Edge Testing brings security offering to Midlands customers

Last updated on: December 7, 2018, Author: Editorial Team

Birmingham-based software testing company, Edge Testing Solutions, is offering its clients across the Midlands access to a new Security Division – Eurofins Cyber Security – that has been introduced to assist in the development of effective security strategies through risk and vulnerability assessments, complementing Edge’s existing testing provision.

The new division boasts approximately 100 security experts worldwide, providing clients across the region, and UK-wide, with a range of services including risk and vulnerability assessments, testing and compliance, advisory and training services.

The Eurofins Cyber Security service complements Edge Testing’s existing testing provision, and clients will be encouraged to establish a baseline security position through a thorough risk assessment.

Edge Testing, which is based at Quayside Wharf in Birmingham, will identify vulnerabilities and threats to help its clients determine the likelihood of any exploits before they arise and cause negative impact on the business.

Sharon Hamilton, Managing Director, Edge Testing, commented: “Every business, big and small, faces numerous security threats across a number of weakpoints, including internal enterprise software applications and billing systems to mobile devices. We already work with clients on ensuring software and systems work as expected, so our new enhanced security provision via Eurofins Cyber Security is a natural extension to our existing testing services.”

The Security Division offers:

  • Security as a Service: Providing the key roles to provide a comprehensive security based managed service including Security Officer, Privacy Officer and Security Manager. The service is underpinned by a Security Monitor and Incident Response capability.
  • Security assessments: Providing companies with a baseline and identify vulnerabilities, threats, and likelihood of exploits and business impacts, to enable them to manage remediation efforts in a way that aligns with their business priorities.
  • Testing services: Reducing vulnerabilities or risks that could negatively affect customers through ethical hacking, automated testing tools, auditing and reporting programs.
  • Compliance services: Enabling companies to prepare for, and meet, contractual and regulatory compliance obligations.
  • Advisory services: Enabling organisations to develop an effective and relevant security program to minimise risks, manage compliance and align security with business goals and objectives.
  • Security awareness & training services: Supporting organisations in raising security awareness. Train employees to proactively recognise threats and protect data, transforming them from a being the greatest security risk to the greatest security asset.


Edge Testing software testing and security services can be implemented from both onsite and remotely from Edge Testing’s Birmingham Digital Test Hub, which was opening last year.
