- Cloud Native Control Validation – Security operations teams and threat analysts can validate security controls for Cloud Native applications running in Containers or Cloud native services running in public cloud environments.
- Risk-Based Vulnerability Management – CISOs and their teams can establish data-driven, intelligent prioritization of vulnerability management focused on the greatest risks determined by intelligent analysis of the threat, attack surface and exploitability of each vulnerability.
“By continuing to innovate, we are helping our customers stay ahead of threats even as the environment for cybersecurity grows more challenging,” says SafeBreach CEO and co-founder Guy Bejerano. “We continue our absolute focus on enabling businesses to drive down their most critical cyber risks and maximize the value they derive from their security infrastructure.

The SafeBreach’s Labs team has demonstrated industry leadership with back-to-back speaking appearances at Black Hat & Defcon in 2019 and in 2020. In addition, SafeBreach has expanded its Hackers Playbook(™) from 10,000 to 27,000+ breach and attack methods, adding thousands of novel ransomware and other attacks to build its lead as the largest collection of actual attacks spotted in the wild.
