Penetration Testing Wireless Embedded Systems.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2008
Several years ago a group of talented individuals with a passion for application security had a dream of beginning a firm specializing in information security. In July of 2000, they founded Paladion, which today is the fastest growing security company in Asia. Seeing a strong demand for security testing and a growing trend for on demand services, Plynt was formed in 2006 as an on demand application security testing & penetration testing service. Plynt has very rapidly grown in the US market serving customers in 25 states and also have a rapidly growing client base in the UK. Today, Plynt employs over 50 security engineers, serves over 200 clients from offices all over the world, and continues in their effort to provide reliable and thorough penetration testing.
Plynt.com has grown steadily and rapidly since its inception, and part of the reason for that is their desire to provide the best service to their clients every possible instance. They aspire to be the leader and the first choice when it comes to on demand application security testing. But the leaders at Plynt.com want to do more than just provide the best service to their clients; they also want to provide the best information. As a company, part of their objective is to help people make more educated decisions. In an effort to do that they have launched a blog to help both present and potential clients understand exactly what security testing is, and what it is that their company does.
The blog's catchy title, "Plynt Penetration Testing Blog -- Notes from the security testing trenches," embraces the goal of informing people about penetration testing, as well as to what exactly is happening at Plynt.com. The blog offers a good sampling of the type of work they do.
All of the articles are written by the company's very best experts, including Roshen Chandran, CISSP who is CTO of Plynt. Chandran is also co-author of Addison Wesley's book Know Your Enemy. Chandran has been evangelizing software security practices via articles, and tutorials for some time and really knows what he is talking about. Now he shares some of that information on the company blog.
Article themes vary from entry to entry. Most present expert advice and attempt to educate the person who isn't very familiar with the topic. What's more is that it is done in a creative way. They take a topic that might be difficult to understand and put it in terms that people can relate to. The title of one entry written by Chandran is, "Penetration Testing Wireless Embedded Systems." Chandran relates this topic -- one that many people wouldn't have a clue about -- to using a Remote Pilot System. This strategy enables the reader to better understand the subject.
Another useful strategy they use in their articles is dropping links within the text of the blog. These links offer definitions to terms and acronyms that people might not be familiar with. For example, another article discusses SSL VPNs, and offers a link to the definition of what SSL VPN is. Other article topics are related more to the company itself. One of their most recent articles, "We Are Hiring," is a short excerpt about the progression of the company, and how they are looking to recruit 20 new people. For someone with experience who is looking for employment of this nature, this could be a very helpful entry.
Plynt.com is a company looking to provide the very best to their clients. Their new blog along with the information they provide there is yet another example of how they intend to do just that. For more information on Plynt, please visit http://www.plynt.com.
