Our Story

Our Story

Who we are

We are a small team from Yorkshire, England, who saw a gap in the market for a vetted preferred supplier list for cyber security and data protection. We identified that there was no one-stop-shop, no single portal, no single place people could go to find trusted solutions to the problems they were having. If we couldn’t find the solutions we needed, how could anyone else? And so ALLOWLIST was born.

Our founder is a 20-year veteran of the information security industry, our creative director has over 20 years’ experience in the design, creative and marketing industry, and our commercial and customer director is an expert in connecting people to the right solutions. We bring with us our Yorkshire values of trust, honesty, and decency. We respect a good day’s work for a good day’s pay. We believe in treating people equally and fairly.

What we stand for

We want customers to get the quality solutions they need at a price that is right for them. Our mission is to improve both the quality and the speed of the sourcing and purchase of cyber security and data security solutions, and to hold those businesses to account in terms of their credibility and their customer service.

What makes us different

Other than being the single place for all things cyber security and data protection, there are a number of things that make us more than just an advertising list:

Everyone on THE LIST has been checked and vetted for business credentials, insurance, certificates, and relevant qualifications.

Everyone on THE LIST has been or can be ranked, rated, and reviewed for social proof and feedback.

Everyone on THE LIST can be contacted directly; we have removed the middle-man, the reseller, the gate keeper.

Everyone on THE LIST is part of a community that works together to give customers the best possible quality solutions.

Every web-based transaction is free of commission or fees; you and your customer reap the rewards.

It’s time for a change
