Why choose Firesand as your pen testing partner?

Expertise and Experience

Our engineers, consultants, and security architects have decades of experience in businesses across many industry verticals, so you can be sure that we’ll understand how to protect your specific business from the exploitation of hackers

Industry-Leading Qualifications

We hold the most respected technical qualifications and certifications in the cyber security and data privacy industries, including: CISA, CISSP, CISSP-ISSAP, CISM, FIP, and many more. This means that we can guarantee that our testing is as rigorous as it gets.

Options for Every Budget

Whether you’re a large organisation with a complex IT infrastructure or a small business looking to quickly and easily manage its risk, we have options tailor-made to suit you. From bespoke, deep-dive testing to streamlined, automated essentials—all available for a monthly, flat fee with no upfront costs!

Clear, Comprehensive Reporting

At Firesand, our team takes personal responsibility for communicating the pen testing report to you—explaining it, as well as guiding you through any additional security steps you must now take. You will speak directly to named experts in the team; no service desks, no call centres.

Penetration testing: we’ll attack you. And you’ll thank us.

Until you’ve exposed your systems to the hacker’s perspective and mindset, you can have no real confidence that your organisation could genuinely detect and respond to an attack.

This is hugely worrying, given that:

  • Hacking tools are now widely available as a service for as little as £5 a month - potentially turning your organisation into a hacker playground! 
  • Customer attrition increases 30% in the wake of a cyber incident and doesn’t return to normal until three years later! 
  • Small does not mean safe – According toUK Government figures42% of micro and small businesses identified at least one breach or attack in the previous twelve months.

Our penetration testing (pen testing) services turn the tables on the hackers, using their methods to launch controlled, ethical cyber attacks against your organisation, enabling us to expose (and close) the security holes.

Pen testing: why bother?

According to the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) 2017 / 2018 report, cyber attacks have resulted in financial losses to businesses of all sizes in the UK – no kind or size of business is immune.

Pen testing can decisively close the gaps that let these attackers wreak financial havoc – but it delivers many other benefits too, including;

  • Reputational protection – Closing the door to cyber incidents shields you from the reputational and trading damage that public exposure inevitably causes 
  • Adherence to industry standards– Pen testing enables you satisfy a key requirement of standards including FCA, PCI DSS, HMG and ISO 27001 
  • Regulatory compliance – Pen testing can prevent cyber incidents that could put you in costly contravention of regulatory and legal provisions like GDPR 
  • An evidential business case to enable you to obtain increased investment in cyber security resources and personnel
