  • We've worked with Software Secured for over 4 years. They did a great job each year for penetration testing, and moving to their model where the offer 'penetration testing as a service' for more frequent testing made sense as our business quickly scaled.

    READ THE CASE STUDY
  • We really found that their focus on manual testing allowed their team to use their intuition. This was a huge selling point and led to a more effective penetration test.

  • Very pleased with the findings report that uncovered "dark-corners" that other PEN testing firms just couldn't (or wouldn't or didn't) find. Pleasant to work with. Not the cheapest but felt a bit "saved" by them as they helped prevent security issues being released to the customer that other cheaper firms didn't notice. Turn around time for meetings, calls, emails was very good. They deserve their reputation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pentesting

When does my business need PTaaS?
PTaaS can be used to test both internal and external databases, applications, and systems. It provides multiple deep penetration tests per year that can be aligned with your major application releases. Between these deep assessments, which are recommended quarterly, the service also offers security consulting, issue remediation advice, and access to our Portal for online reporting. This process aims to shorten the feedback loop between developers and security by integrating security at the speed of DevOps processes. Adopting this integrated security practice can improve app performance and business valuation, which is important for SaaS startups that may undergo a merger or acquisition within the next few years. PTaaS can also be used to support companies earning compliance requirements.

What types of attacks can penetration testing help us guard against?
Penetration testing can help you guard against a variety of attacks, including those listed in the OWASP Top 10, a widely used classification of cybersecurity risks. This list updates every few years, and the following are the top risks as of 2021. The OWASP Top 10 includes injection, broken authentication and session management, cross-site scripting, insecure direct object references, security misconfiguration, broken access control, cross-site request forgery, using components with known vulnerabilities, terrible server configuration, and security logging and monitoring failures. Penetration testers can also leverage their intuition, experience, and creativity to find new vulnerabilities in deeper layers of the application.
What are the common methods of penetration testing?
Manual and automated penetration testing are the two methods of testing. Software Secured uses manual testing to find and exploit vulnerabilities not commonly found by an automated scan using their own skills and knowledge. In comparison, automated testing uses special software to scan for weaknesses. While automated testing can be done faster and often cheaper, manual penetration testing provides more depth, creativity, and comprehensive results (with zero false positives).
How do I choose a PTaaS provider?
Organizations should carefully choose a PTaaS provider with experience in their industry and type of business. They should also be able to customize the penetration test to meet the organization's specific needs. A credible PTaaS provider will be able to present a detailed report with steps to recreate and remediate a vulnerability. They may also contribute consulting or other resources to support the patching of issues. Security theater is a big risk when working with non-reputable security testers. Therefore, by choosing a PTaaS provider that will supply proof of their findings, you will ensure that your test is accurate and includes zero false positives. Learn more here.
