delivery and management of

business-critical technology solutions

 

 

askaris

We can trace our original roots back to 1995 when a small Internet services consultancy was founded in Northumberland, United Kingdom.

Over the years...

 … we have worked with UK Defence, UK Government organisations, Manufacturing, Banking and Oil & Gas.

We are proud to say...

… our business is going from strength to strength with recent contract wins in the Middle East Oil & Gas industry for our software products, to growth of our security services – the backbone upon which the business was built.

partners

Askaris partnerships are built from a combination of robust, proven products and long term personal relationships.  For instance, we have worked with Check Point since V3.0b in the late 1990s right up until the present day.  We also have business peer relationships where our services and expertise dovetail to those of our partners – some of which we have worked with for over 15 years.  We also believe in forming ethical partnerships where we treat our partners and product vendors in such a way we expect to be treated in return, and in our experience that provides us with great products and services that ultimately benefits our customers.

Technology Partners

ObserveIT’s lightweight endpoint solution helps organisations—particularly large enterprises—identify and eliminate insider threats. We provide detection and prevention to enable proactive defence against both malicious and negligent user behaviour from employees, privileged users, and third parties.  With ObserveIT, organisations can significantly reduce the risk of security incidents by monitoring user behaviour and offering real-time education and deterrence. ObserveIT cuts investigation time from days to minutes and offers full playback of security incidents to improve response times and simplify compliance.

Askaris are involved in several large scale projects to implement solutions to mitigate the insider threat using ObserveIT.  The value of the solution lies not only in the deterrent it provides, but the ability to detect and alert on suspicious behavioural changes as they occur.  The prevention of one case of data leakage by the solution could easily pay for itself.

DROPPED OBJECTS PROGRAMME

ARCUS-DROPS provides management of potential static and dynamic dropped objects on your offshore and onshore assets.

  • Recording of detailed safety securing and retention methods.
  • Asset scheduling aligns itself with your Preventative Maintenance regime.
  • Photos help identify assets and are also used to support corrective action resolution and close-out.

LIFTING GEAR INSPECTIONS

The ARCUS-LGI solution provides structured inspection and validation of items such as Loose Lifting Gear, Cranes and Winches. The services enables customers to provide a simple inspection process of their own assets and allows third-party inspection companies to quickly and accurately locate and inspect assets. This improves the efficiency of the inspection process and as a result, will reduce the end cost. Through the use of the cloud portal, certificates can also be generated, issued and electronically attached to each asset.

ELECTRICAL INSPECTIONS

Effective and controlled preventative maintenance is a must for electrical equipment located within the hazardous areas of an offshore and onshore facility. The ARCUS-EX service allows the identification and tagging of EX assets and provides an inspection process which is pre-defined in line with your companys PM System. Each item of equipment is tagged with a unique RFID (HF) tag which will provide detail, certification, documentation and inspection history with real time reporting.

HOSE INSPECTIONS

The ARCUS-Hose service provides the identification and tagging of hose assets using multiple tags, providing real time reporting of location and condition. Detailed recording of asset details such as manufacturer, length, flange types, purchase date, supplier, wall thickness and tolerance measurements etc. help provide an analytical view to aid preventative maintenance. The pre-defined inspection can then be carried out in line with existing customer PM System.

BOLT INSPECTIONS

Regular inspection of bolts and the area surrounding them is imperative to mitigate against corrosion in the harsh environments of the Oil & Gas Industry. The ARCUS-Bolt service identifies the bolts included in the scope of that inspection with a master tag and photographic evidence ensures bolts are inspected. Provides inspection criteria including items such as tap test, torque and visual checking and supports up to 20%/5 year inspection rotation. Colour coding may also be used to provide an immediate visual check of inspection status.

BLOWOUT PREVENTER INSPECTIONS

The ARCUS-BOP service records the identification, journey and maintenance history of sub-assets with a real time audit trail. Using very robust and durable RFID tags to tag BOP sub-assets, tested to 10,000ft depth and several years repeated sub-sea use up to 6 months at a time.
