Synack
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 www.synack.com.

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.
