London, UK, 29 December 2016 – Sapphire, Trusted Security Partner, today announced its formal membership of CREST for the delivery of penetration testing services.

of CREST to our existing portfolio means that we can provide a full complement of accredited services to our clients across all sectors.”

Penetration testing is a critical element of your IT security strategy. It enables an organisation to gain accurate visibility of what vulnerabilities or misconfigurations could be leveraged by an attacker to damage critical business operations or access sensitive information. Using an organisation with long-term expertise in this field is crucial.

Sapphire provides a range of penetration testing services including vulnerability assessments, mobile device configuration, social engineering and break out testing.

Sapphire’s other services and solutions enable organisations to get a good understanding of their existing security posture, how to improve or enhance it and where needed, adhere to industry best-practise and compliance guidelines.

CREST is a not for profit organisation that ensures companies who wish to carry out testing have access to regulated professional services provided by consultants who have up-to-date knowledge of the latest vulnerabilities and techniques used by hackers.
