How targeted simulations differ from penetration tests and vulnerability scanning

Stay one step ahead of cyber attackers

whitepaper

As cyberattacks become more sophisticated, they become harder to detect and mitigate. Current methods that organisations use to verify that their systems and data are protected are vulnerability scans and penetration tests, neither of which present the full picture of an organisation’s security posture.

The most effective way for an organisation to test its resilience against the growing wave of cybercrime is to opt for targeted attack simulations that use multi-vector simulated attacks. These kinds of simulations are known as Breach and Attack Simulations (BAS).

This whitepaper evaluates the effectiveness of a holistic BAS strategy compared to traditional methods of gaining insight into the security posture of an organisation.
