Security Control

The Challenge: Validating Your Security Controls

On average, organizations have between 30 to 40 security controls, and they apply changes to these controls on a weekly basis. According to a Ponemon survey, only 22% of respondents reported that they are highly confident that their organizations’ security controls are working as they are supposed to. 

Security controls fail due to having too many security products that are complex to manage and optimize. An added challenge is that security vendor software updates can inadvertently introduce new security gaps. 


The Solution

Cymulate automates security control validation and enables continuous security control optimization. Applying a purple teaming approach, out-of-the-box assessments make it simple for all skill levels to know, control, and optimize the efficacy of security controls. The attacks are comprehensive and customizable, as well as safe to launch in the production environment.  

Integrations with EDR, SIEM and SOAR systems correlate simulated attacks to events and alerts, to assess and optimize their detection capabilities. Results are mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK framework, helping to identify systematic weaknesses and security drift. Reports provide prescriptive remediation guidance to optimize an organization’s security posture in the face of the evolving threat landscape or after any sort of change—be it a software update, a configuration change, or a policy revision.
