Penetration testing, or pen testing for short, has long been a check the box activity for many organizations. Vulnerabilities are identified; however, very little is done to check that the repair has been completed, much less new vulnerabilities identified. That approach is changing. Continuous pen testing brings with it a near real-time identification of issues and Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) provides you with the eyes on the screen you may be lacking today. Darren Manners, Founder of RedSpy365, joins Status Go to talk about this evolution in pen testing.
