Today, companies find it increasingly challenging to manage information security to protect themselves from hackers.

In 2008 alone, over 7000 new vulnerabilities were discovered - many of which did not have vendor patches for months. This, along with the complexity of regulatory compliance such as PCI, ISO 27001 etc., put considerable pressure on companies in managing the security of their network and web applications.

Imaginet, in partnership with iViZ Security, helps companies solve this critical problem with its new proactive cloud based security penetration testing solutions for networks and web applications. This unique offering would identify critical threats in an organization’s IT infrastructure and application and provide recommendations for remediation.
