About Stanley Gibbons plc
With their heritage dating back to 1856, Stanley Gibbons plc is the world’s longest established rare stamp merchant. They have held the Royal Warrant since 1914, allowing them to offer a lifetime guarantee on all their rare items, and remain the only philatelist to offer this assurance. The company serves pre-eminent collectors, philatelists and numismatists all over the world, from their site based opposite the Savoy on the Strand in London.
QuoStar selected and deployed a secure communications solution for a multinational organisation, preventing 'man-in-the-middle' attacks, corporate espionage and other third party monitoring.
QuoStar migrated London recruitment company Tay Associates to a new hosted solution well ahead of their deadline and then onboarded them for fully managed IT support.
