Security starts with trust

Data security today is no longer optional. New legislation and countless data breaches have put the need for secure databases front and centre.

Beacon was built from the ground-up to be hosted securely in the elastic cloud. Our scalable and robust global infrastructure enables Beacon to stay ahead of the curve and offer a secure, reliable, and GDPR compliant environment.

"Keeping your data secure is the most important thing we do at Beacon."
