During your evaluation process for a penetration testing vendor, you may want to consider several elements, including:

  • What are the objectives of your pentest?
  • What type of pentest do you need (web application, mobile, infrastructure, etc.)?
  • What is your timeline?
  • Does your vendor have credible references?
  • Does your vendor have valid liability insurance?
  • Have you seen sample reports?
  • What methodology is used?
  • What is the expertise and experience of the ethical hackers?
  • Has the pentest vendor performed projects similar to yours?
