Getting started: Creating Project and Project Groups

A project allows you and your team to perform an in-depth penetration testing of the landscape security in the scope of tasks. All projects, by default, have a built-in Wiki page where you can store all information.

In the project, you can view the progress of testing and readiness of tasks, follow team members' actions, and prepare reports in all stages of testing.
