SafeBreach Integration With Phantom Security Automation and Orchestration Platform Preemptively Discovers Future Attacks and Prevents Breaches
SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 26, 2016) - SafeBreach, a leading innovator of continuous security validation, today announced that it has integrated its virtual hacker platform with Phantom, a security automation and orchestration platform. The partnership gives enterprises that are inundated by advanced threats, the unprecedented ability to predict attacks using automated breach simulations and prevent data breaches with security automation and orchestration, turning the integrated platform into a futuristic tool for preemptive enterprise defense.
With the predict-and-prevent solution, security teams can now orchestrate simulated attacks against their networks, endpoints, cloud infrastructure and other assets using the most up-to-date threat intelligence and hacker breach methods from the SafeBreach Hacker's Playbook™. Once an analyst identifies a successful breach method within SafeBreach, the method is shared with the Phantom platform to preemptively make changes to the enterprise environment -- effectively remediating the weakness before it is exploited.
This solution is an example of how SafeBreach and Phantom are helping enterprises gain an important advantage against adversaries by allowing security analysts to anticipate and blunt future attacks. With the SafeBreach and Phantom integration, security operations centers (SOCs) and IT security personnel can uncover their weaknesses, efficiently reconfigure their environment and effectively prevent a data breach.
"To be truly effective at protecting networks and the digital assets they contain, today's security teams must be able to understand their unique risks and neutralize threats before an attack takes place," said Itzik Kotler, CTO and co-founder at SafeBreach. "Combining the predictive power of SafeBreach with the Phantom automation and orchestration platform creates a powerful solution that changes the wait-and-see dynamic of detect-and-respond into one of predict-and-prevent."
"With SafeBreach joining our growing community of technology partners, we've added another dimension to our automation and orchestration platform -- one that dramatically tightens the loop between discovery of an exposure and its ultimate resolution," said Phantom CTO Sourabh Satish. "Threat prediction and automated preemptive actions enable security teams to work smarter and faster to prevent the loss of critical data."
The SafeBreach and Phantom Integration Prevents Data Breaches Via:
- Proactive discovery of weaknesses that could lead to a data breach
- Validation of network and endpoint security controls efficacy
- Automation that closes discovered security weaknesses in seconds
The SafeBreach centralized management system incorporates the complete Hackers' Playbook of breach methodologies and manages a distributed network of breach simulators from a centralized location. SafeBreach simulators perform the role of the attacker, simulating traffic within the cyber kill chain. For example, to simulate breach methods for a Payment Card Industry (PCI) credit card exfiltration use case, breach methods are executed between simulators placed in the PCI segments and other segments, including the cloud and Internet.
SafeBreach is a pioneer in the emerging category of continuous security validation. The company's groundbreaking platform provides a "hacker's view" of an enterprise's security posture to proactively predict attacks, validate security controls and improve SOC analyst response. SafeBreach automatically executes breach methods with an extensive and growing Hacker's Playbook™ of research and real-world investigative data. The company is funded by Sequoia Capital, Deutsche Telekom Capital, Hewlett Packard Pathfinder and investor Shlomo Kramer. SafeBreach is a 2016 SINET16 Innovator and named a Finalist for both the RSA 2016 Innovation Sandbox and the "Most Innovative Startup" category for Dark Reading's inaugural Best of Black Hat Awards Program 2016.
