Horizon3.ai Offers the First External and Internal Standalone Penetration Testing Platform in a Self-Service Portal | New


Horizon3.aia cybersecurity company specializing in autonomous penetration testing, today announced that it has extended the capabilities of its NodeZero platform to include external penetration testing. With this enhancement, Horizon3.ai is the first standalone penetration testing platform to offer organizations internal and external penetration testing in a single self-service platform.

“As threat actors continue to evolve their tools and techniques to evade detection within an organization’s network, it is crucial to shift from a peacetime security mindset to a mindset of war. The only way to stay one step ahead of attackers is to continuously attempt to exploit every path of attack inside and outside of an environment,” said Snehal Antani, CEO and co- founder of Horizon3.ai. “Horizon3.ai’s mission has always been to help organizations strengthen their security systems and improve security controls. By extending NodeZero’s capabilities to include internal and external penetration testing, organizations have full visibility into their cyber risk profile, allowing them to quickly fix anything exploitable and then verify that it has been deleted.

Horizon3.ai’s self-contained penetration testing platform, NodeZero, continuously assesses an organization’s internal infrastructure and external attack surface, identifying ways an attacker could chain information from collected identification, misconfigurations, dangerous product defects and exploitable vulnerabilities to compromise systems and data. By extending NodeZero’s capabilities to include internal and external penetration testing, organizations can now assess all of their assets, including on-premises, cloud, and hybrids, both inside and outside the perimeter.

When you combine the results of an external and internal penetration test, organizations have a a true understanding of their cyber risk profile across their environment.

NodeZero offers organizations the following benefits:

  • Check if public assets open the door to ransomware exposure – Ransomware attacks have become democratized, with criminal groups establishing Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) operations, renting out ransomware to recruited affiliates who, in turn, launch attacks against organizations and pay a “fee to RaaS vendors. With NodeZero, organizations will understand which attack paths ransomware actors can exploit to breach the perimeter, move laterally within the network, and access “crown jewel” data.
  • Visualize risk and impact – Understand the risk and impact of misconfigured third-party applications and weak or default credentials because an attacker would use them to break into your perimeter. Credential attacks are the fastest growing path of attack across the world, and NodeZero will autonomously and securely attack your public resources so you know where your most critical problems lie.
  • Improve asset management and eliminate shadow IT – With NodeZero, organizations can continuously discover their public assets, hybrid cloud assets, and internal assets. NodeZero enables organizations to understand and visualize the true risk these assets pose based on actual operation rather than just theoretical risk.
  • Understand third-party and supply chain risks – NodeZero can be run continuously, both internally and externally, providing an immediate understanding of third party and supply chain risks.
  • Save time and resources – Penetration tests can be set up in minutes and run as often as needed. NodeZero quickly identifies exploitable internal and external attack vectors and ineffective security controls. No extensive tuning, training, or certification is required, and results are prioritized with evidence, so time and resources can be spent fixing what matters.
  • Continuous security assessments – NodeZero is the purple team partner in every organization, orchestrating hundreds of attack tools and techniques across an entire environment to chain attack paths and demonstrate real risk and impact. This is not an annual compliance checkbox or a time-limited snapshot. Autonomous penetration testing with NodeZero can be automated and run as often as needed to ensure blue and red teams can focus and complement each other.

Register for our next webinar where Naveen Sunkavally, Lead Architect at Horizon3.ai, and Monti Knode, Director of Customer Success at Horizon3.ai, will provide insight into the power of NodeZero.
