Frequently Asked Questions

Security validation reduces cyber risk by verifying that an organization’s cyber security program is effective at defending its critical assets against the latest threats. 

Without consistent validation, security teams can never be confident that security controls and processes are working as expected.

Due to the ever-changing threat landscape and IT infrastructure drift, security validation is a process that must be performed frequently.

Only by performing automated security validation can organizations obtain the insights they need to stay on top of their security posture and proactively identify and respond to risks sooner.

The Picus Security Validation Platform’s threat library is updated on a daily basis, ensuring security teams can simulate the latest threats. New emerging threats with actionable IOCs are added to the Picus Platform within 24 hours of disclosure.

The Picus Security Validation Platform is licensed as a yearly subscription, which includes access to its entire threat library and unlimited simulations. The platform is comprised of five individually licensed products that can be licensed based on the validation use cases most relevant to an organization.

The Picus platform is delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS). In addition to the cloud-based deployment (available in multiple regions globally), it can also be deployed on-premises for organizations with strict regulatory requirements. For specific use cases, the Picus platform also supports fully air-gapped networks (environments w/o any connectivity to the outside world).
