Who We Are

Rakatu are a leading Cyber Security aftersales and software consultancy, headquartered in the UK.
We specialize in global multi-site Cyber Security implementations.

Rakatu provides fully certified, skilled and highly dedicated Identity Access Management (IAM) and Privileged Access Management (PAM) professionals with over 20 years of industry experience to assist with the design and implementation of security solutions.

We have in-depth global PAM solution experience across multiple sectors – ranging from banking and health to telecoms and retail. Our managed solution & services approach spans requirement alignment, design, consulting, configuration, deployment and continuous monitoring & support.

We provide all these services in a friendly, inclusive and supportive manner. Our ethos, service and support are second-to-none, and driven by a continuing passion to deliver and perform for our clients – every single day.

The world of Cyber Security is one of the most challenging frontiers on our planet. By 2025, it’s estimated that 463 exabytes of data will be created each day globally – that’s the equivalent of 212,765,957 DVDs per day.

Somewhere in that number, is your data. And it’s growing faster minute-by-minute than many of us realise, or have realistically planned for. Keeping that data secure, and only accessible by the right people, at the right time, is now a task that even the largest companies on our planet can no longer realistically handle by themselves.

At Rakatu, we have made it our mission to help our clients navigate this incredibly complex and ever-changing landscape. The nature of our work takes us to the heart of our client’s systems, and over the years, we have learned that successful implementations are built on a collaborative working relationship that must transcend the standard vendor/ client paradigm. Some people call it hand-holding. We call it the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Our History

Our very own cyber security sage Dush Patel founded Rakatu to address an issue in the industry that bothered him during his long and storied career as a senior security consultant. Why, when companies were investing time, effort and capital to improve their data security, did most of the key project sponsors often know little or nothing about the how, what and why of the day-to-day engineering implemention that was transforming their company from the ground-up? And why did he so often find himself picking up the pieces of so many prior projects that had gone off the rails due to an apparent lack of co-ordination, communication and skills?

The answer he felt, was down to the intrinsic difference in DNA between the cyber security engineers and project managers, which was creating a barrier that prevented each party giving their best to the project. Dush knew he could do this better. He had built his successful career by introducing straight-talking and strong communications where none had existed before – so he decided it was time to change the engineering paradigm!

And so, Dush went about building his dream – and here is the result – Rakatu! As founder and CEO, Dush has made it his mission to build the best cyber security engineering team on the planet, and more than that – the most collaborative and communicative engineering team on the planet!

At Rakatu, we provide products and services to our partners and clients which focus on the value desired from the security engagements. Our fully collaborative community-driven approach – working with the vendor and client to blend resources – ensures that the key project objectives are at the heart of our strategy, and not bolted-on as an afterthought at the end.

This working model not only saves our client and project team a great deal of time and effort, it also creates a tremendously positive working atmosphere that brings out the best in every member of the group, and ensures that Rakatu projects are a success for our clients, and a success for the entire vendor partner team.
