Infrastructure Solutions: Pentesec are experienced in a wide range of business types and establishments from SME’s to large financial organisations. Our staff are able to draw on experience of what works and what doesn’t, and define, design and deliver the best technical infrastructure solution to meet and exceed your requirements. We also ensure the solution is scaled realistically to meet financial constraints, for usability and for ongoing management overhead. Our partnerships with leading vendors enable us to offer the most competitive pricing and to achieve bespoke and tailored packages that are specifically suited to your needs, and not just a one size fits all ‘off the shelf’ solution.
Compliance Preperation: Preparing for a compliance audit can be a stressful time for any team. Pentesec’s consultants are experts in Compliance, and have helped numerous clients achieve their compliance goals. We can take the stress out of the preparation for an audit, from ensuring technical specifications are met, right through to educating users and defining the supporting processes and policies. From PSN and PCI-DSS to ISO 270001, we have a wealth of experience in helping organisations of all sizes achieve their compliance goals.
Security Health Check: A detailed review of the security associated with any part of an environment, from a single system to the entire enterprise, undertaken by a CISSP qualified security consultant. The assessment is tailored to suit the client requirements, but usually includes aspects of physical security, network architecture and defences and underlying process. The resulting report is presented by the reviewing consultant and will include recommendations for improvement as appropriate.
Technical Design Documentation: From high to low level design the consultants at Pentesec can guide your organisation in defining the appropriate goals or requirements, dependencies and deployment considerations to progress project related activities or general deployment and/or BAU operations
Security Training: With the ever increasing threat of Cybercrime and information security breaches it is essential for any organisation to educate their user base and develop the proficiency of their existing IT team. At Pentesec we offer a wide range of security training options to suit all requirements from vendor driven certificated training, policy and process direction to skill sharing and customised training packages.
Project Definition: Project definition documentation is a key part of the scoping process and ensures that all aspects of the client requirements have been adequately captured and are addressed by the project scope. Pentesec architects work closely both with client-based teams and other contracted third parties to ensure that each element of the project related to network infrastructure and security is included and properly assessed for scope. The resulting documentation is fed back into the project management team for inclusion in the planning phases of the project.
Ad-Hoc Support: In addition to our regular contracted support services, the Pentesec support team are able to engage on an ad-hoc basis (pay-to-play) to assist clients who find themselves with issues that are not otherwise covered by regular support routes. With access to escalation through both the on-site delivery and consult teams, no technical issue is viewed as unresolvable.
Implementation Planning: All projects require accurate and complete planning and scheduling for successful completion. The Pentesec Consult and Delivery teams work closely with our architects to ensure that every step of the implementation process is analysed, documented and can be scheduled by project management. Direct liaison through the life of the project ensures that any changes can be reviewed and assessed if required.
Technology Assessment and Selection: The Pentesec technology-agnostic approach to all engagements places our specialists in a unique position to drive technology assessment programmes for large and small scale projects. As part of the solution definition process, the vendor and product platform must be considered and it is common to perform product comparison “bake-offs” to ensure that a given product and vendor can truly meet all of the project functional criteria. Discuss your requirements with one of our technical pre-sales team to find out how Pentesec can help you positively assess solution options for your next project.
Security Auditing: All aspects of security operations auditing undertaken for any requirement. Be that industry standard compliance e.g. PCI or internal infrastructure auditing for cost analysis. Speak to Pentesec about how we may be able to drastically reduce your year on year software subscription and licensing costs!
Enterprise Architecture: Of course security doesn’t start and end with a firewall. A firewall is a key component, but Pentesec understand and are experienced in the delivery and management of your whole security “ecosystem” including but not limited to Firewalls, Authentication, Audit logging, Intrusion Detection systems, Web and Email Filtering, End Point Protection, and Security Management. We help you to get the best out of these individual elements and show how they can work together in an effective and manageable way.
Technical Project Resourcing: A key challenge to all businesses is making sure they have the right people in place to deliver against a requirement whether that requirement be new systems, ongoing BAU activities such as change and incident management and resolution; or any other project deliverable. Pentesec can provide short or long term human resources who can hit the ground running to ensure your project is progressing right from the off utilising in house staff or resource from a network of trusted associates who are known quantities in this field rather than the recruitment agency CV pitchers that businesses unfortunately find themselves having to deal with in the past.
Whatever your security need, Pentesec have the knowledge and experience to deliver your requirements with efficiency. Our team strives to respond to queries and requests on the same day and to meet your needs on time and within budget at all costs.
