Case study: protecting people through email cybersecurity

Protecting people, businesses and brands through email cybersecurity

Spotlight on our partner SMX, they're a 25 year old company who are now operating in scale up mode and experiencing rapid growth. SMX is all about protecting people, businesses and brands through email cybersecurity. Like us, their first focus externally and internally is people. We are stoked to be a part of their journey.

I can endorse without question the skills, experience, insight, wisdom, and talent of the Sprout team. These professionals wrangled and nudged our 'culture crew' to define some outstanding people-made values that have inserted themselves so naturally in our business; providing the strong scaffolding of an aligned purpose-values-strategy that I know has already strengthened and clarified our business.

Richard Fraser, CEO

Together we've helped uncover SMX's values, design performance development programs to elevate their people, and hired 10+ employees with a focus on the mindsets required to thrive in the SMX environment. Here's why our team loves partnering with SMX:

SMX appreciates that business = people. The leaders are open to tackling the tricky stuff to make things better for their people and, in turn, their customers. And they're just bloody good humans \

Pip, Sprout People Advisory Lead

Supporting SMX in its recruitment journey is exciting. The ever-evolving nature of CyberSecurity offers a fresh sector to explore, unveiling a range of roles with a blend of both technical and softer skills

Clara, Recruitment Lead

Meet Mounika Ainala

Sprout recruited Mounika to the SMX team as a Security Compliance, Assurance and Risk Specialist and so far, she's loving it.

What excites me about this opportunity at SMX is its Human-centric approach with a flat organizational structure in Cyber Security, which means more collaboration, innovation and increased success.
