Prevent Breaches With Continuous Pentesting

In the rapidly evolving landscape of cybersecurity, the traditional methods of securing networks and systems are increasingly proving inadequate. The stakes are high: a single breach can cost a company millions of dollars, not to mention the potential damage to its reputation and customer trust. Enter NodeZero from—an autonomous continuous pentesting platform that promises to revolutionize how we defend against cyber threats.

In this blog post, we'll explore what NodeZero is, how it works, and why it is essential for preventing breaches and successful cyber attacks. Additionally, we'll highlight the role of Legion Cyberworks as a key reseller and service provider, enhancing the pentesting landscape with our expertise and the power of NodeZero.

What is NodeZero?

NodeZero is an advanced autonomous pentesting platform developed by It combines the principles of traditional penetration testing (pentesting) with the power of artificial intelligence and automation, and it is backed by a team of industry leaders, many of whom have hands-on experience as nation-state level red teamers in the US government and military branches of service.

Traditional pentesting involves security experts attempting to exploit vulnerabilities in a system, simulating the actions of a malicious hacker. However, these tests are typically conducted at intervals, such as quarterly or annually, leaving significant periods when new vulnerabilities could emerge unnoticed.

Moreover, traditional pentesting is limited by time and budget, and projects typically don’t last for more than 3-6 weeks due to those constraints.  This leaves a lot of time and opportunity for new vulnerabilities and weaknesses to emerge and causes significant risk for your organization.

NodeZero, in contrast, operates without interruption. It uses advanced algorithms and machine learning to identify, exploit, and report vulnerabilities in near real-time, providing a constant security assessment. This approach ensures that security measures are always up-to-date and capable of countering the latest threats.

How Does NodeZero Work?

  1. Automated Discovery: NodeZero can be run manually in an on-demand fashion, or it can be automated to continuously check your network, applications, and systems for vulnerabilities. It uses a combination of static and dynamic analysis to identify potential weaknesses.
  2. Intelligent Exploitation: Once vulnerabilities are identified, NodeZero attempts to exploit them, much like a human hacker would. This phase involves using sophisticated techniques to breach the system, providing a realistic assessment of the risk each vulnerability poses.
  3. High -Reporting: As vulnerabilities are discovered and exploited, NodeZero generates reports that help your team understand exactly where your weaknesses are, the impact of exploitation, and how to fix them.
  4. Continuous Learning: The AI component of NodeZero continuously learns from each test, and because NodeZero is running in thousands of environments, your organization can benefit from the learning taking place at a massive scale.  NodeZero then adapts to new threats, emerging exploits and vulnerabilities, and new TTPs, constantly improving its effectiveness over time.

Legion Cyberworks: Enhancing NodeZero with Expert Services

Legion Cyberworks plays a pivotal role in the cybersecurity ecosystem as a reseller and service provider of NodeZero. We were founded in 2016 with a mission to protect and defend our clients from cyber-threats.  To achieve our mission, we offer a range of services, including traditional pentesting and hybrid pentesting, which are powered by our highly skilled and experienced red team engineers, and the NodeZero platform. This hybrid approach leverages both human expertise and cutting-edge technology to provide a comprehensive security assessment.

    1. Traditional Pentesting Services: Legion Cyberworks conducts traditional pentests, offering periodic assessments to identify and mitigate vulnerabilities in systems and networks.  This is a staple for many of our clients who need to meet their annual requirements for PCI, HIPAA, SOC-2, and others.
    2. Hybrid Pentesting Services: By integrating the capabilities of our red team engineers with the NodeZero platform, Legion Cyberworks provides a dynamic and robust security testing service. This hybrid model ensures that both automated and human-led testing methodologies are employed, offering a more thorough and nuanced analysis of security postures.
    3. Continuous Pentesting as a Service: Some of our clients want the assurance that their environments are assessed on a consistent basis, and we provide that for them through our CPT service, which leverages the NodeZero platform to provide unlimited internal and external pentesting services at a consistent and predictable price throughout the year.

Why NodeZero is Essential

  1. Proactive Security: Traditional pentesting is reactive and infrequent, often identifying vulnerabilities only after they have been exploited and typically only done once each year. NodeZero is proactive, identifying and and helping clients mitigate threats before they can be exploited, and can be run anytime, as often as needed.
  2. Comprehensive Coverage: With continuous testing, every part of the network and system is regularly assessed. This comprehensive coverage ensures that no vulnerabilities are left unnoticed for long periods.  Traditional pentesting is typically not as broad due to time and budget constraints.
  3. Rapid Response: The fact that NodeZero is running in thousands of customer environments and enables the collection of pentest operational intelligence data, which is then used in combination with the continuous platform and exploit development at, we are able to rapidly develop testing algorithms for the latest “celebrity exploits''.  This rapid response reduces the window of opportunity for attackers.
  4. Cost-Effective: We help customers achieve verifiable results much more cost effectively when compared with traditional pentesting alone, and/or the use of vulnerability scanners.  What's more, by effectively leveraging NodeZero, preventing breaches and reducing the need for emergency incident responses, companies can save millions of dollars.
  5. Adaptability: The threat landscape is constantly changing, with new vulnerabilities and attack vectors emerging regularly. NodeZero adapts to these changes, ensuring that security measures remain effective against the latest threats.

Real-World Impact

The implementation of NodeZero has already shown impressive results in various industries. For example, a financial services company reported a 50% reduction in successful phishing attacks and a 30% decrease in critical vulnerabilities after adopting NodeZero . Another case involved a healthcare provider that significantly improved its compliance with regulatory standards, thereby avoiding costly fines and enhancing patient data protection.
