About Us

Welcome to Cognition

Cognition was formed by a group of Cyber Security experts who grew tired of seeing customers being held hostage by their current providers, stuck with poor service, amateur guidance and questionable value. We’re proud to do things differently and ensure our clients receive the service they’ve always expected but have never seen, setting a new standard of quality for the IT Security industry.


At the heart of our mission is our top class people, each of whom has proven themselves by delivering exceptional results to customers at roles within Security Vendors, Resellers and Distributors.


One thing we pride ourselves on is our consultative approach. We ask the questions that matter and give the advice you need. It sounds obvious but it’s incredibly rare in an industry filled with techies you can’t understand and salespeople you can’t trust. True partnerships is something we’re passionate about and we seek to restore faith in the “Trusted Partner” status. We see partnerships like a marriage, a journey of inter-reliance, trust and support and we will pick up the phone any time to offer help and guidance.

Cognition is a bit different. We know that trust is at the heart of Security and for that reason we have a highly selective recruitment policy. So much so that we don’t accept CVs from anyone we don’t already know and only trust those we have seen first-hand deliver excellence throughout their career. That’s why we only headhunt or work with direct referrals. If you think you’re at the top of your game and want to join the very best team in the InfoSec industry then please contact one of our team directly.
