About River Security

River Security was established and founded in 2020. We are all about upstream thinking, thinking ahead of the symptoms and fixing problems at their core. We aim to disrupt and challenge the given standards in the industry, when approaching the ever-changing environments on behalf of our clients. We take pride in finding the right solutions and giving the best advice to help solve the core of problems. We practice ethical and healthy business, working for mutual benefits and value for both provider and client. As a fairly new player in the industry, we challenge the norm on how consulting and it-security assessments should be conducted. Furthermore, we strive to raise the standards and change the perspective with our methodology. Both now and in the future, we will further differentiate by holding only senior level of expertise in our group of consultants. This is crucial when delivering these types of critical assessments. As an independent Provider, with no connections or contracts with technology providers, we differentiate even more from the competitor landscape, and this makes it even easier to act objectively and deliver advice with no influence. We consider this to be essential characteristics of River Security and we find this attribute to be a key performing factor that gives our Clients the best possible delivery.

In addition to deliver “traditional” penetration testing activities, we have our own self-developed technology, Active Focus. This is a pro-active consultancy service with the purpose of continuously observing the known tactics, techniques and procedures attackers and criminals are using online and against our organizations. Through observation and pro-active testing, we will increase security, reveal vulnerabilities, and prevent attacks by proactively identifying vulnerabilities. As the digital attack surface changes on a regular basis, new services are provisioned and existing services change. It is therefore important to be flexible and dynamic when monitoring systems.

River Security helps large private companies and public enterprises to take digital leadership and is concerned with creating value for customers and society. We want to contribute to a better and more sustainable future. We consist of 10 employees:

  • We are profitable and in growth.
  • We apply a fully remote workforce, our head-office is in Oslo.
  • We have by August 2022, 60+ customers spread across Europe.

Our vision is to make internet a safer place for our customers. We do this by providing proactive consulting services and by delivering our self-developed Attack Surface Management platform, Active Focus. In River Security, we work agile and directly with our end customers.
