Penetration Testing Services

Penetration and Vulnerability assessments are two different types of assessments of identifying real and potential holes in a network, application or communications infrastructure.

Why conduct Penetration/Vulnerability Testing? Properly conducted, attack simulated, Penetration/Vulnerability Testing will allow organisations to correctly identify weaknesses in their existing Security postures and frameworks.

The Cyber era is growing all the time, and with ever increasing need for Business and Government to maintain their web presence, security needs to be a cornerstone of all business operations.

Simulated testing will emulate the steps a real attacker with malicious intent, will perform to attempt to gain un-authorised access to your network. The results of these tests are then used to assist clients address the areas of vulnerability in a holistic manner. TLR will try to attack the client, where required and within bounds (there has to be bounds we know), as close to real world as we can make it. We will try different methods, different tools and code, try to apply that out of the box thinking to the testing where we can.

Governance Risk and Compliance

Risk and Compliance standards are continually evolving and being updated. Government entities are required to adhere to Government based standards, with business enduring an increasing need to adopt compliance frameworks to assist them to increase their overall security posture.

The challenge for business and Government can be which parts of the complex frameworks do they need to really address, and how? How do they complete this task without overwhelming business operations?

TLR is not an audit company, we do not provide audit services such as IRAP certification, we can however assist clients getting ready for such an audit, and even assist by introducing trusted and reputable auditors.

Managed Security Services

Security is an ever evolving concern in the current Cyber climate, and will not stop evolving anytime soon. Adhoc approach to Security is one step, oops, I need a Pen Test, better get that done, but if the results are not taken and applied, then what was the point?

Managing and integrating security solutions, security operations centres etc. is an expensive and time consuming task. Dedicated teams need to be established to properly ensure devices are performing optimally, events are captured and managed according to set rules and policies.

TLR Communications provide tailored managed security solutions from managed vulnerability scanning through to full managed Security Operations Centres and solutions. A simple approach of conducting a baselining process to identify and manage the open doors in the clients’ environment, and then providing an ongoing solution to monitor the environment takes a big step forward in securing networks.


TLR Communications are partners with leading Global Security systems providers, including FireEye, Palo Alto and Checkpoint Firewalls, FireMon firewall management systems, Splunk and NetIQ monitoring systems.

TLR can provide this technology to assist clients moving to next generation security solutions, we are vendor agnostic, and will always ensure that the right Security solution is configured/implemented for the client.

TLR’s main strengths lie our collective knowledge of various solutions, and the integration of such technology into the clients’ environment, and ensure that it is the correct configuration and implementation. We love working with this stuff, and that’s what we want to help with.


TLR Communications provides training services for the ADFA Cyber Undergraduate Programs, Masters Programs and adhoc short courses through the UNSW. TLR designs the courses they are responsible for and delivers them. These courses can be customised as necessary to suit individual client’s requirements.

TLR has developed and written Company On-boarding Courses that run online that allow Companies to provide these courses to staff and contractors to raise their “Cyber Security” awareness, immediately impacting the clients security posture. At the end of the day, Security of the domain starts with the users.
