Synack was founded by former NSA cyber analysts to reinvent penetration (PEN) testing and security assessment services by leveraging accomplished white-hat researchers and incenting them to discover high-risk vulnerabilities in web applications, mobile applications, infrastructure, and hardware devices. Critical vulnerabilities are detected in more than 90% of engagements, even when the customer is fully HIPAA/PCI compliant. Vulnerability discovery is performed via a full packet capture gateway by vetted researchers, and customers have complete visibility into, and control over, Synack’s activities. For more information please visit

Synack and Aruba
Synack and Aruba have collaborated to bring best-in-class, confidential security assessment services to Aruba’s installed base customers. PEN testing is often overlooked or poorly implemented, even in high security environments. By raising awareness of proper methodology, bringing skilled professionals to the task, and reviewing all vulnerability submissions prior to escalating them, we have enabled Aruba’s installed base customers to realistically and safely gain awareness about business-critical vulnerabilities.
