Kolkata, West Bengal, India, 2010/01/07 - RAS Infotech, a leading IT distributor, in the Middle East and Africa, today announced its partnership with iViZ Security to launch unique on-demand penetration testing solution that helps protect network and application from critical threats.
RAS Infotech, a leading IT distributor, providing complete Network Security and Network Management Solutions in the Middle East and Africa, today announced its partnership in the region with iViZ Security to launch unique on demand penetration testing solution that helps protect web applications and network from critical threats.
Today, companies find it challenging to manage information security to protect themselves from hackers. This is made severe by alarmingly large number of new vulnerability discoveries every year. 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.
RAS Infotech, in partnership with iViZ Security, helps companies solve this critical problem with its new proactive on-demand security testing offering for networks and applications. This unique on-demand penetration testing solution helps identify all critical threats in your IT infrastructure and fix them.
Explaining the importance of this solution for companies, Bikash Barai, CEO of iViZ Security said “Customers find it time consuming and expensive to conduct periodic security tests using traditional methods. iViZ solution (ivizsecurity.com) solves this problem because they can now conduct security tests on-demand on any part of their network or application and find out its health and fix issues immediately. Our solution accelerates the test process while increasing the depth of coverage by finding the attack paths that are often missed out.”
Khazi Mohamed Akram, General Manager of RAS Infotech Limited said, “Award winning IVIZ penetration Test service will protect the investments made by companies on their Security Infrastructure by giving them insight in to security gaps and help them to mitigate the risks to their IT infrastructure.” He further said,” IVIZ penetration tests will also add to our bouquet of security solutions and enable us to offer broader range of solutions to our customers.”

Companies realize that it’s very important to prevent security breaches proactively and now RAS Infotech’s customers can leverage iViZ’s unique Artificial Intelligence based technology, On Demand Penetration Testing (SaaS based) and Hybrid Testing for Comprehensive Coverage to stay secure from emerging new threats”.
