Ethical Hacking

Proactively Identify & Detect Vulnerabilities In Your IT Systems
In today's digital age, the threat of cyber-attacks is more prevalent than ever before. Hackers constantly exploit vulnerabilities in computer systems, networks, and applications, resulting in data breaches, financial losses, and reputational damage for businesses.
The primary goal of ZDL Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing services is to identify vulnerabilities before malicious actors can exploit them. This allows our clients to take remedial action to secure their systems and prevent cyber-attacks, protecting their data and reputation.

ZDL is a leading provider of comprehensive Ethical Hacking services including:

  • Broad Security Review
  • Red/Purple Teaming
  • Security Audits
  • Penetration Testing
  • Cloud Security & Security Ops Testing
  • Source Code Review/Coding Standards
  • Social Engineering
  • Physical Security
Penetration Testing that Delivers

Not all penetration tests are equal. Standard, prescribed approaches relying on automated tests with known signatures are known to miss a high percentage of vulnerabilities. Whether web, mobile or IT infrastructure, ZDL's carefully structured approach to testing successfully identifies incursions and vulnerabilities that other ethical hackers miss.

  • Skilled expertise over and above simple software scanning1
  • Multi Platform Application Testing2
  • Frequency3
  • Mitigating the Risks & Bolstering Defenses4

We work closely with our clients to ensure that our services are tailored to their specific needs, and that our findings are presented in a clear and understandable way.

“49% of business reported having some kind of cyber security breach or attack in 2022. 27% experienced a breach or attack at least once a week.”[1]

Broad Security Review

What if you could take your testing to a strategic level where you could take the guesswork out of which systems you need to address next in your security program?

The Broad Security Review analyses your company's security from an attacker's perspective, giving a 360° view of the methods and vulnerabilities they would exploit across the business as a whole.

Tailored to your organisation's unique requirements such as infrastructure, risk profile and its business objectives; the review digs deeper then any off-the-peg security test.

Smiths Detection operates in a fast moving industry where security is paramount for both ourselves and our clients. Therefore it was imperative we worked with an experienced organisation such as ZDL who could deliver complex assignments on time to our exacting standards. ZDL have been our preferred IT Security Consulting partner of choice for 4+ years, implementing diverse projects such as testing, source code reviews, and security education and training such as social engineering for all our key users.

I would strongly recommend ZDL for organisations that are serious about improving their overall IT Security posture.

PD Ports has been working with ZDL on a number of projects since 2015. In that time they have provided us with a full 360° review of our internal processes which has enabled us to develop our cyber security strategy. Their in-depth assessment and review has enabled us to implement long-term solutions to ensure that our desired level of cyber maturity is reached and can be maintained. We are already planning our next project with ZDL, where they will further assess our cyber security strategy to ensure we are protecting the most vulnerable areas of our business. I would highly recommend their services and look forward to continuing our partnership in the future.

By engaging with ZDL we are in a much better position, where we now have a deeper and richer understanding of risk in our business. Not only this, we also now have the strategies in place to reduce these risks at pace. The service and quality we received, from first engagement to delivery of the broad security review reports (and beyond) has been excellent. I would happily recommend ZDL as a strategic cyber security partner, and I'm looking forward to continuing our relationship for years to come.

We are very proud of the continuing improvements we are making to consistently improve our overall IT security posture. Our clients demand confidentiality and security of their data and financial transactions and assurances that we are compliant with all current regulations. By working closely with ZDL we are ensuring that we have an active program of continuous improvement based on their experience and our needs. We believe we could not have achieved the level of success we have without the advice, support and guidance of the ZDL team of experienced consultants. ZDL’s attention to detail, customer satisfaction, experience, knowledge, quality and consistency has enabled my team to align our IT strategy to our business strategy providing us with real TCO and ROI.

MAP asked ZDL to conduct a number of Security Awareness Training sessions for all employees, including senior management. The sessions proved enjoyable, informative and their interactive nature kept all participants engaged. It was clear during the sessions and from subsequent discussion that awareness of today's security threats had been heightened and behaviour improved when browsing and receiving email, recognising the likes of phishing attacks, both in and out of the workplace.

The training was straightforward to arrange, cost effective and has added real value to how we mitigate against the ever growing risk and impact of cyber attacks. ZDL remain our Security Partner of choice.
