Case study summary


United Security Providers were faced with a challenge: how to reach the target audience consistently, publicise internal expertise, and at the same time control costs per contact? United Security Providers decided to use Cotide to conduct a benchmark study, focussing on the important area of Zero Trust in IT security.

This example shows how Cotide's platform enabled United Security Providers to position itself with its target audience and stay top-of-mind with the topic of zero trust architecture.

The challenge was to find more effective methods to sustainably position the topic of zero trust architectures with the target group and always remain top-of-mind. This was to be done as automatically as possible, while at the same time establishing a continuous system for market research, communication, and identification of interested parties.


The aim is to develop a long-term and efficient strategy to continuously address the target group and communicate the complex topic of zero-trust architecture. Through targeted marketing measures, strategic partnerships and the use of innovative technologies, United Security Providers strives not only to reach potential customers, but also to retain them in the long term.

Solution Implemented

With the help of Cotide, United Security Providers launched a benchmark study focussing on Zero Trust and new threats from artificial intelligence (AI) in collaboration with the University of Applied Sciences in Business Administration Zurich (HWZ) and industry experts like CATO Networks and Futurae.

The comprehensive Cotide software platform was used to orchestrate and manage the entire campaign, from contact enrichment to data analysis. Strategic partnerships with recognised companies in the industry were also used to increase reach.

The Zero Trust benchmark covers the following dimensions:
