While companies utilize dozens of security solutions, they continue to be compromised and are continually searching for their real cybersecurity gaps amongst the overload of vulnerability data. A primary issue security teams face is that they lack a way to continuously validate the effectiveness of the different security solutions they have in place. Automated Security Validation is revolutionizing cybersecurity by applying software validation algorithms, for what was once manual penetration testing jobs. It takes the attacker's perspective to challenge the integrity and resilience of security defenses by continuously emulating cyber attacks against them.

Security teams are always on the lookout for external threats that can harm our organizations. However, an internal threat can derail productivity and lead to human error and burnout: repetitive, mundane tasks. To effectively defend against evolving threats, organizations must leverage no-code automation and free analysts to focus on higher-level projects that can improve their organization’s security posture.
