Cymulate’s Web Gateway vector helps you to test your HTTP/HTTPS outbound exposure to malicious or compromised websites.
Unsecure web browsing is frequently abused by hackers to exploit security weaknesses and compromise corporate environments. The World Wide Web is filled with malicious websites, and new ones are uploaded every day. Furthermore, legitimate websites developed in an unsecure manner are also being compromised and used to spread malware and other attacks. About 12% of recorded cyberattacks use a significant number of malware and malicious scripts that are delivered while browsing to infected websites or via browser add-ons.
Despite pervasive use of proxies, web filters, and all sorts of secure browsing solutions, browsing to malicious and compromised websites is a very common risk due to malicious online advertisements, fraudulent links, exploit kits and more. Since the majority of web malware infections takes place during legitimate browsing of infected mainstream websites or via browser add-ons, assessing the outbound exposure to malicious websites is crucial.
Cymulate’s Web Gateway cyber attack simulation vector is designed to evaluate your organization’s outbound exposure to malicious or compromised websites and current capabilities to analyze any inbound traffic. Using common HTTP/HTTPS protocols, it enables you to verify your organization’s exposure to an extensive and continuously growing database of malicious and compromised websites.
Immediate, actionable simulation results enable IT and security teams to identify security gaps, prioritize remediation and take corrective measures to reduce your organization’s attack surface.
