I always find ITG easy to work with. The consultant involved was very professional and friendly, providing plenty of updates throughout the test and clearly explained his findings. The report provided plenty of information on any vulnerabilities found and the corrective actions needed to be taken.

Good grief, what an eye-opener this was! We chose ITG because the initial scoping call revealed their pen testers had heard about our not-so-common software setup and their cost was more realistic than the other quotes. I cannot recommend ITG enough - the whole service from beginning to end was exceptional with Loreta organising everything to Ross performing the actual pen testing. We are an educational institution with a complex network setup and I thought I knew enough to get by with IT Security, but Ross has brought me down a peg (or seven) and we will be employing ITG's services regularly to make sure there is nothing I've missed in the future.

It was a pleasure to work with the ITG team for this pen testing project - from clear guidance from the account manager through to regular updates from the testers themselves. Will use again

Working with the ITG team is nice and straightforward. Account management and technical functions are good and thus far we've had no real issues.
