From pentesting to red teaming: Security testing solutions compared

picus Logo 2019In our recent blog, What is security testing and why is it important?, we talked about how security testing is one of the single most important jobs an effective security department can do.

FedRAMP Authorization: Why ‘Moderate’ Matters

cofense logoFedRAMP, the federal program created to assess the security of cloud service providers (CSPs), saves time and cuts costs for U.S. government agencies that would otherwise conduct their own assessments. CSPs are granted authorizations at three impact levels: low (includes low-baseline and low-impact SaaS “li-SaaS”), medium, and high, aligned to the impact levels based on NIST guidelines. While the high-impact level protects the most sensitive government data, the moderate-impact level                                                               meets the needs of many agencies.
