As the boundaries of the digital world continue to proliferate at an exceptional rate, so does the perimeter of the cybersecurity challenges. In most cases, companies fail to comprehend the risk factors that could devastate their existence, let alone understand them and tackle them effectively. One company, Italy-based Alascom would rank much higher than its market peers when it comes to this—being the ideal cybersecurity partner. With customer-centricity embedded into the very DNA of their business approach, Alascom provides an array of tailor-made solutions accompanied with cost-effective, quality services in the field of IT, networking, IoT security, and cybersecurity.
“Our motto is Listen, Elaborate, and Provide fast. Being a strongly client-focused company and serving a market segment which is fast evolving, we fulfill this motto through an innovative vision and constant monitoring of the IT market and its technologies, trends,” states Marco Scuri, Owner, Alascom. Founded two decades back to provide system integration solutions and consulting services in telecommunications, Alascom has since then extended its portfolio of offerings in IT consulting, multi-cloud, workplace digitalization, IT optimization, compliance, and more. However, the domains that more reflect the company’s stringent focus on innovations, addressing emergent trends, and its “360-degree customer approach policy” are IoT security and cybersecurity.
“The rise of IoT has resulted in a steep rise of cybersecurity threats. To me, both automation solutions and human competency are the prime factors for a successful cyber defense strategy of an organization these days,” mentions Scuri.

Thus, resonating with Scuri’s vision, Alascom provides both innovative, tailor-made solutions combined with services that aim to increase cybersecurity knowledge and competency of the client’s workforce. The firm trains clients about the precise operations and risk factors of web and IoT networks, prediction of “unusual events”, enhancement of threat mitigation capabilities, proper safeguarding of their protection filters, and periodic improvement of their risk postures. By using deception technology behind the enterprise firewall, Alascom can support enterprises to detect better attackers that have penetrated their defenses with a high level of confidence in the events detected to span multiple layers within the stack, including endpoint, network, application, and data. Applying software-defined perimeter (SDP), we define a logical set of disparate, network-connected participants within a secure computing enclave, removing the assets from public visibility and reducing the surface area for attack.
Alascom’s world-class Security Operation Centres (SOCs) deliver customized, remote security monitoring solutions in risk modeling, threat predictions, and automatic risk mitigation. In addition, the centers also facilitate clients with end-to-end, quality support services that are provided by competent cybersecurity professionals such as operation engineers, security solution architects, and analysis and machine learning engineers.
Alascom’s unique value to its clients in the cybersecurity space can be better comprehended from its partnership with a global oil and gas company. Alascom assisted the firm in creating a centralized solution to migrate all their web traffic from multiple branches into the company’s headquarter location for better data management and governance. To secure the solution, Alascom also added numerous threat prevention measures. The customer could hence seamlessly monitor their entire data workflow from a single plane and have global control over their security activities—security response speed was increased by 90 percent.
Alascom currently emphasizes on strengthening its cybersecurity solutions by combining different technologies such as AI, advanced threat prevention, security segmentation, and embedded security to increase its competency in IoT and other verticals. This is the company’s first step to expand out of Europe based on its advanced offerings and ultimately fulfill its grand vision—becoming a global cybersecurity force.
