A rise in breaches
The average data breach in 2021 cost £3.2m and took 287 days to identify and contain (IBM), while 57% of cyber victims disclosed that their breach was directly attributed to an unpatched vulnerability in their systems (Ponemon Research).
While we all like to think that it will never happen to us, the continual exposure of networks and services means it is increasingly common for organisations to be successfully infiltrated.
“Without proper tools, organisations can be unaware of the true extent of the vulnerabilities facing their business, until they have been exploited. Even then, they may not surface if the attack has no apparent impact, leaving their data and systems exposed for significant periods of time.
Vulnerabilities are not just linked to external opportunists and those with malicious intent. Quite often they exist internally too, allowing employees to gain privileged access due to a loss of focus on permission levels and security credentials.”

Whether it be as a result of an upcoming compliance audit or as a result of needing to maintain your business continuity plan, conducting a vulnerability assessment provides an insight into the current challenges facing your business
Security architecture planning
From poor configuration, legacy systems which fall outside of vendor support and neglect, to ineffective security policies and a lack of investment in security awareness or training, there are many reasons why an organisation may become more susceptible to attack over time.
Our security practitioners are able to develop solutions that cover everything from identity and access management, patching and firmware updates, security operations and business continuity management, to IT assurance and compliance.
Security remediation services
Even the most well-intentioned and resourced enterprise can only remediate a small proportion of vulnerabilities found.
This is because they often lack the skills and experience to implement the changes needed, hindered too by budget, projects and other higher priority activities. Tracking remediation efforts can often lead to the list remaining static or even growing, as new exploits are discovered faster than existing ones are overcome.
And when everything is a priority and remediation deadlines are looming, staff find themselves working ineffectively, jumping from case to case and problem to problem, often without knowing if they are working on the right thing.
Patch And Vulnerability-as-a-Service
Data centre infrastructure eventually reaches the end life and must be replaced. Fact. Maintaining legacy systems past their intended support date is risky, and in many impacts business operations, security and compliance.
As a result, IT teams struggle to respond to future business requirements, as the underlying platform doesn’t support or integrate with new technologies. If this sounds familiar, check out our packaged services below.
We look at your business holistically, identifying the additional security controls that might be needed (e.g. anti-virus or next-generation firewalls), alongside where they should be placed to best protect your employees, data and services.
We work with security and compliance teams, system owners and administrators to define and implement the right course of action, from introducing a comprehensive patching regime to enforcing policies to strengthen authentication
We go further than traditional information security testing by targeting your company the way an attacker would – by identifying weaknesses and helping to improve a multitude of defences.
From patching implementing a zero-trust model and configuring disk encryption, to employing a robust password policy, we can ensure attackers are met with a dead end, when trying to infiltrate your organisation
We provide a consultant-led Anti Phishing service, which imitates a range of social engineering attacks in a safe and controlled fashion, to increase security awareness and provide a robust security culture across your organisation
