SafeBreach Announces New Content Support for Google Cloud Platform

Expanded Content Provides Breach and Attack Simulation Coverage for Three Most Popular Cloud Environments

Sunnyvale, Calif. – February 20, 2024–SafeBreach, the pioneer in breach and attack simulation (BAS), today announced the addition of support for attack simulations targeting the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This added capability now enables SafeBreach users to continuously test and monitor their security posture against real-world data and control plane attack scenarios on all three of the most popular cloud computing platforms: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and GCP. In addition to measuring security risk in cloud environments, SafeBreach simulations also help cloud security teams determine how their security controls would respond to an actual attack and optimize response efforts to their most critical cloud vulnerabilities and security gaps.

Adoption of cloud computing platforms has dominated technology trends for the last five years and rapid growth is expected to continue, with Gartner recently forecasting that 70% of enterprise workloads will be running in the cloud by 2028. In 2023, 65% of public cloud computing was running on either AWS, Azure, or GCP, with most enterprises using more than one. While this continued shift toward the cloud—and to multiple cloud providers—offers significant operational benefits, it also exposes organizations to new security challenges that increase risk and require a greater level of scrutiny of cloud environment security. Yet, research indicates nearly 60% of enterprises running a public cloud environment only assess their cloud security posture once a month or less.

“Maintaining visibility into security posture is one of the primary concerns we hear from enterprises running critical applications and infrastructure in the cloud,” said SafeBreach CTO and Co-Founder Itzik Kotler. “With the addition of support for GCP, SafeBreach customers can now continuously monitor risk, assess their security controls, and proactively remediate critical issues in any of the top cloud computing platforms and in multi-cloud or hybrid environments.”

By leveraging the SafeBreach BAS platform, organizations can continuously validate their cloud-native applications, cloud workloads, containers, and the cloud control plane. As a result, organizations have the ability to:

  • Transition faster into a cloud-native environment
  • Implement a fully automated runtime security validation program
  • Validate and secure all cloud workloads, wherever they run
  • Protect containers against known and unknown malware attacks
  • Validate an attacker’s ability to exploit misconfigurations in the control plane to gain access to cloud infrastructure
  • Secure the full software development life cycle

In addition, SafeBreach is the only BAS vendor to maintain a 24-hour service-level agreement (SLA) to add new attacks to its playbook based on critical US-CERT and FBI Flash alerts, giving its customers a critical edge in understanding their vulnerability to emerging threats. SafeBreach also has the most advanced threat research team in the BAS industry that actively conducts original research to ensure its Hacker’s Playbook remains the world’s largest and most up-to-date collection of 30,000+ exploits and known attack types.
