What we do

We perform penetration tests on your infrastructure from the internet or within your organisation. Or for the most complete perspective, from both. Weaknesses in your infrastructure will be scrutinised for footholds or direct routes that could compromise your systems.

Internal Perspective Testing

This is how to gauge the security of IT systems that are separated from the internet. Tell us the data you’re concerned about (e.g. customer records or employee payroll information). We’ll connect to the LAN and try to gain unauthorised access, then brief you on the steps we took to get there.

Internet/External Perspective Testing

We can flag weaknesses in internet-facing IT systems, ranging from routers to email servers and web servers hosting e-commerce sites. We might even find risks in services you didn’t know you had. We recommend a review at least annually, or when multiple system changes could have introduced risks.
