How to find a penetration testing company
We found this one of the hardest aspects of engaging a pen test company. Actually finding one. Using Google, we found we were presented with those companies that had the most budget to spend on ads. This is a competitive market and a lucrative market. Dominating the Google ads comes with advantages for the pen test company but for the consumer we find that can translate into higher prices.

UK Penetration Testing Companies
It may not be necessary to go with a UK pen testing company if you find a company that meets your needs. Often the work is done remotely and as such the actual location of the penetration testing company has less relevance.
What to be wary of
The thing we recommend being wary of is the upsell. All companies up sell but pen testing is a confusing topic with a lot of technical terms. It is easy to get confused and as a result it is easy to be quoted for something that you don’t actually want or need. Keep your vendor focused and on track and concentrate on meeting your needs and must haves. In time you may want additional services but concentrate on your immediate need first.
