Introducing Breach Defense: Enterprise SecOps Tools

February 24, 2020 by Mike Hodge

Enterprise networks are under constant threat. Between misconfigurations, vendor updates, alert fatigue, and a security skills shortage, experiencing a breach is no longer a question of “if” — it’s a question of “when.”

Security is never static. Your network might be airtight one day, and critically vulnerable the next. But with so much in flux, proving the performance of your security operations is extremely difficult. Even popular validation methods like penetration testing and internal red teams don't tell the whole story — they merely provide a single data point from a single point in time.

So what's a savvy SecOps team to do? Cross your fingers and hope for the best? That's not good enough. You need a better way.

That's why I'm so excited to introduce our new family of enterprise security tools: Breach Defense. Consisting of two tools, Threat Simulator and ThreatARMOR, Breach Defense enables you to continuously validate your security tools against the latest threats, reduce risk by discovering gaps before attackers can exploit them, and dramatically curtail alert fatigue by blocking attackers at the source.

But what does that really mean? Here's a quick overview:

Threat Simulator: breach and attack simulation

Threat Simulator - Laptop ScreenA breach and attack simulation (BAS) platform, Threat Simulator is built on 20+ years of leadership in network security testing. With Threat Simulator, you can continuously validate your security posture by safely simulating real-world cyber attacks on your production network.

But Threat Simulator doesn't just simulate the cyber attack kill chain. Boasting detailed analytics, intuitive design, and automated assessments, it empowers your SecOps team to:

  • Close coverage gaps with best-in-class remediation instructions
  • Save money by maximizing your security controls and processes
  • Obtain a repeatable and continuous measurement of security posture
  • Prevent past incidents and cyber attacks from happening again
  • Understand how new threats will behave on your production network
  • Determine the right mix of security controls against known security risks

threatarmor: Threat intelligence gateway

ThreatARMOR Laptop ScreenA common challenge for SecOps teams is alert fatigue — and for good reason. The sheer volume of SIEM alerts is immense, and it's almost impossible for even the most diligent of teams to investigate all of them. And while next-gen firewalls are great at DPI and threat detection, they are not optimized for blocking malicious, hijacked, and untrusted IP addresses at massive scale.

Enter ThreatARMOR. A threat intelligence gateway, it complements your other security tools by blocking malicious IPs at massive scale without any performance impact. With ThreatARMOR, you can:

  • Block 80% of hostile traffic, botnets, and ransomware
  • Achieve a 15x return on investment in a single year
  • Reduce SIEM alarms and SecOps alert fatigue
  • Stay ahead of attacks with continuous threat updates
  • Optimize operations with full line-rate performance

tap into a continuously-updated threat intelligence database

Knowledge is power, and with Breach Defense it's easy to stay ahead. The world leader in application and security testing, our Application and Threat Intelligence (ATI) Research Center keeps your security operations updated with a robust database of the latest attacks and exploits, 24/7/365.

And with continuous updates to Threat Simulator and ThreatARMOR, you can be confident you're always prepared for the latest (and greatest) cyber security threats.
