Read about the improvements we launched to our PtaaS Platform last month: Pentest Management Platform Open Beta, collaboration tracking, and richer content from our vulnerability detector

Welcome to the Cobalt Release Blog! This highlights improvements we made in April to our Pentest as a Service (PtaaS) platform, as well as helpful information and best practices from our product teams, engineers, and pentesters.

For Customers

Introducing Cobalt Pentest Management Platform Open Beta

We know penetration testing is a critical component of enterprise security, and forces teams to juggle a myriad of data and tools, resulting in inconsistent processes and results. Before organizations can scale their offensive security, they need to address these inefficiencies.

We built our award-winning platform for pentesters, covering the entire lifecycle of a pentest from planning, launching, and collaborating on tests to writing reports, tracking vulnerabilities, and remediation efforts. We are now opening up our pentest management technology used by over 400 pentesters worldwide to in-house security teams.

Opt-in to the Pentest Management Platform Open Beta to:

  • Reduce administrative work for faster turnaround times and remediation efforts
  • Integrate findings into your SDLC via Jira and GitHub, or the Cobalt API
  • Standardize reporting with customizable and automated templates
  • Track program improvements by leveraging ongoing test data and analytics
  • Visualize your end-to-end pentest program in a single platform

Add Bulk IP Targets Faster 

When creating pentests, bulk paste multiple IPs on the target page and they’ll automatically add as separate tags.

Easily See Collaborators on a Pentest

Navigate to the Collaborators tab on a Pentest to quickly see which team members have access to the pentest.


For Pentesters

Enriched Content from Vulnerability Detector Findings

Our vulnerability detector is a vulnerability scanner powered by Nuclei. We’ve released enriched content for two of the most commonly created low-severity findings for pentesters. This reduces time spent running basic checks and gives pentesters more time for creativity.
