HackDefense Home

HackDefense understands how hackers work. And gives you insight into your exposure.


We love to understand modern digital technology down to the smallest details. We genuinely enjoy deciphering the code behind cyber attacks.


HackDefense provides insight into complex technical subjects for those responsible for IT Security, whether they have an IT background or not. We understand how it works, and we exist to communicate our knowledge to you in a way that helps you understand how to act.

Our team.

We’re a small team of Ethical Hackers and penetration testers, with experience since 1999 and knowledge of the latest hacking techniques.

That’s how we can recommend strategic and tactical initiatives to counter hacking attacks, as well as do technical deep-dives with your system administrators and developers.

Our highly-educated and certified Ethical Hackers find security weaknesses. And tell you, clearly and concisely, what that means for you and your organisation.
