Full Kill-Chain APT

Are you Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Ready?

Cymulate makes it simple to validate your security framework and for you to continuously challenge, assess, and optimize the effectiveness of your IT controls in defending against real-world cyberattacks.

Testing Controls Across the Full Kill Chain:

Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attacks attempt to bypass security controls across the cyber kill chain, from attack delivery to exploitation and post-exploitation, defending against an APT requires testing the effectiveness of multiple security controls within your arsenal. Since the efficacy of one control affects the exposure of the next control in the kill chain, ascertaining if your defenses work against a full-blown attack becomes a daunting proposition.

Cymulate’s Full Kill Chain APT Simulation Module solves the challenge of security effectiveness testing across the entire cyber kill chain. Instead of challenging each attack vector separately, organizations can now run a simulation of a full-scale APT attack with a click of a button, and gain a convenient, single-pane view of security gaps across their security stack.
Organizations can select among eleven APT attack templates that mimic the modus operandi of real-world APT attacks launched by well-known APT groups, such as FIN8, Cobalt Group, APT38, Silent Librarian and others.
APT stages are launched sequentially, from a simulated attack on the email or web gateway, followed by endpoint security. The module challenges the organization’s network policies, trying to move laterally, launch ransomware and exfiltrate predefined sets of data (PII, medical records, payment details), testing DLP controls.
The outcome of each stage of the APT attack is shown, e.g. Success, Failure or Partial Success.

Events and alerts triggered by the APT attack through security controls integrations.

An exposure score that takes into account potential asset impact, infection success rate, and probability of encounter.

Detection and mitigation guidelines that map to the MITRE ATT&CK framework for additional context.
Quantifiable security posture benchmarks provider for an immediate, objective understanding of where you are most vulnerable. Key to prioritize remediation efforts and resources. Technical reports provide an actionable mitigation guidance. Executive reports point at security drift and industry benchmarking for comparison.
