Security Control

Assess and optimize your security controls​ simply,
quickly, and continuously​

Why Validate Security Controls

Manual configuration of security controls is a time-consuming and error-prone process that
must be performed regularly.​ Designed to minimize security risks, security controls
can still be misconfigured, which prevents them from functioning as intended and might result
in a false sense of security or an overload of false-negative alerts.​

The Cymulate Platform safely and efficiently assesses the efficacy of security controls against
threat activity across on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments.  This leads to more
targeted and effective tuning operations, true risk visibility, and fewer false-negative alerts.​

How do we prioritize which vulnerabilities and gaps to address first, and which can wait?​​

Validating Security

Cymulate attack simulations identify security control strengths
and gaps; and score their risk
factor based on their ability to
detect and stop 
those attacks.​ The Platform then produces detailed
technical reporting with remediation guidance for cybersecurity
and IT teams to take targeted, 
prioritized action to correct for
any gaps.​

Executive reporting provides documentation for business and
auditing stakeholders, to better 
justify resource allocation.​
