3 reasons for implementing continuous security testing

Harold de Vries


Continuous cybersecurity testing is crucial for maintaining the security of your digital assets and infrastructure. Your IT infrastructure is like a living organism, it evolves every day. It can be through new applications, new devices, updated settings, but it’s changing.

For that reason alone you can no longer rely on an annual or even bi-annual pen test. There will be too many changes within your infrastructure and leave potential vulnerabilities undetected for too long. Add the increasingly fast evolution of the threat landscape and you’ll risk becoming a sitting duck to threat actors.

In this blog we describe three of the most important reasons to implement continuous cybersecurity testing:

Adaptation to evolving threat landscape

The threat landscape is constantly evolving, with cybercriminals developing new techniques and exploiting vulnerabilities. Continuous cybersecurity testing allows you to stay ahead of these threats by regularly assessing their security posture. By identifying vulnerabilities and weaknesses in real-time, you can take proactive measures to address them before they are exploited.

Risk mitigation

Cybersecurity incidents can have severe financial, legal, and reputational consequences for organisations. Continuous testing helps mitigate these risks by proactively identifying and addressing security issues. By assessing the security posture of your systems and applications regularly, you can reduce the likelihood of successful cyberattacks and the associated damages.

Identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses

Continuous testing helps you identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in your systems and applications on an ongoing basis. Cyber threats and attack techniques are constantly evolving, and new vulnerabilities can emerge at any time. Regular testing allows you to stay ahead of potential threats by identifying and addressing security flaws promptly.

How our Atrax solution can help

Our Atrax solutions combines all tricks hackers use when attacking your business into one automated. It continuously maps vulnerabilities in your entire attack surface infrastructure, and provides the critical insights to fortify them. Unlike traditional security, which relies on scheduled testing, Atrax proactively tests every day to deliver accurate information. Whenever it finds a vulnerability, it will actively exploit it, as an automated and targeted pen test. This methodology allows us to simulate real-world cyberattack scenarios to ascertain the extent of the risk to your business.
