Astra Security – The New SaaS Solution for Security
Astra Security’s new Pentest panel provides users with more options and information, such as 1,500 test cases, developer collaboration, CXO analysis, certificate downloads, assessments of potential risks based on risks, etc.
In the current situation, many companies are working to provide their potential customers with unique services mixed with the safest measures. Hence, regardless of the size of an organisation, they are rapidly moving towards affiliations with a publicly verified company that meets all required cybersecurity standards.
Astra Security is seeing a growing interest for its cyber safety resolutions from start-ups. The start-up's plans include managing internet security and payment exceeding set thresholds
Astra Security is Addressing Industry’s Growing Security Concerns
With the boost in online services and pandemic induced widespread digitisation over the past year, consumers are becoming more aware of online safety. With increased sensitivity toward cybersecurity, customers want to be involved with companies that have passed online safety tests and inspections. It is, therefore, becoming all the more critical for companies of all sizes, who have an online presence, to protect the interests of their customers.
Additionally, as the number of cyber-attacks continues to increase, businesses are increasingly recognising their responsibility to perform defensive functions for themselves and the victims of cyberattacks. According to a recent risk-based security report, hackers exposed 36 billion files to data breaches between the first and third quarters of 2020, and malware usage increased by 358% in 2020.
Astra Security is playing a vital role in maintaining cybersecurity and going one step further by issuing verifiable cybersecurity certificates. Today, start-ups in the segment must meet industry needs by translating the needs of consumers into solutions based on their concerns. Astra Security understands current sensitivities and is committed to bringing products to market that provide a seamless and secure customer experience.
