Frank Smith, MD at the Macclesfield-based agency, said AppGate had an ‘innovative approach’ to network security that it would promote in IT trade press.
Context is AppGate’s first UK agency and will work alongside the firm’s Sweden-based in-house team.
It will aim to capitalise on its success in a major computer security awards last year. AppGate won the Jericho Forum Challenge, which promotes network security and mobile working.
The agency bagged the account without a pitch through its work with security consultancy Network Defence.
