)-- nRuns AG today announced its partnership with iViZ Security- the world's leading on-demand penetration testing company for applications and networks. n.runs AG, is a leading German consulting company for IT Security, Infrastructure and Business Consulting.
The security of web applications is increasingly becoming a complex process that is not only cost intensive but also difficult to manage. Enterprises are facing huge pressure to secure their publicly facing websites following their QA requirements. This is doubled by regulatory and compliance mandates like PCI DSS, ISO 27001, SOX etc. The dynamic nature of today’s web application as well as the ever evolving threat landscape is making web application testing and security a huge challenge.
iViZ’s On Demand Penetration Testing technology fulfils the demand for a security solution which is simple, efficient, effective and scalable, based on SaaS model. It provides the possibility to test infrastructure, applications and compliance on an ongoing basis. Findings can be verified and fixed manually, when indicated, by the experts of the n.runs consulting team. Penetration Testing that goes beyond simple Vulnerability Assessment helps organizations to uncover vulnerabilities which are otherwise missed.
With iViZ as part of its security portfolio, nRuns can now deliver penetration testing services much more profitably: minimizing delivery time, effort and increasing service scalability. "nRuns believes that top notch Managed Security Testing can only be achieved by partnering with innovative, market-tested security companies - iViZ exemplifies the technical and business vision we sought” said Donald Lee, CEO of nRuns AG. iViZ’s CEO Bikash Barai added: “The combination of iViZ's award winning technology to simulate human hackers and nRun’s strong expertise in security consulting services would provide a powerful and comprehensive value added solution to customers worldwide”.
With the introduction of iViZ’s technology, nRuns can now combine high professional threat analysis and manually performed technical analysis with the sustainability of repeating automated tests. “This will certainly lead to accurate findings, lower cost to customers and increased profitability from our security testing portfolio” Donald Lee further added.
