The world has not stood by flat-footed as cyberthreats increased against our interests. Even after decades of cybersecurity investment and innovation, however, our security controls are failing to protect us against bad actors. Verizon estimates that 82 percent of successful enterprise breaches should have been stopped by existing security controls, but weren’t. Why is that? Because security controls fail invisibly. If they’re not working, you have no idea. Organizations have traditionally invested in manual penetration testing and red teams to discover cybersecurity failures. But such methods are sporadic, disruptive, and profoundly inadequate.
The world needs a consistent, trusted, and safe way to test cybersecurity controls at scale and in production. Without it, security controls will continue to fail. With it, security control failures become visible and can be corrected, closing the gap to adversaries and making the world safe for compute. That’s exactly what AttackIQ, the leading independent vendor in the emerging market of breach and attack simulation (BAS), delivers to security teams.
