Advanced cyber and physical security solutions for all your security needs
Around the world, hardly a day goes by without hackers making headlines. From financially motivated ransomware attacks, to political hacktivism and espionage, threats are now more commonplace and damaging than ever.
Is your business ready to stand up to the latest threats?
When could your brand be the next cyber target?
Mitigating the risk of evolving threats is a key challenge for all organisations.
Cybercriminals are well resourced, determined and frequently change their tactics to evade detection.
Having a security partner with effective controls in place to tackle known and unknown threats is essential but with budgets being squeezed and a global shortage of security professionals, this can be easier said than done.

Our ‘offensive’ approach to cyber security
Successful defence requires a deep understanding of the latest threats. Latitude’s extensive skills and experience in offensive security means our experts can be trusted to provide the insight needed to better protect your business. Application of our ‘Z team’ hacking knowledge is central to our approach, enabling us to continually improve the effectiveness of our services.
Business growth, IT obsolescence and new technology trends mean that every organisation’s attack surface is constantly changing. Understanding and keeping on top of new security exposures is therefore central to effective cyber risk management.
Latitude’s Security Posture Assessment service helps to define, identify, classify and address weaknesses across your organisation’s network environments. Integrating specialist scanning tools and experienced security professionals, it provides the advanced level of support needed to address core vulnerabilities and removes the administrative and maintenance burdens of conducting regular security evaluations in-house.
Address risks across on-premise and cloud environments with internal, external and website assessments.
Identify wide-ranging risks and uncover vulnerabilities such as out of-date software, open ports, insecure credentials and application-level weaknesses.
Provide helpful remediation support and receive clear summary reports, with the recommendations and remediation advice needed to quickly address exposures.
Ensuring that defences are suitably hardened against advanced persistent threats is the next step in improving your business’ security posture. Determined cybercriminals will exploit any and all vulnerabilities to compromise defences, meaning rigorous appraisal by an experienced ethical hacker is important for pinpointing weaknesses that automated assessments can miss.
Latitude’s industry standard Penetration Testing service is designed to identify and safely exploit gaps across your infrastructure, systems and applications. Following proven and robust methodologies, our white hat experts attempt to safely compromise target assets and provide detailed reports that aid understanding of hidden risks and the remedial actions needed to address them.
Choose a deep, broad or balanced pen test programme to addresses your exacting requirements. We offer internal and external tests, following whitebox and blackbox methodologies.
Psychological manipulation of people into performing adverse actions or divulging confidential information is a common approach used by criminals to compromise your business’ cyber security. By creating emails and web pages that imitate those of known individuals and organisations, fraudsters aim to trick individuals into clicking dangerous links or attachments, or divulging personal information.
Latitude’s Social Engineering service is designed to thoroughly assess the ability of your organisation’s systems and personnel to detect and respond to a targeted phishing attack. By mirroring the tactics, techniques and procedures used by genuine adversaries, this custom assessment helps to challenge defences, identify data leaks, uncover weaknesses in human behaviour, and improve cyber awareness.

The Z Team Operation from Latitude is designed to far exceed the remit of traditional security test by challenging the effectiveness of technology, personnel and processes to detect and respond to an attack. The highly targeted and covert nature of the service means that engagements are usually conducted without the knowledge of all key personnel. Unlike real-life attacks they are not designed to inflict damage.
Utilise latest attack methods and the human element
Conducted over an extended period of time, a Z team Operation mirrors genuine attacks by including detailed reconnaissance and utilising latest black hat tools and techniques.
