The Challenge

Penetration testing is an annual event so is routine. Any vulnerabilities discovered are documented and then mitigated.

Business Solution

The external facing network and web servers must be penetration tested annually in line with threat and vulnerability assessments and security policies to ensure that risk of hacking and unauthorised disclosures are minimised. Westgate IT located suitably skilled penetration testing consultants, obtained agreement from the organisation that the costings were acceptable and arranged for them to do the testing work. Following testing a report was prepared and then submitted to them with recommendations for reducing risks.


The project was completed satisfactorily on time and budget and achieved its aim of minimising the risk of the organisations network security being compromised.

I have used Westgate for over 10 years now throughout all of my business ventures, helping me secure the position of fastest growing company in the South West for two consecutive years. Nigel and his team have helped us move premises without a hitch, worked day and night on a number of unexpected outage situations. They regularly assess our service levels and processes, and more recently were instrumental in us achieving Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation.
