This new platform gives rapid visibility to internet-connected devices, misconfigurations, bugs and flaws, and actively integrates with products such as Security Scorecard, Tenable Security Nessus, OWASP Zap Proxy and 20 other tools to assist humans in finding bugs and flaws.

  • Built on the CATSCAN® methodology used by hundreds of critical infrastructure companies.
