Why Penetration Testing Services from Bridewell?

Our assessments can test people, process, and procedures as well as technological controls.

None of our assessments are ‘out-of-the-box’; Bridewell collaborates with every client to develop a framework that assesses specific areas of concern in line with business objectives.

Bridewell have worked with clients in some of the most highly regulated and critical industries and understand the unique business challenges and risks faced by these sectors.

Bridewell is accredited by CREST, the OSCP, Zeropoint Security CRTOs, are Tiger-certified, and possess Certified Cyber Security Consultancy status with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

After completing an engagement, Bridewell will collaborate with your internal security team to enhance your cyber defences and resolve any vulnerabilities that were found.

Bridewell’s assessments are goal-oriented and accurately simulate the tools, tactics and procedures that would be used by a real-world attacker.

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.
