HARDEN YOUR SYSTEMS AGAINST ATTACK.

There's more to cybersecurity than patches, passwords, and perimeters. Default settings and misconfigurations could still leave your devices at risk of compromise.

We automate the process of finding and locking down these issues.

A list of assets with their hardening score, showing which assets are well hardened and which are not.
A list of issues effecting a specific asset, in priority order, by risk rating.
 

Automatically find issues that put your devices at risk.

Your devices undergo continuous security testing to ensure that new issues are found quickly, massively reducing the mean-time-to-detection for new issues.

Issues are displayed in priority order, so you can address the most important issues first.

 

Remediate discovered issues quickly.

Each discovered issues comes with a full description of the weakness, the risk it exposes your organisation to, and references to vendor or researcher documentation giving the full backstory where it's needed.

When you don't need the long story, remediate guidance is short, simple, and to the point.

A list of assets with their hardening score, showing which assets are well hardened and which are not.
A list of issues effecting a specific asset, in priority order, by risk rating.
 

Full team support.

Our platform has a granular permissions model that let's you control who can access what.

You can discuss issues, track remediation work, and assign tasks to your co-workers.

Penetration Testing Services

When it comes to locking down systems, there's a lot to keep track of and it's easy to miss something. Plus with so many different options for Penetration Testing and similar services, it can be difficult to know what is the best approach to achieve your goals. Our cybersecurity testing service can give you confidence in your security stance and we'll work with your team, to tailor our approach to what you're trying to achieve. Here are some examples of systems we assess:

Web Applications

With many companies now relying heavily on web and mobile applications the impact of a security vulnerability in one of these systems can be devastating. We offer testing for web technologies, covering everything from simple public brochure websites to complex web applications and Application Programming Interfaces (API).

Cloud Security

With so many companies moving workloads to major cloud platforms such as Azure and AWS, it's important to keep on top of your cloud security. We offer cybersecurity testing against cloud hosted applications, and infrastructure, as well as the cloud configuration itself.


Learn More

Infrastructure

Whether you're looking to secure an on-prem internal network or your external infrastructure services, such as email and file sharing, we can perform security testing of your systems.

Build Reviews

Staff leaving laptops unlocked over lunch or unattended on trains. What's the worst that can happen? We can review device builds to ensure they are secured against local vulnerabilities such as privilege escalation and that staff members can only access the resources they're authorised to.


Learn More

Wireless

WiFi networks are just another weak point in networks that can be targeted by attackers. We can review the configuration, encryption, and signal bleed of wireless networks to ensure that they're hardened against attack. As well as performing segmentation attacks to jump between networks.


Learn More

Firewall Reviews

Many organisations networks are configured to rely on strong perimeters; if your firewall is poorly configured then attackers may target services thought to be protected. Firewall reviews ensure that the device and its ruleset are properly hardened.

Bespoke Cybersecurity Training and Workshops

Akimbo Core deliver cybersecurity workshops all around the UK, as well as remotely. Our workshops cover a range of topics from technical subjects such as how to get the most out of cybersecurity testing, to security awareness issues within businesses.

Our workshops are tailored to your organisations needs and interests. Previous workshops have included how organisations can recognise and detect threats, including both technical measures that can be put in place to detect and block them, as well as staff security awareness training.

Our speakers are experienced ethical hackers and can give first-hand examples of how different threats can be built and delivered, such as how attackers put together attacks and “What happens next” when a staff member falls for a social engineering scam.

Benefits of our bespoke workshops:

  • Raise cybersecurity awareness within your organisation.
  • Up-skill your technical teams on how to more effectively defend your systems.
  • Deploy and improve internal protections to defend against attacks.

Your Vulnerability Management Sucks

On March 16th I had the pleasure of speaking at the Yorkshire Cyber Security Cluster about Vulnerability Management. I've included my slides from the presentation and some speaker notes on the content covered here.

HTTP Security Headers: Cache-Control

The Cache-Control HTTP server response header specifies whether the server response can be cached by the web browser and any interim devices such as web proxies. Generally, if the content of the page includes confidential information, then it should not be cached, as if confidential information is cached on user's device, and that device is a public device, or shared with other users then the information may be compromised by another user with access to the device.

HTTP Security Headers: X-Frame-Options

The X-Frame-Options header can be used to specify whether a web browser should be allowed to render the target page in a frame (such as a frame, iframe, embed, or an object tag). This can be used to prevent attacks such as ClickJacking.
