The Cymulate attack surface management (ASM) solution now lets users look for security vulnerabilities across their Microsoft Active Directory, Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud environments, according to the company.

It offers four new capabilities:

  • AD Misconfiguration Scanning
  • Cloud Misconfiguration Scanning
  • Vulnerability Scanning
  • Unified Attack Path Mapping and Analysis (UAPMA)

Cymulate CTO Avihai Ben-Yossef commented on the new capabilities and how they impact organizations:

"Customers will immediately benefit from seeing gaps in their public-facing infrastructure and through attack path mapping to see how an attacker can traverse the network from on-premises to cloud and cloud to on-premises. This will significantly aid organizations in assessing how at risk their organization's assets are."

Closing the Visibility Gap

Ultimately, Cymulate's ASM solution "closes the visibility gap needed to understand if an exposure has a viable attack path, if security controls detect and alert effectively and validating that remediations achieve the desired risk mitigation," the company stated. In doing so, the solution enables organizations to classify and prioritize the remediation of vulnerabilities.

Cymulate's ASM solution can be paired with the company's breach and attack simulation (BAS) technology, the business noted. This allows security teams to use Cymulate's technologies to validate if attack path controls detect and alert on threat activity and remediate threats.

Cymulate Unveils Trend Micro Integration, Secures Funding

The ASM solution enhancements come after Cymulate in December 2022 joined the Trend Micro Vision One ecosystem partner program. Together, Cymulate and Trend Micro offer an eXtended detection and response (XDR) solution that validates security across the cyberattack kill chain, the companies said. The joint solution also lets users simulate attacks in alignment with the MITRE ATT&CK framework.

Previously, Cymulate in September 2022 added $70 million in Series D funding from multiple investors. Cymulate is using the funding to expand globally and drive innovation, the company indicated.

Cymulate provides a continuous risk validation and exposure management platform to global organizations. It offers an MSSP partner program and continues to pursue partnership opportunities.
