The headlines are scary.
Data breaches cost more than ever, and they are happening more frequently.
It's not for lack of spending. U.S. companies spent $60 billion on cybersecurity in 2017, and are on track to spend $66 billion in 2018. We are buying firewalls, intrusion detection systems, static analysis, antivirus, even next-gen antivirus (oh my!).
Why does it feel like defensive spending is never enough?
Look through the eyes of a hacker.
Penetration testers use the tools and techniques of a hacker to provide you a unique view of your organization.
Modern cybersecurity products are highly automated and provide broad protection against a wide range of threats, but they are far from perfect. While defenders worry about securing a massive number of devices and services, your adversaries have laser-like focus on the handful of most vulnerable devices.
Like a real adversary, our pen testers draw upon a deep understanding of security and follow their instincts to probe the most serious weaknesses in your infrastructure. By emulating adversarial tactics, we demonstrate how minor security issues can be combined to lead to a full-blown compromise.
Not only is our team generally better pen testers, we're the ones creating the tools that we and thousands of other pen testers use. These include our popular scylla.sh and former tool PunkSPIDER and small scripts that we use every day as hackers. We are also no strangers to finding 0-days (previously undiscovered) in a variety of products. It is not rare that our engagement team finds little to go off of in terms of miscongirations or known vulnerable targets. In this case we turn to our 0-day hunting expertise to find new vulnerabilities, even ones in hardened, sophisticated software. In short, we go the extra mile and a half.
Our customers run amazing businesses,
and we are proud to help them stay safe and secure!
We choose Hyperion Gray because they don't just run the same commonly available scanning or static code analysis tools that we use. They are extremely talented and technically capable hackers. There is no other company that provides the same level of custom support and high competence.
Alex and his team are solid, professional and exceptionally talented people. We can always depend on Hyperion Gray to help keep us secure.
Thanks to their unique expertise, and well-understood rules of engagement, Alex and Mark were able to effectively assess our resiliency and security posture, and clearly translate potential security vulnerabilities into actionable solutions.
Meet the team.
We have assessed a wide range of businesses, from tech startup to multinational law firm.
Our senior penetration tester, Alejandro (Alex) Caceres, has years of experience conducting pen tests for government agencies and the private sector alike. Alex is an active security researcher and trainer:
- Speaker at major conferences like DEFCON and Shmoocon.
- Featured in Forbes magazine.
- Creator of open source security tools.
- Author of security articles on the Gray Area blog
- Creator and instructor of online security training.
Our team possesses the most desired certifications in the industry, including the CEH, CISSP, and OSCP. We are based in the U.S. and Canada, with availablity for remote work and travel.
Most penetration test teams focus 100% on offensive security and have little experience on defense. As a result, they often give you expensive and impractical advice!
Our team is unique. We are not just ethical hackers. We also write code and manage our own infrastructure every day. So we understand the difficulty of balancing business needs with security concerns. You can rest assured that we will never recommend security measures that we would not adopt ourselves.
