NotSoSecure and Claranet

Combining expertise across a broad range of cyber security disciplines.

NotSoSecure are one of the largest training partners of the globally acclaimed Black Hat conferences, and one of the world’s most respected penetration testing firms in the areas of web and mobile applications and network security. With a presence in the UK, USA, India, and Australia, NotSoSecure's customers include FTSE250 and Fortune 500 companies, leading financial institutions in London and New York and some of the largest retail businesses in the USA and UK.

In July 2018 Claranet acquired NotSoSecure, for their ethical hacking training and penetration testing expertise. Following the acquisition of Sec-1 in 2017 and the opening of a new Security Operations Centre in Portugal and the UK, we created the global Claranet Cyber Security unit. This demonstrates the significant investment and commitment Claranet is putting into the development of a world-leading security services capability.

We hack. We teach.

NotSoSecure has a prominent worldwide reputation, encapsulated by the leading training role it plays at the globally acclaimed Black Hat conferences, plus training partnerships with Checkpoint worldwide and QA in the UK. Specialising in penetration testing for networks, web and mobile applications, we are at the forefront of cybersecurity training, R&D and innovation.

World class training

The risk of cyber-attacks for organisations around the world has grown exponentially. However, this has not been matched by an increase in training and knowledge and, as a result, there is now a severe global skills shortage in cybersecurity. NotSoSecure offer research lab-based training, written by Black Hat Trainers that is available globally. All courses offer practical advice and experience with tools that enable attendees to become information security experts.

Global presence

Under the new Claranet Cyber Security umbrella, customers will be able to call upon the input of experts across a broad range of cybersecurity disciplines.

We work with a range of internationally-renowned businesses and organisations, Fortune 500 companies and FTSE 250 players. Claranet is focused on growing its US business further and strengthen its presence in this market, as well as expanding its footprint in Asia.

We are trusted for our research in to the very latest security threats and this knowledge continually informs all our cybersecurity work. What we learn from penetration testing in this field, feeds in to our training and visa versa. It's mutually beneficial.
