TEL AVIV, Israel (PRWEB) January 10, 2018
Cymulate, a technology startup that helps companies safeguard their business-critical assets with a unique breach and attack simulation platform, today announced the launch of a new product developed specifically for managed security service providers (MSSPs). By using a wide range of simulated attack vectors, the platform enables MSSPs to assess whether the organizations they serve are truly ready to handle cybersecurity threats effectively. Easy to deploy and cost effective, Cymulate platform simulates the myriad tactics and strategies that hackers use to attack network and endpoint security infrastructures.
MSSPs are responsible for assessing vulnerabilities, detecting security breaches, and preventing cyberattacks for their partner organizations. They monitor and manage a customer’s security systems 24/7 to protect network infrastructure, which lets organizations maintain a strong security posture while using fewer resources. MSSPs assess a customer’s security posture prior to providing services, then verify the security posture continuously to ensure that it meets the cybersecurity service level agreement (SLA). Since it requires only one software agent within an organization and low resource consumption, the Cymulate breach and attack simulation platform is simple for MSSPs to deploy and economical to maintain.
Cymulate technology further benefits MSSPs by supporting multi-tenancy (operating multiple independent instances of one or more applications in a shared environment), and by enriching the service catalog that an MSSP can provide to its new and existing customers. Perhaps most importantly in light of the booming demand for cybersecurity, Cymulate enables managed security service providers to continuously scale up their solutions and services.
GLESEC, a global cybersecurity partner headquartered in Princeton, New Jersey, has selected the Cymulate validation platform as a key aspect of its services. “We at GLESEC provide a highly differentiated solution to our clients with a breach-attack-simulation managed service based on Cymulate’s technology,” GLESEC founder and CEO Sergio Heker explains. “We are very pleased with the level of professionalism, response time and the core technology that Cymulate brings to the table.”
Cymulate empowers businesses to validate their cyber defenses more frequently, comprehensively, and responsively, so they know how safe they are and where they are vulnerable to cyberattacks at any given time. The SaaS-based, on-demand security assessment is available 24/7, using offensive and defensive actions to simulate multi-vector cyberattacks from an attacker’s perspective. The simulation platform shortens the usual testing cycle and speeds up time to remediation.
“Organizations often relax into a false sense of safety after they install security systems and strengthen their infrastructure. But hackers today are more sophisticated than ever, and they work around the clock,” Cymulate co-founder and CEO Eyal Wachsman says. “With MSSPs now adopting our platform, we’re gratified to know that many more companies will be able to measure their preparedness to handle cybersecurity threats effectively, and to protect their most mission-critical assets.”
Cymulate helps companies stay one step ahead of cyber attackers with a unique breach and attack simulation platform that empowers organizations with complex security solutions to safeguard their business-critical assets. By mimicking the myriad strategies hackers deploy, the system allows businesses to assess their true preparedness to handle cyber security threats effectively. An on-demand SaaS-based platform lets users run simulations 24/7 from anywhere, shorten the usual testing cycle, and speed up time to remediation. Cymulate was established in 2016 by former Israeli Defense Forces intelligence officers and leading cyber researchers with robust experience in offensive cyber solutions.
