The Continuous Security Testing service is a consultant led vulnerability identification and verification service which makes use of automated vulnerability scanning along with significant manual testing against a broad scope in a continuing engagement. The purpose of the service is to continually monitor a customer’s external attack surface for new vulnerabilities, changes in the scope of the attack surface, and proactively inform customers of discovered issues along with recommended remediation; with the overall aim of reducing the lifetime of each vulnerability. Manual testing includes identification of issues which automation alone could not identify, exploitation of all issues, often chaining multiple findings together in order to determine the true impact of vulnerabilities for the customer.
