We're an Atlanta based penetration testing company, with a 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. While competitors were building programs around their customers’ last breach, Raxis was working to anticipate the next one. 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.
If you’re looking for real value through actionable results in penetration testing — we're that team.

We’ve kept our fun, easy-going culture.
Very quickly, Raxis services were in high demand among businesses with much at stake. Corporate customers who had invested heavily in cybersecurity needed a better way to make sure they were truly protected. Raxis simulated testing, built from the perspective of a determined and clever adversary, proved far more effective than traditional services.
Since the beginning, Raxis has had a great company culture. We have a healthy mix of really fun work and plenty of personal time outside of work. Our team knows when to focus hard and get the job done, and, as a matter of fact, we love what we do. Anyone can get burned out, and the entire team knows that’s a real risk. 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.
