TEL AVIV, Israel and BOSTON, May 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Professional services-based penetration testing, as we know it today, is transforming. While the need for expert and consulting-services remains instrumental for some areas of the penetration testing scope, a great deal of the work can be better performed by innovative software algorithms, in a continuous manner, as required in a dynamic IT environment. This paradigm shift is gaining tremendous momentum, especially in the area of network and infrastructure penetration testing. More and more service providers leverage Pcysys's automated penetration testing platform, PenTera, to allow businesses to continually assess and improve their cyber resilience while complying with current GDPR, CCPA and PCI regulations.
The PenTera platform automates the discovery of vulnerabilities, security device misconfigurations, user privileges, and credential deficiencies. Requiring no agents or pre-installations, the on-premise platform is set to scan and ethically-hack the network with the latest hacking and exploitation techniques while ensuring an undisrupted network operation. Detailed test reports are auto-generated together with proposed remediation based on proven attack vectors leading to the critical information assets.
In the announced PenTera SP (Service Provider) edition, certified consultants, service providers, and MSSPs will be able to purchase a bulk of licenses for penetration-test instances and consume them discretely for different customers that they serve. The option to resell the software remains available as well.
"Penetration Testing Automation is the next technology frontier in evaluating cybersecurity risk," said Noam Hendruker, Director, Head of Global Cyber Consulting Group in BDO Israel, "We are looking at an inflection point in the security testing market which we intend to lead as innovators to improve the cyber resilience of our MSSP customers. Along with other breakthrough managed services that we provide we believe that our cooperation with Pcysys will change the way organizations consume PT services."
"There are simply not enough skilled pen testers in the world to meet the demands of the market to validate security defences," said Ran Tamir, VP of Products, Pcysys, "We are working with the leading penetration testing service providers in the world to launch new services based on PenTera SP."
"MSP/MSSPs have been waiting for a solution like PenTera SP to come along for a long time," said Joe Graci, President Interwork Technologies, "The platform is the perfect channel solution that allows our Service Provider partners to seamlessly conduct penetration tests for their clients simultaneously, thereby offering a scalable solution that increases productivity ten-fold and differentiates them in a competitive market."
