Threat Simulator — Breach and Attack Simulation Platform

Data Sheets

Problem: Security is Hard, Misconfigurations are Common, and Breaches are Rampant


With a multitude of emerging threats from inside and outside your network, the risk of a security breach has never been higher. All those risk factors are combined with a big human element that assumes everything has been setup and configured properly to get the best outcomes from each security tool. Organizations typically respond to this problem by throwing more money at the problem — acquiring additional security controls while increasing management complexity and complicating visibility for teams such as SecOps that are pressed to provide results and ROI.


But the real problem behind all those things is that it has been extremely difficult to effectively measure your security posture. And when you can’t measure security, it becomes harder to manage and improve it.


The result is that you can’t quantify the risks to your business, or the return on your security investment, or understand how to optimize it.


Solution: proactive, continuous security validation


To ensure a strong defense, organizations need to embrace an offensive approach that employ up-todate threat intelligence to continuously verify their enterprise-wide security controls are working as expected and are optimized for maximum protection.


With Keysight’s Threat Simulator, enterprises can measure their security posture, gain insights into the effectiveness of their security tools and obtain actionable remediation steps to improve it.


With this data, you can start optimizing the existing security solutions so that you can improve your security without adding another expensive security solution.


Keysight Threat Simulator builds on 20+ years of leadership in network security testing to reveal your security exposure across public, private, and hybrid networks. The ongoing research of our Application and Threat Intelligence team ensures regular updates so you have access to the latest breach scenarios and threat simulations.
