Security Control Validation
Security is built upon a layered defense that needs continuous testing to assess if controls are working effectively. Cymulate Breach and Attack Simulation tests for detection and alerting on threats to confirm that controls are functioning correctly or if threats can evade them. Each vector is scored independently and aggregated for an overall risk score based on industry-standard frameworks.
Realistic Control Testing
Offensive testing based on threat actor techniques and tactics – simulated safely
Clear steps to remediate, close gaps and reduce exposure
Repeat assessments to validate mitigations and identify drift
Scheduled and automated testing provides the flexibility to test on demand or upon threat updates
Track and trend risk scores for continuous improvement. Benchmark against peers
Identify Exposure to Latest Active Threats
Continuous updates with new assessments for
current active and emerging threats.
Test the full stack of cyber controls vs. simulated full
kill-chain APT attacks – from attack delivery to
exploitation and post-exploitation.

"As Euronext’s cybersecurity team, we know that cybersecurity is always a work in progress. Cymulate allows us to fill a gap that for a long time was not closed directly, but only indirectly with other security controls. We recommend anyone looking for a breach and attack simulation platform turn to Cymulate."
"I believe that no matter what is the team size we have, we will always have a backlog of projects and tasks. Cymulate helps us to prioritize them and focus on issues that carry the most risk for the business, this has increased our effectiveness, we aren’t wasting valuable resources. Furthermore, I can present to our executives a return on security investments by showing them how each project has reduced our risk score."
"Many times, our CISO or senior members would come to security operations after reading about a new threat or APT group in the news, asking are we at risk? Cymulate enables us to answer quickly and confidently with the Immediate Threats module and attack simulations."

Breach and Attack Simulation FAQs
BAS is a process that allows businesses to simulate cyber-attacks on their systems and networks to identify weaknesses in their security posture. BAS helps organizations proactively identify and address security issues before an attack occurs. It also ensures they are better prepared to defend against real-world threats.
Cymulate BAS launches attack scenarios to discover security gaps and assess the layers of an organization’s security stack. It is cloud-based, providing continuous updates that enable customers to test new threats as they emerge. Deployment is quick and easy, with assessments launched directly from the cloud and some requiring a lightweight agent that serves as a proxy, minimizing installation and maintenance efforts. Cymulate BAS Scenarios includes control validation capabilities for email gateways, web gateways, web application firewalls, endpoint security, and data exfiltration. Additional capabilities feature immediate threat assessments, full kill-chain scenarios, and advanced scenarios—a customizable open-attack framework.
Cymulate BAS provides organizations with comprehensive security control validation. The modular solution addresses a wide variety of business and technical use cases. Security professionals leverage Cymulate’s insights to prioritize and reduce cyber risk, justify investments, provide proof of security resilience to management and boards, and for compliance and regulatory programs. Additionally, companies that utilize Cymulate BAS, CART (Continuous Automated Red Teaming), and ASM (Attack Surface Management) gain visibility into the full spectrum of their organizations’ exposure and breach feasibility—with one consolidated platform.
Traditional penetration testing services typically involve a one-time assessment of an organization’s security posture. Cymulate BAS provides ongoing, continuous assessments that simulate various real-world attack scenarios on specific security controls. This allows businesses to identify and remediate vulnerabilities in real-time rather than waiting for an annual or bi-annual assessment.
Every organization, regardless of size or industry, can benefit from a BAS solution. Cybersecurity threats are prevalent across all sectors, and implementing a BAS solution can help companies identify and address weaknesses in security controls and exploitable vulnerabilities in their security infrastructure before they are exploited by attackers. It is recommended to find a consolidated platform that covers many use cases and can scale and adapt to an organization’s evolving security needs as it progresses in its cyber maturity.
Vulnerability scans list vulnerabilities found in an organization’s environment and prioritize them based on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) rather than the vulnerability’s exploitability in the organization’s specific environment. Cymulate BAS continuously provides organizations the visibility on how well their security controls prevent vulnerabilities from being exploited. This allows companies to create a risk-reduction action plan based on prioritization. Cymulate’s simulated and emulated attacks complement severity with exploitability and account for the effectiveness of compensating security controls in an environment.
