The search is on to find the security champions of 2018 as Computing Security Awards announces this years’ nominees. We are proud to say that our Pentest-as-a-Service offering is shortlisted for “Pen Testing Solution of the Year”.
The prestigious awards recognize individuals, organizations, and products that are best-of-breed, working tirelessly to keep customers’ operations safe, productive and always ahead of the game.
Unlike some awards that require you to complete a detailed submission of your entry, finalists of the Computing Security Awards are nominated and decided based on votes cast. Voting closes on 2 October, with the winners announced at a glittering ceremony on 11 October.
We are biased, but we truly believe that Pentest-as-a-Service provides the best penetration testing experience for your organization. Unlike other providers in the market, it offers a modern subscription-based engagement that goes far beyond simply delivering the pen testing services and PDF report. Expert delivery from a dedicated cybersecurity team, Pentest-as-a-Service is underpinned by the SureCloud platform, which provides:
Vulnerabilities exist in every IT system, and for business-critical applications, the impact of an attack could be catastrophic, even business-ending. Often, these incidents are the result of a vulnerability that could be identified in a penetration test.
However, treating your penetration testing as a standalone exercise can’t protect your organization. The resulting static report only provides a snapshot of any vulnerabilities in your systems at a specific moment in time. It doesn’t show the full, ongoing picture, and it’s impossible for you to derive any value from it to feed back into your organization.
Some providers offer continuous penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities on an ongoing basis. But making sense of all the data and managing remediation from the numerous static reports can quickly turn into a nightmare, involving significant time, resource and manual effort to manage.
Imagine if you had access to a platform with visibility and oversight of all testing projects, including historic ones. Now imagine you can manage remediation, allocate tasks, and trend and track progress via dashboards. And what if you had full access to a market-leading cybersecurity team – what does penetration testing mean for your organization now?
“Organizations are continually trying to improve their security posture but often struggle with the pain of managing remediation from static documents, such as traditional PDF-based penetration testing reports. Winning ‘Pen Testing Solution of the Year’ would be recognition that the industry is tired of going along with how things have always been done and are ready to change to better protect themselves in today’s threat landscape.”
