Business Driver: PCYSYS PenTera Automated Penetration Testing


Complexity is the sworn enemy of information security. As services are expanded to increase an organisations competitive advantage or provide customers with increased functionality, so too does the surface area available to digital assailants to launch attacks against organisations. Then there’s compliance requirements needed to maintain PCI certification. Penetration testing is a mandatory requirement depending on the annual revenues transacted with credit cards. Many other organisations demand that business partners undergo rigorous penetration assessments prior to being granted admission to secured ecosystems or ERP systems. At its core a penetration test is a good way to test that both externally facing internet and internal secured network infrastructure is secure and digital assailants can’t reach resources.
