A Conversation with GigaOm

Join us for a fireside chat with Howard Holton, CTO of GigaOm, to learn how Pentest as a Service (PTaaS) aligns to modern digital business cycles and fits into a broader strategy for building resistance to attacks by cybercriminals. Attendees will receive access to a free copy of the GigaOm Radar report for Pentesting as a Service, which provides a comprehensive evaluation of the PTaaS market and key vendor offerings.

GigaOm’s Radar Report states that “PTaaS represents the revolution in the pentesting space that was long overdue.” PTaaS builds on the efficacy of penetration testing methods and adds modern SaaS-like features, such as an interface that clients access to review centralized findings—vulnerabilities that have been exploited, potentially in real time, direct communications with pen testers, standardized testing methods, and integrations with other technologies.

GigaOm provides technical, operational, and business advice for IT’s strategic digital enterprise and business initiatives.
