Our consulting is unbiased

We do not sell security products or equipment, such as firewalls, antivirus software, and so on. This allows us to stay completely unbiased and guarantees you assessments and recommendations that are in no way influenced by product-related interests.

We deliver straight talk

We are not afraid to challenge you in a constructive manner, and might question the way that you may perceive IT security today. In spite of the technical nature of our business, we speak a language that is familiar to the IT department as well as the boardroom – and deliver reports that are clear and easy to put to use.

We understand your business

We take pride in understanding your business and focus our consulting and tests on your business-critical systems. This helps you get an overview of your cyber security situation and the business impact of potential risks, making it easier to prioritise your security-related spending and time investments.

We have a strong track record

Penetration testing, security assessments and audits have been our specialties for over a decade, giving you assurance that our recommendations are based on accumulated practical experience, and not just theoretical assumptions. Our consultants are world renown experts in IT security. In 2016, FortConsult delivered over 1000 projects to clients across the world.

IT security is our passion

We live and breathe IT security, and take pride in continuously obtaining new knowledge and skills. This allows us to always stay a step ahead of the threats that are facing your business. Our consultants have a hunger for learning and expanding their skill sets, and have developed numerous tools that are used by IT security experts across the globe.

High quality is our highest priority

We are obsessed with delivering high quality to our clients – we always strive to excel and never settle for merely ‘getting the job done’. We continually evaluate and rethink our methods to ensure that we deliver the highest quality in the execution of our assignments for you.

Quality

We have a number of processes in place to ensure that we deliver unparalleled quality to our clients. If we believe that we are not sufficiently qualified, we are not afraid of turning down jobs. All of our projects are QA’d by a consultant that has not been involved in the delivery, setting a fresh set of eyes on the results.

We operate with some of the most thorough delivery methodologies available, while our consultants are supported by internal knowledge sharing with over 1000 consultants across NCC Group, internally developed tools and test labs, and threat intelligence feeds that ensure that we are always one step ahead of cyber criminals.

History

FortConsult was founded in 2002 by IT security pioneer Ulf Munkedal. Ulf has worked with IT security since 1992 and has previously co-founded Neupart & Munkedal (later VIGILANTe), which was one of the first security companies in the world to conduct penetration testing. In 2004, FortConsult became the first QSA, P2PE & PA assessor in Europe.

In 2008, we opened offices in Lithuania, followed up in the coming years by Russia, Portugal, Sweden and Greece. In 2012, we performed one of the first DDoS tests in Scandinavia and started providing courses in ATM security and security tests to some of the largest banks in the world.

Already firmly established as a heavyweight among Scandinavian IT security companies, FortConsult was acquired by NCC Group in May 2014.
