“BitDam has identified instances of one malicious file for up to every 3K emails sent. This indicates that the likelihood is high for an enterprise to receive a cyberattack at any time. BitDam’s free PenTest helps organizations understand where their vulnerabilities lie.” - Liron Barak, CEO, BitDam.

BitDam, provider of cybersecurity solutions that protect enterprise communications from advanced threats hidden in files and links, today announced the availability of a new, free data security penetration testing (PenTest) via its website at https://www.bitdam.com/try-it/

Today’s enterprises are surprisingly still vulnerable to cyberattack, often finding it challenging to accurately gauge how well their sensitive data is protected. One of the key challenges in achieving an integrated security assessment, is gaining an understanding of existing security gaps and what is needed to close them.

A PenTest helps determine the effectiveness of an organization’s security tools by identifying strengths and weaknesses. BitDam offers a free, no obligation email PenTest available online. BitDam sends a controlled test, that includes a series of file-based cyberattacks, to a designated account. Any attack emails that are delivered to the determined test inbox indicate a failure point in cybersecurity. The BitDam PenTest report provides test results delivering insight into the strengths and weaknesses of an organization’s security solutions. The PenTest results are private, even to BitDam.

“Over the course of the past year, BitDam has identified instances of one malicious file for up to every 3K emails sent,” said Liron Barak, CEO of BitDam. “This ratio indicates that the likelihood is quite high for an enterprise to receive a cyberattack attempt at any time. BitDam’s free PenTest can help organizations understand where their vulnerabilities lie. Our PenTest is readily available on our website and is offered for free with no obligation. We are happy to provide this service to help a business understand where it may need to patch a hole in its security defense.”

BitDam can provide additional support to the organizations completing a PenTest, further examining any security gaps and performing broader PenTests within the organization, if needed.

About BitDam

Showing x10 detection rates compared to the industry standard, BitDam cyber security blocks advanced content-borne attacks across all enterprise communication channels. Protecting email (Office 365, G-Suite, MS Exchange), cloud storage (OneDrive, G-Drive, Dropbox, Box etc.) and IM (Slack, Teams, Skype and more) BitDam empowers organizations to collaborate safely. Our cloud-based solution proactively detects attacks, pre-delivery, preventing hardware and logical exploits, ransomware, spear-phishing and Zero-Day attacks contained in files and URLs.

While current cybersecurity solutions are based on knowledge of previous attacks, limiting their ability to detect unknown threats, BitDam’s unique attack-agnostic technology enables it to provide remarkably higher protection. BitDam learns the normal code-level executions of business applications such as MS-Word and Acrobat Reader. Based on this whitelist, BitDam determines whether a given file or weblink is malicious or not, regardless of the specific malware it may contain.

Utilized by hundreds of thousands of end-users, BitDam’s Advanced Threat Protection is deployed by leading organizations in Europe and the US, with a proven record of detecting threats that other security solutions fail to uncover.
