PRESS RELEASE: Cognition Launches Insight Vulnerability Management as a Service Powered by Industry Leading WhiteHat Sentinel

London, UK – April 27, 2015 – Cognition (, the specialist cyber security integrator today announced the release of its ‘Insight’ service, bringing Vulnerability Management as a Service to the UK market. With WhiteHat Security’s Sentinel application security platform at its core, Cognition’s fully managed Insight service provides continuous coverage for web application vulnerabilities from discovery and investigation through to complete remediation.

With the release of this new service, Cognition is addressing customers’ over-reliance on the sporadic penetration test with its point-in-time nature and overly technical output. Insight provides continuous detection 24/7 with real-time analysis, giving customers the situational awareness they need to reduce operational risk and maintain regulatory compliance.

Insight provides complete visibility and control of application vulnerabilities by bringing together the industry’s best scanning technology, expert analysis and hands-on remediation – all as a managed service. Cognition translates all aspects of the solution into relevant customer intelligence, freeing application teams to focus on their service delivery objectives.

“Most organisations are blind to the weak spots in their applications and have neither the technology nor the expertise to properly secure them. Insight changes this by providing end-to-end patch management of these vulnerabilities before they can be exploited. Simply put, we find the holes and we fix them,” said Carl Gottlieb, Technical Director at Cognition. “At the very core of our Insight service is WhiteHat’s Sentinel platform, providing the industry’s leading Application Security Testing and we’re immensely proud to be bringing its continuous assessment functionality to our managed service customers.”

Andrew Lawton, VP sales, EMEA at WhiteHat Security said: “The web can be a dangerous place and WhiteHat Sentinel’s integration into Cognition’s Insight service perfectly complements our mission – to secure the web. It also enhances Cognition’s security expertise by helping to deliver an effective ‘vulnerability management service in a box’ – a fully managed service which takes away the pain and workload required by internal IT teams to continually test for and fix web application vulnerabilities. With website hacking on the rise and a security skills shortage, IT teams need all the help they can get – and a service like Insight could prove invaluable to many.”
