Breach and Attack Simulation company announces triple growth, widely expanding customer base, and key leadership hires.
RISHON LEZION, Israel, Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Thanks to new partnerships and rapid customer acquisition, Cymulate, the leading Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) platform, today announced triple growth in 2018, following strong performance the previous year.
With cyberattacks and hacking on the rise, enterprises have been increasingly dependent on cybertech innovators to protect their assets and data. Despite only entering the cybersecurity toolbox in 2017, BAS use has already seen rapid expansion and wide adoption. In 2018, Cymulate was recognized as a Cool Vendor in Application and Data Security by Gartner.*
"Rapid and increased growth in 2018 is a testimony to Cymulate's leading platform and team," says Eyal Wachsman, Co-Founder and CEO of Cymulate. "As attacks have increased in quality and sophistication, our customers have benefited from the ability to understand their cyber posture in just minutes. In the year ahead, we are expanding our services and strengthening our presence in the Americas and Europe, with a new US and UK office, respectively."
New Strategic Partnerships
Cymulate established several notable partnerships over the past year, including a technical integration with Tenable, Inc., which enabled security teams to seamlessly view Tenable.io data from within Cymulate's platform. As well, Cymulate and Symantec announced an Attacker-Defender collaboration to share research into the latest email-based threats.
In January 2018, an Endpoint Assessment Solution was added to the platform to help businesses protect themselves from hackers and malicious insiders who specifically target endpoints. Cymulate's Immediate Threat Assessment capabilities were also enhanced with an automated process based on the MITRE ATT&CK (Adversarial Tactics, Techniques, and Common Knowledge) framework, to alert platform users of new threats and risk potential.
Cymulate's cyber-research unit, comprised of distinguished reverse engineers, penetration testers, and software engineers continued to find new vulnerabilities and exploits such as the Microsoft Logical Bug, which abuses the Online Video feature on Microsoft Word to execute malicious code (Read the press release here).
