Cyber threats can affect your business at any time – and they need an immediate response. 

Ready to respond

Our team of IR specialists have extensive experience in dealing with cyber incidents – from single user email account compromises through to large scale ransomware attacks. Our IR team sits alongside our managed security team , so we are exposed to threats and incidents on a daily basis. This provides us with ongoing exposure to the latest security threats and trends.

We have partnered with the world’s leading providers of technical tooling, allowing our team to rapidly identify, contain and remediate threats to your business.

Advantage acts as the New Zealand wide representative for a number of global security companies and legal providers. We have a team spread throughout New Zealand so we can respond to incidents quickly on-site. However we specialise in providing remote IR support to improve the time-to-remediate your issue.  

Our services are most effective when we are engaged during the “good times” and we can get a good baseline to work from. However,  we are available on demand for new clients in their time of need.

Forensic analysis


Advantage provides digital forensic services to the New Zealand and Pacific Islands. 

Our team has developed robust and forensically sound procedures for the acquisition, analysis and reporting of relevant artifacts to assist you with investigations. We use world class tooling and techniques that allow us to image and perform analysis on servers, workstations, desktops, laptops, cloud services and mobile devices (including modern iPhone and Samsung devices).

We can perform the bulk of our services at your site, but we also have a secure forensic environment in our Palmerston North Security Operations Centre. The environment is used to analyse large data collections using hardware write blockers and our private cloud platform.

Advantage’s forensic team is routinely engaged to perform forensic analysis, e-discovery, and impact assessments of cyber incidents, employee misbehaviour, and privacy breaches.

Our processes and reports are suitable for use within the New Zealand legal (criminal and employment) framework and our experts are well versed at providing expert witness services.

Common incidents that we assist with include:

  • Ransomware attacks
  • Malware and virus infections
  • Business email compromise (BEC)
  • Employee/insider data theft
  • Employee misbehaviour
  • External network attacks and breaches
  • Internal intellectual property theft
  • Security vulnerabilities in software/networks
  • E-discovery and privacy assessments
