Leading telecoms and ICT provider, Chess, is delighted to announce the official rebrand of their recent acquisition Foursys, now known as Chess Cybersecurity.

Managing Director of Chess, Stephen Dracup, opened the newly refurbished office on November 1st as the team celebrated welcoming Chess CyberSecurity to the Family. Chess CyberSecurity (formerly Foursys) was acquired back in April 2017. Located in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, Chess Cybersecurity’s team of experts service customers across the UK and have 20 years’ experience delivering cyber security consultancy to public sector, SMB, corporate and enterprise organisations.


Chess ICT already provides services including product supply and installation, storage, hosted and cloud solutions, managed services, networking infrastructure, professional services, business continuity, unified communications and systems management. It is extremely excited to add the multi award-winning cybersecurity provider as the perfect addition to its ever-extending family.

Over the last 25 years Chess has helped over 30,000 businesses grow through innovative technology and expert advice. Chess prides itself on its unique culture and is proud to have been voted 2nd in the Sunday Times Best Company to Work For awards in 2017, after eight consecutive years in the top 100.

As CyberSecurity becomes part of the £120 million-pound turnover business, there are set to be lots of exciting opportunities for people living in the surrounding Suffolk area. This includes future job opportunities in the region, along with contributions to the Bury St Edmunds community.

Chess founder and Chief Executive, David Pollock, commented: CyberSecurity is of upmost importance for any modern business. Our Cyber Team in Bury St Edmunds shares our passion for delivering technological advantage and importantly this acquisition enhances our security offering to our customers. Together with their expertise, we have the talent and technology needed to deliver truly integrated solutions across enterprise, mobile and cloud environments.”

Chess CyberSecurity Managing Director, James Miller, added: 

“With the rebranding of Foursys to Chess CyberSecurity, our focus remains on providing the best IT and Managed Security to our customers as it has done for over 20 years.  However now there is an exciting new opportunity for customers of Chess to take advantage of this level of expertise and for traditional Foursys customers to look at other ICT and telecoms offerings from the wider group and where they can potentially make savings on their budgets”.

Chess CyberSecurity consultants provide security advice, information, installation, configuration and support all of which are recognized by channel, vendors and clients alike. Chess CyberSecurity (previously Foursys) was named Sophos Partner of the Year in 2015.
