InteliSecure Strategic Partner: Rootshell

Protect against ever-evolving cyberthreats with continuous next-generation penetration testing.


Why Rootshell?

Many think penetration testing is a necessary evil—simply another compliance requirement to meet. Rootshell has long understood that the value of testing goes far beyond simply checking a box.

Rootshell’s mission is to provide the best tools, products, services, and people, in a tailored, continuous program of testing, assessment, and intelligence; delivered as actionable insight, in a single pane of glass.

Through their approach, organizations gain the confidence that comes from a true understanding of their security posture—and the empowerment that comes from having the insights to act on incoming threats.

If you’re ready to maximize your penetration testing program benefits, InteliSecure can help.

Continuous, Real-Time Penetration Testing and Intelligence

InteliSecure and Rootshell understand that periodic, point-in-time pen test engagements provide little ongoing value. Applying a scattershot of tests to disparate assessment and intelligence tools can hinder the efforts of your team to visualize, prioritize, and mitigate the most pressing threats.

In contrast, a program of continuous testing, provided as part of a comprehensive, real-time security strategy, provides actionable information—in a program that enables and prepares your team to handle it.

The Rootshell approach provides an integrated program of timely insights. When delivered inside an established, comprehensive data protection program such as InteliSecure’s managed data protection services, you benefit from a continuous, real-time security strategy—and greater protection against cyber threats.

Ongoing Enterprise Class Penetration Testing

Annual, project-based, or periodic penetration testing no longer provides meaningful value. Learn about Rootshell’s CyberCare services, an ongoing testing program that enables more effective risk management.
