Security and risk management leaders responsible for security operations should test the efficacy of deployed security controls continuously by leveraging automated security testing solutions, which can improve security posture, increase productivity and reduce the attack surface
Tel Aviv, Israel, November 2nd – Pcysys, the leader in Automated Security Testing, was named a Gartner Cool Vendor in Gartner’s 2020 “Cool Vendors in Security Operations and Threat Intelligence” report.
With over 200 customers worldwide, Pcysys’ PenTera allows organizations to mitigate their cybersecurity risk by performing penetration tests in production environments on-demand. The platform ethically attacks the IT network with the latest hacking techniques, prioritizing remediation efforts based solely on proven attack vectors. Whether run remotely or on-site, with PenTera, organizations can benchmark, maintain and improve their cyber posture, ensuring the network is held to the highest industry standard while reducing cyber security services cost.
“As noted in the Gartner Cool Vendor report, ‘Security testing is a time-consuming and low-value compliance-driven process for many organizations. Automated security testing solutions that aim to emulate real attacks and remove some of the lower-value outcomes have increased in popularity and technical capability,” comments Amitai Ratzon, CEO at Pcysys. “We believe being named a Gartner Cool Vendor further validates our mission to help organizations strengthen their security posture through threat-facing prioritization based on the organization’s business risk.”
“Gartner clearly recommends: ‘Security and risk management leaders responsible for security operations should test the efficacy of deployed security controls continuously by leveraging automated security testing solutions, which can improve security posture, increase productivity and reduce the attack surface’,” says Arik Liberzon, Founder & CTO at Pcysys. “PenTera does just that. Hundreds of security professionals leverage the platform’s ease-of-use and unparalleled accuracy to increase network visibility and turn unknowns to knowns while reducing operational costs”.

The Greatest Hits of 2020
Who doesn’t love some good old nostalgia? Ok, it’s true, many of us are glad to see the back of 2020. But as we start 2021 strong, let’s take a moment to remember some of the community’s favorite content, including our top-read blog, our most-watched webinar, and a chance to make your voice heard on one of the year’s biggest controversies… the best Cybertoon of 2020!
A Big Step Toward Making a Vision Come True
Our end in mind when raising this Series B funding round was to enable a significant leap towards the company’s vision of becoming the world’s cyber security validation authority. This means automation, algorithm-based and completely “hands-off” penetration testing routines. In a technology combersed security market that spends very little on accuracy validation, automation is the dire need.
CEO Thoughts Post Round A – There’s No Stopping Us Now!
Almost two years have passed since I began my role as Pcysys CEO, joining Arik Liberzon, our Co-founder & CTO and Arik Faingold our Co-founder and Chairman, on this great mission to revolutionize Cyber Risk Validation, together with industry veteran Ran Tamir, our VP of Product, and Aviv Cohen, our visionary CMO. Being an enterprise sales veteran, and an ex-VP of Global Sales, I didn’t need more than 3-4 PoC’s at Pcysys, to understand that we’re onto something big. Very big.
