BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Chief experience officer at UXPressia, an online platform for building customer journey maps, personas and impact maps. I’m responsible for overall experience of the tool, working hard to make thousands of UX/CX designers, marketers, product owners and others happy and efficient.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Dhound?

Our enterprise clients claims partnership only with reliable and secure solutions, so that we needed to conduct penetration testing by an independent vendor in order to confirm the security of our product and make it a competitive advantage.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to get complete information about the vulnerabilities existing in the system, the risks associated with them, and methods for eliminating the vulnerabilities found.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

It was important for us that a penetration testing was conducted by a certified expert with extensive experience and focus on a manual approach.

Describe the project in detail.

The process began with scoping meetings, they sought to understand in detail the system, its features, risks and our concerns. Then pre-testing establishment - transfer and verification of necessary accesses and documentation, so that neither side is distracted by this during testing. Then test itself, they informed us of the critical findings immediately so that we could fix those asap.

At the end of the work, the experts provided a very detailed but easy to understand report with all findings, risk ratings, steps to reproduce and remediation advice. They also accompanied us after reporting to recheck our fixes.

What was the team composition?

We communicated with the project manager on organizational matters and directly with the expert who conducted the pen test.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The team found critical vulnerabilities in the system, and their fixes not only helped to significantly increase the level of security of the system, but also turned security into our competitive advantage and allowed us to work with enterprise customers.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They were always in touch by mail or on Skype, several times we conducted online calls. All work was done on time.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were very impressed with the skills and knowledge of Dhound security experts, as well as how effectively they built communication with everyone. They made the whole penetration testing process very simple and clear for us.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We are satisfied with everything
