SALT’s SEO director, Martin Woods, said: “Having used CloudFlare’s advanced services and security products for our clients, we were already very familiar with the platform. When approached by CloudFlare, it was obvious that the company wanted a straight talking, no-nonsense technical consultancy.

“As this was part of the reason that we founded SALT, we immediately realised that working together from different sides of the planet (San Fran/Leeds) wasn’t going to be an issue.”

Having launched with a team of three, SALT now has a full-time team of eight and has moved to larger premises close to Bridgewater Place.

Reza Moaiandin, technical director, added: “The fact that it have chosen us as its technical advisors for its technical architecture and organic SEO of its site means that as one of the best in its field, the company believes in us to be one of the best in our field.”
