Packetlabs Ltd. Makes the Clutch 1000


To round off 2023, we here at Packetlabs Ltd. are thrilled to announce that we have made Clutch's 1000 list.

Let's dive into the relevance of this award (and the role you played!) in today's blog:

What is the Clutch 1000?

The Clutch 1000 is an exclusive list which is made up of the top 1000 B2B service providers (out of 280,000) from around the globe. This is the first year that Clutch has created this new category, and we are proud to be ranked so highly among what the platform deems to be "the best of the best."

Each company in the Clutch 1000 were chosen to be featured on this list based on their expertise in their industries and their track records with their past clients. We secured our place among the Clutch 1000 with our 4.9 out of 5-star review rating, placing us among the top 10% of organizations globally.

As a ratings and review platform, Clutch provides object ratings for service providers to create a field guide to the top firms across various industries. Clutch creates these shortlists for the benefit of businesses that are looking for suitable partner companies that can successfully fulfill their needs and contribute to the growth of their business.

Thank you to each and every one of our clients who have provided us feedback via Clutch to make this placement a reality.

Packetlabs: Top-Rated Cybersecurity Services

At Packetlabs, our flexible offerings encapsulate the following:

  • DevSecOps: DevSecOps is integrated early in your development cycle and acts as an extension of your development team to flag vulnerabilities within your existing detected management systems

  • Red Teaming: Red Teaming is a full-scope simulated attack designed to get a holistic review of the level of risk and vulnerabilities across people, processes, and tech in an organization

  • Purple Teaming: Purple Teaming is our collaborative testing exercise where the Packetlabs red team works with your internal security operations team (or blue team) to bridge the gap between offensive techniques and response efforts

  • Cyber Maturity Assessments: A Cyber Maturity Assessment supports the tactical direction of your cybersecurity strategy. As the first step in strengthening your security posture, this assessment generates the roadmap to strengthen your overall security program

  • Compromise Assessments: A Compromise Assessment uncovers past or present threats like zero-day malware, trojans, ransomware, and other anomalies that may go unnoticed in standard automated vulnerability scans

  • OT Assessments: OT Cybersecurity Assessments simulate the likelihood of an attacker reaching the control centre from an external and internal perspective with production-safe testing

  • Ransomware Penetration Testing: A ransomware penetration test evaluates the preparedness and risk of a ransomware attack and identifies gaps in people, processes, and technology, to determine the likelihood and readiness for a ransomware attack

  • Cloud Penetration Testing: Multiple perspectives help with strengthening your security posture. These include Cloud Penetration Testing, which simulates an attacker in the environment, and a Cloud Penetration Review, which provides insights into cloud-specific vulnerabilities originating from an insecure configuration. Each of these services can be conducted separately or, for maximum effectiveness, combined as an enhanced cloud security bundle

  • Objective-based Penetration Testing: Following a preliminary penetration test, objective-based testing conducts a more advanced simulated cybersecurity attack. The test is conducted by persistent ethical hackers who deploy multiphase attacks to gain access to your organization's data so that you can discover gaps and vulnerabilities unique to your organization and test your ability to detect and respond to threat actor

  • Application Security Testing: More targeted in scope than a regular pentest, application security testing uncovers vulnerabilities residing in your web and mobile apps. Application Security Testing actively explores your application from an attacker’s perspective

  • Infrastructure Penetration Testing: An infrastructure penetration testing assessment uncovers vulnerabilities in your IT and network systems and provides a tailored approach to each environment

These are in addition to the Packetlabs Portal, which enables you to quickly view findings, prioritize efforts, request retests after remediation, and monitor progress.

We were awarded a place in the Clutch 1000 by providing cybersecurity services that go beyond the checkbox. On top of employing only OSCP-minimum certified ethical hackers, the Packetlabs difference boils down to our 95% manual penetration testing. Instead of outsourcing our work or relying on automated VA scans, we guarantee zero false positives via our in-depth approach and passion for innovation: our security testing methodology is derived from the SANS Pentest Methodology, the MITRE ATT&CK framework for enterprises, and NIST SP800-115 to ensure compliance with the majority of common regulatory requirements. 


Alongside recently celebrating our twelfth year in business this year, our 95% manual penetration testing yielded a partnership with the SickKids Foundation, which was another one of our 2023 highlights: the SickKids Foundation is a fundraising organization based in Toronto that supports the Hospital with sick children. With over 1.5 million active donors, the foundation collects and manages sensitive information, which could result in reputational damage and loss of donors if breached.

This milestone (alongside the Clutch 1000) are only a few of what we've celebrated this past year. Thank you for being a part of our journey; we can't wait to see what 2024 holds.
