The Challenge

Flex Databases was looking for a manual and automated testing service to maintain compliance with HIPAA and GDPR. The company sought a solution that could provide information quickly and properly. Another requirement was to attain conformity certification to comply with GDPR and HIPAA. 

This led them to Astra Security, a modern, hassle-free pentesting solution for testing their assets. Ease of communication with the pentesting team, zero false positives, and Ci/CD integrations made Astra Security an immediate favorite with Flex Databases.
