  • How much does a penetration test cost?

    Most of the penetration tests we perform fall within the range of $6,000-$10,000 depending on scope. Reach out for your quote today!

  • How do you quote for a penetration test?

    We try to size up your scope! For web applications the biggest factor for sizing is the number of dynamic pages/API endpoints. For infrastructure testing, the biggest factor for sizing is the number of active hosts.

  • When can you start?

    This is a bit hard to answer on a static website! Generally we can start immediately upon approval of our proposal, give us a call to check.

  • How is a penetration test different from a scan?

    Penetration tests are more comprehensive than automated scans. Human testers also have the ability to chain together a series of vulnerabilities to achieve greater impact.

  • Should I do a black, grey, or white box test?

    It depends on your goals. White box testing will simulate an insider threat, you provide all information (e.g. source code) so time isn't wasted on enumeration. Black box is the most realistic but may result in less vulnerability findings for same money. Grey box testing balances realism and cost effectiveness.

  • Can you perform a test for my ISO 27001/PCI DSS audit?

    Yes. Our testing protocols surpass the guidelines recommended by the PCI Standards Council and ISO/IEC.

  • Can penetration testing guarantee network security?

    Penetration testing forms an important part of a comprehensive security strategy but does not guarantee security, arguably nothing can guarantee 100% security.

  • What is the expected outcome of a penetration test?

    We uncover your unknown unknowns! This is typically in the form of a detailed report that contains discovered vulnerabilities, their potential risks, and remediation recommendations.
