Penetration Testing as a Service

PTaaS powered by real penetration testing experts

Cutting-edge technology combined with expert hackers

Raxis employs highly skilled pentesters and advanced software to regularly monitor your system for any emerging threats. Our Penetration Testing services ensure the continuous viability of your security measures for maximum protection against potential breaches.

Powerful asset management

While PTaaS means Penetration Testing first, our managed pentest service also makes dealing with multiple systems and security vulnerabilities a little bit easier. Thanks to Raxis One, you’ll have a clear view of each security finding and details on how to resolve. Once you’ve remediated, you can kick off a retest to ensure the gaps are closed.

Time Travel helps you track progress

Using our Time Travel feature, Raxis One gives you a view of your security posture at any point in time you choose. This powerful tool provides a simple way to track changes in your environment over time.

Penetration Testing, not re-branded scanning

When we set out to build a PTaaS or continuous pentest offering for Raxis, we had a lot of concerns around reducing quality and the impact that would have on our customers. Unlike many of our competitors, our solution remains audit approved as we make an attempt to exploit and provide a proof of concept as evidence.

The secret is our engineers

Through the power of Raxis One scanning, our system keeps an eye out to identify possible cybersecurity vulnerabilities. If something is found, Raxis penetration testing engineers step in to determine viability of the new issue, map an exploit plan, and make an attempt to breach your systems.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is PTaaS?

Raxis PTaaS, or Penetration Testing as a Service, combines the speed and accuracy of security scanning tools and real human powered Penetration Testing. Raxis uses state of the art automated vulnerability scans, powered by Tenable, to watch for changes and new risks from emerging threats. If something is detected, we move quickly to perform an analysis of the potential findings and subsequently a real penetration test, allowing you to focus on business while we keep an eye on your cybersecurity risk. Raxis One provides a way to check on your security posture at any time, as well as the ability to communicate in near real-time with our penetration testing engineers.

  • Is PTaaS just a vulnerability scan?

At Raxis, our Pentest as a Service (PTaaS) goes beyond a simple scan. We offer a complete range of Penetration Testing services utilizing our experienced team and state-of-the-art software. Our thorough report not only includes detailed screenshots, but also provides step-by-step remediation guidance for each identified issue. On top of that, we conduct retesting and validation to ensure your complete protection. Rest assured, Raxis PTaaS delivers much more than just a standard Pentest – it’s a comprehensive solution.

  • Is it possible to kick off a penetration test on-demand?

On Demand Penetration Testing is an excellent fit for organizations that are making frequent changes to their applications or network environment. By skipping the procurement process, onboarding penetration testers, and frequent kick off calls, PTaaS On Demand provides a fast way to start a Penetration Test powered by the Raxis team of professional hackers. The Raxis team will work closely with your development or network teams to help resolve security findings in near real-time, giving you a real advantage in speed to market and reduced security risk.

  • Should I wait to fix known security issues before starting with PTaaS?

When it comes to keeping your company secure, it is important to establish a strong base. We acknowledge that each company has its own unique operations and may feel confident in their current security measures. Therefore, if our team discovers any weaknesses during our Penetration Testing, we will collaborate closely with you to address them and identify the most effective solutions that cater to your business needs. Additionally, we value the importance of time, which is why we offer the option to oversee these issues through our PTaaS service, saving you time and effort. With Raxis, you can rely on our unwavering dedication to safeguarding your company. Always remember, we are here to assist in whatever manner you prefer.

  • Does this mean PTaaS provides unlimited penetration testing for my application?

With continuous pentesting, our team conducts frequent scans to monitor your system for any changes. We carefully look for new elements that may have emerged since our last analysis. If we find something noteworthy, we will carry out another Penetration Test to thoroughly examine this potential new attack vector. This updated information will be reflected in your Raxis One report, which will also include recommendations on how to address our findings. This process will be repeated every time we discover a new potential attack vector. As for on-demand pentesting, where you have the option to initiate a new penetration test, there are certain limitations. You are able to select the number of on-demand tests you would like per year. These tests will only be conducted upon your request and will include a full pentest, report, and retesting when you are ready.

  • Does PTaaS have a Penetration Test report that I can use for my audit?
