As hackers become more sophisticated, corporate security officers (and regulators) have become more aware of the need to integrate the hacker’s perspective into the ongoing cyber defense strategy. Traditionally, penetration testing has been done manually by firms, deploying expensive labor to uncover hidden vulnerabilities, producing lengthy reports, with little transparency along the way. Professional services-based penetration testing as we know it today is time consuming, “point in time” by nature, intrusive, expensive and cannot comply with the need for continuous security validation within a dynamic IT environment.
Focused on the inside threat, Pcysys’ automated penetration-testing platform changes the rules of the game by delivering the power of 1000 ethical pen-testers, eliminating the need to hire pen-testing firms to conduct costly, intrusive pen-test exercises that ultimately do not generate a comprehensive vulnerability picture. After automatically scanning and enumerating an organization’s entire network and applying our proprietary pen-testing techniques, Pcysys generates an automatic attack summary report that visually illustrates the “attack story” from the hacker’s perspective, combining the good security practices they need to incorporate and the vulnerabilities they need to remediate.
