Synack, the most reliable crowdsourced penetration testing platform, revealed just recently that it was named to the 2019 CNBC Disruptor 50 list. This is another amazing feat as this would be the fourth time the company would be recognized for changing the status quo in traditional security testing. The company was able to change the status quo by scaling resource-strained security teams with Synack’s elite crowdsourced ethical hacker team, augmented by Synack’s AI platform.
The largest difficulty in cyber security in recent times can be traced to difficulty scaling. There will be more than 3.5M open cybersecurity jobs by 2021 and also, a growing number of development organizations will build and release new code multiple times per day and on average, more than 180 vendors will gain access to a company’s network in any given week.
Synack is the very first penetration testing solution that renders seamless integration of artificial intelligence and human intelligence at a continuous rate; a (24/7 within 365) cadence, in a bid to solve the issue of scale for security teams.
To buttress Synack’s position as a market leader, when Gartner’s Crowdsourced Security Testing Platform (CSSTP) category was published last year, the only security company profiled in the category was Synack.
Synack is not a company to merely recruit a crowd. Rather, it keeps, structures/develops, harnesses, and channels the crowd using technology. Synack Missions supply well-laid methodologies for testing to its customers, for strict adherence to compliance standards such as PCI and NIST.
In addition to this, the company has also started the industry’s first Attacker Resistance Score, that assists organizations in measuring and understanding their security from the perspective of a hacker. Top brands in various industries are making use of this new scoring standard to enhance brand trust with customers. On the average, Synack customers that have made use of crowdsourced penetration testing for two or more years are about twice stronger against cyber-attacks than they were in their first year.
