About this talk

Join this fireside chat with Howard Holton, CTO of GigaOm, to learn how Pentest as a Service (PTaaS) aligns to modern digital business cycles and fits into a broader strategy for building resistance to attacks by cybercriminals. GigaOm’s Radar Report states that “PTaaS represents the revolution in the pentesting space that was long overdue.” PTaaS builds on the efficacy of penetration testing methods and adds modern SaaS-like features, such as an interface that clients access to review centralized findings—vulnerabilities that have been exploited, potentially in real-time, direct communications with pen testers, standardized testing methods, and integrations with other technologies. GigaOm provides technical, operational, and business advice for IT’s strategic digital enterprise and business initiatives. Key takeaways: -Today’s business practices require modern approaches to application security that can keep pace with changing digital landscapes and evolving threats, which is especially important for penetration testing. -PTaaS is an emerging solution that benefits security operations teams with a SaaS platform for more efficient program and engagement management. -Certain PTaaS providers leverage crowdsourced communities of ethical hackers, including vetted and certified pentesters, for greater diversity and scale in the pentester pool.
