Spirent announced a major new release of CyberFlood Data Breach Assessment, Spirent’s solution for evaluating the ability of an organization’s security infrastructure to detect active attackers and vulnerabilities. This important new release extends the flexibly deployable assessment from the perimeter and internal network security infrastructure all the way to endpoints. CyberFlood Data Breach Assessment Version 2.0 greatly expands network readiness testing by adding endpoint evaluation, incorporating evasion techniques and encrypted attacks used by attackers, and supporting MITRE ATT&CK and other security frameworks.
“Stakes and consequences are far too high to remain in the dark about your organization’s ability to find an active network attack and curtail a data breach,” said Jurrie Van Den Breekel, VP of Business & Product Development at Spirent. “With the latest enhancements to CyberFlood Data Breach Assessment, we provide companies with the ability to fully assess the network security architecture on an on-going basis with hyper-realistic attack, malware and application scenarios. Only by regularly and proactively assessing the potential for data breaches will organizations be able to stay ahead of the ever-escalating threat of a network attack.”
Endpoint compromise is often the starting point for a data breach attack. The new version of CyberFlood Data Breach Assessment evaluates the security services and settings of Windows clients and servers using a simple agent. This release includes assessments for identifying evasion techniques and encrypted attacks used by attackers for command and control, exfiltration, and additional actions. Support for other operating systems is planned for future releases.
CyberFlood Data Breach Assessment now supports frameworks for arranging and reporting on attack assessment exercises, including the increasingly popular MITRE ATT&CK framework. ATT&CK features a matrix of tools and tactics aligned with how attackers break into and move within systems. CyberFlood Data Breach Assessment supports additional security frameworks, such as the NetSecOPEN Test Suite for implementation and reporting, and can augment those industry standards with its own methodology and reporting, providing a comprehensive assessment.
