Agile Pentesting

Pentest at the speed of your SDLC

An Agile Pentest focuses on a specific area of an asset, or a specific vulnerability across an asset. Agile Pentesting is flexible in nature, and usually has a smaller scope. The final artifact for an Agile Pentest is an automated report, intended for internal use.

Overview

Pentesting for ALL your needs

Pentesting can do more for your security program than just fulfill compliance obligations. If your team is launching a new feature, making code changes to an existing feature, or preparing for an M&A, pentests can help maintain critical security standards. The best part? With Cobalt, you can pentest for a wide range of scenarios without sacrificing your agility and speed.

“When we first went with Cobalt it was purely for PCI requirements, but we were looking to scale our program and pentest on a more continuous basis. Cobalt gave us the ability to pentest on a frequent basis with minimum effort from our teams. Saving us time and providing us quality results on a consistent basis.”

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

“A good pentest for us is the right people, doing the right tests. But then it’s also communicating that effectively and then partnering with our organization in order to actually close those vulnerabilities once they’ve been found.”
