Threat Simulator SANS Review
SANS had the opportunity to explore the Threat Simulator platform from Keysight Technologies, which has a very strong background in attack simulation and controls validation. In the review, SANS found Threat Simulator to be:
- Packed with a comprehensive set of attack and testing scenarios and use cases
- Easy to use, with an intuitive interface and ample visualization capabilities that make it simple to build complex attack paths
- Highly capable of automating any types of assessments we could imagine, which allows for nuanced testing and repeatability
- Enabled for continuous validation thanks to easy scheduling of assessment
With patient data and safety paramount, how can you be sure your existing security tools are effective against threats? The risk to patient security and data and the costs of cybercrime are rising. New threats emerge every day, so much so that the FDA has underlined the importance of monitoring and assessing cybersecurity risks for connected devices. Keysight's solutions are used by leading healthcare organizations to help solve many of the core components of a Zero Trust model: device security, network security, visibility tools, and validation.
Many public sector organizations don't always have the time or resources to keep up with the growth of cybersecurity threats. Keysight is helping public sector organizations identify security gaps and assess the effectiveness of future investments. For example, we helped one public sector organization by revealing that 70 percent of attacks were getting through perimeter defenses because the organization didn't have Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) inspection in place. Read how we can help public sector organizations reduce cyber risk.
Financial services are highly regulated, and with potentially lucrative targets for hackers that succeed in overcoming defenses, the costs of a security breach for Financial Services firms are high. Read how we can help finance organizations reduce cyber risk. One US fintech asked Keysight to check its defenses; we found that they were missing 32 percent of high-severity web application attacks and 50 percent of all security attacks — even though they had DDoS protection and NGFWs in place. Read how we can help finance organizations reduce cyber risk.
OT environments are evolving fast. As the attack surface grows, IoT devices become an attractive target for hackers making it vital to have continuous visibility of threats. Read how we can help industrial organizations reduce cyber risk and ensure that all tools are configured effectively by simulating potential attacks on OT devices. We have joined forces with SCADAfence to allow security teams to run simulations of attacks.

eBook – What is Breach and Attack Simulation?
According to our research, nearly 2 in 3 companies aren't confident their security tools are properly configured. That's why so many SecOps teams rely on breach and attack simulation (BAS) tools like Threat Simulator.
