Managed security services provider

Adarma, previously known as ECS Security, is one of the largest independent security services companies in the UK, formed and run by veteran senior security leaders with clients across FTSE 250 organisations from all industry sectors.  Adarma’s 20 largest clients have a combined annual turnover in excess of £150bn and rely on Adarma’s expertise to help protect sensitive data covering over half of the UK population.

With over 250 staff and experience spanning over two decades, Adarma provides a broad range of IT security consulting, solution and services with deep expertise in threat management including Security Operations Centre (SOC) design, build and operation. Adarma helps large enterprises to establish operational security capabilities including in-house, co-managed and fully managed SOC environments. The company’s expertise also helps clients to extend existing SOC capabilities to respond to evolving threats and establish a high-value proactive approach to hunting and effectively defending against attackers through addressing control gaps.

Our investment will support the management team at Adarma to build a business of real scale in the growing cyber security market and focus on their core areas of expertise.


“Our decision to create Adarma is part of our desire to focus exclusively on the security space with the aim of becoming the UK market leader for FTSE 250 organisations across a broad range of industries. We are thrilled to receive backing from Livingbridge as we start this new chapter in our journey.”
