PenTera Selected by St Margaret’s Hospice Care to Automate Remote and Local Penetration Tests
St. Margaret’s Hospice Care, chooses Pcysys’ Automated Penetration Testing Platform, PenTera, to continuously test its security controls.
TEL AVIV, Israel, June 9th, 2020 – Pcysys has announced that St Margaret’s Hospice Care in the UK, has chosen Pcysys’ Automated Penetration Testing Platform, PenTeraTM, to continuously test its IT infrastructure security controls.
“PenTera has provided us with the solution we’ve been looking for – the ability to continuously test our security posture anytime, from anywhere”, said Nick Middleton, Director of IT at St Margaret’s Hospice Care. “By increasing the efficiency and cadence of testing, PenTera has enabled us to properly reevaluate many aspects of our cybersecurity strategy such as improving our password policy and Active Directory configurations. It is exciting to work with Pcysys and our partner provider Emerge, we see them both as essential in meeting the cyber challenge.”
The PenTera platform ethically challenges the entire IT network with the latest hacking techniques, prioritising remediation efforts towards vulnerabilities and controls that carry the majority of the risk. With PenTera, organisations perform remote and local penetration tests on-demand, to benchmark, maintain, and grow their cyber resiliency. The platform spans the testing of security controls, vulnerabilities, credential strength, access privileges, network policies, and devices. With PenTera, organisations can grow their cyber defense efficacy, their IT team productivity, and save on external consulting costs.
“Healthcare organisations, more than ever, are targets to malicious third parties”, says Steve Armstrong, UK Regional Sales Director at Pcysys. “By mimicking the same TTPs as a malicious attacker, PenTera enables St Margaret’s Hospice Care to prioritise remediation focusing on the most critical fixes allowing the organisation to continuously stay one step ahead.”

In this post, we will examine one method of encrypting data-at-rest, specifically how to achieve Data-at-Rest Encryption for MongoDB Community Edition (CE) containers through eCryptfs. Introduction Our goal at Pentera was to implement a solution that prevents data discovery upon theft when the system is offline (e.g. if a host is stolen or someone is...
After CentOS 8 was declared end-of-life (EOL), we had to find an alternative operating system (OS) for our on-premise solution, as did many other teams and organizations. Although our deployment is container-based, we still had to prepare the groundwork for different OS areas, from security patches and network modifications to installing required packages. We had...
