Pentesec Achieves 4-Star Elite Status From Check Point


Pentesec has achieved 4-Star Elite status from software provider Check Point, acknowledging the company’s commitment to Check Point, its cyber security excellence, its passion for emerging technologies and its first-class customer service.

A cyber security specialist, Pentesec offers professional and managed security services, using an extensive range of technologies. As a trusted and proven Check Point partner, Pentesec offers a high level of expertise, knowledge and quality, and has quickly moved up the ranks of Check Point’s Stars system.

Check Point’s Stars programme is focused on knowledge, education and collaboration, and divides its partners into tiers. The 4-Star Elite status is by invitation only, and to achieve this prestigious accreditation, Pentesec had to demonstrate that significant growth had resulted from Check Point’s emerging technology and new customers. The company joins only four other 4-Star Elite partners in the UK, and 16 globally.

Ian Turnbull, managing director at Pentesec, says: “We have been a Check Point partner since we were established in 2014, and we see it as an essential element of our business. Check Point is the cornerstone of the technologies we offer, and all our technical staff are qualified to at least Check Point Certified Security Expert standard. We have Check Point Security Masters too – the highest qualification available.

“We are incredibly proud that we have achieved 4-Star Elite status from the largest cyber security vendor, especially within such a short space of time, and it’s something we’ve been striving for since achieving our 4-Star status. It is important because it recognises that our business is exceeding expectations, and it will help us to realise our growth ambitions.”

Pentesec was founded in 2014 by five enthusiasts of pioneering technology with extensive knowledge and experience across security and infrastructure. The team continually monitors new and emerging technology to identify potential threats before they can take effect. Pentesec can manage all aspects of a security strategy, from an initial health check through to security and support.
