FREMONT, CA: XM Cyber, the provider of breach and attack simulation (BAS) and advanced security posture management platform, established a new partnership with Cyber Guards, allowing a much more flexible customer engagement approach.
Cyber Guards, headquartered in Memphis, TN, is now incorporating XM Cyber into its service offerings, including cybersecurity assessments, managed security, and incident response. The addition of XM Cyber enhances the overall capability and depth of these services and creates a powerful security posture improvement program that prioritizes security activities based on potential impact.
"Not all organizations want to manage and build the staff required to fully defend against the growing number of cyber attackers," says John McCabe, Vice President of Channels and Alliances for XM Cyber. "Through Cyber Guards, customers can now take advantage of XM Cyber's patented attack simulation and vulnerability assessment capabilities while relying on Cyber Guards highly skilled team for execution and remediation."
By safely simulating attacks 24/7, XM Cyber exposes real-life security problems that emerge from vulnerabilities, human error, and misconfiguration. Besides, recommendations for the remediation of issues are given and prioritized based on relevance and relation to the customer's most critical assets. By helping companies strengthen their security posture, XM Cyber reduces costs and allows security teams to focus on the most crucial issues while reducing exposure and risk.
"Our customers need to see that we have helped them reduce risk by eliminating potential security breaches," says Erik Holmes, CEO of Cyber Guards. "By partnering with XM Cyber, we give customers the best tools available for understanding how a hacker would attempt to reach their most critical assets. It's a win-win-win for us all."
Cyber Guards provides comprehensive cybersecurity to support organizations with risk assessment and security project road-mapping; 24/7 security monitoring, detection, and response; fully controlled cybersecurity programs and security validation testing.
