This year, the Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) category moved from emerging to “main street,” becoming one of Gartner’s security and risk management trends for 2021 to validate cybersecurity readiness against cyberattacks.
In any hot technology category there are always multiple vendor options. How do you know which one is best for your organization? The usual checklist gets you part of the way: Does the product provide the capabilities and integrations you need? Is the vendor financially stable and proven to scale globally? How easy and reliable is the user experience in terms of software user interface, support, SLAs? Will the solution deliver an appropriate return on investment or total cost of ownership?
But there’s a lot more, right? It’s not just about buying innovative technology. It’s about the people and the culture you’re buying into, too. Do they have a track record of being a great business partner, not just a great technology vendor?
The rapid growth in our company isn’t just because we have the best platform for breach and attack simulation (we do). It’s because no other company is as invested as we are in helping you build a threat-informed defense practice that delivers measurable results.
Today marks the launch of our new brand campaign: We’ve got your six. What does that mean? In World War I and World War II, fighter pilots would confidently say to each other, “I’ve got your six.” The expression comes from the old pilot system in which directions correspond to hours on the clock, where 12 o’clock is forward and 6 o’clock is behind. Anyone behind you is “at your six.” The meaning is: I have your back; I’ve got you covered from enemy attack.
As the leaders in breach and attack simulation, we’ve got your six when it comes to your cybersecurity program. And your twelve, three, and nine too. From our security optimization platform to our deep partnership with the Center for Threat-Informed Defense to our award-winning cybersecurity Academy, we help you take control of risk like nobody else.
We’re constantly innovating our platform to add cutting-edge capabilities around cloud, AI, and ML control validation and reporting, plus inventing new ways to help resource-constrained teams, like our recently-launched AttackIQ Vanguard managed service.
As founding members of the Center for Threat-Informed Defense, we’re actively involved in developing meaningful research that helps practitioners build a proactive defense leveraging the MITRE ATT&CK framework. Alongside co-collaborators like Microsoft, Verizon, Fujitsu, HCA Healthcare, JP Morgan & Chase, Citi, US Bank and more, we’ve contributed to a number of important programs, which the cybersecurity community and our customers benefit from including:
- ATT&CK Workbench
- FIN6 Adversary Emulation Plan
- ATT&CK for Cloud
- Security Control Framework Mappings
- Security Stack Mappings – Azure
- Mapping ATT&CK to CVE for Impact
- Sightings Ecosystems
- Security Stack Mappings – AWS
- Attack Flow
- ATT&CK Techniques
Because it takes more than technology to defend yourself against adversaries, we’re invested in helping security teams stay knowledgeable on the latest threat-informed defense strategies and techniques with our free AttackIQ Academy. To date, more than 23,000 student practitioners in 180+ countries are benefiting from classes on everything from how to operationalize the MITRE ATT&CK framework to Purple Teaming.
American poet Maya Angelou is quoted as having said, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” When you become an AttackIQ customer, partner, or student, we want you to feel – and experience – that we’ve got your six.
Pete Luban, Head of Cybersecurity and IT Risk at Dimensional Fund Advisors, sums it up best: “Prior to AttackIQ, had you asked me what my relationship was like with vendor “xyz”, I’d have asked you why that matters. I know now why it matters. I also know what it costs to provide the level of personalized service that I get from AttackIQ. I also know how difficult it is to take my feedback and actually make good on it. But at the end of the day, they have my back, and that’s all I need to know.”
