According to SC Magazine Technology Editor Peter Stephenson and SC Lab Manager Mike Stephenson, “We have liked this tool for a long time, and every year we expect to see it unseated by one of its competitors. It hasn’t happened yet. In our view, Impact Professional still is top of the heap and we designate it SC Lab Approved again this year.”

The SC Magazine Group Tests for vulnerability assessment evaluate and rate products in six distinct categories: Features, Ease of Use, Performance, Documentation, Support, and Value for Money. CORE IMPACT achieved a perfect five-star score in each category and reviewers were unable to report any weaknesses.

“With more than 2,500 exploits in its library and 1,400 customers worldwide, CORE IMPACT has kept pace with today’s rapidly evolving threat environment,” said Milan Shah, senior vice president of products and engineering for CORE Security. “This long-standing and ongoing honor from SC Magazine validates the direction of our evolution when it comes to thinking ahead of security threats.”
