3Columns is the result of one man’s determination to provide a reliable cybersecurity partner to address security issues faced by every company. Founded in 2017, it was the brainchild of Amit Singh, a consultant with 15+ years in the Cybersecurity industry under his belt. He was concerned about the future prospects of small and medium businesses during a time when even global giants are vulnerable to hacking. This was the year when a wave of high-profile cyberattacks dramatically affected major organizations such as Sony and Equifax, causing significant data and revenue theft, loss of consumer confidence, and reputation damage.
The decision to build 3Columns was strongly influenced by a recently introduced law in Australia requiring companies to disclose privacy breaches, which they were not obliged to do prior to the law.
Amit understood that one of the major causes for these breaches were firewalls being passed off as comprehensive cybersecurity solutions, with marketing being embraced more than technical facts. With rigorous testing—and breaching—firewalls for clients, Amit would then pinpoint areas where they were vulnerable, thereby effectively securing them.
What started as a one-man project has now grown into a team of like-minded consultants and engineers that bring nothing but sterling cybersecurity service. 3Columns has since partnered with business owners by delivering a comprehensive range of end-to-end technology services, including:
- Network Services
- Unified Communications
- Data Centre Design
- Cloud Solution
