Introducing Blacklock's On-Demand Vulnerability Scanning Service, Redefining Your Cybersecurity Approach

Blacklock Aug. 3, 2023

We are thrilled to announce the launch of Blacklock's vulnerability scanning now available as a service! This exciting development offers you the power of our industry-leading penetration testing platform right at your fingertips, providing an innovative, agile approach to cybersecurity.

What's New?

Until now, our Blacklock platform was exclusively available as part of our manual penetration testing service, PTaaS. With our expansion into a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, you can now access our vulnerability scanning platform on a month-to-month subscription basis, making it even more flexible and cost-effective.

Streamlined Onboarding Process

Onboarding with our platform is a breeze. Simply specify your target endpoints, provide authentication details, and select your scan frequency. Once a scan is created, you'll be redirected to DocuSign to provide an electronic signature of authorization. Once signed, the platform automatically redirects you back to Blacklock, where you can initiate your first vulnerability scan at the click of a button.

Our Cutting-Edge Infrastructure

Our platform operates using a sophisticated containerized architecture hosted on AWS (Sydney). Scanning is initiated through the Blacklock scan engine, which incorporates a blend of commercial and open-source tools. We provide real-time reports of your business's cybersecurity status directly on the customer dashboard.


Blacklock integrates seamlessly with your DevOps software and development pipelines through the suite of our private APIs. This capability introduces static and dynamic scanning and helps you move from DevOps to DevSecOps. Whether you need on-demand, recurring, or scheduled scans, Blacklock offers unlimited vulnerability scanning across all plans.

Developer Learning

We are integrated with Secure Code Warrior, which allows your development team to learn more about the vulnerability, attack vectors and view remediation code in various programming languages from a single platform.

After the Scan

Following a scan, you will have full access to executive and developer reports, risk scores, and the ability to create JIRA tickets for each vulnerability from within your Blacklock account. Sharing findings with team members has never been easier with our Slack and MS Teams integration features.

All of these benefits work in concert to limit your attack surface and improve your overall cybersecurity posture.

With Blacklock, you gain real-time visibility of exposed vulnerabilities, allowing you faster remediation and the ability to shift left – identifying and remediating security issues when they're more accessible and affordable to fix.
