Minneapolis, Minnesota – NetSPI, the leader in enterprise security testing and vulnerability management, today announced its acquisition of Silent Break Security, a Utah-based security testing firm which specializes in network and application testing, red teaming, and adversary simulation. Through this acquisition, NetSPI will broaden its footprint to create a complete package for offensive cyber security and attack surface management. With the integration of Silent Break Security’s manual testing team, along with their proprietary software platforms and toolsets, NetSPI will improve its ability to scale up vulnerability management programs to meet client needs.
“It’s our vision to secure the world’s attack surfaces with brilliant people and disruptive technology. The Silent Break Security team is the perfect complement to our strong culture and its software stack a natural fit for helping us drive innovation and leverage technology as a force multiplier,” said Aaron Shilts, President and COO of NetSPI. “I am very excited about the opportunity this presents our team. By leveraging the skills that Brady built in his Silent Break Security team, I believe NetSPI has an opportunity to disrupt the penetration testing industry.”

Individually, NetSPI and Silent Break have been working toward many of the same goals and, now together, we will become a much greater force to be reckoned with.”
The combined NetSPI and Silent Break team will provide a complete package for offensive security through the following core strategies:

We help organizations defend against adversaries by being the best at simulating real-world, sophisticated adversaries with the products, services, and training we provide. We know how attackers think and operate, allowing us to help our customers better defend against the threats they face daily.
At NetSPI, we believe that there is simply no replacement for human-led manual deep dive testing. Our Resolve platform delivers automation to ensure our people spend time looking for the critical vulnerabilities that tools miss. We provide automated and manual testing of all aspects of an organization’s entire attack surface, including external and internal network, application, cloud, and physical security.
Our proven methodology ensures that the client experience and our findings aren’t only as good as the latest tester assigned to your project. That consistency gives our customers assurance that if vulnerabilities exist, we will find them.
