Penetration Testing Firm Selection Guide

What our customers are saying
  • 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 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.

    Financial Institution
  • 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.

  • 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.

    Large Cloud Service Provider
  • 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.
