John Tookman, Chief Revenue Officer and Senior Vice President of MRK Technologies said that "We pride ourselves on continuously bringing the best technology to our customers.

He further added that, "In the last couple of years, we've doubled down on our efforts to build out our Security Operations Center in order to provide best-in-class service offerings to our customers. Adding APTaaS is just the next step in continuing to achieve our mission of helping our customers achieve a stronger security posture amidst the ever-evolving threat landscape."

"Threat actors know how to chain together network misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, harvested credentials, and dangerous product defaults to create attack vectors you never imagined would be exploitable. Our partnership with MRK Technologies allows us to provide APTaaS to customers, helping them to harden their security postures with pentests that can run as often as they wish." Snehal Antani, CEO and co-founder of Horizon3.ai This new product complements MRK Technologies' Security Operations Center's existing managed securities portfolio, which includes Managed Detection & Response (MDR/EDR), Managed Security Information & Event Management (SIEM), Managed Deception Technology, and Managed Network Detection.
