AttackForge Launches ‘Action Pack’ – a World 1st for Pentest Management Tools

Global leader in Pentest Management solutions introduces affordable & on-demand, dedicated tenant software-as-a-service platform for consultancies and medium-sized enterprises.

AttackForge Core Action Pack – Deployment Process

MELBOURNE, Australia, July 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AttackForge®, a global leader in Pentest Management solutions, has announced today AttackForge Core: Action Pack – the worlds’ first on-demand, dedicated tenant pentest management platform.

“With the launch of AttackForge Core: Action Pack, any cyber security team can deploy their own dedicated tenant in under 2 minutes, on infrastructure hosted in their preferred Microsoft Azure region. This means anybody can now provide a sophisticated Pentest-as-a-Service (PTaaS) to their customers in a matter of minutes,” said Stas Filshtinskiy, Co-Founder of AttackForge.

AttackForge Core Action Pack is aimed at making pentest management solutions more affordable and easier to access, helping security teams get more done with less time and effort.

“Traditionally, gaining access to such tools would require a significant investment in time and money, resulting in vendor lock-in contracts costing tens of thousands of dollars. We’re turning that on its head. Action Pack is only $300 per month and is pay as you go – placing it within reach for any cyber security team, boutique consultancy or freelancer,” said Fil Filiposki, Co-Founder at AttackForge.

AttackForge Core was introduced in 2021 as a solution to address the growing demand for pentest management tools by small-to-medium sized organisations. It benefits from gaining access to many workflows already used by enterprise security teams in its big brother – AttackForge Enterprise.

“Action Pack includes all the capabilities, methodologies and workflows to run a successful Pentest-as-a-Service or to manage your own penetration testing program. We’ve built it from years of experience working with some of the most mature security teams in Fortune 500 and across various industry sectors. We’ve made it possible to enhance your tenant as your requirements change, with in-app upgrades for more flexibility and muscle when you need it,” said Fil Filiposki.

At the time of release, AttackForge Core Action Pack is the only pentest management tool currently available on the market which can be deployed on-demand in a dedicated tenant.

“Our team has pushed the envelope forward when it comes to innovation for pentest management tools. A solution like Action Pack seemed out of reach only few years ago, however today we are proud to say it is a reality and it can be done with the right team, product and pricing strategy,” said Stas Filshtinskiy.

Action Pack can be deployed starting today from https://buy.attackforge.io.

Trelica Named ‘Leader’ and ‘Outperformer’ in GigaOm’s SaaS Management Platforms Radar Report

GigaOm Radar for SaaS Management Platforms

CAMBRIDGE, England, July 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trelica has been identified as a SaaS Management ‘outperformer’ in GigaOm’s Radar Report on SaaS Management Platform providers. The report: ‘Key Criteria for Evaluating SaaS Management Platforms,’ positions Trelica as one of three industry ‘leaders’ and one of just two industry ‘outperformers’.

In the report, outperformers are defined as companies that provide “end-to-end platforms that offer features for both SaaSFinOps and SaaSOps”. By supporting both financial optimization for SaaS portfolios (SaaSFinOps), and tools for automating SaaS management and user onboarding (SaaSOps), outperformers provide the widest possible range of SaaS management benefits available in the market.

Based on its rare ability to provide end-to-end SaaS management coverage, Trelica “scores highly across all key criteria and evaluation metrics,” according to the report.

About the report

The GigaOm Radar report highlights key Software-as-a-Service Management Platform vendors, equipping IT decision-makers with the information they need to select the best fit for their business and use case requirements. Specifically, the report locates companies on two key axes: ‘maturity’ and ‘innovation’ based on evaluated criteria such as feature-richness, scalability, performance and total cost of ownership. Industry leaders are positioned in the innermost, dark gray circle of the GigaOm ‘Radar’.

Why was Trelica identified a market outperformer?

The vendor insights section of the GigaOm report explains why Trelica has been named an ‘outperformer’, listing the company’s key strengths vs. other providers who were evaluated. These include “end-to-end SMP features with a wide range of integrations, a content rich application catalog, full visibility of spend, an innovative contract renewal module, and a user-friendly lifecycle management workflow solution.”

Trelica viewpoint: why ‘end-to-end’ SaaS Management is the way to go

Many SaaS Management solutions focus only on Spend Management, which looks for opportunities for cost-reduction across the app portfolio. Others focus on Operations Management, which automates employee onboarding, deprovisioning of unused licenses and other time-consuming processes.

With Trelica, organizations can address these two key requirements with a single provider, and a single system – providing the widest range of benefits and delivering more ROI.

Helping IT take a strategic role in SaaS Management

Another key benefit of the end-to-end approach that earned Trelica its outperformer status is a more strategic role for the IT team in SaaS Management. This is based on the ability to involve lines of business who source and pay for apps, and to equip them with tools for optimizing SaaS usage and budgets, while also allowing IT to maintain overall visibility and control of the entire SaaS estate.

Validation for Trelica’s end-to-end SaaS approach

Trelica’s holistic, end-to-end SaaS management capabilities help organizations to maximize ROI based on tactical spend optimization, and longer-term savings based on efficient, standardized SaaS operations.

