Cigital consultants run penetration tests, execute code reviews, construct threat models, and give valuable remediation advice to our customers. Consultants do some work from our headquarters, but often go on site to help customers exterminate the bugs and untangle the flaws that make their systems insecure. Our consultants make themselves and their team indispensable advisors to our customers: they build the relationships that help create and identify follow-on assignments.
