“Made by usd HeroLab” – Sebastian Puttkammer about Tools, Quality and Efficiency

4. February 2020

Driven by the motivation to simplify the work for all team members, a team under the leadership of Sebastian Puttkammer, Managing Consultant at usd HeroLab, developed tools “made by usd HeroLab”. We asked what developments the recent years have brought and how they contribute to increasing the quality and efficiency of the usd HeroLab.

Sebastian, you have developed many of the HeroLab Tools yourself. How come?

Sebastian Puttkammer: In the past, we had to do a lot of research during a pentest and were often faced with the challenge that, for example, we had to manually retest a vulnerability for the same number of times that it had been found during a pentest. We already had self-written scripts that supported us, but they were very static and complex. So we started thinking about how to optimize the workflow for the whole team.
