Core Security Technologies and Security University Partner to Deliver Penetration Testing Training

Leading Training Institution to Add CORE IMPACT to its Worldwide Curriculum

BOSTON, MA AND STAMFORD, CT - March 29, 2004:
Core Security Technologies, provider of CORE IMPACT, the first-to-market penetration testing product for assessing specific information security risks, announced today that it has partnered with Security University, the leading hands-on information security curriculum and content developer, to deliver penetration testing training classes worldwide. Under the terms of this agreement Security University will integrate CORE IMPACT into several of its training courses. Information technology professionals from around the world will now have greater access to CORE IMPACT, the first commercial grade penetration testing product.

"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 University provides some of the most thorough and useful computer 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."

CORE IMPACT makes it easy for any network administrator or security engineer to 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. CORE IMPACT reports specfically where a network could be penetrated, the associated security risks, and the information necessary so that accurate corrective action can be taken.
