"The solution offers a simplified approach to vulnerability verification and penetration testing, enabling organizations of any size to begin the process of understanding and addressing their security posture without the need for deep technical knowledge.

Penetration testing is a critical step in assessing the risk posture of the IT infrastructure by complementing vulnerability scans to identify gaps, verify known vulnerabilities for prioritization and decrease false positives, and ensure proper remediation.
