MINNEAPOLIS (August 5, 2020)—Core Security, a Fortra Company, today announced a new version of its award-winning penetration testing software Core Impact. This version adds flexible licensing, a more frequent, streamlined release process, and new product features to increase convenience and usability.

Streamlining the product release cycle has also further enriched customer experience. “Not only will the entire process be faster and easier for customers, but we will also be providing valuable updates on a more regular basis,” said Wenngatz.

This product release also incorporates several new features that offer added convenience and increased usability. These improvements include a new web interface option that simplifies remote connections with Core Impact, new integrations with OpenVAS and PlexTrac that further centralize security, and more efficient phishing campaign creation.
