Minneapolis, Minnesota – NetSPI, the leader in enterprise penetration testing and attack surface management, has been named one of the Top Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health, and satisfaction.
“NetSPI wouldn’t be what it is today without its employees and the culture of innovation that we’ve built,” said NetSPI President and CEO Aaron Shilts. “Even during a turbulent 2020, we had an employee retention rate of 92% which alone speaks volumes in an industry that has zero percent unemployment. I thank each and every member of our team for helping to make NetSPI a Top Workplace.”
The results of the Star Tribune Top Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. The analysis includes responses from over 76,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.
“We are especially proud of the fact that our employees called out NetSPI’s top strengths as interdepartmental cooperation, execution, and innovation. This award shows how well our teams work together, which is a key to our success,” said NetSPI Director of People Operations Heather Neumeister. “Seeing the variety of responses throughout the survey really validates the culture we have at NetSPI. Working with great people, doing important work, and having fun came through in many of the comments provided.”
This Top Workplace recognition follows an especially successful 12 months for NetSPI. Recently, NetSPI announced it raised $90 million in growth funding led by KKR, with participation from Ten Eleven Ventures. In 2020, NetSPI acquired Silent Break Security and incorporated its proprietary Adversary Simulation and Red Team Toolkit software into the company’s offensive cyber security and attack surface management offerings. NetSPI also launched Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) in 2020, powered by its Resolve™ platform. 2021 also promises more business opportunities for NetSPI with upcoming additions of risk scoring, vulnerability intelligence, ransomwareattack simulation, and more.
To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Nearly 3,000 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.
