Rachel Jones, head dragon, said:  “This is a hugely positive and exciting day for us all, particularly while everyone is in lockdown, and must be celebrated. 

“Recognition for innovation with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise will undoubtedly strengthen our position as a leading player in the online brand protection market – about which we are thrilled”
