BITM is pleased to announce it has achieved the coveted and globally recognised CREST Penetration Testing accreditation.
This accreditation sets BITM apart from its competitors as it is now recognised internationally for offering a service that delivers the highest security standards to its customers.
BITM is one of a hand-full of South African based businesses accredited by CREST for this discipline.
“BITM is one of a growing number of cyber security services companies that recognises the benefits of CREST accreditation and its growing influence around the world,” said Rowland Johnson, President of CREST.
“With an innovative approach to IT security, BITM is now able to demonstrate that its penetration testing services have been validated to the highest standards by successfully going through the rigorous CREST accreditation process, covering business processes, data security and testing methodologies.”
CREST Penetration Testing accreditation
To provide the accreditation, CREST assessed BITM’s penetration testing services – which are designed to identify and test potential vulnerabilities in an organisation’s cyber security infrastructure.
Its penetration testing services were evaluated according to industry standards using a suite of CREST-developed maturity assessment tools.
CREST found that BITM’s penetration testing service offered a robust security solution to its clients providing assurance in comparison to unaccredited alternatives.
BITM has always focused on aligning its penetration testing services with its clients’ needs and global standards, and this CREST accreditation is proof its philosophy is paying off.
“This accreditation shows that BITM’s penetration testing service aligns with the highest legal, ethical, and technical standards,” said Christo Coetzer, Founder and Director of BITM.
“We are delighted to achieve this coveted status and remain dedicated to serving our customers accordingly.”
