Overview

Cyber Security for Technology companies

Organisations in every industry sector use technology to improve efficiency and drive innovation and profitability, but the sheer pace of change can often lead to serious security considerations being overlooked.

As a leader in the tech space, your customers depend on your products on a daily basis – on the assumption that their security won’t be put at risk. They also rely on you to put cyber security measures in place to protect your technology and the sensitive data it processes.

Security assessments for tech companies

Application security testing

If your organisation is responsible for developing software and applications, comprehensive security testing is a must. Security testing is mandated by several compliance standards, but it is also critical for helping you protect your intellectual property and win customer confidence.

As a CREST-accredited provider of security assessment services, including web application testing and mobile application testing, Redscan can help you conduct customised assessments to better defend your technology against the adversaries seeking to compromise it.

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

Managed Detection and Response

Regardless of the preventative security controls in place, a persistent and well-resourced adversary will eventually find a way to breach your defences. The sensitive data held by you and your customers is an attractive target for cybercriminals, so it is essential to have the ability to detect and respond to threats as swiftly as possible.

ThreatDetect™ is an outcome-focused Managed Detection and Response service that supplies the people, technology and threat intelligence required to hunt for and shut down threats before they can 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 achieve regulatory compliance.
