Our customers have included major organisations in the following industries: government, healthcare, ICT, education, and utilities. Many of these engagements have been on varied and complex application systems, ranging from vendor acquired systems like SAP and Oracle through to bespoke in-house developed applications.

JDS consultants are highly skilled at recognising and responding to security risks, but they are also application testing professionals with a strong testing discipline. These skills, combined with our extensive in-house experience testing for the largest corporate banks, financial services, and insurance corporations, make JDS the partner of choice for Penetration Testing and Security Assessments.
