The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

rTraction is a digital services agency that works with both corporations and non-profit organizations to deliver innovative technology solutions that focus on storytelling and improving brand. I am the VP of Production, overseeing design, development and marketing deliverables.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CyberHunter Solutions Inc.?

We required a 3rd party penetration test of our web application for a client.

What were your goals for this project?

The goals for the project were to assess the cyber security of our Drupal-based web application by having a penetration test performed so that we could ensure that there were no security gaps and then to provide evidence of this to our clients.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Some of our technical team members were assigned the task of finding a cybersecurity company that would be a good fit for this penetration testing effort. We had several questions as well as a budget to adhere to. This was a new challenge for us as we had not had the need for such a service before.

The team compared, compiled and presented their findings to our executive team and CyberHunter was the winning choice on all fronts.

Describe the project in detail.

The project involved some pre-testing discussions about the architecture and application, the overall objectives of the test as well as the desired outcome.

CyberHunter used industry-recognized methodologies that were based on the OWASP Top 10 Most Critical Web Application Security Risks, OWASP Testing Guide v4, CWE/SANS TOP 25 Most Dangerous Software Errors and The Penetration Testing Execution Standard as this was a test against a Drupal 8.0 web site hosted on Pantheon infrastructure.

Once the testing was completed by CyberHunter, our team received a comprehensive report describing the identified issues and how to fix them. We corrected the issues, and CyberHunter performed a re-test to ensure they were properly executed. A final report was issued at that point that we were able to deliver to our customers.

What was the team composition?

The team was made up of the CyberHunter tester (Matej), the project manager (Chris) and then from the rTraction side it was myself (Josh Dow, VP Production) and my team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

CyberHunter was able to verify that we had a solid security posture on the web application. They identified certain areas that we needed to fix, and once remediated, they performed a re-test to verify the issues were fixed. They provided a comprehensive report that was easy to understand, had clear remediation advice, and gave our customers the comfort level they were looking for.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Very effective. No matter what form of communication we had, CyberHunter always responded promptly and efficiently. They were very respectful to our business needs and worked with us as to when testing could be performed.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The skill and professionalism in which they executed the tasks required. They identified issues that were completely unknown to us. The CyberHunter team members are clearly experts in their field, and their results and performance consistently identified that.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Regarding our experience and after collaborating with our team, I can’t honestly say that we can think of any areas that CyberHunter could have improved on.

CyberHunter Solutions Inc. identified security issues and offered solutions. Project management and workflow were very effective. The communication and responsiveness were impressive throughout the project. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Powernoodle provides a SaaS-based platform to help organizations make better decisions. I am a Director and one of my hats is GRCS.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CyberHunter Solutions Inc.?

Third-party penetration testing.

What were your goals for this project?

To identify (and subsequently resolve) any security issues; thereby giving our clients confidence that their data within our cloud-based application is secure.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Our organization made a commitment to complete regular penetration testing and when that time came around this year, we decided to look at alternatives in the market. As is the norm today, I spent some time online looking at the various options from providers around the world; many of which are located in the US and India. After reading some reviews and visiting a number of other vendor sites, I came across CyberHunter Solutions. Their website was one of the best I encountered; clearly articulating the types of needs in the market and their corresponding solutions. I subsequently reached out to them and had an initial discussion to assess fit from a needs, timing, and cost perspective. As an early stage SaaS company, we have many of the same security needs as a large organization but without the budget of a large organization. CyberHunter got this. I brought out Director of Infrastructure into the conversation and he was similarly impressed. When I laid out the options on the table, our CEO agreed with the recommendation to engage CyberHunter Solutions and the experience has been nothing short of excellent.

Describe the project in detail.

Grey-box penetration testing to verify the security of the platform from both a general and licensed user perspective. A report was provided that detailed description of all discovered attack vectors along with their evidence, severity (based on complexity, probability, user interaction, …) and possible remediation steps. Methodology was based on OWASP Top 10 Most Critical Web Application Security Risks, OWASP Testing Guide v4, CWE/SANS TOP 25 Most Dangerous Software Errors and The Penetration Testing Execution Standard.

What was the team composition?

From the CyberHunter Solutions side, it was Chris and Alex. On our side, our Infrastructure, Development, and GRCS teams were all involved.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

While no serious security issues were found, CH identified some lower-severity areas where we could do even better and those insights were used to do just that. After mitigating the issues identified, targeted re-testing was completed to confirm all issues had been addressed.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Extremely effective. Via a combination of phone calls and email-based interactions, the communication and workflow among the inter-company team were exceptional.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their responsiveness and communications. From the initial inquiry through the preliminary then final reports, CyberHunter solutions is clearly an expert in their field. They are also incredibly in tune with the limited resources of an early-stage company; being beyond accommodating as we worked through implementing enhancements over a number of development sprints.

Are there any areas for improvement?

For the purpose of this engagement, I can’t think of how it could have gone better.
