Security Control &
Threat Validation

Validate control effectiveness to determine the
true impact of exposures and emergent threats

Continuously Validate your Defenses​

Manual configuration and validation of security controls is a time-consuming and error-prone process that fails to provide consistent protection, especially against today’s evolving threat landscape, where new threats emerge daily.​

The Cymulate Platform safely and continuously assesses the efficacy of security controls against threat activity across on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments. New assessments are added daily to proactively test against the latest emergent threats, so organizations can immediately evaluate their defenses. This leads to targeted and effective tuning of operations, true risk visibility, and fewer false-negative alerts.​

Exposure Management: The Role of Validation​

Cymulate automates offensive security testing to validate controls and
threats with the market-leading breach and attack simulation (BAS) and
automated red teaming.​ Cymulate evaluates the likelihood of attack
success by testing controls, understanding the effectiveness of
compensating controls, and measuring response capabilities. ​By
correlating this analysis with vulnerabilities and other potential exposure
risks, organizations can prioritize patching and remediation based on
risk as part of a larger continuous threat exposure management (CTEM) program.​

“Integrate BAS in a cybersecurity validation roadmap, as
part of a continuous threat exposure management (CTEM)
program. Don’t run BAS in isolation.”
– Gartner: Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2023
