We can breach your systems using real-world techniques, to give you tangible, actionable information about your security.
We can help you to secure your code, configurations and infrastructure, making it more resilient to attack.
We can help you to shape the processes and cultures you'll need to manage security effectively in the long term
We believe that the only way to be more secure is to be regularly attacked, and that being able to detect and respond to malicious activity is the foundation of good security.
We believe that organisations can only be secure if their security approach respects and supports the needs of the people whose work it affects.
We believe that good information security is counter-intuitive. Our principles are different, and they guide everything we do.
We help teams to understand how attacks happen, how they can recognise them and what they can do to make breaches less likely and less damaging.
We help decision makers to understand the security risks in their services, and proportionate controls for them, so they can operate more securely.
We help leaders understand the values and principles that underpin good security, so they can help positive security cultures to flourish in their organisations.
“[The dxw cyber attack simulation] was performed to an incredibly high standard and we were very pleased with the way in which it was run, along with the output presented to us; a detailed rundown of vulnerabilities with a clear understanding of how to prioritise them, presented in a clear and actionable manner.”
“Harry and the team were incredibly fast in identifying a vulnerability that a generation of previous security experts, consultants and companies had completely failed to spot. They provided a mature, confidence-inspiring summary of the situation, including options to fix, and worked sensitively alongside our team in making sure that change was carried out well.”
“I think the work you guys did is outstanding, and makes a very interesting read. Your thoroughness is really impressive and your explanations of the vulnerabilities and their mitigations are very clear."”
dxw cyber was founded by Harry Metcalfe and Glyn Wintle. We're a growing team, committed to helping our clients to get better at security by giving them practical, focussed, pragmatic advice. Do you want to join us?
Harry founded dxw digital in 2008 and was its managing director for ten years. During this time, he was personally responsible for the company’s security operations, including hosting highly visible GOV.UK and NHS services managing large amounts of sensitive personal data.
Glyn has been a penetration tester since 2011. He's widely recognised for the technical quality and creativity he brings to his work, regularly producing zero-day vulnerabilities in widely-used software and significant findings that have gone undiscovered in previous testing.
