In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
Cymulate was established in June of 2016 by an elite team of former Israel Defense Forces (IDF) intelligence officers frustrated by the time and resource inefficiencies they experienced while conducting offensive cyber security operations in the field. The idea was to offer a unique cyber simulation platform that allows companies to test their security assumptions, identify possible security gaps and receive actionable insights in order to improve an organization’s security posture. It took only six months to move from launch to full live production. In the next six months, the company significantly broadened the platform with the development of three new solutions, including the first and only product with the capabilities to test the email security on-demand, receive detailed reports immediately and allow continuous improvement.
The cyber security market needed an offensive approach towards defensive tactics. It has been achieved through simulation of multi-vector cyber-attacks from an attacker’s perspective, revealing critical vulnerabilities before exploitation from real attackers. The old industry model (hiring human hackers) was too time consuming, inefficient, and incomplete to be effective. Cymulate has been able to simplify and streamline this aggressive approach to penetration testing through an automated, SaaS-based, plug & play platform which eliminated the use of hardware and complex solution architectures.
The ability to combine expertise in cyber simulation technology with extensive field experience to mimic the latest and most sophisticated cyber-attacks, has raised over $3.5M in funds so far.
