"Clear Books is an online accounting system used by thousands of small businesses in the UK.
As a SaaS based cloud application, web security is extremely important to us and our customers. More so as thousands of businesses rely on Clear Books to store their highly sensitive financial data.
With a growing web development team coding in a fast paced environment, it was important for us to get an expert third party security firm in to carry out a web security review. Perspective Risk provided the independent review we needed.
Perspective Risk carried out a week long security review of our application in a staging environment. From the very beginning the company was professional and organised. We received a daily update report of recent findings and the final report has provided a valuable blueprint for improving our web security. Risks were rated with clear guidance on the impact, probability of occurring, remedies and further technical details. Perspective Risk also made innovative use of video media to illustrate example findings.
We are extremely pleased with the thorough approach taken by Perspective Risk. We will definitely use Perspective Risk again for further security reviews of our application."

“We considered numerous different companies when selecting whom best to employ to conduct a security assessment of our corporate network. We decided upon Perspective Risk after speaking directly with Managing Consultant Pravesh, finding him both friendly and informative and more than willing to adapt to suit our needs.
After meeting with Perspective Risk, a comprehensive scoping document was quickly produced that captured all of our requirements and clearly explained each step that would be taken throughout the project life cycle. We found the scope fair and accurate and eagerly anticipated the results of the assessment.
Perspective Risk did not disappoint us, discovering a number of flaws in our security, the more serious of which we were advised of as they were found by the onsite consultants, who were polite, amiable and helpful at all times.
Perspective Risk’s findings were then detailed in a final report which was well presented and easy to read and understand. Their innovative rating scheme, centring on the impact of an attack and the likelihood of it occurring, allowed us to make effective business decisions based on the risk to our infrastructure.
To conclude, we have been delighted with all aspects of the Perspective Risk service and would not hesitate for a moment in using them again or recommending them to others.”
