"Our students are responsible for maintaining the security of their organizations'
network infrastructures and websites, but they have no way of knowing if their
computer security investments are actually securing their network," said
Sondra J. Schneider, Security University's Founder and CEO. "Penetration
testing is one of the best and most comprehensive methods of precisely
determining the risk to network information assets. With CORE IMPACT, we now
have a powerful product that will help us show students how they can assess the
computer security of their network and accurately verify which of their
security tools are working effectively to protect their critical assets."
CORE IMPACT is designed to replace expensive, inconsistent manual penetration
testing services with a professional, state-of-the-art automated penetration
testing product. CORE IMPACT is the only commercially available product that
exploits a vulnerability, reports precisely where a network could be
penetrated and provides precise information so immediate corrective
action can be taken.

security classes available today," said Paul Paget, CEO of Core Security
Technologies. "Coupling CORE IMPACT with Security University's penetration
testing training expertise is a powerful combination that will benefit
information technology professionals of all backgrounds."

perform a penetration test to precisely identify compromisable network assets.
CORE IMPACT helps organizations safely understand a network's vulnerabilities
by proving where actual paths of attacks exist which must be eliminated.

the associated security risks, and the information necessary so that accurate
corrective action can be taken.
