Fintech security assessments

Application security testing

If your organisation is responsible for developing fintech software and applications, security testing is of paramount importance. Security testing is mandated by several compliance standards, but it is also critical for helping you win customer confidence and protect your reputation.

As a CREST-accredited provider of security assessment services, including web application testing and mobile application testing, we can help you conduct tailored assessments to mitigate your unique security risks.

We work closely with our clients throughout the assessment process, from initial scoping of requirements through to reporting and remediation of vulnerabilities.

Security monitoring

Fintech security monitoring

Regardless of the size of your business, you are not immune to cyber-attacks. A persistent adversary is capable of breaching even the most sophisticated defences, and the sensitive data held by you and your customers could be an attractive target. It is essential to have the ability to detect and respond to threats, but building this capability in-house can be unrealistic for all but the largest enterprises.

ThreatDetect™ is an outcome-focused Managed Detection and Response service that supplies the people, technology and cyberoffensive intelligence required to proactively hunt for threats and shut them down before they cause damage and disruption to your business. ThreatDetect will help you to improve threat visibility, ease the pressure on in-house teams, accelerate incident response and facilitate regulatory compliance.
