Synack, the premier crowdsourced platform for on-demand security expertise, today is giving customers the easiest, most flexible and most innovative approach for deploying critical cybersecurity solutions to defend against today's digital threats.
Synack Campaigns empowers organizations with on-demand access to a community of 1,500 skilled and trusted ethical hackers to perform a range of tasks, from targeted security checks to cloud configuration assessments. Customers can take advantage of Campaigns through the Synack Catalog, which provides customers with an app store-like experience, to deploy Security Operations activities.
These additions complement Synack's market-leading approach to crowdsourced cybersecurity with unparalleled abilities to integrate penetration testing — and other key security tasks — into organizations' security operations. This expansion lets customers extract more value from the Synack Platform and the Synack Red Team (SRT), Synack's network of the world's most skilled and trusted ethical hackers.
This is a game changer,Cybersecurity shouldn't ever be a one-size-fits-all solution. We're expanding our platform to make it truly customizable, on-demand and seamless. Some customers need vigorous penetration testing while others may want a hacker to perform an emergency assessment. Now, they can do all of that on one easy-to-use platform.
Jay Kaplan, Synack CEO
Synack Campaigns give customers on-demand access to the SRT to meet specific needs and solve unique security issues. Campaigns deliver actionable security intelligence for application security, compliance, vulnerability management and more. Each Campaign consists of a group of Missions, or security tasks, which researchers perform. These can range from checking for OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities, to cloud configuration checks, to get a hacker's perspective on an asset.
The Synack Catalog allows customers to browse, launch and track Campaigns directly in the Synack Portal. It also enables organizations to take full advantage of SRT talent through the Synack Platform and gain critical security insights and knowledge to improve security across the entire enterprise.
With Synack Credits, customers will have more flexibility than ever to purchase Campaigns that best suit their testing needs and take advantage of new and existing offerings at any given time. The options built into this approach mean organizations can utilize Synack's integrated and controlled platform as needed to supplement their own teams and technologies.
"It's a simple, smarter, more agile and manageable approach to security," said Peter Blanks, Chief Product Officer at Synack. "We looked at what customers needed, and we delivered. This is a better approach to cybersecurity that's the most adaptable and accessible. We'll continuously innovate at the scale and speed our clients require to accommodate the dynamic threat landscape. Ultimately, this will make organizations more secure and, as a result, improve cybersecurity for everyone."
