Spacecom Adds Pcysys PenTera™ to Hack at Hackers and Offset Vulnerabilities

Pcysys has announced that Spacecom has selected PenTera™ as their Automated Penetration Testing platform to validate the Cyber Resilience of Spacecom’s IT network.

Operating in a technical and innovative space, Spacecom maintains and evolves its security stack and continuously validates its effectiveness. One of Spacecom’s main reasons for deploying PenTera™ was Pcysys’ mass presence in the Israeli market and its famous ability to “prove the concept” in only a few hours.

Requiring no agents or pre-installations, the PenTera™ platform scans and ethically penetrates the network with the latest hacking techniques, prioritizing remediation efforts with a threat-facing perspective. The platform enables corporates to focus their resources only on remediating vulnerabilities that take part of a damaging “kill chain” or attack vector.

Pcysys delivers an automated penetration-testing platform that assesses and reduces corporate cybersecurity risk. By applying the hacker’s perspective, our software identifies, analyzes and prioritizes remediation of cyber defense vulnerabilities. Security officers and service providers around the world use PenTera by Pcysys to perform continuous machine-based penetration tests that improve their immunity against cyber attacks across their organization networks.

Kobi Ghan, CISO at Spacecom, said within 15 minutes of running PenTera™, actionable results were received that would have taken weeks to see, if at all, with manual pentesting companies.The company has been searching for a solution that would allow for the validation of the firm's security controls on an ongoing basis for quite some time. The PenTera™ platform is vital to enhancing Spacecom's security testing practices to continually build the company's cyber resilience.

Sivan Harel, Director of Sales for Israel and Northern Europe at Pcysys, added that the company is grateful that Spacecom recognized the value of Automated Penetration Testing and chose PenTera™ to ensure its cyber security posture is optimal at all times.
