Vendors selected for the Cool Vendor report are recognized as having innovative, impactful and intriguing solutions that address emerging security challenges
SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 12, 2017) - SafeBreach, the leading provider of Breach and Attack Simulations, today announced that it has been named a Cool Vendor in the "Cool Vendors in Monitoring and Management of Threats to Applications and Data 2017"report by the world's leading research and advisory firm Gartner, Inc.
SafeBreach allows security teams to safely validate their security controls using breach and attack simulation technologies based on thousands of actual attacks. Unlike point-in-time approaches like penetration testing or red team engagements, SafeBreach validates security controls continuously using comprehensive hacker breach methods without risks to users, data or systems. Security teams can discover and mitigate security gaps across their network, in the cloud, or on their endpoints. SafeBreach correlates and analyzes the results of each breach scenario, provides visualization and detailed kill-chain analysis, and recommends proactive remediation steps to improve the security posture of the environment, and get the most out of existing security controls.
According to the Gartner report, "Assessing risks and finding vulnerabilities in production environments must be done without impacting the availability of the services or the user experience. Breach and attack simulation technologies can help leaders prepare for strikes against critical assets."
"We are honored to be named a Gartner Cool Vendor, and see this as further validation of our pioneering efforts in the Breach and Attack Simulation Technologies market," said Guy Bejerano, CEO & co-founder, SafeBreach. "Gartner has echoed the sentiments that we have heard from our many enterprise customers, including those in the global Fortune 100.
