Pentesting is DEAD.

Traditional ‘snapshot’ penetration testing cannot keep pace with modern rates of business and technology change. It is underpinned by an ethos that “point in time” testing is enough. And this is no longer true.

Any cyber testing approach that ‘sets a scope’; adds a finite start date and end date; and delivers a ‘final’ report for you to consume at the end of the engagement ONLY delivers value for the moments that the testing occurred.

The results are out of date the moment they are published.

We call this result of legacy testing approaches the ‘Cyber Risk Gap’ – undetected security holes emerge and induce risk once testing ends simply because your organisation’s attack surface is constantly evolving through natural change.

Believing that your organisation is secure because an (immediately out of date) test the report says so is not an effective security posture; especially one whose damaging cyber blind spots could linger until the next ‘snapshot’ test in 6 or 12 months…and so the cycle of a false sense of security rotates another turn.

There is a better way.
