Solution Validation & Penetration Testing

Putting your defences to the test, securely

One of the key fundamentals of an efficient cyber security investment is solution validation – i.e. is it effective. With the speed of change in the cyber security industry and the complexity of systems, networks and solutions there will always be vulnerabilities to exploit so it’s important to be aware of vulnerabilities on your network so you can mitigate the risk. 



BlueFort cyber assessment

A great way to get an independent 360 review of your investments is to book in a BlueFort cyber assessment. This is a top-level overview and road mapping session based around your existing environment, focusing on your investments and configuration.

Following the independent review, you will receive a comprehensive report and we will discuss any recommended improvements with you.

BlueFort can focus these assessments either across your environment or based on a particular technology investment that we specialise in, this can be tailored to suit your requirements and will be agreed up front.

Regular vs automated penetration testing

Penetration testing is a great way to identify exploitable vulnerabilities, improvements that need to be made and demonstrate the scope of a risk to build a business case. Penetration testing can be approached in many ways.

Typically, companies will outsource regular penetration tests for a regular snapshot of their network, this also works particularly well before or after a large transformation project.

An alternative approach is automated penetration testing, this runs a range of simulated attacks and scenarios at the click of a button, providing a detailed report of achievements and recommended remediation almost instantly.

Depending on which approach you want to take, we have in-house expertise and partnerships with recognised market leaders such as FireEye Mandiant and Pcysys.


User education

With the explosion of attacks, most notably email phishing and mobile phishing, cyber security user education is key to prevent your users from unintentionally helping hackers to access your network.

We recommend training and then regularly sending tests to your users to see if additional training is required, there are many great cyber security awareness training options available and we are happy to recommend to you a few of our favourites.
