Their Story Conversation With Sean Martin And Cymulate’s Nir Loya

When you have the insights presented through the lens of the attacker and mapped to a CTEM program, you have an opportunity to drive better IT decisions to securely enable the business. The Cymulate Exposure Analytics solution has a quantifiable impact across all five of the CTEM program pillars and on a business’s ability to reduce risk by understanding, tracking, and improving its security posture with the following CTEM Alignment:

Scoping: Understand by organizational segment, the risk posture of business systems and security tools and its risk to immediate and emergent threats to define the highest impact programs needed to reduce or manage risk scores and tolerance.

Discovery: Correlated analysis from Cymulate and multi-vendor data that assesses on-premises and cloud attack surfaces, risky assets, attack paths, vulnerabilities, and business impact.

Prioritization: Vulnerability prioritization & remediation guidance based on multi-vendor aggregated data that is normalized, contextualized, and evaluated against breach feasibility.

Validation: Analyze exposure severity, security integrity, and effectiveness of remediation from security validation assessment data. Immediate threat and security control efficacy data can be used to answer questions such as “Are we at risk to this emergent threat?”, “Do we have the necessary capabilities to protect us when under attack?”.

Mobilization: Utilize Cymulate contextualized data to understand various response outcome options, and establish and track performance against baselines, benchmarks, and risk profiles.
