KUBRA was looking for quality pentesters and consistent documentation to help budget and scale security testing

KUBRA is a renowned technology company that provides customer experience solutions for some of the largest utility, insurance, and government organizations in North America. They provide services such as billing and payments, alerts and preference management, mobile apps, and utility mapping solutions, meaning they handle a variety of critical data. As a tech company managing over 1.5 billion transactions annually, KUBRA wanted a pentest partner to ensure all of its data remains protected.

When we first went with Cobalt it was purely for PCI requirements but we were looking to scale our program and pentest on a more continuous basis. Cobalt gave us the ability to pentest on a frequent basis with minimum effort from our teams.

The Challenges

Talent sourcing

Talent Sourcing

KUBRA found it was often expensive and difficult to retain pentesters before receiving top-notch expertise from the Cobalt Core.

Traditional pentesting

Cobalt allows KUBRA comprehensive, consistent, and standardized documentation and reporting.

The Challenge

Tushar and his team at KUBRA were looking for a trusted pentest partner that would give them access to top-quality talent and provide detailed reporting to help more effectively track security improvements and budget well.

Cobalt’s PtaaS platform bolsters security by discovering vulnerabilities and giving KUBRA the opportunity to act on remediating those areas of weakness in real-time. Security teams can stay ahead of fixing issues as they arise instead of waiting until the test is complete, and sharing key takeaways with stakeholders is a breeze.

The Solution

KUBRA came to Cobalt for a single pentest but quickly realized the potential to nurture and expand their entire security testing program. As a result, they’ve hardened their security posture with a security chaos engineering mentality of frequent testing that builds resilience.
