Bulletproof goes to space
Written by Joseph Poppy on 29/11/19
2019 officially saw the release of our S.W.A.T. Defence® service, our advanced SIEM platform combined with experienced SOC analysts conducting threat hunting 24 hours a day. Customers for this service quadrupled this year meaning our SOC team had to grow too. We have 27 billion logs currently searchable with an average response time of < 1ms.
We realised that businesses needed to change the way they use available threat intelligence to support their security products. This led to our custom-built threat portal. It has been designed to ingest huge volumes of threat data, allowing our analysts to assess and grade threats more efficiently. We’ll be able to automate much more of our threat-hunting process by querying IP addresses or domains against an up-to-date data feed. Response times will be reduced, and our analysts will be freed up to focus on the more interesting threats, which will please them.
Putting our penetration testers to good use
We are conducting over 100 penetration tests a month for customers across every industry. Such a busy schedule meant our penetration testing team had to grow too. The team diligently uncovered thousands of flaws across applications, infrastructures and even on hardware. They also managed to collect quite the hoard of user credentials through our sophisticated social engineering campaigns.
Our compliance team have been travelling the country providing PCI DSS, GDPR, DPO, ISO and Cyber Essentials services to our growing customer base. They have been working particularly hard in the healthcare sector, notably with NHS trusts, helping them obtain and maintain compliance, providing training and generally improving cyber security throughout. We also launched our Cyber Essentials packages too, which are tiered and aimed at helping SMEs pass on their first attempt.
Our new HQ
As you may have noticed, there has been a recurring theme of growth throughout all this. As such we’ve had to invest in more space. Work has been underway on a brand-new head office, which promises new starts and adventure in abundance. It gives us more room to continue to expand our advanced and dynamic SOC, and it’s even marginally closer to the café. In 2020, Bulletproof will transition to this new office which will better serve our rapid expansion.
It just goes to show that in a few short years (and particularly in 2019), the Bulletproof team has grown at a considerable rate. This would not be possible without great people working hard to provide innovative and top-notch services.
We’ve worked all over the world: Switzerland, Germany, Ireland and India to name a few. We’re moving into a shiny new office. But we’re not stopping there. We’re moving into the US market. With office space already in hand, we’re looking to expand the Bulletproof brand into this new frontier. Building on our reputation for quality penetration tests and showing the quality of our S.W.A.T. Defence® service, we aim to make Bulletproof a name recognised worldwide.
Ultimately, the success of Bulletproof comes down to the hard work of its staff. It’s an exciting time for us as we find ourselves becoming major players in cyber security. As we expand, above all else, we want to keep Bulletproof a great place for enthusiastic and knowledgeable people to work. If you think Bulletproof sounds like a fun place to work and you have the skills and the drive to join us, why not check out our list of current vacancies. If we continue to get the right people in and they enjoy what they are doing, we’ll be able to continue to provide quality services to our customers.
To sum up: 2019 was great. And we expect 2020 to be even better.
We would like to thank our partners and customers and look forward to continuing our relationships.
