NetSPI Named “Most Innovative in Penetration Testing” in the Global InfoSec Awards

NetSPI honored in the coveted 10th Annual Global InfoSec Awards at the 2022 RSA Conference.

Minneapolis, MNNetSPI, the leader in enterprise penetration testing and attack surface management, was awarded “Most Innovative in Penetration Testing” from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.  

NetSPI represents the key criteria that CDM and the Global InfoSec Award judges look for in cybersecurity winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach.  

Traditional pentesting has not kept pace with the realities of business agility and cybercriminal sophistication. NetSPI has revolutionized the Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) delivery model to enable organizations to view penetration testing results in real time, scale to support innovation, orchestrate faster remediation, perform always-on continuous pentesting, and more. 

NetSPI’s Resolve penetration testing platform, backed by its global team of expert pentesters, helps clients improve vulnerability management and remediation processes, better understand and reduce risk, manage the evolving attack surface, and leverages automation to enable manual pentesting to find business critical vulnerabilities that tools alone cannot uncover.  

NetSPI continuously develops new solutions to meet evolving threats – most recently launching attack surface management and announcing enhancements to its breach & attack simulation services

“We’re thrilled to be honored by Cyber Defense Magazine,” said Aaron Shilts, President and CEO of NetSPI. “Our technology-powered services are disrupting the penetration testing industry, and this recognition is a true testament to our global team’s unwavering dedication to delivering world-class penetration testing services.”

“NetSPI embodies what we look for in leading innovators within the cybersecurity industry,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine. “NetSPI’s platform driven, human delivered approach to offensive cybersecurity provides a unique opportunity for organizations to think strategically about their proactive security efforts, instead of viewing penetration testing as a check-the-box activity.”
