Trustwave Launches On-Demand Pen Testing Service

Trustwave has launched a new subscription-based, penetration testing service that lets businesses schedule, manage and adjust penetration tests through a cloud-based portal.

Trustwave has launched a new subscription-based, penetration testing service that lets businesses schedule, manage and adjust penetration tests through a cloud-based portal.

Using the new service, Trustwave Managed Security Testing, customers can regularly test for security weaknesses within networks and applications, the Chicago-based company said.

Trustwave is making the new testing service available to customers that utilize its TrustKeeper cloud and managed security services platform, as well as new customers who are looking for penetration testing services only.

Trustwave Managed Security ServicesTrustwave explains that the service “demonstrates actual exploitable vulnerabilities with methods employed by real-world attackers” and provides an interactive report detailing both tactical and strategic recommendations for remediation.

“Today’s threats are stealthier and more hostile than ever so businesses must consistently update their security plans to stay in front of potential attacks. With mere point-in-time testing — testing that occurs just once or twice a year — businesses could unknowingly leave a network or application exposed to an attacker and possibly face a costly, damaging attack,” said Andy Bokor, General Manager, Threat Intelligence & Research at Trustwave. “With Trustwave Managed Security Testing, we leverage our cloud-based TrustKeeper platform to help customers more easily tap our security testing tools augmented by our ethical hackers to address complex attack scenarios, find vulnerabilities within their security, and remediate those vulnerabilities to strengthen their overall security posture.”

Trustwave currently offers five separate tiers of testing, where clients select the level of testing necessary based on the value of assets along with any associated data and the goals of testing efforts, such as meeting compliance requirements.

The service is available immediately with pricing starting at $5k per year.
