Efficient Vulnerability Management with Penetration Testing

  • Alex Horan, Project Manager
  • Wednesday, September 21st, 12:30pm - 1:15pm

This talk will be an opportunity for attendees to see a live demonstration of automated penetration-testing. In just minutes attendees will see CORE IMPACT safely exploit vulnerabilities in a target network, replicating the kinds of access an intruder could achieve, and proving actual paths of attacks that must be eliminated.

As a Product Manager at Core Security Technologies, Alex Horan is responsible for driving development of Core's desktop family of automated security testing solutions, including design of the products' functional capabilities and technical architecture.

Horan most recently spearheaded development of WebVerify, the company's solution for automated Web Application Security testing, WebVerify goes beyond testing the web application to illustrate how vulnerabilities in the web application can lead to exposures in the connected environment.

Having worked previously in operational security roles for a range of large and mid-sized companies, Alex has over 15 years of experience working with hardware and software-based security tools, vulnerability assessment and penetration testing technologies, and systems and network administration and auditing.
