Core Security launches CISO level pen testing software

New tools!

Core Security Technologies is introducing new pen testing software that, according to the company, has robust reporting capabilities, enabling CIOs, CISOs and other executives to gauge risk to internal systems and gain greater visibility into the progress of ongoing security initiatives.

The Boston-based penetration testing firm, best known for its Core Impact Pro software for pen testers, launched Core Insight Enterprise on Monday.
