Lombard International Group has chosen Pcysys’ Automated Penetration Testing platform, PenTera, to automate its cyber security validation efforts.
TEL AVIV, Israel, Nov 19, 2020 — Pcysys has announced that Lombard International Group, a global leader in wealth structuring solutions for high net worth individuals and institutions, has chosen Pcysys’ Automated Penetration Testing platform, PenTera, to automate its cyber security validation efforts.
The PenTera platform utilizes the latest hacking techniques to scan and ethically attack the IT network, prioritizing remediation efforts with a threat-facing perspective. With PenTera, organizations can maintain the strongest cyber posture by performing penetration tests as frequently as needed – daily, weekly or monthly. Aligned with the MITRE ATT&CK framework, the platform covers the scope of vulnerability assessments, security controls, credential strength validation, network equipment testing, privileged access audits, and more, ensuring the organizational network is held to the highest industry standards while reducing cyber security services cost.
“Once we saw PenTera in action, its advantages over manual penetration testing were clear and we immediately identified how it could replace the majority of the service-based activities we undertake”, says Emanuel Tanase, Global CISO, at Lombard International Group. “With PenTera, we can secure continuous validation of the network whilst running both ad hoc and specific manual testing projects when required. This saves costs, increases productivity and enhances cyber resilience.”
“It’s great to partner with organizations that are aligned with our mission of true continuous security validation for the network, such as Lombard International Group”, says Sivan Harel, Benelux Regional Sales Director at Pcysys. “In today’s dynamic threatscape, it’s imperative that organizations have an on-demand and accurate view of their network security posture, which is achievable only through automation”.
