The U.S. federal government is one of the most prominent targets in cyberspace, facing daily cyberattacks from advanced persistent threat actors. Implementing a threat-informed defense helps government agencies gain the insights they need to ensure true cybersecurity effectiveness. With AttackIQ, federal institutions can validate cybersecurity controls to ensure they’re working continuously and preventing attackers from silently slipping through the cracks.
Top BAS Use Cases for Government
Automated Security Control Validation
Measure efficacy and validate that specific controls are working the way they should at all times.
NIST Compliance Effectiveness Validation
Close gaps in your security ecosystem by measuring & testing control effectiveness while also ensuring compliance with NIST requirements.
DoD CMMC Compliance Effectiveness Validation
Utilize AttackIQ assessments to validate CMMC security controls and compliance, and ensure DoD contractors handling unclassified DoD materials receive specific security certification.
Mimic adversarial behavior to expose gaps and best use resources and team members to optimize security control defenses.
Maximize cloud security effectiveness in your AWS cloud with security stack mapping aligned to the MITRE ATT&CK framework.
Blend red and blue teams for a holistic, collaborative approach to threat intelligence, testing, and remediation.
Validated Zero Trust 101
Building a zero trust architecture isn’t enough—you need to continuously validate that your security controls are working. In this guide, you’ll learn the ins and outs of a true validated zero trust architecture, including why it’s so important, how to proactively thwart threats, and the processes you need in place for validated zero trust.
Why Goverment Organizations Choose AttackIQ
Easy to Implement
AttackIQ agents are lightweight and easy to install meaning you can get up and running in minutes.
Choice of Deployment
Set up the management system remotely as software-as-a-service or directly on-prem—whichever suits your needs or requirements.
Our Security Optimization Platform does not need dedicated test points, making it more scalable than other solutions on the market.
Safe for Production
Low-profile agents reduce risk of exposing production controls to adversaries.
AttackIQ Bolsters Cybersecurity Controls Throughout a Large U.S. Military Service
One of the United States’ largest military services has adopted the AttackIQ Security Optimization Platform to improve its cybersecurity performance and that of the U.S. military as a whole. Why did they do it, and what are their hopes for the platform? “We wanted a tool for continuously assessing the effectiveness of our people and organizations against specific new threats we could see coming down the pike,” according to a U.S. military service capabilities manager.
