We do not play by the rules.

In the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity, occasional and limited pen-testing is no longer a sufficient defence against the relentless onslaught of cyber threats.

CovertSwarm’s team of ethical hackers offers a lifelike breach and attack simulation (BAS) service that exposes flaws in an organisation’s systems before they can be exploited by real threat actors.

Unlike traditional pen-testing approaches, CovertSwarm delivers BAS services repeatedly, aligned with technology changes, ensuring continuous and comprehensive protection for their clients. With a focus on genuine value and unparalleled cybersecurity levels, our BAS services transcend the limitations of outdated snapshot approaches.

At CovertSwarm, we don’t play by the rules of conventional pentest consultancy. However, we always adhere to mutually agreed-upon rules that define the circumstances and conditions under which we launch simulated cyber breaches and attacks on clients. Our priority is to never put their systems at genuine risk of harm.

Our BAS services are powered by our fully-employed and vetted Swarm of ethical hackers, equipped with the expertise to uncover previously undetected risks that could lead to security breaches and cyber-attacks. As one of the few cyber vendors globally accredited by the Council for Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST) for Simulated Targeted Attack and Response, CovertSwarm stands at the forefront of cybersecurity innovation.

In a world where technology moves fast and bad actors move faster, traditional pen testing’s snapshot approach becomes outdated before it even reaches your inbox. Through our one-off and subscription-based testing approaches, we forge meaningful relationships with your team, gaining a deep understanding of your business, people, and technologies.

CovertSwarm goes beyond digital vulnerabilities, exploring weaknesses in physical and social environments to provide a comprehensive view of an organisation’s attack surface. By adopting a context-aware testing approach, we ensure that every breach point, whether digital, physical, or social, is identified and addressed.

How we are different

- CovertSwarm breaks away from conventional cybersecurity consultancy by delivering innovative red team services. Via CovertSwarm's subscription model, companies around the globe and all sizes are attacked each month to test their vulnerability and keep them one step ahead of the bad actors that will attempt to attack them in the same way.

- The above is comprised of 62 different attack vectors across physical, digital, and social methods to identify an organisation's weak spots. These are constantly evolving and adapting as the industry demands it to. Our latest data shows that more than a quarter of the attack vectors we deploy lead to vulnerability identification and solutions to be more resilient in the future.

- Through the subscription model, CovertSwarm enhances its clients' security through an ongoing attack simulation emulating real-world attackers. Our global team of seasoned ethical hackers, accredited by CREST, ensures thorough and realistic attack simulations. Through a subscription-based model and an intuitive attack surface management portal, clients retain continuous control. They have access to a swarm of attackers with years of expertise, enabling them to proactively stay ahead of evolving cyber threats.
