“With IT infrastructure and cyber threats evolving faster, it is critical that real vulnerabilities are identified and remediated before they are exploited,” said Justin Lee, Managing Director, Obscure Technologies. “Pentera’s solution validates our customers' security against the latest hacking techniques and vulnerabilities to dramatically reduce risk exposure and provides them with a clear, actionable roadmap for remediation.”

Pentera’s Automated Security Validation platform enables users to dramatically improve security readiness and ability to defend against cyber threats. Emulating real-world techniques of hackers across the entire cyber attack kill chain, Pentera’s platform continuously challenges existing cyber security controls to provide security teams with an actionable roadmap for remediation.

“Pentera’s Automated Security Validation platform assures security readiness across the complete attack surface,” said Kellen van Rooyen, Vendor Manager, Obscure Technologies. “Validating the efficacy of existing security, Pentera facilitates a major shift for security teams from operating under assumptions to embracing clarity.”

“We believe that Obscure Technologies' wealth of expertise and market reach makes them an ideal partner to deliver Pentera’s solutions to the South African market,” said Morgan Jay, SVP Sales, EMEA & APAC. “Our partnership will strengthen Obscure Technologies' already impressive cyber security offerings and introduce critical automated security validation capabilities to improve their customers’ security posture.”
