Ensure Cybersecurity Effectiveness with Picus Security Control Validation

What defines a safe and secure organisation? We’ve worked it out for you and compiled together a list of top 5 use cases of how Picus help you build a cyber-resilient organisation.

The Challenge: 

On average, enterprises deploy between 30 and 70 security tools but in many cases have no idea about how effective they actually are. 

Without an ability to measure efficacy, it is almost impossible to know if investments are delivering the expected value. As such, cybersecurity leaders can have a false impression about the state of their current security and struggle to justify spending decisions.

How Picus Can Help You: 

The Picus Complete Security Control Validation Platform enables organizations to test and measure the ability of their security controls to defend against the latest threats. Importantly, it also provides actionable mitigation content and insights to improve their effectiveness - helping to swiftly address gaps and improve security outcomes.

The Picus platform continuously assesses the prevention capabilities of network security controls such as Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), Next-Generation Firewalls, and Web Application Firewalls (WAF). It also evaluates the performance of Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) and Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) solutions by validating log and alert generation as well as benchmarking threat coverage and visibility.

Where weaknesses are identified, Picus provides vendor-specific signatures and detection rules - enabling security teams to quickly address them and avoid having to develop their own content. Easily accessible reports and dashboards allow security leaders to quantify the performance of technologies, both individually and collectively and see results mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK framework.
