Offense is the New Defense
BreachLock’s Founder & CEO, Seemant Sehgal, explains why Pen Testing as a Service (PTaaS) is at the forefront of the offensive security movement in a recent Cybercrime Magazine article, Penetration Testing – Offense is the New Defense.
In the article, Sehgal describes the three main issues he recognized with traditional, consultancy-based penetration testing solutions during his time as a security leader in one of Europe’s largest banks, and how BreachLock, now a leading PTaaS provider, has pioneered solutions for these issues with a purpose. He addresses how traditional penetration testing methodologies waste time, lack integration between pen testing and remediation, and weren’t scalable enough for today’s growing threat landscape, specifically questioning, “you are doing a pen test to [resolve] the findings, so why make remediation a different silo that is not integrated into your pen-testing process?”
Sehgal explains that by harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and certified human hackers to offer penetration testing services on an as-a-service basis with results hosted on an award-winning client portal, BreachLock saves companies time, bridges the gap between pen testing and remediation, helps companies lower their TCO, and enables the scalability required by businesses’ growing threat landscapes. BreachLock has built a loyal client base of over 700 customers and obtained quality certifications, such as CREST, ISO 27001, and SOC 2 in just 3 years of business – all with 100% in-house, certified penetration testers (CREST, OSCP, OSCE, CISSP, CEH, GSNA).
Pen Testing at the Forefront of Offensive Security Practices
Also mentioned in Cybercrime Magazine, BreachLock was highlighted in both 2021 and 2022 in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Security Operations as a sample vendor for Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS). BreachLock plans to continue leading as a pioneer in the offensive security space in the next five years.
