•  How they save staff (i.e. Pen Tester’s) time to access test environment, freeing up more time to devote to threat emulation, vul scanning, etc.

•  That this technology can work around operating hours so daily business operations aren’t affected.

•  Allows Pen Test team to access the desired test environment remotely, and do any kind of assessment without requiring on-site access (critical for operations during COVID-19 - preserves social distancing compliance and all state stay-at-home order policies)

•  Allows on-demand scans of IT infrastructure at the command of senior leadership, independent of IT dept. (Useful when seeking to increase fidelity of QA or process improvement, and/or to evaluate IT dept. effectiveness)
