Core Upgrades Impact

Core Security Technologies announced Core Impact 6.2, an enhanced edition of the company's flagship software product

BOSTON -- Core Security Technologies, provider of CORE IMPACT, the first-to-market penetration testing product for assessing specific information security risks, today announced CORE IMPACT 6.2, an enhanced edition of the company's flagship software product designed to help companies easily and efficiently test their network security policies. CORE IMPACT 6.2 includes enhancements that enable organizations to more effectively and efficiently test their security defenses against increasingly prevalent client-side attacks that rely on social engineering, such as spear phishing and e-mails with malicious content. The new version also features enhanced encryption and authentication capabilities to help testers more easily meet secure communication requirements during penetration tests, as well as expanded target platform support for testing networks with AIX systems.

"The threat landscape constantly shifts. Currently, the endpoint is the most prevalent target. Existing vulnerability management solutions sometimes find it difficult to keep pace with the mix of technical and nontechnical attack vectors," said Charles Kolodgy, research director, Secure Content and Threat Management program at IDC. "To deal with this situation, customers should consider a solution that offers penetration testing to simulate attackers' technical methods along with an analysis of nontechnical or social engineering threats, as well. This will improve enterprises' ability to assess their real security risks."
