ALTOONA, Pa., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A year and a half ago Cyber Protection Group changed their entire pricing structure to "test the waters" in hopes of building ongoing relationships with more clients which the president of the company, Mike Miller, says has been very successful. Cyber Protection Group announced today that they will continue perform external penetration tests for $2,000.
Penetration testing and security vulnerability assessment pricing for the last several years has been exceedingly high. Companies can have $20,000 to $30,000 wrapped up in an assessment very quickly that are looking to satisfy PCI or HIPAA compliance. Penetration testing is in such high demand that companies are charging nearly $10,000 for simple external assessments. Cyber Protection Group also offers internal penetration testing, social engineering, web application testing, PCI GAP assessments, and a multitude of other security assessments at a low cost. Mike himself has over 20 years of experience in the technology and information security arena. "We have a passion for security pentesting and this allows us to do even more of what we love to do." Mike stated. Cyber Protection group is a smaller 8 to 10 person company that keeps overhead down. Mike also stated "Our assessments are performed with even greater care than the "big" companies because we create relationships with each and every one of our clients. In the end, we are just geeks that like to do ethical hacking." As companies continue to rake in tens of thousands of dollars for their penetration testing assessments, Cyber Protection Group aims to become a top 10 company by performing an extremely high quality assessment that are affordable to small, medium, and large businesses.
