Ferox started as a way of pursuing what I love - hacking.
I've always had a passion for curiosity and a burning desire to know. This curiosity, happily married with a yearning to press large red buttons I shouldn't, has in the past got me into some hot water. However, it has also given me the knowledge and capability to meaningfully help others.
Information security is no longer confined to the bedrooms of 80's kids. It's shed its cool persona, and now has a vapid corporate reach extending its greasy fingers firmly into the mainstream. Cyber security is harassing the public consciousness to death with scare stories of Russian hackers and teens destroying countries.
The truth is, hacking is a marvellous joy of puzzles, secrets, mysteries, and code. It's something every business needs, and it's something Ferox can provide.
Ferox Security offers an outstanding array of services. The driving force of my love for this profession can be at your fingertips. We provide extraordinary cyber security solutions, with a bespoke, personal approach to help your business.
We don't provide off-the-shelf products, but tailor our services to the specific needs of your business. If that sounds like what you need, contact us.

Ferox provides manual, bespoke penetration testing based on business needs. A penetration test attempts to break into your business to find your security problems and fix them. All testing conforms to OSSTMM, and you can read more about how our penetration tests work on our services page.
Open-source intelligence, or 'OSINT' is the practice of finding and analysing information already in the public domain. If you're concerned about what information is available about you, or you're looking for information about someone else, Ferox is here to share our exceptional expertise.
If you're developing a website application, or just need the assurance of security, we can provide services to suit. Ferox happily offers web-app testing for any size application. Testing is done manually and is offered dependent on individual, bespoke requirement.
Ferox provides data recovery and forensic analysis services, cohesive with criminal or civil investigations. Though no business nor individual will ever wish for the occasion when they need digital forensic services, ours comes with re-assurance, an open ear, and clarity.
Usually security consultancy applies to the very general and the very specific. If you're in need of an over-arching guide hand in your business security, or if you're looking to solve a very specific problem, get in touch. Every business need will be different, and Ferox can accommodate them all with our bespoke approach.
