Award-winning AI cybersecurity creating a fair and inclusive marketplace

ProtectBox is the go-to platform for businesses looking for jargon-free cybersecurity bundles to protect their whole business. Our award-winning, responsible AI is eliminating bias and creating a fair and inclusive marketplace for everyone.

We are a fairly priced marketplace, founded in 2017, by CEO, Kiran Bhagotra. After she left her Security role in the UK government’s Cabinet Office, Kiran realised businesses were spending huge amounts, but also getting a bad deal when buying security.

We don't think that is fair, which is why we are transparent (showing Supplier prices online, not just referring you to a Supplier who could then increase their price) and in-line with the market. We offer you both in-direct and direct sales of Suppliers’ products/services to ensure the prices you see are market aligned.

We're also not just about improving the process, but championing small and medium businesses to receive fairer deals. We are making the cybersecurity world more approachable for you by hiring those that wouldn't normally be seen as the norm for cybersecurity.

We’re ‘less geek’ and as much a small and medium business, just like you.

Our Story

Our founder, Kiran Bhagotra, is a third-time, successful entrepreneur. Kiran left her UK government role in the Cabinet Office promoting UK cyber globally to put her (little) money where her (big) mouth is' to disrupt the unacceptable security gap for small and medium businesses globally.

Security is a right we all deserve and we are making it a reality, by automating empowerment. Using an independent plug and play marketplace, global strategic alliances, regulation focus and sales analytics, our aim is to create a diverse and fully inclusive cybersecurity marketplace for everyone.
