2007 in the city of London: Ian Whiting loves Pizza and the buzz of hacking into global clients. A CHECK accredited (GCHQ ninja “team leader” skills) penetration tester, Ian is in high demand, it’s a great life!
The Bank Job: They were worried about hackers exploiting routes through their network to get to valuable data. (Ian had previously hacked a client wage system, via Wi-Fi in their parking lot, so it wasn’t unreasonable).
Checking over thirty firewall and switch configurations, involved thousands of lines of data – days of analysis and report writing…
Ian decided that there must be a way to automate these processes to enable him to focus his skills on the more interesting stuff (like Pizza).
Nipper: The idea for the first detailed configuration vulnerability auditing tool was born.
A tool that would find weaknesses that hackers could exploit and show you how to close them.
2009 in the city of Worcester: Titania was founded with the ethos of making security simple, something we still believe.
