2024 Gartner® Peer Insights™ Voice of the Customer for Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) Tools

Explore the top 2024 Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) Tool vendors, with Picus Security leading in customer recommendations and ratings according to the Gartner® Peer Insights™ report.


Despite investing millions of dollars each year in security controls, organizations continue to be breached daily. As per the latest research by Verizon [1], breaches most often are not advanced zero day exploits, but nearly three-quarters of them are a result of human error, such as misconfigurations of existing security controls.

Validating security posture with Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) tools has become a de facto standard for modern security teams. By simulating real-world threats and accurately identifying prevention and detection gaps, security teams can better prioritize their actions and ensure that cyber risks can be mitigated consistently.   

Picus has pioneered BAS for more than 10 years. Sharing our innovations and leadership in the category has seen us recognized as a Leader in the Frost and Sullivan Radar for Breach and Attack Simulation. Today, we are super-thrilled to announce that we have been recognized as a Customers’ Choice vendor in the 2024 Gartner® Peer Insights™ Voice of the Customer for Breach and Attack Simulation Tools.
