Pentera (formerly Pcysys)

Pentera (formerly Pcysys) is the category leader for Automated Security Validation, allowing every organization to test with ease the integrity of all cybersecurity layers, unfolding true, current security exposures at any moment, at any scale. Thousands of security professionals and service providers around the world use Pentera to guide remediation and close security gaps before they are exploited.

The problem we solve

As hackers become more and more sophisticated, corporate security officers and regulators become more aware of the need to integrate the hacker’s perspective into their ongoing cyber defense strategy in the form of regular penetration tests.

Traditionally, penetration testing has been completed manually by service firms, deploying expensive labor to uncover hidden vulnerabilities and produce lengthy reports, with little transparency along the way.

Professional services-based penetration testing, as we know it today, is limited in scope, time-consuming, and costly. It represents a point-in-time snapshot, and cannot comply with the need for continuous security validation within a dynamic IT environment.

Our solution

Focused on the inside threat, Pentera's automated penetration-testing platform changes the rules of the game by delivering the power of 1,000 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 a variety of proprietary pen-testing techniques, Pentera generates an automatic attack summary report that visually illustrates the “attack story” from the hacker’s perspective, pointing to the security practices that require improvement and the vulnerabilities that need to be remediated.
