CONTINUOUS SECURITY VALIDATION

Continuous Security Validation is personalized offering for enterprises to validate enterprise deployed security products, applications and operating systems that are part of the enterprise stack. Continuous Security Validation is offered in your own private cloud that reflects your applications, your security products, policies, and configurations.

Streamline Your Cyber Risk Program

Cyber risk program in enterprises today include CISO, Line of Business, Risk and Compliance, and Security operations team to manage cyber risk and reduce the risk exposure.

Cyber risk includes the risk that are associated with the enterprise stack (applications and operating systems) and the security products used to defend your enterprise against threats.

Continuous Security Validation enables you to drive cyber risk program through continuous measurement, ongoing risk mitigation and by rationalizing your security investments.

An integral first part of cyber risk management is continuous visibility and measurement. Continuous security validation provides continuous visibility, monitoring and measurement of your enterprise security posture.

  • Continuous visibility of your enterprise security
  • Measure and monitor the effectiveness of your security defenses
  • 24x7 assessment of where you stand and identify the security gaps
  • Demonstrate Cyber Risk Program preparedness to management

The critical aspect of cyber risk program is response and action to mitigate risks. Continuous security validation provides the insights into the unmitigated risks associated with enterprise deployed security products and enterprise applications and operating systems.

  • Gain insights into the risks and take actions to mitigate risks
  • Automate response and improve internal SOC process using unmitigated threat context
  • Prioritize patch management by identifying vulnerable apps – based on threats exploiting applications and are not blocked by security defenses
  • Provide security product vendors relevant information for updating signatures and reduce risk exposure
  • Stage (Pre-Production) environment for validating the new release versions and signatures from security product vendors for enterprises

Security teams can use the data gathered by Continuous Security Validation to prove the value of their currently installed security products and initiatives or to identify security gaps that require additional budget allocation.

  • Take credit for what you have done by proving effectiveness of your cyber risk program
  • Rationalize the security investments you made to senior management and board of directors
  • Data and metrics to make line of business (LOB) accountable for application patch management
  • KPI's to showcase success metrics about the security technologies deployed and request additional budgets

How Do You Know Where You Stand?

Continuous Security Validation
  • Targeted threat capture impacting known and unknown vulnerabilities
  • Addresses whole enterprise stack – OS, Apps, Browsers, Security Products
  • Prioritize patch management by identifying critical vulnerabilities
  • Automates security product testing
  • Personalized option for validation of security products
  • Deployed like a branch office – same policies, same configurations, using your central management
  • 24x7 Real-time threats based on live exploits and malware active in wild
  • API provides insight to know where you stand and integrates with SIEM and automation tools
  • Live, active threats are run against security products in a virtualized environment
Vulnerability Management
  • Automates vulnerability scanning and management
  • Scans for known vulnerabilities
  • Focuses on standard Operating Systems and Application Vulnerabilities
Breach Simulation
  • Automates pen testing
  • Known, metered attacks are used for testing (could be weeks after discovery)
  • Instruments live production systems to showcase results
Threat Intelligence
  • Generic and commercial threat feeds focusing on volume of threats
  • Susceptible to false positives resulting in reduced efficacy
  • Doesn’t address target threats to your environment
