On some websites you may see something to the effect of, "Security Tested by and date". Why don't we have this? Simple. It's counter intuitive! Ask yourself this question, "Why would you want to have a company you hardly know poking at your computers daily to see if they can find a security whole?" It's like paying someone you hardly know and never see to check the windows and doors of your house to see if they are locked or not.
