Who is Talion?

At Talion, we’re changing the way organisations interact with their Managed Security Service Provider.  Born out of BAE Systems, our service is built on first-hand knowledge of military engineering and defence-grade security, together with an in-depth understanding of the threat landscape facing the commercial world today. 

When it comes to cyber security, we believe every organisation deserves full visibility and complete control over how threats are monitored, how decisions are made, and how their business is protected. That’s why we prioritise transparency and collaboration across our service lines, implementing security programs that give businesses the control and freedom to pursue ambitions and realise goals, safe in the knowledge that we’ve got their back, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
