“The most revolutionary security assessment platform available”

Pentaguard is an enterprise-level security software capability that utilises a unique multi-dimensional capability built into the engine to automatically calculate complex threat, hazard and risk ratings as you complete the assessment. Because the risk appetite and tolerance are tailorable by your organisation and built into the platform, the assessment outcomes will be accurate and consistent across multiple users.

Additionally, Pentaguard gives the user global visibility from their desk – down to the level of each individual threat, hazard and risk.

Cutting Edge Benefits

Pentaguard is based on a unique logic that takes into account multiple factors affecting your security assessments. It then automatically calculates the threat, hazard and risk ratings – along with a range of other ratings – as you enter data into the software.  Unlike other software, Pentaguard has significant benefits including multi-dimensional analysis, global visibility, accuracy, consistency, templates and better security decisions.

Why use a multi-dimensional threat assessment tool?

Threat assessments traditionally seek to gain some knowledge and understanding about the intent of the threat source to implement a threat, and their capability to undertake such a threat. After assessing any relevant intelligence about that threat source and the nature of the threat, the security practitioner then makes a judgement about:

  • The level of intent – let’s assume this is rated as Very High
  • The level of capability – again, let’s assume this is rated as Very High.

We call this a “2-dimensional” threat rating – intent x capability. However, when we assess the many factors influencing whether a threat is going to occur and the degree to which it may be successful, the threat assessment becomes a multi-dimensional assessment that requires an integrated solution to simplify the many moving parts.

Pentaguard automatically calculates accurate threat ratings from many complex inputs.


Pentaguard supports threat, hazard and risk assessments that can be applied to different scenarios.  For example, you can carry out these assessments against one or more sites located anywhere in the world.  The outcomes of the assessments can be automatically inserted into any of your secuirty templates that can be installed into Pentaguard.
A set of templates are used to define the different assessments.  Different templates allow different scenarios to be accommodated, such as physical site security vulnerabilities (ie. hotels and events), travel threats and risks, pandemic analysis, program planning and natural disasters.
You can create assessments for any type of site from a simple, single location to a complex area that consists of many sites and locations.  The assessments are broken down into groups, sites within each group and locations within each site.
Pentaguard supports many different categories of assets.  You are able to select the asset category and sub-category and its criticality. Importantly, you can define the implications if the asset is disrupted.  This allows anyone reviewing the assessment to have the full context around the asset.
Whenever you change any part of the assessment ratings, the new values are calculated immediately ready for your review.
Pentaguard uses a sophisticated combination of role-based and attribute-based access control and encryption to secure access right down to the data level. Security can be further improved when approved cloud hosting providers are used who are certified to Government protected security levels.
Pentaguard is able to support any number of users.  The platform is fully secure and users can be given multiple roles so you can control who can carry out assessments, reviews and approvals. Visibility into all parts of Pentaguard can be controlled.
When you create an assessment, you are able to attach any additional information in the form of files to the assessment.  You can simply drag and drop them into the assessment.  Pentaguard also provides you with a number of templates that can assist you in developing further risk mitigation strategies.
As users must log in before they can do anything on the platform, all changes in the platform are recorded against the user who makes the change.  An audit trail can then be recovered and reviewed to determine who did what and when.
Yes it is.  Pentaguard can be deployed on both public and private cloud services.
Yes it can.  Pentaguard uses standard technologies and can be installed on separate, on-premise servers or within private, on-site cloud architectures.
Yes they can.  Pentaguard uses a standard OIDC/OAuth service internally to authenticate users but this can be federated to use your own OAuth or LDAP authentication services.
Pentaguard uses standard web-based technologies that your existing support service providers should be familiar with.  If changes are required to align to your specific requirements, we are happy to discuss changes.
