[2][3]Penta Security offers web application security[4], database security[5][6][7][8], and single sign-on solutions. Most recently, Penta Security has revealed plans to develop and implement a blockchain-based[9] data market for automobile data and digital asset management[10].

Along with Imperva and F5 Networks, Penta Security’s web application firewall WAPPLES is recognized by Frost & Sullivan as one of the key players in the market. [11][12][13]

Penta Security Systems Corporation was later established in Texas, United States, in 2014. The three branches (Penta Security Systems, Inc., Penta Security Systems K.K and Penta Security Co.) are focused on providing IT security needs and requirements of South Korea to CIS, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, UAE, Ukraine, and United States. Penta Security joined the International Transport Forum's Corporate Partnership Board in 2019[19] to work on projects ranging from shared mobility to the decarbonization of transport with the ITF.[20]
