Cyber security spend is at an all time high - yet it still only represents a one digit percentage of overall business spend. With so many companies (and their customers) suffering the consequences of data breach, spending security budget the right way is more critical than ever.
Until now, security leaders have had to rely on a little bit of data, combined with a whole lot of personal experience, guesstimation, or “gut feel” to best choose where to invest more resources, time, or money.
The only way to know where additional spend will truly reduce risk, is to actually establish a risk posture baseline, identify gaps, and then prioritize those gaps based on real business impact. Unfortunately, all too often that assessment is only made during the post-incident investigations performed after a real breach has occured.
Unlike vulnerability scanners, or penetration tests, which only give very rough approximations of overall security posture, SafeBreach provides real insight into true business risk.
By executing real attack methods, within real production environments, SafeBreach shows where security can stand up to attacks, and where it needs to be strengthened. Since this process actually automates hacker methods which moves simulated data into, across, and out of environments, there are no false positives, and no need for assumptions. Security teams know exactly where to focus resources, whether that’s time and effort to improve configuration, or whether it’s the purchase and implementation of a new product or service to fill a gap.
Rather than waiting until a breach has occured to investigate how attackers were able to execute their attacks, enterprises can now start by executing thousands of attacks. Flipping security upside down in this way means that all subsequent steps are based on real data, not assumptions, so security impact is maximized.
Teams no longer need to pore through findings data, to pinpoint where risk is highest. SafeBreach visualizes where attacks were successful, mapped across the kill chain - infiltration, lateral movement, and exfiltration. This quickly highlights where attackers can complete campaigns, and where defenders should focus their investments to stop those attacks.
SafeBreach also allows teams to prioritize investment based on what’s most achievable. Findings can easily be filtered by attack type, attacker sophistication, rate of data theft, attack phase, type of asset at risk, business impact and more. Defenders no longer have to make assumptions, and can now easily prove where investment has boosted security.
Breach and Attack Simulation provides real security data, to justify further security investment, and prove the value of existing security against attacks. With Breach and Attack Simulation working continuously, security teams get the data they need to improve security without guesswork, or reliance on vendor claims.
