Security Testing

Continuous security improvement

The threat landscape is constantly evolving and what you have in place to protect yourself today, can quickly become inefficient.

Our Continuous Security Improvement Platform safely shows how effective your network, endpoint, and email security layers’ defences are against these new threats, often carefully designed to bypass them, then provides step-by-step instructions on how to close the gaps.

This enables you to:

  • Maximise the effectiveness of existing security measures
  • Obtain a continuous measurement of security posture and value
  • Prevent reoccurrence of any past incidents and cyberattacks

Our platform won’t get in the way either, as it never interacts with your production servers or computers. Instead, it uses isolated software endpoints across your network to safely exercise your live security defences.

CISO as a Service (CISOaaS)

Providing the help you need for your security strategy

If you need help with your security, we can provide an audit of your current security infrastructure and practices, make recommendations, and even prioritise and manage your new projects.

This is particularly useful for companies that need help with security strategy but cannot yet justify a full-time security strategy resource.

Moreover, as we provide security and monitoring services for many of the network and financial platforms critical the UK’s infrastructure and economy, you can be sure that your security strategy and projects will be in the safe hands of some of the most competent and diligent people in the cybersecurity world.

Security Tool Evaluation and Bake-Off

Understanding your security tools before they are deployed

When upgrading security tools like DDoS mitigation, malware sandboxes, and intrusion prevention systems, it’s important to know how they will work when deployed in your environment.

The needs and complexities of your individual scenarios are unlikely to form the basis of vendor datasheet specs, so it pays to have answers to the critical questions in advance, like:

  • What are the real tipping points of our shortlisted DDoS mitigation tools?
  • Will we need to factor in load-balancing between security tools during peak times?
  • Is that SSL/TLS decryption tool compatible with our intrusion prevention system?

Our security testing service takes the pain away from finding the tools best suited to your needs and directs you to the best security configurations and outcomes for your business.

Firewall Testing Service

Test firewalls to mitigate any negative effects on performance

Firewalls are a cost-effective and convenient way of consolidating multiple security measures to one device, however, switching on some features (like SSL decryption), will increase latency and reduce throughput and malware blocking (increasing the likelihood of an attack getting through).

Our firewall testing service addresses these pitfalls and helps companies to make well-informed decisions in three ways:

A list of specifications on the firewall datasheet might look impressive, but it says nothing about how it will cope in context to your needs.

We can safely show you exactly how these firewalls will cope when deployed in your environment, on the apps you use and with all the utilisation of your staff working patterns.

Software and firmware updates can cause issues, and the only way to find out is to safely test them, analyse the upgrade, and see how your firewall responds.

Our firewall testing service will ensure that unforeseen update issues will not affect network performance, productivity, or security posture.

New apps should improve productivity and quickly demonstrate a healthy ROI, but a firewall inspecting the app traffic for malware can slow down security filtering and network throughput – degrading quality of experience and adversely impacting staff productivity.

We can replicate your app traffic profiles and employee connections to show you exactly how your firewall will cope when you upgrade to new apps and digital services. This will help ensure your digital transformation projects are not stifled by the security tools that have been put in place to protect your company from cybercrime.
