{We started working with Security Brigade as a cost effective solution for doing VAPT for applications and networks for our customers. But we have developed a great partnership with Security Brigade over the last 6+ years. They treat our customers as their own customers and provide solutions and do the activities as per agreed terms and sometimes even they don’t mind going beyond and deliver to customer.

In my role as leading the cybersecurity Initiative at multiple national system integrators in India, I have worked with them to provide VA/PT, External Attack Surface Management, and Red Teaming services to large corporate customers. In each case they have met or exceeded expectations resulting in repeat business. I have no hesitation recommending their services for quality conscious customers wanting to enhance their security posture.
