The Secura team are delighted that Rushmans, specialists in strategic events and project management, have chosen Secura’s Virtual Private Cloud hosting to support their client services.

About Rushmans

Rushmans provide a wide range of services from media and accreditation, to project management and event services. They work with global brands including Sky, BMW, ESPN, Total, BT and Pepsi, among many others.

A global company with offices in the UK, Monaco, South Africa and Cuba, Rushmans’ main areas of expertise are sports event management and strategic thinking to drive businesses forward to meet their objectives.


Rushmans’ have poured their 25 years’ of experience planning and managing sports events for clients into the recently launched online self-accreditation system, iAccredit.me.

The application is a simple to use pass printing system with banking-grade security built-in for data protection. It enables event organisers to set up and manage online applications quickly and easily, taking away the labour intensive process of accreditation and providing an efficient and cost-effective solution.

Virtual Private Cloud Hosting

Rushmans required a secure, high performance hosting solution to underpin their delivery of critical applications and services to their portfolio of global, blue chip clients.

The Secura Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) offers high availability as standard across the platform, and features VMware vSphere virtual machine (VM) level automatic failover for additional redundancy to keep vital applications available and accessible at all times.

This highly available design offers Rushmans the assurance that their systems and the iAccredit.me application will deliver the exceptional levels of performance and availability that their client base demands.

Security is also a key element of the iAccredit.me application and the VPC infrastructure supports this with a secure by design platform and network architecture, hosted within the very latest, highly secure, Tier 3 + data centre facilities. This secure, state-of-the-art environment provides the perfect technology foundation for the sensitive, confidential customer and attendee data processed by Rushmans’ applications.

The Rushmans platform within the VPC is proactively monitored by Secura’s UK-based, ISO 20000 certified service desk team, who are available 24/7, 365 days a year to respond to service requests and incidents.

Secura CTO, Dan Nichols, commented:

Rushmans work with some huge global clients, assisting with the management of some of the biggest sporting events in the world, and so it’s fantastic to have them on our platform. The scalability and security of the VPC is a great fit for the iAccredit.me application and we’re looking forward to supporting its continued growth.
