Atlanta based, global reach

Raxis was founded in 2011 by Mark Puckett, an Atlanta information security expert who saw a burning need for more realistic penetration testing. Many larger companies claimed to do pentests, but few were doing it right — and none were doing it very well.

In response, Mark assembled an elite team of security pros — certified, skilled experts who shared his view that pentesting had become stale and predictable. From their combined experiences, they saw that the traditional approach to pentesting was no longer effective. While competitors were building programs around their customers’ last breach, Raxis was working to anticipate the next one. By thinking ahead and staying up to date on the latest tactics used by cyber criminals, Raxis was able to provide their clients with a more comprehensive and thorough pentesting experience. This approach quickly set them apart from the competition and cemented their reputation as a leader in the industry.

Today, Raxis is proud to have clients all over the world using a fully work-from-home team that resides all over the United States. Visit our Meet The Team blog or check out our Leadership Team to learn more about the smart, fun people that make up our amazing team.

In addition to our penetration testing services, Raxis has evolved to also focus on identifying hidden cybersecurity risks for businesses. Our mission has expanded to include helping companies discover any vulnerabilities they may be unaware of, in order to strengthen their security measures. With thorough and comprehensive reporting, we aim to assist companies in fortifying their defenses and mitigating potential threats. Keeping up with the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity, our goal is to support businesses in safeguarding their valuable information and assets from malicious actors.

We’ve kept our fun, easy-going culture

Forget about being the cool kid in school, Raxis was the new popular kid in the corporate world. Companies were lining up for Raxis’ services because they were tired of getting cyber-attacked left and right. Raxis simulated testing, built from the perspective of a determined and clever adversary, proved far more effective than traditional services.

Since our beginning in 2011, Raxis has had a great company culture. Our vibe is a sweet blend of super fun work and ample time to do our own thang. Let’s be real, we know when to buckle down and be professionals, but honestly we just really dig what we do. And hey, we’re not immune to being burnt out. It happens to the best of us!

It’s even more real to pentesters because we absolutely love what we do, and sometimes we can’t put down the keyboard when we’re hot on the trail of a potential breach. We’re always joking around on our Slack instance, catching up on family news via our Zoom calls, or sharing the coolest new hacks that we find online. Best of all, we are not afraid to ask each other for help.

This ego-free environment fosters a help-each-other culture that is our real secret to success. As a virtual company, we know we have to work extra hard to build in-company relationships, and we do that by offering to help a fellow pentester with some ideas or maybe picking up the phone to check in. Yeah, it’s really as good as it sounds to work at Raxis.

Now an award-winning leader in its space, Raxis conducts more than 600 penetration tests a year, sometimes even to double-check the work of our competitors. We also assess cyber defenses, train security teams, and monitor for new threats. Our team has fun together; check out our blog! We happily serve satisfied customers all over the world and have built many incredible partnerships with leading companies to resell our services.

We Believe in Data Privacy

At Raxis, our core mission revolves around protecting our customers’ sensitive information. We understand that trust is paramount in today’s digital landscape, and we take this responsibility seriously. Our commitment extends beyond mere compliance; it’s ingrained in our company culture.

We employ robust encryption protocols, stringent access controls, and continuous monitoring to ensure that customer data remains confidential. Our dedicated team of career security professionals tirelessly evaluates and enhances our processes to stay ahead of emerging threats. Regular security audits and vulnerability assessments are integral to our practices.

“Our customers’ trust is our most valuable asset,” says Raxis CEO, Mark Puckett. “We treat their data as if it were our own.”

Our unwavering commitment to safeguarding sensitive information led us to undergo a rigorous SOC 2 audit. Conducted by compliance assessor Strike Graph, this comprehensive assessment evaluated our controls and practices related to data security and operational excellence. We are proud to announce that we successfully completed the audit in November 2023. The SOC 2 examination, established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), ensures that personal assets of our customers—both existing and potential—are protected. Our annual SOC 2 assessments underscore our dedication to maintaining the highest standards of data security.

We are constantly advancing and broadening our security service offerings while staying committed to achieving top-notch data protection at Raxis. Your confidence motivates us, and we are privileged to join forces in protecting your data.
