Testing Services

Our testing approach is designed to help you identify your security vulnerabilities, assess your risk, and develop an appropriate action plan of improvements to protect your systems. Our testing encompasses a range of technical and non-technical measures, and will provide a clear picture of your security weaknesses, and an action plan of improvements.


There are an increasing number of tools available that, according to their manufacturers, offer automated security testing. However, in our experience, successful penetrations of systems involve not only the discovery of specific vulnerabilities, but the chaining of individual vulnerabilities together to create a path through the various components of an entire system. This requires a human element alongside automation, and Stanford has over fifteen years' experience in developing a comprehensive range of successful methodologies to test a variety of systems.


Consultative approach

Our consultancy approach means that the test will be tailored specifically to your organisation, enabling your testing projects to run as efficiently as possible. In addition, our prompt reporting gives you more than just technical findings, helping you assess relative risks and plan priority remediation.
