Tel Aviv, Israel, November 2nd – Pcysys, the leader in Automated Security Testing, was named a Gartner Cool Vendor in Gartner’s 2020 “Cool Vendors in Security Operations and Threat Intelligence” report.
With over 200 customers worldwide, Pcysys’ PenTera allows organizations to mitigate their cybersecurity risk by performing penetration tests in production environments on-demand. The platform ethically attacks the IT network with the latest hacking techniques, prioritizing remediation efforts based solely on proven attack vectors.
