Synack is a security testing platform known for its malware, which is malicious software designed to exploit and damage computer systems. The company has recently expanded its continuous security testing with the introduction of an Attack Surface Discovery offering and scalable AI penetration testing. This initiative aims to help security teams stay ahead of evolving threats, particularly in the area of API security, which remains challenging due to many API endpoints being headless and lacking a front-end interface. Synack's CEO, Jay Kaplan, emphasizes the importance of this development given the complexities of testing the efficacy and security of APIs. The Department of Defense (DoD) has been running standalone bug bounty programs in collaboration with Synack, among other platforms like HackerOne and Bugcrowd. These initiatives include competitions such as 'Hack the Pentagon', covering departments like the Air Force, Marine Corps, Army, and Defense Travel System assets. Synack provides a hacker-powered intelligence platform that uncovers security vulnerabilities often missed by traditional pen testers and scanners. In 2023 alone, Synack uncovered over 13,000 vulnerabilities for its clients, including federal agencies and a growing list of Global 2000 customers. In 2022, Synack achieved a significant milestone by receiving the FedRAMP Moderate "In Process" designation, leading to its listing on the FedRAMP marketplace. This status was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), marking a successful bid for FedRAMP authorization. Synack has since worked with HHS and dozens of other federal agencies to test internal assets and improve their overall security postures. Today, Synack continues to leverage its premier on-demand security testing platform to deliver continuous penetration testing and vulnerability management, providing actionable results for its clients.
