Steven Maroulis
Founder and CEO, Jarvis Analytics
“When it came to pentesting and assessing our system against threats, we really gravitated towards the Pentesting as a Service model because it was important that my team could login and see exactly what was happening, what testers were working on and finding, as well being able to flexibly buy additional credits as needed.”

"One main benefit is the variety of skill sets that you're able to tap into because Cobalt has a community of pentesters that you can readily draw from. We don't have to hire more red team people, we can bring them on as needed"

ERIC GALIS
VP OF COMPLIANCE AND SECURITY AT CENGAGE

“The main benefits that we get from Cobalt are speed, scalability, and repeatability. We’re able to quickly launch and execute pentests; and beyond that, we’re able to see individual findings in real time and relay them to the engineering team so they can start triaging immediately.”

"Being able to interact with findings in the platform and discuss them through Slack makes for a much more efficient process. We’ve been able to get into it and engage with the findings there, which is a big improvement on the old process."
