USE CASE # 1 / VALIDATE SECURITY POSTURE AND CONTROLS

CHALLENGE

Can you really answer this question: How safe are you right now? In 2016, organizations worldwide invested over 80 billion dollars in security solutions to protect their data, block malware and safeguard critical business processes and assets. Yet, most companies are still vulnerable in the face of the latest cyber-attacks and breaches. Cyber-security testing is supposed to provide the solution. However, the current industry model is time consuming, inefficient, and inadequate.

USE CASE # 2 / DEFENDING AGAINST MALICIOUS E-MAILS

CHALLENGE

Organizations invest billions of dollars into security solutions every year and they may fall into a false sense of safety. It is essential for them not only to understand where they should be placing their investments, and, even more so, if their existing solutions are really protecting them. Recent world-wide threats justify the need for continuous and on-demand testing, especially within the most common attack vector: Email. 75% of cyber-attacks originate from malicious Emails in a growing range of variations. CISOs must have the ability to assess their overall security posture and predict evolving threats at all times

SOLUTION

Cymulate E-Mail challenges basic security assumptions, using leading-edge research that embodies the latest breach attempts creative thinking, to enable malicious files to penetrate the organization through e-mails. By generating immediate results, organization can easily and fully mitigate all the security flaws discovered.

BENEFITS

  • Test your e-mail security controls with vast and diverse e-mail attacks
  • Mitigate attacks before they happen
  • Plug & Play, Simulation as a Solution. No hardware required
  • Immediate results: 24/7/365
  • Fully Automated – Continuous testing and Improvement

USE CASE # 3 / COMPLIANCE ENABLER

CHALLENGE

Are you sure that you are complying with the myriad standards and regulations relating to your business?

Organizations are under pressure to comply with a growing body of mandatory standards and regulations regarding privacy and information security. Non-compliance can result in hefty fines, loss of revenue, brand damage, and even law suits. Because compliance is capital-, time- and manpower-intensive, it places a strain on corporate resources. To prepare for periodic compliance audits, the organization enlists 3rd-party vendors and consultants. These practices are unwieldy, inefficient, and far from foolproof.

SOLUTION

The Cymulate platform boosts compliance with the myriad standards and regulations, including GDPR, PCI, HIPPA, and other federal, national and industry laws dealing with security and information privacy.

With its game-changing and advanced Security as a Service platform, Cymulate enables organizations to perform their own ongoing assessments of the attack vectors that relate to compliance requirements by:

  • Exposing vulnerabilities in the security framework and assessing the current security barriers and controls utilized to protect the organization’s infrastructure and applications from external and internal attacks.
  • Verifying that Data Leak Prevention (DLP) solutions are actually capable of preventing the exfiltration of sensitive data, including Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and financial information.
  • Raising the awareness of employees regarding potential cyberattacks and their role in preventing them.

With the Cymulate platform, organizations can test their readiness to fend off different attack vectors. Testing can be performed simply anywhere and anytime, and will provide actionable results immediately. By performing the assessment prior to audits, organizations will have ample time to implement controls to be ready to pass.

BENEFITS

  • Plug & Play, Simulation as a Solution. No hardware required
  • Fully Automated – Continuous testing and improvement
  • Immediate results: 24/7/365
  • Mitigate exposures before a compliance audit or certification renewal spots your deficiencies

USE CASE # 4 / REVEALING INTERNAL NETWORK VULNERABILITY GAPS

CHALLENGE

Windows’ Domain Network configuration and its maintenance is complex and consumes considerable resources. It often creates security flaws. Hackers identify and exploit these flaws to move laterally around workstations, servers, and databases, compromising them and extracting critical assets.

SOLUTION

Cymulate Hopper Lateral Movement is a highly intelligent, efficient, and robust algorithm that simulates a litany of possible lateral movements inside that can be performed by an experienced hacker who has already gained a foothold inside the organization. Cymulate’s Hopper Assessment displays the paths of vulnerability that a hacker could have used, enabling the organization to close all the vulnerability gaps before disaster strikes.

BENEFITS

  • super-sophisticated Lateral Movement capability
  • Mitigate attacks before they happen
  • Test the efficacy of your existing security products. Maximize you ROI
  • Plug & Play, Simulation as a Solution. No hardware required
  • Immediate results: 24/7/365

USE CASE # 5 / CHOOSE THE RIGHT SECURITY SOLUTION

CHALLENGE

Are you investing efficiently in your security?  Are you performing the best security-product purchases?

In 2016, organizations worldwide invested over 80 billion dollars in security solutions to protect their critical assets from cyber-attack. Yet, everybody gets breached!  Organizations fortify themselves through new and advanced security solutions, but they have no idea how they would fare in an actual cyber-attack.

SOLUTION

Cymulate’s diverse Security Assessment Modules enable organizations to verify if their solutions actually block cyber-attacks. Real-time, safe and comprehensive assessments show organizations where to invest – to obtain and properly implement effective solutions by pinpointing flaws and gaps.

Cymulate has already shown leading organizations – who have already implemented the most sophisticated security solutions – where they are still vulnerable to attack. Happens every time. With Cymulate’s actionable insights they are able to deploy the most effective weapons, configure them properly, and execute efficient mitigation procedures.

USE CASE # 6 / DEFENDING AGAINST MALICIOUS WEB SITES

CHALLENGE

As organizations invest more in security solutions, they may fall into a false sense of safety. Despite heavy investment, every organization is still subject to breach. It is vital that they not only understand where they need to target their investment for maximum effect, but whether their current solutions are even protecting them and to what degree. Only through continuous testing of security assumptions, can they obtain exact, accurate guidance on where to invest, what products to purchase, and how to configure them. The onslaught of recent threats justifies continuous and on-demand testing, especially of the very vulnerable browsing attack vector that constitutes 15% of reported cyber-attacks. With this attack vendor evolving daily, CISOs must be able to assess dynamic threats to browsing very, very frequently.

SOLUTION

Cymulate’s Browsing Assessment challenges the organization’s basic assumptions:

  • That employees are browsing to legitimate and secure websites and not compromising the organization’s security with their internet activities.
  • That employees are prevented from accessing malicious websites or downloading ransomware and other malware, even inadvertently.

By using Cymulate to generate immediate results at any time, the organization can quickly and fully mitigate browsing-related security flaws and block browsing to compromised websites and possible download of malicious content.

BENEFITS

  • Test browsing controls for security flaws with a wide-scale, diverse browsing agent
  • Mitigate attacks before they happen
  • Get a comprehensive assessment of your current safeguards
  • Plug & Play, Simulation as a Solution. No hardware required.
  • Immediate results: 24/7/365
