Core Releases Impact 7.0

Core Security announced CORE IMPACT v7, the most comprehensive product for performing enterprise security assurance testing

BOSTON -- Core Security Technologies today announced CORE IMPACT v7, the most comprehensive product for performing enterprise security assurance testing. CORE IMPACT v7 introduces major enhancements to address the significant increase in social engineering attacks threatening end users and their applications. These new capabilities augment CORE IMPACT’s existing functionality for testing the security of server and desktop operating systems and critical OS services, resulting in the broadest range of testing options available, coupled with the easiest-to-use and most cost-effective security assessment software available today. The major enhancements in v7 include:

  • the first and only automated Client-Side Rapid Penetration Test (RPT) methodology implemented with easy-to-use wizards
  • a re-architected version of Core Security’s industry-leading agent technology
  • advancements to the CORE IMPACT platform to simplify security testing and facilitate compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard
  • a new dashboard that provides a real-time view of the industry’s most comprehensive, reliable and quality-assured exploit database.

“The bad guys are testing every organization's defenses every single day,” said Mike Rothman, President, Security Incite. “Whether it's targeting client-side vulnerabilities on desktop applications, social engineering or phishing attacks, the organization is exposed. The question is not if, it's how much and what is at stake. Enterprises should be poking and prodding at their networks and systems frequently with automated tools to know what the bad guys already know - how and where your environment can be exploited.”
