Local Cyber Security company achieve prestigious CREST certification

equilibrium_logoEquilibrium Security are Cyber Security specialists who are based in the heart of Birmingham.  They are industry experts who add value to businesses by keeping their network safe from cyber-threats.

As a specialist security provider in the industry, Equilibrium value the importance of achieving the highest security certifications.  Although they have been carrying out penetration tests for over a decade, they are proud to announce they have recently achieved the prestigious CREST accreditation for their penetration testing services.

This accreditation is a proven cyber security framework which demonstrates their up to date knowledge of the latest vulnerabilities and techniques used by real attackers.  In order to achieve this certification you must undertake a series of thorough examinations which are assessed and approved by GCHQ and NCSC.

Becoming CREST accredited penetration testers is the highest accolade within this field.  This is a great opportunity to show potential customers that they are the go-to specialists for all penetration testing services.

Ian Glover, President of CREST:
“CREST is delighted to welcome Equilibrium Security as a member company.  To become a CREST member, companies go through a very demanding assessment process that examines test methodologies, legal and regulatory requirements, data protection standards, logging and auditing, internal and external communications with stakeholders, as well as how test data security is maintained.  By becoming a CREST member, Equilibrium Security is demonstrating to its customers and to the Industry as whole, its commitment to consistently delivering the highest professional security services standards.”

Anish Chauhan, Director of Equilibrium Security Services:
“I am absolutely delighted that we have been awarded our CREST certification.  We already adhere to a very high standard of cybersecurity in general and of course penetration testing methodology and procedures; now we have the accreditation to demonstrate this.  As a business we’re continuing to grow but we have no intention of compromising  on quality and this accreditation is testimony to this.  We’re very much looking forward to providing new and existing clients with CREST approved penetration testing services.”

What makes Equilibrium different?
Equilibrium Security has been undertaking penetration tests of varying types over many years and are well equipped to understand the practicalities of testing complex systems without inhibiting business productivity.

Whilst most penetration testing companies simply carry out the test and provide a report of the findings, Equilibrium offer an ongoing testing service. This involves working alongside their customers to remediate the issues found and help to build their security defences. They do not recommend undertaking penetration tests as a one-off activity. In order to protect your infrastructure you must have a proactive approach to tackling emerging threats.