Iain McGhee, Co-Founder of Trelica, says, “there will always be a business need to control IT spend but the bigger picture in this space – and the very reason we created Trelica – is to help IT teams seize the opportunity to take an ever more strategic role with SaaS management.”

Wood Mackenzie and Ball Corporation introduce new tool that tracks global LNG liquefaction train statuses in near real-time

LONDON/HOUSTON/WESTMINSTER, Colo., July 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wood Mackenzie, Inc. a Verisk business (Nasdaq: VRSK), and Ball Corporation (NYSE: BALL) today announced the launch of Global LNG Liquefaction Monitoring – the first product arising from their strategic agreement to accelerate the development of advanced analytics for energy markets.

The Global LNG Liquefaction Monitoring product provides near real-time market intelligence on liquefaction train statuses. The tool is a powerful combination of Ball’s satellite expertise and remote sensing data analytics capabilities and Wood Mackenzie’s proprietary ground-based monitoring of U.S. liquefaction sites.

Lucas Schmitt, Principal Analyst – Global LNG Liquefaction Monitoring for Wood Mackenzie said: “The number of liquefaction plant outages has increased significantly in recent years – and these events impact market prices. With LNG cargoes trading at record high prices, having access to timely and accurate data is critical.”

Wood Mackenzie’s proprietary dataset alerts users to train outages and restarts before other indicators, such as vessel tracking. For example, Wood Mackenzie’s algorithms detected maintenance on two Qatari trains in early February 2022 with a 7-day lead time before any other indicators.

“Our alerts flag disruptions so customers can react quickly and identify potential trading opportunities. Additionally, the high granularity of the data allows clients to understand train-level dynamics to derive valuable insight on companies involved in these assets.” Schmitt added.

Kendall Ackerman, director of Ball’s commercial-facing satellite analytics business, commented: “Through our collaboration with Wood Mackenzie, we are identifying new and exciting applications for our proprietary satellite analytics. The opportunity to provide the industry with time-critical data that will help drive decisions in the global LNG markets is ground-breaking.”

Global restaurant brand signs franchise agreement with Manila-based Bistro Americano Corp. to bring the Fogo experience to Asia for the first time

BarraShopping

Fogo de Chão recently opened the doors to its newest location at Rio de Janeiro’s BarraShopping, one of the largest retail and dining destinations in South America. https://fogodechao.com/newsroom

DALLAS, July 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fogo de Chão, the internationally-renowned restaurant from Brazil that allows guests to make discoveries at every turn, today announced its plans to enter Asia for the first time with the signing of a franchise development agreement that will bring Fogo’s award-winning dining experience to the Philippines. In partnership with Bistro Americano Corp., a division of the leading Manila-based multi-brand restaurant operator The Bistro Group, the deal will bring five Fogo de Chão locations to the country over the next six years. The agreement reflects the next step in Fogo’s growth plans as the Company accelerates expansion in domestic and international markets. The Bistro Group joins Fogo’s existing international franchise partners in Mexico and the Middle East.

With 66 locations worldwide and growing, Fogo earlier in 2022 announced a 15 percent planned annual growth rate through company-owned restaurants, with an additional international capital light franchise development strategy. With the goal to bring the culinary art of churrasco to guests worldwide, the Company has announced 8-10 company-owned and 1-2 international franchise restaurant openings for 2022, supported by a strong pipeline of new restaurant development to meet demand in new and existing markets. Fogo’s newest openings include restaurants in Rio Barra, Brazil, El Segundo, Calif., Coral Gables, Fla. and Monterrey, Mexico, with planned openings in Elmhurst, N.Y., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Paramus, N.J. and others expected later this year.

“We are honored to partner with Bill and his accomplished team at The Bistro Group, who have successfully developed premium brands throughout the Philippines for the past 25 years,” said Barry McGowan, Chief Executive Officer of Fogo de Chão. “Our entrance into Asia marks a monumental step in our brand’s strategic growth plan. At Fogo, we celebrate culinary discoveries and are proud to introduce guests to the art of churrasco at each of our restaurants around the world.”

For over 25 years, the experienced team at The Bistro Group has built a track record of excellence introducing and operating iconic restaurant brands within the Philippines. As the leading premium dining retailer in the region, the Company currently operates 111 restaurants across a 21-brand portfolio, which includes international names like Texas Roadhouse, TGI Fridays, Italianni’s and Buffalo Wild Wings.

El Segundo

In May of 2022 Fogo opened its newest U.S. location and third Los Angeles-area restaurant in El Segundo, Calif. https://fogodechao.com/newsroom

“We are continually looking for opportunities to bring distinctive and innovative hospitality brands to our guests within the Philippines, and we see incredible potential in Fogo de Chão,” said Bill Stelton, Chairman and CEO of The Bistro Group. “For over 40 years Fogo has set the standard in upscale, experiential dining by bringing authentic flavors of churrasco globally, and for that reason, we’re proud to represent Fogo as it makes its Asia debut.”

Founded in Southern Brazil in 1979, Fogo de Chão is a nearly 45-year-old brand known for its dining experience of discovery and showcasing the culinary art of churrasco where guests can watch as gaucho chefs butcher, hand-carve and grill high-quality cuts of protein over an open flame.
