Egnyte built security testing into their development DNA.
Egnyte manages and secures the most valuable data and content across platforms for businesses. Businesses trust Egnyte with all of their data, so security has always been top of mind. With their continuously growing team and evolving product, Egnyte knew it was important to have the vulnerability testing and web application testing Cobalt’s Pentest as a Service (PtaaS) platform offers.
Egnyte wanted a holistic view of its security posture to reinforce their promise of secure data to customers — with the intention of security testing across the whole platform.
Egnyte was looking for a trusted solution for vulnerability testing and web application testing in order to quickly pinpoint and remediate areas of weakness.
Slow Time to Resolution
Before Egnyte partnered with Cobalt, the time to resolution was slow and inefficient.
Egnyte valued the human interaction Cobalt provides with the Cobalt Core pentesters, creating transparency through ongoing communication.
Ongoing Quality Results
Egnyte wanted to provide ongoing results to customers, maintaining trust and security throughout the entire customer partnership.
Quick Process Time
Working directly with the Cobalt researcher cut down the processing time and downtime significantly for Egnyte.
Cobalt provides the transparency of communicating with a real person throughout the pentesting process, compared to written discussions that often led to different aspects being tossed over the wall before Egnyte partnered with Cobalt. Cobalt's PtaaS platform offered a solution overall that allowed Egnyte’s security teams to be involved early in the development cycle for a more transparent and collaborative approach to pentesting.
With that in mind, it’s better to start vulnerability searching as early as possible — Egnyte recognized that sometimes what you may find later on can cause you to rewrite areas that a company is not yet considering.
