Does this service replace a security consultant?

This is a great question, and one we get asked quite often. In short, Tinfoil Security doesn't replace a good application security consultant or penetration testing team - it augments them and allows you to stay secure between audits. We recommend having a really good penetration testing group audit your application about once a year (more often if you can afford it), and using Tinfoil Security for recurring checks to keep you safe in between audits.

The reason an automated service can never replace a good consultant, unfortunately, is that humans have one thing computers don't: ingenuity. With that said, the world of security pentesting and consulting is so wide and vast that in many cases Tinfoil Security does actually perform a better job than a team of penetration testers who aren't well trained or as good as they appear to be. We've worked with many really great teams in the past, and are happy to recommend some to you if this is something you're interested in pursuing. Feel free to contact us and we'd be happy to assess your situation and make some introductions.

As always, if you have any questions or issues at all, please feel free to contact us in our Support Chat or via any of the methods listed on our Contact Page and we'll be more than happy to assist.
