PenTera’s new version, 3.0, provides human-like testing of networks and infrastructure to security teams who want to focus remediation on the real threats specific to their environment.
BOSTON and TEL AVIV, Israel, /PRNewswire/ — Pcysys, provider of the PenTera™ Automated Penetration Testing platform, announced today the availability of version 3.0, enabling CISOs to validate their organizational network security daily.
Focused on network and infrastructure, PenTera creates a new category by automating a critical cybersecurity function that, until now, was delivered as an expensive manual service – penetration testing. The platform enables businesses to continuously validate their security defenses against the latest cyber attacks and exploits. The platform is also available for Consultants and MSSPs to provide more competitive penetration testing services to their customers.
“Our roadmap is driven by the use cases coming from our many enterprise customers who are finding new ways to become more efficient in their risk validation practices,” said VP Products of Pcysys, Ran Tamir. “PenTera is a digital penetration testing platform that enables CISOs to find a fresh penetration testing report for the organization on their desk every morning and better guide their decisions as a result.”
New PenTera 3.0 features include:
- Cyber resilience score: every pen-test generates a scorecard and a resilience score in critical cybersecurity areas as privileged users, password strength, lateral movement, critical (static) vulnerabilities, and endpoint security. This score helps focus remediation and governance on the areas at risk as well as prove the returns on cybersecurity technology investments
- SIEM integration: whether you run a stealthy or a noisy pen-test, the results can now be integrated into the company’s SIEM to allow the SOC operators to have a full view of both the attack flow and prevention/detection activity
- Single-method tests: algorithmic pen-testing enables the discovery of complete kill-chains involving many vulnerabilities and hacking techniques, however, sometimes a lean test of a single exploit or vulnerability is required. The new single-method tests “a-la-carte” menu enables the selection of focused attacks of interest as a pen-testing target
- Enhanced attack capabilities: new attack techniques, remote execution, payloads, and evasion methods to assure the latest hacking techniques are tested against
- Remediation portal: Wiki-like documentation to explain the insight and impact of the found vulnerabilities, recommendations for remediation and configuration, as well as the technologies available to mitigate those risks
“The incumbent vulnerability scanning approach has proven less effective in detecting and prioritizing verified kill-chain vulnerabilities,” said CMO, Aviv Cohen. “It’s time for a different approach that discovers real attack vectors and points to the minimal amount of remediation needed to cut all of these kill chains.”

Five steps to mitigate the risk of credential exposure
Every year, billions of credentials appear online, be it on the dark web, clear web, paste sites, or in data dumps shared by cybercriminals. These credentials are often used for account takeover attacks, exposing organizations to breaches, ransomware, and data theft. While CISOs are aware of growing identity threats and have multiple tools in their...
WiFi – The Untested Attack Surface
Much of a company’s assets are connected to Wi-Fi networks. However, security teams are often less likely to validate these networks. This pushed us to wonder what we might find if we were to test a corporate WiFi network. After running the Pentera platform™️ over Wi-Fi, we found several vulnerabilities, which helped us gain insight...
