The 'Virtual Layer'

Our company name is derived from the way we partner with our clients, becoming the ‘Virtual Layer’. Our ethos is that we are always available in a virtual capacity to be called upon when our expertise or services are required.

Our Story

LayerV was founded with a clear goal.. We knew we wanted to be leading Public Cloud specialists, but we wanted the company to be based on the enterprise experience, process and best practice they brought with them. For that reason LayerV started from day 1 with partnership and service at our core.

Over time our specialism in IT Security and backgrounds has allowed us to focus on highly regulated industries, specifically Financial Services and Government.

Our partnerships with AWS and Microsoft have allowed us to provide market leading service to all sizes of client, and have fueled our phenomenal growth rate of 350% YoY.
