Our aim is to engage with vendors as closely to an actual customer as possible. If a free trial is offered, we take it. If it is necessary to first engage with sales and request an account, we use the contact options provided on the website and wait for a reply, even if we already have contacts at the vendor.

However, while we engaged like a prospective customer would, we made no attempt to hide our identity or intentions at any point. We use real names and identify ourselves as employees of CyberRisk Alliance. We’re clear from the very beginning that we intend to perform product reviews and publicly publish the results. No compensation is requested or accepted for any of our reviews.
