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.

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.

Jorge Ruão, Head of Security Operations, Euronext,

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.

Avi Branch, IT Support Technician, Brinks

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.
