“The PenTera solution gives us full visibility of our infrastructure and helps identify and, above all, prioritize our cyber security gaps and misconfigurations. The intelligence and automation of PenTera have brought us, and our customers, to a higher level of cyber maturity with maximum efficiency,” said Filipe Frasquilho, Director of the Business Datacenter and Cloud at IP Telecom. “Understanding the attack surface, from a hacker’s point of view, allows us to better serve our customers, suppliers, and internal stakeholders.”
Rui Ribeiro, General Manager of IP Telecom, adds, “As a Telco and cloud service provider, cyber security is of the highest importance not only internally, but for our customers in the Portuguese market as well. After implementing PenTera in our network, we understood that reselling the solution would benefit our enterprise customers by providing a solution that can increase their cyber resilience.”

Requiring no agents or pre-installations, the platform enables organizations to focus their resources on the remediation of the vulnerabilities that take part in a damaging “kill-chain” without the need to chase down thousands of vulnerabilities that cannot be exploited towards data theft, encryption or service disruption.
“We are proud to partner with IP Telecom, an industry leader which puts cyber security at the forefront of its strategy and consistently invests in the field. We are certain IP Telecom will continue to gain unparalleled value from PenTera for themselves and for their clients,” added Noam Segev, Regional Sales Director at Pcysys.
