Security is never static. New cyber-attacks are constantly emerging and configurations are rampant. Enterprise IT staff face a constant barrage of threats, both intentional and accidental. But simply buying and plugging in a new security device doesn’t make problems magically disappear. The reality is, IT security is a process, not a destination—maintaining optimum security takes a constant investment in time and resources to get the most out of the technology and deployed products.

The advancements in technology and its usage have connected people and businesses but also brought vulnerabilities which can be exploited and are being exploited. Cybersecurity breaches have become commonplace, which are alarming across organizations. This along with rapid digitization and Regulatory norms is driving the need for Cyber Security.  As our reliance on data and interconnectivity swells, developing strong resilience to withstand cyberattacks has never been more important.

According to recent reports, there were more than 3 lakh Cyber-attacks in India. Even 50% of companies were breached because their cybersecurity solution was not working as expected. The only way to know is to test your own defenses before hackers can.

ThreatSimulator, a breach and attack simulation (BAS) addresses the need for continuous, comprehensive & consistent assessment (or verification) to check the effectiveness of the security posture, obtain actionable remediation steps and defend against new ways of cyber-attacks and exploits. Threat Simulator automatically scans your perimeter defenses, web application firewall (WAF), and web policy engines to identify any vulnerabilities

ThreatSimulator platform is built on 20+ years of leadership in network security testing, having served & continues to serve the security testing needs for industry majors Security & Networking OEMs. The ongoing research of our Application and Threat Intelligence (ATI) team ensures regular updates so that customers have access to the latest breach scenarios and threat simulations. The ATI Service won the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Award in the Threat Detection, Intelligence and Response category. ThreatSimulator is a pure software solution, it’s simplifies deployment and cost-effectiveness with auto-scaling design and web-based management. An intuitive dashboard shows you everything at a glance — including security gaps, audit statuses, and security measurements over time — while a user-friendly interface minimizes errors and saves valuable time.
