Our mission is to help you gain visibility of your evolving external attack surface.
Organizations of all sizes are facing formidable security challenges due to increasingly frequent and sophisticated cyber attacks. If a data breach occurs, it could lead to significant reputational and financial damage. Our aim is to protect our clients from critical security threats before they can be exploited by attackers.
At Informer, we take a proactive approach to help organizations protect themselves from cyber threats by giving them a real-time view of their attack surface and live actionable vulnerability insights.
The attack surface management platform offers the unique benefits of combining live asset discovery, vulnerability scanning, and expert penetration testing in one platform to centralize vulnerability detection and remediation.
Our experienced and highly-skilled penetration testers, developers, and researchers collaborate extensively to offer business-critical security insights that empower you to fortify and scale your security program.
“Working at Informer has been like a breath of fresh air. It’s a positive, collaborative and ambitious environment that is helping me flourish.”
Lead Developer @ Informer.
In 2014, The Security Bureau was formed as a specialist penetration testing business by our founder and CEO, Marios Kyriacou. As our client base grew, we started to see a pattern emerging when it came to scoping external infrastructure penetration tests. While establishing how many IPs and domains were in scope, it became clear that many organizations were unsure of exactly which assets were internet-facing. It was this fundamental question that Informer was designed to answer.
In 2018, the first version of the Informer platform was launched to provide full visibility of externally facing environments. As we began to take the platform to market, it quickly became apparent that there was huge potential to enrich the functionality to provide faster and more in-depth vulnerability data alongside mapping external-facing inventory.
Over the years we have adopted an ambitious product development roadmap which resulted in version 2 being launched in 2020, with a raft of new capabilities. The platform was built from the ground-up for speed and scalability, a key reason being to facilitate our manual penetration testing services being included in early 2021.
By combining continuous asset discovery, vulnerability scanning, and penetration testing in one platform, we are bringing together the power of machine learning and expert penetration testing in a single SaaS solution.
WHAT DRIVES US
We want to disrupt the traditional penetration testing process by giving our clients on-demand testing capabilities fused with continuous security monitoring. Together security teams can save valuable time and streamline remediation efforts by accessing real-time vulnerability data.
In today's fast-paced and ever-evolving world, a snapshot of your security simply isn’t enough against the backdrop of zero-day attacks, continuous deployments, constantly changing security updates, patches, and configurations. Gone are the days that an annual penetration test will give you the assurance you are not vulnerable to an attack.
Security is a board-level issue and we want to keep CEO’s out of the headlines by ensuring their organizations have the security tools they need to protect their critical web applications and infrastructure.
