Core Security Announces IMPACT 3.0 Penetration Testing Framework
Strategic security solutions developer Core Security Technologies, announced CORE IMPACT 3.0 – the new release of their penetration testing framework. Designed to replace expensive, time-consuming manual penetration testing with the state of the art automated penetration testing, CORE IMPACT enables real-world attacks on IT assets and presents analysis of information security risks in one comprehensive application.
Key new features in CORE IMPACT 3.0 include:
- Macro-building capability. Penetration testers can now build macros that sequence modules, and the results of one module can trigger the next appropriate module automatically.
- Client-side Exploits. Penetration testers can now compensate for the typical server-side focus of manual pen tests by using new exploits to pinpoint software risks on workstations.
- Automatic Updating of Modules. Penetration testers can receive automatic updating of modules and exploits, along with product updates, from the IMPACT 3.0 menu, ensuring that they are always up-to-date with the latest in professionally developed tools for assessing security risk.
- Scalability for Enterprises. Penetration testers can design tests that attack over 10,000 targets in their IT environment, as verified in beta tests in enterprise networks.
