With a host of critically sensitive and regulated data used by both their internal teams and clients, SAI Global needs to uphold the highest levels of information security. That’s why they’ve turned to us at Content Security to assist them with a variety of services throughout the years, largely with a focus on penetration testing.

SAI Global and Content Security: A valued partnership
Content Security has had the pleasure of working with SAI Global for over 10 years now. We have followed their ascent as market-leaders and have been continually impressed by their innovation and dedication.
We’ve been fortunate enough to work closely with their CISO Peter Macarthur-King on a number of projects, and our long-standing relationship emphasises the importance of collaboration between industry veterans. We believe this partnership truly verifies the Content Security position as a leading and trusted cyber security point-of-contact.
Over the years we have delivered a variety of services and products for SAI Global, with engagements spanning across the entire Content Security suite of offerings. As their experienced cyber security consultant, we have assisted them in vulnerability management, SIEM implementation, endpoint security, penetration testing, ISO 27001 compliance and more.
Our relationship today: SAI Global’s need for penetration testing
SAI Global CISO Peter Macarthur-King notes:
“Content Security have been SAI Global’s trusted cyber security advisor for many years. They’ve assisted us with a variety of our IT security needs, but the core focus has really been around their penetration testing services. We’ve always used Content’s in-depth pentesting to evaluate and improve the security of our applications.”
SAI Global’s commitment to cyber security
As a large global organisation SAI Global have acquired various businesses along the way. Their most recent acquisition was BWise from Nasdaq in 2019. As the company continues to grow, so too does their portfolio of applications and systems.
These systems store critically sensitive and regulated data used by both their internal teams and clients. Therefore, the highest levels of information security must be in place to protect this environment. This involves proactively identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities that could compromise the availability, confidentiality or integrity of their data.
Content Security’s regular penetration testing services are just one of the ways SAI Global weathers today’s world of uncertainty and ensures their critical assets remain secure. During each engagement, we’ve helped them proactively manage cyber security risks and make improvements to safeguard the security of their organisation.
In frequently engaging us to conduct penetration testing, SAI Global validates their standing as leading providers of risk management. These tests show that SAI Global are actively addressing the convergence of information security and risk management within their enterprise and moreover, their substantial cybersecurity investments across global operations.
Thank you to SAI Global
“We have had a fantastic partnership with SAI Global over the years. I’d like to note that while we’ve been their trusted cyber security consultant for over a decade, the relationship has been truly mutual, as SAI Global has played a major role in our business growth.
We consistently draw on their vast certifications database when assisting clients. In fact, we achieved our own ISO 27001 certification with their help and this was a major milestone for all of us at Content Security.
I’d like to extend a warm thank you to SAI Global for this invaluable partnership. We are so excited to see a long-standing partner thrive in the international marketplace and sincerely look forward to more joint successes in the future.”
Content Security’s refined penetration testing approach
As information security specialists with over 20 years of experience, we are very passionate about our ethical hacking services. We have honed our skills in both penetration testing and red teaming engagements, with over 800 clients Australia-wide, across government, health, finance, education, non-profit, retail and utilities.
Our team of testers is comprised of both offensive and defensive professionals who have cultivated a collaborative approach to penetration testing and conduct hundreds of penetration tests yearly.
Over the years, we’ve developed a dynamic approach involving the use of both automated and manual techniques. However, what sets us apart from other cyber security partners is our penetration testers’ high-levels of focus.
With laser-like precision, we are able to identify a range of vulnerabilities in our clients’ environments and exploit these in order to see what additional access or information can be gained. We then produce a prioritised report detailing our unique approach to the engagement, the vulnerabilities identified and actionable recommendations for improvement.
