Know Your Risk

Visibility into an environment attack surface is the fundamental cornerstone to sound security decision making. However, the standard process of 3rd party threat assessment as practiced today, is both time consuming and expensive.

At Cynet, we’re change the rules of the game with a free threat assessment offering, that, based on a mere 72-hours of data collection, enables organizations to gain actionable visibility into their security posture, as well as benchmark it against their industry vertical peers and take action accordingly.


Common Reality – Lack of Visibility into Risk Exposure and Live Threats

In the course of the last couple years, It has become increasingly common to discover that an organization already hosts various degrees of live malicious activity when we come to deploy our platform. In such a situation, our initial – though unplanned – task is to utilize Cynet to discover the environment’s active risks and clean them.

It seems that, typically, organizations are unaware of the malicious activity’s existence and intensity, underestimating attacker’s ability to silently operate under their radar. This gap between the actual threat reality and the false sense of security, drove us to take a proactive approach.

Cynet Free Threat Assessment – Spotlight on All Risks

Instead of responding to the unplanned discovery of threats in the course of our product deployment, we offer a free, comprehensive security assessment that addresses all the security issues we typically encounter. This offering is open to all organizations, regardless of whether they are Cynet’s customers or not.

Cynet Threat Assessment is a free offering that spotlights critical, exposed attack surfaces and provides actionable knowledge of attacks that are currently alive and active in the environment:

  •         Indication of live attacks: active malware, connection to C&C, data exfiltration, access to phishing  links, users credential theft attempts and others.
  •         User identity attack surface: risk scoring for each user account.
  •         Host and app attack surfaces: unpatched vulnerabilities rated per criticality.
  •         Benchmark comparing your security posture to other companies with similar profile.
  •         Weighted risk score built from all findings and activity.


Know How You Rank Relative to Your Industry Peers

Security posture doesn’t take place in vacuum. In is common to see attackers targeting a multitude companies with similar profiles – healthcare companies for personal data records, retailers for credit card info and so on. How an organization scores relative to its industry peers, is a strong indication of its susceptibility to attacks and its ability to withstand one.


Enabling Security Decision Makers to Know and Act

The security assessment’s objective is to enable security stakeholders to get clear visibility into their actual security needs so they can make an informed decision regarding how to address them within their available resources. Given that the price of a such an assessment for mid-enterprise starts from ~$25K, it is a no-brainer offering that organizations should seriously consider adopting.

The most important point from our side is that these guys realize the risk is actual and here. It’s not a matter of checking an ‘advanced security’ box to put management’s mind at ease. It’s a pure, burning need that we want any organization to be able to see.
