"As a lean IT team, we searched for a tool that would encompass automation of the entire testing cycle, from vulnerability assessment through exploitation and validation of remediation efforts. PenTera does just that," says Jens Berensmann, CIO of Wagerenhof. "It's critical for us to know that our many cyber security investments, such as our EDR tool, are justified. PenTera enables this validation at any given moment; it's a solution the industry has been longing for quite some time."

The PenTera platform ethically penetrates the network with the latest hacking techniques, prioritizing remediation efforts focusing on business-impacting deficiencies. With PenTera, organizations can benchmark, maintain, and strengthen their cyber posture by performing penetration tests on-demand, as needed. The platform enables organizations to align their testing capabilities to the industry stanard of the MITRE ATT&CK framework while covering the scope of vulnerability assessment, security controls, credential strength validation, network equipment testing, and privileged access audits, eliminating the need to maintain separate tools and increasing the security team's productivity.

"Continuous testing and challenging the IT infrastructure security stack is the only way for organizations, of all sizes, to stay ahead of attackers in today's dynamic threatscape," says Hanspeter Karl, DACH Regional Sales Director at Pcysys. "We're proud to partner with the spearheading team at Stiftung Wagerenhof and provide ongoing validation to their network, as well as help increase the team's productivity."
