“As long as I require penetration testing, I will be a client of Netragard”
“One of the reasons I decided to go with Netragard for my penetration testing needs is because it was the only vendor I could find that performed manual testing in the same vein as actual hackers out on the internet as opposed to automated scanning tools. Most vendors I found offered automated services only while my pen testing requirements demanded manual testing. So by simple disqualification, Netragard got my business! However, the main reason to select Netragard turned out to be their quality customer service and their track record in the industry. As long as I require penetration testing, I will be a client of Netragard. “ – Matt Rosier
What Our Clients Are Saying…
Two years ago we did an external penetration study only. Last year, we did an internal and external as well. We are going to be making significant internal changes over this fiscal year, so there is no real benefit in doing the internal again this year. We will finish all of our initiatives and then next fiscal year do an internal as well as an external.
We use Netragard to act as our White Hats. They are very good and cost effective. Before you select a vendor, do yourself a favor and talk with them. They did what they said they would do, when they said they would do it and at an agreed price. All work was performed remotely and all deliverables were electronic, including an executive summary and detailed analysis for my Engineering staff. They even went so far as to help us determine best practices, so as to mitigate our exposure. I couldn’t be happier with them.
I did send out an RFP and yes, I got pricing from $500.00 up to $12,000.00. Without question, we made the right decision in going with these folks.
For an external penetration scan, we paid about $5K. We have a very small external footprint, so $5K was reasonable.
Depending on what your budget will tolerate, they are pretty good about working with you. I personally recommend them and no, I am not getting a kick back. Perhaps I should consider it though :-)

We received proposals from a half-dozen potential Vendors and Netrgard’s proposal was by far the most comprehensive.
They also seemed ahead of their competitors in essentially all technical security matters. We, therefore, selected them to perform a Blind External Penetration Test along with both remote and on-site social engineering. A thorough review of our physical security was also included.
We were very pleased with the results of their review. In tandem with our own IT Security Group, they we able to clearly identify where our IT security was strong and where it needed to be improved.
They provided us with practical recommendations to improve not only our technical IT security, but also advised us of needed enhancements to our physical security, while also advising us on how to limit our susceptibility to social engineering tactics. We were very impressed with the Netragard Team and would consider them for future engagements.
We’ve gotten everyone downgraded to “users” in the last year, except the developers whom insist on being local admins.
Nicely done! I have about 100 replies from people who would love to run the executable but can’t. That’s in addition to voicemails.
And we can see that AppLocker blocked a lot of people from running the linked executable. So there’s no shortage of click happy users.
We can’t wait to see the report. I’ve been incredibly frustrated with past years penetration tests as we receive empty reports.
I suspect we’ll have plenty this time around to begin working on :)
A single successful penetration by a malicious hacker can result in the compromise of an organization’s Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (“CIA”).
