We do important work. Importantly.

Who is Penten?

“We are lucky enough to work with some of the most talented cyber security professionals in Australia and the world working on some of the hardest cyber problems facing the nation.”

Matthew Wilson, Penten CEO

Make Life Memories

At Penten, we believe work should feel like home. Your family is part of our family and you needn’t be disconnected from life when you start a new job. Bring your whole self to work if that suits you. Or work from home if this suits your family. Hug your dog, make new friends, share a laugh, celebrate. Make memories.
