”Software Secured provided one of the best penetration test reports I had ever seen. A detailed report for internal use and resolution, and a summary certification to be stored for evidence and sharing externally. They provide the quality of some of the biggest names in security, without the price tag and complications. If you need some things done, have a pretty good idea of what needs to get done, and don't want to be sold a bunch of extras that aren't required for the project, this is who you go with.”
