“NetSPI has not only delivered some of the most actionable and insightful recommendations through the course of the engagement but has also been very collaborative in how we can improve the true program.”
With over 200,000 teams across the globe leveraging their sports video analysis tools, Hudl is always adapting to change. Whether that means entering new markets, or keeping up with ever-evolving attack vectors, they needed a partner that could help them build and validate their long-term security program.
That’s why Rob LaMagna-Reiter, Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer at Hudl, sought out NetSPI’s offensive security expertise to help ensure the robust data protection for all their coaches, students, athletes, and other consumers of their content.
Why Hudl Selected and Continues to Work with NetSPI
- Personalized touch: Having primarily relied on NetSPI’s Penetration Testing as a Service, Rob has had a good glimpse into the capabilities and depth of skill sets NetSPI brings to the table. He stated, “Where NetSPI excels and achieves, and why we selected NetSPI as a partner, was the personalized touch that they brought to all of our assessment and security services – it was very relationship-driven, getting to understand what our problems are and helping us align with what the business desires from a successful security program.”
- NetSPI listens to its customers: Rob values vendors that are attentive. “Bringing in customers for feedback helps reassure us that [NetSPI] is still mission-driven and focused on solving the right problems to try to make life easier for all of us at the end of the day,” he shared.
- The NetSPI team helps Hudl’s developers improve: Outside of the technical report of findings NetSPI provided, Rob finds the developer education that happens in parallel to be one of the most valuable aspects of their penetration testing engagements. He shared, “Easily single digits on the number of hours per week per developer team [saved] on education that they don’t have to go out and consume themselves. It’s immensely beneficial because now the code that is released has less defects and less issues. It helps our entire application secure code program.”
