Physical Pentesting

Our Approach to Physical Security Assessments

Adversaries aren't constrained to your digital environment - your security shouldn't be either

We put your physical security defences to the ultimate test by simulating intrusions using the same tactics, techniques and procedures as skilled real-world adversaries.

Our red team testers aim to defeat the physical prevention, detection and response capabilities within your offices, data centres and critical infrastructure facilities in order to identify technical and systemic weaknesses.

After our assessment, you'll be equipped with the corrective actions needed to demonstrate to regulators, third parties, and customers your commitment to securing your business against the highest industry standards.

Our Physical Pentesting Arsenal & Expertise is Unmatched.

Our security experts leverage cutting-edge tactics and tools just as a real-world attackers would - to identify susceptible controls and defensive blind spots within your equipment, barriers, doors, locks, cameras, fences, alarms and even security guards.
