• Your shield in Cyber Security

Your Trusted Cyber Security Partner for Over 15 Years

Delivering Advanced, Full Spectrum Cyber Security Solutions

Ionize is one of Australia’s leading cyber security consultancy and managed services providers.  Founded in 2008 by our CEO and Managing Director, Andrew Muller, and securely head quartered in Canberra, we are proudly sovereign.

We have built a strong reputation over 15 years with a diverse range of private and public enterprises by carefully but pragmatically improving their cyber resilience, utilising our proven methodology across the full spectrum of cyber security services.

We specialise in:

  • Governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) strategic consulting and advisory
  • Penetration testing and other best practice offensive security approaches
  • 24/7 eyes on glass cyber threat monitoring, detection, and response
  • A PROTECTED and advanced security operations centre (SOC).

To enhance our own capabilities and further expand our services to clients, in 2020 we commissioned the Ionize Hunting Analysis and Warning Centre, or HAWC.  HAWC is a managed security service, designed to increase cyber security situational awareness.  HAWC enables our clients to obtain the benefits of 24/7 threat monitoring and incident response from Ionize, without the need to invest their own time, resources, and capital.  HAWC operates from our secure data centre in Canberra, providing both classified and unclassified cyber security operations and services.

When you partner with Ionize and take full advantage of our Hunting, Analysis and Warning Centre (HAWC), we have a dedicated team of professionals who work around the clock monitoring your systems and digital footprint against a cyber-attack. This highly rigorous process ensures any unauthorised attempt to access your systems, websites and other online digital assets is detected immediately. Hunting is a critical step in identifying any breach attempts by hackers or malicious actors, and is critical for early detection, prevention and escalation.


  • Threat Profiling
  • Web Activity Analyses
  • Vulnerability Scanning
  • Behavioural Analysis
  • IoC Search
  • Threat Intelligence Integration


Hunting leads to analysis, at which point we undertake a comprehensive examination of information and data to evaluate risks, identify vulnerabilities, and make a full assessment of the potential or actual impact on your digital assets. The analysis phase is often benign, however, our expert team can make that assessment based on the information and evidence available to determine the appropriate course of action.


  • Threat Profiling
  • Web Activity Analyses
  • Vulnerability Scanning
  • Behavioural Analysis
  • IoC Search
  • Threat Intelligence Integration


Once a cyber-attack, whether that be potential or actual has occurred and an analysis has been undertaken, our expert team can take swift and precise action to alert you of the threat. This immediate response and coordinated effort through your prescribed escalation pathway can greatly enhance your cyber security awareness and response.
