Perspective Risk (PR) was established in 2010 by Pravesh Kara and Zia Rehman. Their combination of skills created a fresh, dynamic approach to information security, winning them deep respect and a client list of household names.
In 2017, Perspective Risk became an IT Lab company. IT Lab is one of the top 50 managed service providers in the world, and top two in the UK. It’s also in the elite 1% of Microsoft Partners, with a string of accreditations to its name.
The union enabled PR to accelerate the development of new services. For IT Lab clients, it opened the door to specialist security services and the convenience of one supplier relationship.
