Swetha Krishnamoorthi, Industry Analyst, Cyber Security at Frost & Sullivan mentioned that "The fast-paced digitalization we witness today requires businesses to be extremely dynamic, but adversaries have become even more so. In such an environment, businesses need better security, yet recent breaches show that blindly investing in security tools does not always deliver enhanced resilience. The key to decreasing cyber risk is evidence-based insight that can be used to plan security improvements and verify that cyber-defenses work as expected. Frost & Sullivan's research found that Picus gives security leaders the insights they need while also solving a bigger problem: insufficient security due to limited resources. Picus creates a force-multiplier effect in addressing this problem, helping red and blue teams work together, thereby enhancing the security posture of the organization.
H. Alper Memis, CEO of Picus Security stated "we as Picus Security work hard in researching new adversarial techniques and developing solutions that could assist cybersecurity teams and executives taking crucial decisions with confidence and speed. I am very proud of the Picus team and truly delighted that our commitment to making businesses run safer is recognized by a leading research firm".
