Meet the security challenge with eyes wide open

Today, security concerns are a clear and present danger for every business. Far from falling somewhere down your list of priorities, a strategic and ongoing approach to security must take precedence. After all, what could be more important to your business than your reputation, your intellectual property, or your customers’ information? Meeting the security challenge head on, with eyes wide open, will give you a competitive edge and free you up to innovate. But with the profusion of fragmented security offerings and products in the market, it can be hard to know where to start. That’s where we come in.

Origin Security is unique in that we have a deep understanding of the entire security ecosystem and how the pieces of the puzzle fit together. This means we can offer you a bird’s eye view of the best path to your business’ ideal state. In fact, how we like to work is by helping you create a roadmap to take you there – avoiding all the wrong turns that come with a more ad hoc approach – and then going on the journey with you. We don't just advise, we stick around and help implement the changes, and then deliver ongoing managed security services to free you up to get on with more fruitful work.

Let’s get your business on the path to a safer, more prosperous future, today.

Why Origin Security?

Origin Security began life as Optinet, a specialised enterprise security provider with an exceptional track-record and reputation. Optinet has provided managed security and strategic consulting services to clients such as Vodafone, Westpac, 2degrees, New Zealand Police and Inland Revenue since 1991.

Origin purchased Optinet in 2015 to complement our managed support service, providing our clients with a unified approach to managed support and security that means issues are dealt with swiftly without falling into the gaps between providers. Because we fully understand and constantly monitor your environment, our response time is unbeatable, and your security risk is dramatically lowered.

Origin Security has attracted some of New Zealand’s most respected security analysts. Our security team is one of the biggest in New Zealand, with experience in industries ranging from defence and intelligence, to FMCG and finance.
