London, UK - 1st July 2021 – Egress, the leading provider of human layer security, today announced it has been named as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women by Great Place to Work® UK, highlighting the organisation’s status as a leading employer in the cybersecurity industry.

Egress’ Head of HR Operations Charlotte Murfin, comments: “We’re proud to be recognised as one of the UK’s best employers for women, highlighting our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion. We know women have long been under-represented in the technology sector, and cybersecurity in particular, so year-on-year we’ve intentionally focused our efforts on improving representation and advancement for female employees at Egress. As a high-growth company that recruits globally, we’re in a fantastic position to continue generating new and equal opportunities that reflect our dedication to creating a supportive and rewarding working environment for all.”
Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK, comments: “We’re delighted to recognise so many great organisations in this fourth year of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women list. The issues affecting women in the workplace, particularly what we’ve witnessed in the face of the pandemic including parity of pay and advancement opportunities, continue to be important topics. We are proud that, thanks to this ranking and the insights afforded by our successful organisations, we can help raise awareness of the importance of fairness around pay, recognition, training and development opportunities, and work-life balance.
“What our 2021 UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women clearly show is the positive impact their practices have on business. As a result, they are better able to attract and retain women of talent, encouraging them to develop professionally and personally, and in turn, contribute exponentially to the success of the organisations they work for.”
