We're proud to be known as the 'Purple Tribe'.
A company is only as good as its people. This may be a cliché, but it's true and it's definitely something we don't simply pay lip service to. Our people are our most important assets and we want them to know that. Our team, fondly known as the 'Purple Tribe,' is passionate about how Performanta is pioneering in a complex market, fighting a faceless adversary, and working tirelessly to protect our customers against attacks. Passion and fun carry us forward – and it comes naturally to us.
We really care about our people because we understand that everyone is a contributor. When you work with a plethora of talent, as a collective force, our communal intelligence becomes greater than the sum of each individual. It's so strong it makes us pioneers. In an industry that has a widely acknowledged skills shortage, our employees can be highly sought after in the cyber security jobs market. Yet our retention rate remains high - that's no coincidence.
We're not afraid to be different.
We have a vision. We offer the marketplace something unique – and the market is reacting positively to it. We offer our customers uncompromising security and value and we want to take them on their own unique security journey from secure to safe.
And we don't say this with any arrogance. We certainly don't believe we know everything there is to know about the ever-changing security landscape. We are grounded and always work hard to ensure we keep learning. This dynamism enables us to expand as we work within frameworks that don't already exist because we're creating them. It's what pioneers do. We like to call ourselves 'amazing amateurs'.
WE DON'T WANT TO SETTLE – WE WANT CHANGE.
We have a culture of recognition for high performance, accountability and responsibility. And our team often out-perform against goals. We strive to maximise our inherent potential in every team member and our values of respect and dignity are pervasive across our global offices.
We're proud to have created a culture where our people feel safe enough to be themselves, where they have a voice and can share ideas. It provides us with a sense of entrepreneurial spirit that drives us to keep exploring and learning. We don't just want to settle, we want to disrupt the status quo until we find the right path that leads to better security for our customers.
Performanta is a place where we love getting things done well. We see quality as a currency. In the world of cyber security, where there is genuine confusion and panic, quality is the strongest currency there is. It is what keeps our customers coming back to work with us again and again.
