Vulcan “Visualizes” the Attack Path

IT and security teams now can use the Vulcan Cyber Attack Path Graph capability to visualize and look for threats across their organizations' cloud, network, endpoint, application and code-based attack surfaces, according to the company.

Attack Path Graph lets IT and security teams "visualize attack paths and security posture impact based on cascading vulnerability risk," Vulcan said. It provides insights into security risks through the eyes of a cybercriminal. From here, IT and security teams can use these insights to find the best ways to secure their organizations' attack surfaces.

Vulcan Cyber Offers Attack Path Modeling

Attack Path Graph provides attack path modeling that delivers contextualized risk priority using threat feeds, asset relationships and other criteria, Vulcan noted. In doing so, Attack Path Graph helps IT and security teams allocate their remediation resources to the most-critical vulnerability risks.

In addition, IT and security teams can utilize Attack Path Graph to simultaneously mitigate risk and manage and reduce exposure windows, Vulcan said. They also can generate insights that they can use to make more informed remediation decisions than ever before.

Vulcan Cyber Attack Path Graph Supports Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud

Attack Path Graph gives AWS Cloud users the ability to analyze security groups, access control lists (ACLs) and subnets to create a host topology map, Vulcan said. Then, users can identify and supplement host vulnerability risks with MITRE ATT&CK tactics and techniques. This helps users identify potential attack paths throughout their networks.

Vulcan is offering free access to Attack Path Graph that allows IT and security teams to connect their vulnerability and asset scan data using roughly 100 Vulcan connectors and prioritize vulnerability risk across their organizations' attack surfaces and cyber assets, the company stated.

Vulcan Cyber Partners with Wiz

The Attack Path Graph launch comes after Vulcan announced an integration with the Wiz Integration (WIN) Platform. With the integration, Vulcan has incorporated Wiz's vulnerability and asset risk mitigation workflows into its risk management platform, the company said.

Organizations can use Vulcan's risk management platform to aggregate risk and asset data, prioritize vulnerabilities and automate their mitigation processes, the company stated. MSSPs and other technology providers can join Vulcan's partner program to integrate this platform's capabilities into their offerings.
