from your employees themselves. Therefore, this calls for security and encryption at multiple levels. Our consultants install impregnable security both at hardware and software levels through state-of-the-art technology solutions.

Get to know our experts

The nice thing about working at Rank 1 is that I get the opportunity to really use my experience in depth. It's not because I dread comparatively routine work. It is because there is a healthy knowledge culture between the colleagues. We learn a lot from each other and then apply that knowledge to solve real-world problems for the customers. It also helps me create the same attitude while working among the customers, which gives me a lot of job satisfaction.

Nicky

Senior System Engineer & Cloud Architect

When I started working at Rank 1 I already had a fair amount of experience. But here I got the opportunity to further train and certify myself in qualitative solutions from reputed hardware manufacturers. And that makes all the difference. As a result, I can reassure my customers that their network and security are in good hands. I'm also confident that I can bear a great deal of responsibility for what goes through my hands. I'm quite proud of that.

Tim

Tim

Network & Security Engineer

I am happy to be able to set up architectures of challenging projects for fantastic clients who have a clear understanding of what the Cloud can do for them to support their processes, and to adapt the infrastructure to what is going on in the digital world. It gives me pleasure to say that sometimes, that piece of "evangelism" (as they say it) to allow the organizational structure and the ICT culture to evolve and grow, is also found among many clients I have been working with, as it is the case within Rank 1. This gives me a lot of satisfaction.

Michael

Michael

Senior System Architect & IT Architect

I was a bit reluctant to focus full-time on PMO. This is because I have technical training myself and I thought I would miss the technical work. There was nothing to worry about. As the project manager, I make sure that I'm really involved in the implementation and stay in the thick of things. I feel great and at the same time my colleagues and my customers know that I'm always there and they can rely on me to make sure that the deadlines are met and everything happens according to the plan.

We cultivate knowledge

We are constantly cultivating a knowledge culture at Rank 1. Sharing expertise with each other and looking for solutions together are important growth engines at our workplace. We follow this approach both among our in-house employees and when our consultants are working with our customers at remote locations. Our partnerships give us access to interesting and useful information, training, and workshops. This way we can keep up with the latest developments and trends in the market and constantly appraise ourselves. Our employees are actively coached and encouraged to obtain more certifications.
