Meet Some of the Folks Behind Mandiant Security Validation

You’ve heard of security validation and know that it’s necessary to test your security effectiveness, but do you know how our team develops the right attacks to test your controls against threat activity we see in real life?

On this episode of our Eye on Security podcast, Henry Peltokangas, Director of Product Management, and Nart Villeneuve, Director of Research & Collections, give us an inside look at what goes on behind the scenes at Mandiant Security Validation.

We begin our chat by discussing some of the key benefits of security validation. We then dive into the research Henry’s team conducts to take tactics and techniques that adversaries use in the real world and replicate them within the Mandiant Security Validation platform.

Nart and Henry go on to discuss how Mandiant Security Validation replicates adversary activity across every stage of the attack lifecycle, and then explain exactly why that is important. Finally, we wrap up the episode by previewing some new features in upcoming releases, and how Henry and Nart see security validation evolving in the future.
