Raxis listed as a Sample Vendor for Penetration Testing as a Service in two 2023 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ reports

We’re proud to announce that Gartner identified Raxis as a Sample Vendor for Penetration Testing as a Service in two Gartner Hype Cycle reports in 2023.

According to the Gartner Hype Cycle for Security Operations, “Organizations are turning to PTaaS to deal with the increase of attack surfaces due to accelerating use of public cloud and expansion of public-facing digital assets. PTaaS allows developers to talk to and receive guidance from pentesters instead of arguing with scanners, such as dynamic application security testing/static application security testing (DAST/SAST) scanners.”

In the Hype Cycle for Application Security report, Gartner states “PTaaS complements vulnerability scanning and application security testing, and provides cost-optimization and quality improvement of pentesting output and validation of vulnerability status. PTaaS enables organizations to elevate their security posture through continual assessment. It integrates validation earlier in the software development life cycle compared with traditional pentesting phases by giving access to real-time findings delivered through the platform, therefore enabling faster reduction of exposure.”


We believe our recognitions certainly validate the importance and value that organizations can realize by engaging in a continuous Penetration Testing as a Service solution. By implementing Raxis PTaaS, business stakeholders will now have visibility into the actual security risks to the organization over time.

Mark Puckett, CEO and Founder of Raxis

Raxis’ Penetration Testing as a Service solution customers receive at least one annual traditional penetration test to set a baseline and to meet common compliance requirements. For businesses where full time security is a priority, Raxis’ continuous anomaly detection and on-demand penetration tests are a key defense to newly emerging security findings. With current and historical findings detailed in the Raxis One portal and Raxis’ zero-day detection within PTaaS, businesses can rest assured that they have constant, key insights into their security posture.
