Name selection for a uniquely different company can be a daunting task, and there is a story behind the name White Badger Group. Our goal was to select a name that conveyed the essence of what computer hacking has always been - "the challenge of the hunt, deception and conquest"! Most hackers invest countless hours, focused on bypassing all of your security efforts, hacking their way into your system to get the valuable information. Why? Because almost everything you have has value, it can be exploited for a profit!
While traveling through Yellowstone National Park we stumbled upon the legend of the White Badger. It is reported that when this rare and elusive animal was on the trail of his prey there was no stopping him, relentlessly focused in his attack, the prey seldom escaped. It is storied that even the grizzly bear did his best to avoid an encounter with the White Badger.
To ensure your network security, the staff at White Badger must also be willing to be relentlessly focused in our efforts to stress test and evaluate your network's security. We must maintain the highest level of intellectual focus to ensure we have utilized the most recent tools an attacker would use to gain unauthorized access.

Several clients have suggested that the "White" in our name represents the "White Hat Hackers", and the "Badger" represents the relentless nature of hacking. Either way, you can be assured you are getting the best network security resources available in the industry when you call on the experts at White Badger Group.
