Balbix provides 100x more accurate visibility into cybersecurity vulnerabilities and risks than legacy solutions.

Unlike our competitors, Balbix uniquely prioritizes these vulnerabilities based on business risk, thereby enabling security teams to focus on remediation actions that really have an impact as opposed to busy work.

Unlike legacy tools which typically require long-running vulnerability scans to be manually triggered, Balbix performs continuous monitoring and analysis across the attack surface.

Brief Overview

Balbix BreachControl is the world’s first platform to leverage specialized AI to automatically analyze enterprise networks and provide real-time visibility of breach risk. The system combines information about vulnerabilities, threats, asset exposure, business criticality and security controls to prioritize security issues based on risk. These prioritized risk insights are fed into workflows and dispatched as tickets with SLAs to the various risk owners.

Balbix also continuously monitors the enterprise for security fixes as they are implemented and can scorecard different risk owners based on their vulnerability management practices, and the enterprise against other organizations.

CISOs and CIOs using Balbix have transformed their organization’s cybersecurity posture, reducing cyber risk by 95% or more, while making security teams 10 times more efficient. Balbix counts many global 1000 companies among its rapidly growing customer base and was named a “Cool Vendor” by Gartner in 2018.
