Those guys doing pen tests are usually highly trained security experts. It is normal that those charge you at the very least 1000USD per person per day. What figures did you expect, if I may ask?

Ahmed Amin AhmedCybersecurity Trainer and ConsultantCommented:
instead of going to penetration testing which is actually very expensive. You may go for Vulnerability Assessment/Security Assessment. Using automated tools available in the Market.

e.g..
1- Nessus - http://www.tenable.com/products/nessus
2- GFI LanGuard- http://www.gfi.com/products-and-solutions/network-security-solutions/gfi-languard
3- Nexpose - http://www.rapid7.com/products/nexpose/

or You may go to freelancer's websites, and hire a cheap penetration tester.
www.freelancer.com, or Elance.com

Having a third party evaluate your security is not the same as doing it yourself - no matter what tools you use, no matter if you are good or not. You should have someone else do it.

cjoego, any feedback? This question is growing old.
