Picus Security conducts security effectiveness tests in production environments because they provide better and more realistic responses to cyber-attacks compared to tests in static lab environments.
Identify existing security gaps or configuration weaknesses and use the remediation recommendations of Picus Security to quickly eliminate vulnerabilities.
Picus Security helps companies to sustainably increase the detection rate of cyber-attacks and thus maximize the effectiveness of the IT security technologies used.
By verifying the existing attack surface, IT security gaps can be closed faster.
Allow the security team to attack the security infrastructure in the corporate network with real threats before cyber criminals do.
The basis for this is a database provided and constantly updated by Picus Security with real "Cyber-Threat Samples" for the misuse of vulnerabilities and exploits, for malware attacks, for web application attacks as well as for data leakage.
For this purpose, cyber-attacks are simulated in a company network between 2 user-defined end points, which should be evaluated as real attacks by the respective defence instances at the gateway, at the end point as well as email GW. The route between the two defined end points is referred to as a so-called vector, e.g. Attacker > Client LAN, Attacker > Mail-GW, Attacker > EndPoint.
Which threat scenarios are simulated during the cyber-attacks carried out:
The simulation of these attacks provides the first results after only a few hours, which can be used to optimize the security level.
Regular security checks in production environments are constant requirements of guidelines such as ISO, BSI or PCI-DSS. With Picus these can be performed automatically and continuously.
By checking the IT security technologies used with Picus Security, undiscovered security gaps and faulty configurations can be detected and quickly eliminated before potential attackers can exploit them.
By using Picus Security, IT departments can automate certain assessment activities and thus optimize the use of often limited resources.
By using Picus Security, existing IT security technologies can be used more effectively. Furthermore, the holistic and manufacturer-neutral verification of security solutions enables a clear TCO cost analysis and identification of further targeted investments.
