Is your enterprise vulnerable to cyberattacks?

If you’re not actively seeking out your weaknesses, then the answer is likely yes.

We specialise in providing information security assurance through penetration testing. This involves using an adversarial mindset, tools, and techniques to detect security weaknesses that could be exploited by cybercriminals.

Forward-thinking enterprises of all sizes and industries need to actively search out their weaknesses to fix them before they can be used against them. Ransomware has become a popular way for criminals to seek financial gain, and any vulnerabilities in your systems could leave you open to this type of attack. By using our penetration testing service, you can identify these vulnerabilities and take remedial action to strengthen and protect your people, processes, and technology.

Don’t wait until it’s too late to protect your enterprise from cyber threats. Contact us today to learn more about how our penetration testing service can identify your weaknesses and help you build a stronger, more secure organisation. With our help, you can achieve security in depth and make structural changes that will safeguard your business against cyberattacks.

Cyber Security Excellence Across Industries

Tailoring our services to meet the unique security needs of each industry, ensuring protection against ever-evolving threats.

Financial Services

We’ve acted for the most exclusive private banking institutions as well as high street banks and insurance providers.

Financial services are subject to strict regulations and compliance requirements and are often targeted by cybercriminals due to the valuable information and assets that they hold. Financial institutions store vast amounts of personal and financial data on their clients, including social security numbers, bank account details, and more. This information can be used for identity theft, fraud, or other criminal activities.

In addition, financial services handle large sums of money and conduct countless transactions daily. Cybercriminals may attempt to steal money directly by hacking into banking systems, manipulating transactions, or stealing login credentials to access accounts. They may also use ransomware attacks to lock down systems and demand payment in exchange for restoring access.

Cybercriminals may target these institutions specifically to gain access to sensitive information and exploit vulnerabilities in their security systems. This can result in hefty fines and reputational damage for the institution if a breach occurs.


Our team has extensive experience assessing multiple projects produced by a leading systems integrator and supplier to both local and central government.

We have executed multi-faceted penetration testing engagements as part of the supplier management processes for end clients, acting as an independent party to bring our offensive and adversarial tools and techniques to bear on each project before its adoption. 

Our expertise in this area ensures that our clients can trust the security and integrity of the projects they undertake with these suppliers. 


Our team has supported our highly regulated clients with specialised SCADA related engagements and assisted our clients in Oil and Gas when making acquisitions.

Companies in the oil and gas industry are susceptible to cyberattacks due to their reliance on complex and interconnected industrial control systems (ICS) that manage critical infrastructure, such as pipelines, refineries, and drilling rigs. These systems are often connected to the internet, making them vulnerable to cyber threats such as malware, phishing, and ransomware attacks.

Another reason is that the oil and gas industry is a high-value target for cybercriminals. A successful cyberattack on an oil and gas company can have significant financial and environmental consequences, as well as disruption to the global energy supply chain.


We have worked with leading players in the telecoms sector to deliver comprehensive security assessments on various systems and platforms.

For example, we provided security assessment services to a top mobile network operator for a mobile router developed by a networking giant prior to its release to the market.

Additionally, we conducted a security assessment on a web-based provisioning platform used by hundreds, if not thousands, of resellers for a major telecoms PLC operating throughout Europe. Our ability to adapt to new technologies and environments enabled us to successfully deliver value for our clients and establish ourselves as a trusted partner to the industry.

The telecoms sector faces a multitude of threats, including network and infrastructure vulnerabilities, DDoS attacks, social engineering and phishing attempts, and supply chain vulnerabilities. These threats can expose sensitive customer data and undermine the integrity of the telecoms infrastructure.

As a result, telecoms providers must remain vigilant, and work to establish robust security measures across all facets of their operations. Our team is equipped to provide the necessary expertise and support to help telecoms providers stay ahead of evolving threats, and secure their networks, customers, and sensitive data.


Our experience in the sector ranges from a high street PLC retailer in the UK to retailers operating in Europe and a privately held specialist online retailer turning over more than £400m.

As retailers increasingly move their businesses online and integrate their physical storefronts with advanced logistics and supply chains, they become responsible for managing a vast array of sensitive data, including consumer information and payment details. To ensure the protection of this data, most retailers are required to adhere to strict industry standards such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) for secure transactions.


We have acted to support a prestigious fee-paying school in assessing the attack surface, potential for exploitation and elevation of privileges from the perspective of the students.

During this exercise it was possible to use an attack chain to compromise the estate, gaining high level permissions over all assets and information. This could obviously be used to perform a ransomware attack if the adversary had criminal motives. Such an attack could render IT assets inoperable. Such an attack would lead to a loss of confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

In the event of such an adverse situation being publicised this would lead to negative coverage and besmirch the name of the establishment and perhaps by extension the high regard in which it is held.

As education establishments increasingly use online assets to provide services this can open up a wide attack surface. This is especially true in higher level education such as Universities where we have encountered hugely complex and fast changing environments where there is a blurring of the traditional lines between the ‘inside’ and ‘outside’. Further to this IT assets may be managed in a very decentralised way with a proportion of assets being used for research or teaching and therefore security may not be a high priority.

The amount of personal and work information stored in educational environments leads to a need to protect these assets. In environments where end users or students have access to IT facilities for legitimate purposes this adds to the management challenges in maintaining resilience security.


We have worked extensively with local and central government. This includes an extended project for a department at the heart of Whitehall through the coronavirus lockdown.

The Public Sector faces attacks which may include those which are politically motivated.

We understand that local governments in particular face unique challenges, with disparate technologies and sprawling networks that often include legacy assets that cannot be easily upgraded to modern standards. Our team is dedicated to working with you to identify vulnerabilities and develop mitigation strategies that address your specific needs, helping you stay secure and protected in today’s ever-evolving threat landscape.


We have extensive experience working for multiple NHS Trusts and Ambulance services as well as experience with European organisations in the medical sector.

We have witnessed firsthand the overarching goal of medical institutions to support and serve patients. Axis Pentest is acutely aware of the challenges to institutions given their operating environment and their need to carefully control access to patient data. We’ve witnessed a bewildering array of technologies, software, and services which they must operate and manage. The challenge is increased due to suppliers who, in some cases may not be able to support or maintain the deployed assets in suitable timeframes.

All this is happening on sprawling campuses which cannot be physically locked down due to the need to be open and welcoming to patients.
