Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS)

We help development teams at SaaS startups to securely scale code deployment through penetration testing.

Talk To Us

Your Challenge

SaaS startups are faced with increasing compliance requirements, more vendor security questionnaires and high levels of consumer demand for data privacy. With small development teams, start-up-sized budgets, and tight schedules to release new features constantly, how are you planning to fit in application security?

Our Solution

Penetration testing as a service (PTaaS) integrates directly into your existing SDLC, and is uniquely designed for fast-growing start-ups. Our Ottawa-based testing service runs a manual, comprehensive assessment each quarter and runs anytime re-testing on new features and patch validation. PTaaS also includes security consulting to help your small development team get the security experience you need to scale securely.

What’s Included

Advanced Threat Modeling

Using your unique business logic to create real, advanced attack scenarios. Testing the security of your application's design.

Continuous Reporting

Our reports explain discovered issues in detail, combined with steps and screenshots to reproduce. No time is wasted on triaging.

Unlimited Retesting

Run unlimited smaller tests between quarterly deep assessments to validate the security of your bug fixes, new app updates or new app features.

Infrastructure Testing

Applying similar practices to your IT infrastructure can identify network vulnerabilities in your business.

Team Rotation

You always have a real person who will walk you through the pentesting process. We regularly switch out your pentesters to provide fresh perspectives and creative new approaches.

Penetration Testing Certificate

Prove to your clients that your application is secure. Many of our clients use their PenTesting Certificate to close bigger deals, move faster through funding rounds and pass compliance checks easily.

How It Works


We want to learn about your application(s) and get a strong understanding of the project size and scope so we can determine the best approach.

Baseline Assessment

We will perform an initial assessment where we look for publicly exposed information. We’ll follow a process modeled after your threat modeling scenarios to give visibility into unknown vulnerabilities that could expose your application to cyber attacks or compliance issues.


We perform issue verification where our team will ensure proper remediation for fixed issues – no need to wait until the next comprehensive test. We can also complete full retests where our team will carry out regression tests on your application(s) with a special focus on any changes made since the previous test.

Quarterly Assessments

Every quarter, we will perform a deep, fully inclusive retest for your application(s). The quarterly test follows the same process as the initial assessment with more attention on the updates and improvements in the past quarter.

Updated Certification

At any point, we can provide you with an updated certification as proof of your application security.

How much does PTaaS cost?

One-time penetration testing and PTaaS offerings vary depending on the size and complexity of your applications. Pricing is based on the number of endpoints to determine testing time. Get in touch to see pricing for your application(s)!
