Evaluate and rationalize security budgets by proving tool efficacy
and value to the organization

Justifying Cybersecurity Budget

Determining the right risk profile and corresponding cybersecurity budget is a challenging and ever-changing process. An organization’s inability to understand its tools’ efficacy often results in both over- and under-investment. Getting to the right investment can be a time-consuming process, which encompasses planning, execution, reporting, and assessment.

Cymulate plays a crucial role in justifying budgets for existing infrastructure and in establishing the need for new security controls.  With individual efficacy scores for each security control, security teams can see gaps, show redundancy vs defense in depth, and justify the need for new solutions with clear quantifiable metrics.
