In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

1.Cymulate is the only BAS platform to:
- Allow companies to replicate a full-scale APT attack on their network, challenging security control mechanisms through the entire cyber kill chain
- Offer a Pre-Reconnaissance vector allowing customers to run automated searches of potential threats on the darkweb. Searches that look for information such as employee credentials that could be used to gain access to sensitive areas of the network. Critically, any information found can then be used to run a bespoke and targeted simulation on the Platform.
- At the end of Q1, Cymulate will be the first BAS platform to leverage the security knowledge and expertise of its customer base with the introduction of the Community Threat Intelligence feature. This feature will leverage the security knowledge and expertise of the customer’s SOC, IR, pen-testers and red teams and play a critical role as a pertinent source of information for customers to understand threats and better target resources against anticipated attacks. Customers will evaluate their security posture with even more information at hand and also play a part in broadening the scope of Cymulate’s existing platform.

2. Placed first by Frost and Sullivan on its Innovation Index (II) in its report on the Global Breach and Attack Simulation Market for 2020 and second on its Growth Index (GI). Achieved 200% global revenue growth and 300% growth in North America. In a year devastated by the pandemic Cymulate attained 90% customer retention.,

3. Using an agentless system requires no additional hardware, implementation, or other associated costs. Other BAS solutions require a central server to manage agents and update them with new vulnerabilities, adding complexity and resources for in-house management. SANS Institute praised the simplicity of Cymulate’s deployment and endorsed Cymulate’s recent product enhancement which offers customers the ability to customize their own purple team-style assessments.

The platform’s high level of automation eliminates the need for highly skilled personnel and it provides the current security posture for the highly targeted email vector.

The platform provides out-of-the-box, expert and threat intelligence led risk assessments that are simple to use for all skill levels, and constantly updated. Helping security professionals to know and control their dynamic environment, Cymulate provides an open framework for ethical hackers to create and automate red, blue and purple team exercises and security assurance programs tailored to their unique environment and security policies.

Within minutes, the platform provides specific, actionable insights and data on where a company’s network is vulnerable, highlighting security gaps and mitigation procedures.

Robust reports can be automated and sent to technical personnel and/or executives creating a major cost-saving in resources and time when compared to traditional security testing.

Customers make informed decisions on the time to update or change a solution as they can test their own security products – daily, weekly, monthly – validating their capabilities, and accurately assessing the true value those systems provided.

Cymulate’s unique industry benchmarking feature allows customers to compare themselves against their peers, encouraging a higher level of security across an industry, as well as comfort that a company is meeting a standard threshold.
