Safe and automated red teaming allows for more testing, more
often with existing staff
Automated Testing to Validate Attack Paths for Repeatable & Scalable Assessments
Simulate an attacker that has gained an initial foothold and moves
laterally in search of any additional assets that can be compromised
Validate security controls and response against real-world cyber
attacks to stress test defenses and identify gaps
Create and run internal phishing campaigns to measure employee
resilience against phishing attacks
Benefits of Continuous Automated Red Teaming
Scheduled & automated assessments for testing on demand & reducing repetitive, labor-intensive manual tasks
The ability to create, modify & run chained or atomic attack campaigns
Repeat assessments to validate mitigations & identify drift
Clear steps to remediate, close gaps & reduce exposure
Network Pen Testing
- Safely apply threat tactics and techniques to uncover
infrastructure misconfigurations and security weaknesses
- Validate attack paths against security controls
- Segregate network-level defenses from endpoint-level
defenses for a more accurate analysis of both layers of controls
- Identify changes in IT infrastructure and network
misconfigurations that provide new avenues for lateral

The Cymulate Exposure Management & Security Validation Platform
Cymulate Continuous Automated Red Teaming is available both as a standalone SaaS offering and as an
integrated offering within the Cymulate Exposure Management and Security Validation Platform.
"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."

Continuous Automated Red Teaming FAQs
CART adds automation and continuous testing to traditional red team exercises to validate entire attack paths from infiltration to actions on objectives. This proactive approach to security testing involves regularly automating and simulating real-world attacks on an organization’s systems and applications. The simulations attempt to breach an organization by autonomously deploying attack techniques that penetrate and gain an initial foothold within the network.
Cymulate CART is cloud-based and can be accessed through a web browser, only needing one agent per environment, eliminating the necessity for any on-premises installation. Cymulate CART simulates attacks that can propagate within the network in search of critical information or assets, providing for network penetration testing. Cymulate CART can test any technique on any stage of the kill-chain independently.
BAS and CART are two different approaches to security testing. BAS tests the effectiveness of security controls against known attack vectors, while CART focuses on if and how an adversary can breach an organization’s defenses by identifying and addressing vulnerabilities. BAS testing is typically limited to specific areas of the network or specific applications, and CART testing covers the entire attack surface of an organization’s systems and applications. Organizations that combine these two approaches can gain a more comprehensive view of their security posture.
Cymulate CART provides reusable templates for baselining and ongoing testing, as well as land-and-pivot lateral movement, for more accurate and detailed results. Security teams can also create customized attacks, from infiltration to actions on objectives. Additionally, the phishing assessment capability provides all the resources to create an internal phishing campaign and measure employee resilience against phishing attacks. With Cymulate CART, security teams can test more environments, more often, without increasing their staff.
Traditional penetration testing services typically involve a one-time assessment of an organization’s security posture. Cymulate CART provides ongoing, continuous, and automated assessments that validate entire attack paths from infiltration to actions on objectives. This allows businesses to identify and remediate vulnerabilities in real-time rather than waiting for an annual or bi-annual assessment.
With Cymulate CART, red teams utilize automation and highly customizable simulations to increase their operational efficiency and optimize their adversarial activities in a production-safe environment. Cymulate CART also provides blue teams a framework to improve adversarial skills on the job, increase collaboration, and improve time to mitigation. In the face of budget cuts and the shortage of security professionals, Cymulate CART enables security teams to maximize their impact.
