The value of the testing lies in the heavy manual effort and custom exploit development.
At ISE, vulnerability assessments follow a proven methodology:
Tools are useful.
Tools should be part of your strategy.
Tools should not be your entire strategy.
Product-based security typically doesn’t customize the testing to your goals and objectives. The tool is simply set up and run.
However, no tool is ever going to be able to abuse functionality. It will never be able to develop custom exploits. It will never replace the value of a proper assessment performed by a human.
Tools sometimes deliver confusing results, such as false positives and inappropriate severity ratings, without equipping you with actionable insight. Instead, you need human intelligence. You need to establish a threat model. You need to view your system the way a real attacker would.
With ISE, you get human experts. We are hackers. We are security researchers. We’ve assessed hundreds of systems and discovered thousands of vulnerabilities. (Check out our research here.)
By having real humans hack your system, you find out the real issues that you need to worry about. In the real world, you’re defending against intelligent, motivated, problem-solving humans - not just scans. Defend accordingly.
We help you go beyond the basics.
We abuse functionality.
Find the unknown unknowns.
We do all of those things, and make it easy for you. Our clients love how flexible we are. As their needs change, we adapt right along with them.
We help you take the findings and do something with it. We help you fix the many problems you are certain to find in this rigorous, consultative approach.

Vulnerability assessments help you across a variety of technology domains. At the core, they all link back to your application security in one way or another.
Find and fix security vulnerabilities so you can prevent unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial-of-service of your network and its resources. Where others stop at the network level, we go further. We help you harden the softest of your soft spots: the applications deployed in your network environment.
Many information systems rely heavily on third-party integrations, which inherently requires trust, data sharing, and privileged access between your systems and those outside of your organization. As a result, your vendors’ application security problems become your security problems. We help you understand and manage these complex extensions of your application attack surface.
Your databases are an extension of your application; protect them from unauthorized access, in order to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of all of your assets. Assume you’ll suffer a breach, so that in the event your database is maliciously accessed, the leaked information is useless to anyone who gets it.
We can help you with that!
You need to understand how attackers think. How they operate. How they’ll break your system.
We know how you feel.
From newly funded startups to Fortune 10 enterprises, we’ve helped companies of many varieties overcome these same security challenges. We’ve published security research on solutions across a range of systems, including cars, phones, IoT, password managers, medical devices, blockchain, AI, AR, and more. You need a partner who can help you find and fix your vulnerabilities. Who can help you get better.
You’re in the right place.
