Assessment Services

Customised Assessments for your Unique Security Needs

The security landscape is an ever-shifting threat, requiring constant attention to stay ahead of attackers. To mitigate such risks, organisations must manage known vulnerabilities as well as identify new ones – a challenge for even mature security programs.

Outer Orbit provides a customised approach to each client’s environment and industry. Our consultants have expertise in a range of industries, with experience in healthcare, financial services, technology, retail, energy, higher education and public sector. We understand the compliance and security requirements our clients face, and build custom solutions to meet those needs.


A penetration test is an in-depth, highly technical security assessment testing your organizations security controls and identifying its vulnerabilities. This type of engagement utilizes the same tools and tactics as a malicious attacker, attempting to bypass and exploit security protections – so they can be corrected before being targeted by hackers.
Often mistaken with vulnerability scanning, which utilizes automated tools to identify simple flaws, penetration testing dives deeper and safely exploiting any known vulnerabilities to gain entrance to client systems.
