System hardening

dxw has provided digital delivery services since 2008.

Over that time, we’ve often seen clients overlook security during delivery, instead coming to it late in the process.

A good penetration test or attack simulation carried out in this context almost always finds numerous critical issues.

Fixing critical issues in a product designed without the benefit of a security expert is slow, disruptive, expensive and forces teams to make trade-offs that damage security.

We believe that making a product secure from the start is more efficient and more manageable than hoping for the best and then fixing problems after the fact.

We embed security experts in teams, to help them make better security decisions

Our security experts work with client teams to help them deliver secure services.

If we've carried out an attack simulation, we'll work with you to understand and address the findings of our work, helping developers and operational teams to learn and develop capability as we go.

We'll also work with you to understand and document the security-critical parts of your product, to advise your teams as they make decisions, and to carry out regular informal security testing.

Over time, we’ll help your existing team to become more security aware, so they make better security decisions.

Our goal is to improve your team’s capability, not to make you dependent on us. So we’ll review with you regularly and adjust the number of days we provide to ensure that we’re always adding value.
