Contract Renewal

Pentest secures million-dollar contract renewal with global technology corporation

Shearwater Group plc, the organisational resilience group that provides cybersecurity advisory and managed security services, announces that its group company, Pentest, has secured a one-year contract renewal worth $1 million, with a global technology corporation.

Under the terms of the renewal, Pentest will continue to deliver a range of vulnerability assessment and penetration testing services to the organisation. These services will continue to form a key function within the organisation's global cloud technology infrastructure.

Through these penetration testing services, Pentest performs an in-depth investigation into the organisation's resilience with the continued aim of uncovering any IT security vulnerabilities. This method is designed to simulate the actions of a threat actor, exposing and classifying vulnerabilities which could be used to exploit or damage an organisation if left unremedied.

Phil Higgins, Chief Executive Officer of Shearwater Group plc, commented:

"Securing this major contract renewal, with Pentest again being selected as the preferred supplier for a global technology client, highlights the quality and depth of work being provided by companies within our Group. Furthermore, the extension is testament to the Group's longstanding and close relationships with its customers. The Group is always delighted to be awarded repeat contracts, demonstrating the true value and trust our clients have in the IT security products and advisory services that we offer."
