Irvine, California, UNITED STATES

LOS ANGELES, CA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2015) - Madison Alexander PR, a boutique technology public relations and communications agency based in Irvine and Tustin, California, today announced the agency has joined the world's first specialist global security PR agency network, Code Red. Madison Alexander PR is Code Red's only agency based in the United States.

Developed to offer security vendors looking to build a profile in the competitive security market place the opportunity to work with security PR specialists globally, each member agency has been hand-picked for its in-depth experience in the IT security market place. The Code Red network covers the main geographies including: UK, France, DACH and Nordic regions, Spain, Italy, Benelux, the Middle East, Africa and the USA. Its aim is to simplify the task of marketing and corporate communications executives at security vendors in finding and managing specialist agencies to develop and execute multi-country PR campaigns, which can be coordinated either centrally or on a country-by-country basis.

"We're honored to have been invited to join this network made up of exceptional communications firms around the world," said Dan Chmielewski, principal, Madison Alexander PR. "Code Red is off to a fast start and we've offered assistance for the network's clients attending the BlackHat Conference in Las Vegas next week. We're thrilled to be a part of this organization."

The Code Red security network was founded by UK IT security specialist agency éclat Marketing to fill the gap between large multi-national agency conglomerates and small independent boutique agencies. 

"The security market is currently attracting massive security investments on an unprecedented scale and spawning a new wave of innovative security start-ups and IPOs," said Code Red founder Dianne Canham. "Businesses are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of investing in the appropriate defences against data breaches and malware and are looking for technology to help mitigate the shortage of security skills and tackle new threat vectors posed by mobile devices, the cloud and now the Internet of Things." 

She adds, "Currently CMOs at security vendors are forced to choose between global reach and security specialisation in selecting their PR partners. Now there is a viable alternative that allows them to work with a global network of experienced security PR professionals, or -- as the security profession is so fond of saying -- 'You're only as strong as the weakest link.'"

To accompany the launch of Code Red, a white paper guide to launching your company in Europe is available to download here or you can sign up for a free webinar taking place on Sep 17th entitled "A practical Guide to Launching a Security Company in Europe."
