Key Challenges Addressed

Organisations that don’t regularly perform penetration testing often face challenges in protecting sensitive data and systems, maintaining compliance and customer trust, and reducing the risk of a successful cyber attack.

Penetration testing – or pen testing – helps organisations identify vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an attacker to access sensitive data, such as customer information or financial records. These vulnerabilities can also result in financial losses for an organisation, either through direct financial theft or through the costs of responding to and recovering from a successful cyber attack.

Pen testing can help organisations identify and address vulnerabilities before an attacker can exploit them, thereby reducing risk and securing their business. This also supports compliance through helping an organisaiton meet regulatory requirements by relevant industry bodies (such as the PCI DSS).

How It Works

Bridewell’s approach to penetration testing incorporates advanced remote testing solutions.

As a result, there’s no need for Bridewell personnel to be on-site unless specifically requested or desired by the customer, which can reduce potential overheads for the client as there is no requirement for dedicated space and support for on-site personnel.

Our penetration testing team consists of ex-sysadmins, developers, network engineers and system architects who bring years of experience developing and securing environments.

This ensures our assessment considers all aspects of your organisation’s infrastructure, incorporates lesser-known attacks and vulnerabilities, and considers business-impact of a potential breach.
