See how Penetration Testing works

Reduce risk in real-time

Penetration tests are often delivered with limited transparency, long wait times, and static results. Our PTaaS delivers instant results and direct access to expert pentesters who are motivated to find elusive flaws.

Find more critical and high vulnerabilities.

Tap into our vetted, certified pentesters to find vulnerabilities, aligned to OWASP standards, that automated scanners and traditional pentesting approaches miss.

Accelerate pentest results to find and fix security issues faster.

Communicate with pentesters directly, and receive findings as soon as they are found. Initiate, monitor and track engagement progress. Receive a detailed final report for auditors.

Go above and beyond compliance.

Satisfy requirements for SOC 2 Type II, PCI DSS, ISO 27001, HITRUST, FISMA, SOX, and GDPR. Go beyond “check the box” with results that matter for measurable risk reduction.

What is Pentest as a Service (PTaaS)?

Pentest as a Service, or PTaaS, is a SaaS delivery model for managing and orchestrating pentest engagements. Pentests are authorized simulated cyberattacks on an organization’s attack surface, performed by human security experts to find and assess the severity of vulnerabilities. Pentests are time bound, typically two weeks in duration, and driven by a methodology checklist, ending with a detailed report of findings.

How does Pentest as a Service work?

PTaaS solutions provide a means for human pentesters to submit findings in real-time and for customers to consume results, interact with testers, and manage pentest programs on an annual basis. PTaaS, in some cases, also provides access to a community of vetted, background checked ethical hackers for a larger pool of testers with the potential for more diverse perspectives, skills and tactics.
