Security Validation
About

Mandiant Security Validation goes beyond attack simulation to validate effectiveness.

The general assumption is that Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) provides a comprehensive view of an organization’s cyber security posture. It does not. Many traditional BAS vendors have begun to label themselves as security validation. However, security validation requires a specific set of capabilities to generate the evidence your security team needs to confidently protect the business including the ability to:

Safely test your security effectiveness against the latest attacks and adversaries

Cyber security effectiveness needs to be objectively measured on an ongoing basis, not only to ensure the systems and tools in place are reducing an organization’s exposure to risk, but also to support CISOs who are being asked to measurably improve and demonstrate the value of their security investments to key stakeholders.

Prove the value of security investments

Until now, there has been no measurable way for SOC teams or CISOs to demonstrate the value of their security investments. Security Validation empowers your team to measure cyber security performance with empirical evidence to prove that the security controls in place are protecting your environment.

Powered by the Mandiant Intel Grid, Security Validation provides you with visibility and performance data to report on your organization’s security posture and overall competency. This approach allows you to prioritize your risk optimization strategy based on the knowledge of which threats matter most to your organization.
