Surelock – Physical Penetration Tests

It is all very well spending a small fortune on CCTV, Alarms and Access Control systems, but do you actually test these systems to see if they are really working.

We at Surelock carry out numerous security surveys of home or business premises. The site perimeter, integrity of buildings and vulnerability of individual rooms are examined in detail together with existing physical/electronic measures and procedures already in place to reduce crime. 

Apart from the obvious benefit of minimising losses, this will also provide increased peace of mind to staff or residents and from the business perspective is likely to lead to happier work environment, increased efficiency, improved image with customers and sometimes lower insurance premiums.

But following the survey how often do you get your security measures tested, don’t wait for the inevitable to happen!

Physical penetration tests are an important way for businesses to identify any weaknesses in the physical security of their premises (e.g., warehouses and offices) that could be exploited by criminals. 

We have specialist operatives drawn from the military well versed in ‘Red Teaming’, which focuses on sending a team to gain entry to restricted areas. This is done to test and optimise physical security such as access control, fences, cameras, alarms, locks, and employee behaviour. Physical red teaming will often involve a reconnaissance phase where information is gathered and weaknesses in security are identified, and then that information will be used to conduct an operation to gain physical entry to the premises, tailgating or the use of unofficial security badges.

During the operation, our experts will covertly try to bypass any security guards, cameras, locks, fences, or other security measures to gain entry and demonstrate how they could potentially reach restricted areas undetected. The whole operation will be covertly recorded for training purposes and a detailed report of our findings will be provided.
