Frequently Asked Questions

Does your penetration test help me earn compliance?

Yes! Our comprehensive penetration tests can help you meet compliance frameworks such as SOC 2, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and more. We test against 5 major industry frameworks such as OWASP Top10, ASVS, NIST, WSTG,  and Sans Top 25 to ensure that you have a thorough test. 

Which penetration test is best for a small business? 

Smaller businesses might have smaller budgets or less application endpoints to test on, meaning that a one-time annual penetration test is usually sufficient. Learn more about Pentest 360 here.

How much time do my developers need to spend on supporting the pentest?

In total, you developers can expect to spend around 7+ hours supportin the penetration test. Before the pentest, we'll ask for you to complete a pre-assessment checklist, which will take 1-2 hours to complete. We'll also require a 1-hour kick-off call on the first day of testing to demo your application. During the test, you won't hear from us unless we find a critical vulnerability. Following the test, we'll do a 1-hour close-out call to review the report and answer any questions. Additional hours may be required to patch vulnerabilities as needed.

What qualifications do your penetration testers have?

All of our penetration testers work in-house, in full-time roles. They are all experienced ethical hackers and hold a variety of qualifications such as AWS Security certifications, and Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) designations. On top of that, they've also worked in enterprise companies like IBM and Wells Fargo, proving their ability to handle any size of application. And they even contribute regularly to our blogs if you want to check some of their latest thought leadership!

What type of company do you specialize in working with?

We're well set-up to work with any size of company, but we fit especially well with mid-size companies that are scaling quickly. Our team is fast, provides detailed reports, and we can re-test patched vulnerabilities to prove your risk mitigation strategies are successful. We connect to your team via Slack and an online Portal to help fit penetration testing into an agile, fast-moving SDLC.
