Penetration testing and attack surface management provider NetSPI has launched its new blockchain penetration testing service.

NetSPI, in a prepared statement, stated it will “provide a comprehensive, full-spectrum evaluation of blockchain-based deployments to enterprises by utilizing its decades of penetration testing expertise, coupled with its understanding of the architecture’s unique security concerns.”

Capitalizing on Distributed Ledger Technology

The world’s largest organizations are now using distributed ledger technology to manage daily operations, from verifying insurance claims to tracking auto parts in the supply chain, according to NetSPI. Consequently, companies are recognizing the scalability, competitive advantages and revenue opportunities that distributed ledger technology presents.

NetSPI emphasized that its blockchain penetration testing services will evaluate all deployment models — private, permissioned, consortia and public, as well as various distributed ledger technologies, including ConsenSys Codefi, R3 Corda, Hyperledger Fabric, custodial platforms and public chains.

NetSPI Chief Technology Officer Travis Hoyt explained the inspiration behind his company’s new blockchain penetration testing technology:

“As adoption skyrockets, technology and security teams will need to quickly develop their blockchain acumen to support and protect these solutions. This begins with identifying and addressing people, process, and technology gaps. Our new blockchain penetration testing service line demonstrates NetSPI’s commitment to be relentlessly future focused, so our customers can be too.”
