The release of Runbooks for PlexTrac is going to change the way security teams do business.

FREMONT, CA: PlexTrac announces the launch of a new module called Runbooks for PlexTrac. The latest addition to the PlexTrac suite will add value to the company's existing modules and interest new users by empowering clients to effectively and efficiently plan, execute, and report their assessments. Runbooks can exponentially raise the productivity of cybersecurity teams—both red and blue. Runbooks for PlexTrac releases September 9.

"Purple Teaming has rightly gained popularity as a highly effective method for refining and testing defensive strategies that are informed by offensive security. While Purple Teaming methodologies have matured, our industry has lacked a platform to facilitate the planning, execution and debrief of these engagements. Runbooks was built from the ground up as a force-multiplier for Purple Team engagements, providing a one-stop, tooth-to-tail solution." says PlexTrac Vice President of Success Shawn Scott.

For years the industry has mourned about the critical shortage of qualified pen testers and assessors. With Runbooks, teams will have a mechanism for standardizing their methodologies to optimize their cybersecurity plan, no matter the experience of team members.  Runbooks offer team leaders an easy way to level up junior testers by drafting an engagement to the level of granularity they desire. Junior practitioners are guided as they need, and leaders get peace of mind that their enterprise is presenting a continuous service that meets their standards. Runbooks provisions real-time collaboration with time-stamped activity logs and the ability to capture screenshots and other evidence that contribute to effective debriefs and data-based reporting. Runbooks make running reports easy and customizable to an organization's custom.

PlexTrac Founder and CEO Dan DeCloss said, "Runbooks is a game changer for the industry, empowering teams to maintain a consistent and repeatable proactive assessment program. Runbooks in tandem with PlexTrac's powerful reporting engine equips teams to focus all energies on finding and fixing security holes in a collaborative, efcient and consistent approach."
