SensePost teams up with Orange Cyberdefense

- Advertisment -

From 1 August 2020, SensePost has changed the name of its ethical hacking team and related services to Orange Cyberdefense. CEO Dominic White says this will increase the depth and breadth of their ability to help customers with the security challenges they are facing. “There are two ways we’re doing that; the first is by having our SensePost team working with the other Orange Cyberdefense ethical hacking teams, the second is, in South Africa, expanding our service offerings with more managed security services.”

More hackers in more places

“We’ve been working closely with several of the ethical hacking teams in Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, France, Norway and more to share ideas and learn from each other. This means a better quality of service – better diversity of ideas and ways of working. It’s not often you get to speak frankly with seven of your previous competitors and merge the parts into a greater whole. It also means we have more capacity and a wider geographical reach which will result in shorter lead times and faster travel times. For our people and potential future people, it means we can more easily hire across Europe or give people experiences in other countries”, White said.

More services in South Africa

SensePost will be broadening their ability to help African customers with security problems. For many years now, SensePost hasn’t been a South African only company, their UK team isn’t a separate team, they work as one. A small example of this is “the window”, a permanent video conference between offices on a wall mounted TV.

For South Africa, the company plans to widen its offerings to include additional managed security service offerings from talented teams within the wider group.

White said in his blog: “We know changes like this always raise questions of “What else will change” with the hidden question being “What will change for the worse?” I remember saying the same thing when SensePost was first bought in 2007. Our core remains the same; I joined SensePost a decade ago attracted to that core, spending the last decade living it, and now I have the honour of leading it. It’s not just me though, we still believe and live Dan Geer’s words “Work like hell, share all you know, abide by your handshake, and have fun.
