Comprehensive exposure management for the cloud and
Validate Security Controls
To manage cloud security risk posture, security teams need visibility, control validation, and focused
mitigation for their cloud environments – just as they do for traditional IT. While each can be accomplished
with a specialized cloud-focused tool, best practices for threat exposure management require
a consolidated approach to cloud, on-prem, and hybrid environments.
Cloud Security Validation & Exposure Management
The Cymulate platform provides security validation and exposure management for both cloud and on-premise environments.
Scope cloud exposure risk with context to business and impact on operations
Identify assets and misconfigurations across clouds, on-prem and hybrid environments
Validate cloud controls, policies, and defensive capabilities
Prioritize mitigation activity based on multiple important business and technical factors
Mobilize cloud security teams with mitigation guidance based on risk reduction
Measure cloud cybersecurity posture and baseline exposure risk
Add Business Context
Organizations use Cymulate Exposure Analytics
to aggregate assets from cloud infrastructure
and third-party tools (cloud security posture
management, configuration management
databases, etc.) and assign each asset one or
more business contexts (business unit, programs,
sensitivity to downtime, or other factors).
Identify Assets and
Cymulate Attack Surface Management allows
companies to scan and identify assets and cloud
misconfigurations around the cloud attack surface.
Cymulate Exposure Analytics pulls
misconfigurations from CSPM, vulnerabilities from
vulnerability scanners, and network security
policies from the cloud infrastructure to creates
a risk-profiled asset inventory.
Validate Cloud Controls
With Cymulate Breach and Attack Simulation,
organizations test and validate controls and policies
against attack scenarios that target identity and
misconfiguration across the cloud infrastructure, VMs,
Companies use Cymulate Continuous Automated Red
Teaming to test and validate attack paths across cloud
infrastructure, cloud-to-ground, and ground-to-cloud.
Cymulate Exposure Analytics enables
organizations to correlate and prioritize cloud
weaknesses and IT gaps based on breach
feasibility, business context, and risk reduction.
With Cymulate Exposure Analytics, teams can plan
remediation based on risk reduction and business context
across all cloud, on-prem, and hybrid environments.
Measure and Baseline
Cymulate Exposure Analytics provides organizations
with a risk posture view of cloud environments. It also
drills down into risk and cyber resilience, enabling
teams to measure cybersecurity posture and baseline
exposure risk for both cloud deployments and the cloud
as part of the collective IT infrastructure.
Backed By the Industry
Cymulate facilitates data driven conversations at both the operations and business level. We can quantify the risk of doing business, justify compensating controls that reduce the risk levels and validate their effectiveness.

Cymulate for Cloud Solution FAQs
A lack of centralized visibility leads to difficulty in understanding security posture and proactively managing risks, as the data regarding exposure is spread across siloed solutions without proper correlation.
Using adversary emulations and validating the adaptation of defensive strategies, the Cymulate platform allows security teams to validate the efficacy of cloud security controls, including those related to containers and identity and access management.
Identity and access management’s flexibility and rapid changes may lead to over-privileged users and the potential for abuse and privilege escalation, including obfuscation techniques.
The Cymulate BAS Advanced Scenarios include new templates and resources to validate container and identity and access management controls specific to Kubernetes environments, ensuring better security for these assets.
The Cymulate platform capabilities include full kill-chain validation of cloud security controls with expanded privileged access and Kubernetes security validation, identifying misconfigurations, and mapping internal and external attack surfaces across cloud environments.
The Cymulate platform validates cloud controls’ resilience against real-world threats including the mitigating effects of existing compensating controls, the extent of breach feasibility, and factors in the business context for effective prioritization. CSPM focuses solely on identifying misconfigurations.
The Cymulate platform capabilities include internal and external Attack Surface Management (ASM) for discovering cloud assets, Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) for testing core controls, Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART) for validating resilience against network penetration, phishing and attack propagation methods, and Exposure Analytics for collecting data, correlating them with risk levels and business impact, and measuring cybersecurity resilience.
The Cymulate platform enables continuous threat exposure management by providing comprehensive solutions for scoping, discovery, prioritization, validation, and mobilization in cloud environments, supporting both technical and business requirements. Its Exposure Analytics product is unique in integrating the five CTEM steps in a single platform.
