The bank robber Willie Sutton, when asked why he robbed banks, famously said, “Because that’s where the money is!” It’s no surprise then that financial organizations are a huge target for attackers. Security teams at financial companies face the challenge of securing customer and financial data, while dealing with the following:
SafeBreach offers the leading Breach and Attack Simulation platform that automatically, continuously and safely simulates attacks to validate security. Deployed across banks, institutional investors, insurance companies, asset managers, fintech and financial companies across the globe, security teams can validate their defenses against top financial attacks such as SWIFT, Carbanak, Citadel, SpyEye, CryptoLocker and more.
Segmentation policies and new security implementations can be validated, in addition to process. For example, how well security operations teams are able to respond to a potential breach. SafeBreach simulations can also be extended to validate the security of third-party organizations. For example, when investigating potential mergers, acquisitions or partners, security teams can ensure that no additional risks are being brought in to their environment. SafeBreach integrated reports and dashboards show security trends over time, providing the board and key executives with actual data on the performance of security investments.
Attackers have the upper hand, as evidenced by massive breaches, news headlines, consumer trust issues, and executive turnover. To change this trend, and put control back into the hands of defenders, financial organizations must simulate attacks, to validate the efficacy of their security defenses.
Safely simulating attacks in production allows financial defenders to:
“Although it may sound overly dramatic, there is a veritable epidemic of misconfigured, disconnected, turned off, and non-optimized security tools all over the organization.”
“Even when organizations are aware of gaps in the security posture, they don’t know where to start…”
"Assessing the efficacy of security products has frequently been a challenge for security teams. The SafeBreach platform delivers empirical data from the point-of-view of an attacker to accurately and continuously assess security."
"My view has always been that you need to monitor and detect BUT that‘s only half of it, prevention comes from thinking like a hacker and hiring individuals that think that way."
