Continuous Visibility into Compliance Violations, Automatically

Tackle your compliance efforts head on with direct mapping of assets and issues tied to major compliance frameworks.

Common Compliance Challenges

IT security, IT operations and GRC teams are often challenged during audits to produce timely results with a clear evidence chain.

Rapidly Changing Asset Inventory

Modern organizations have constantly changing asset inventories and infrequent/incomplete security testing - both work against a streamlined compliance exercise.

Evidence Collection Difficulties

Manually generating the reports auditors require can be time consuming for staff - even with access to all of the relevant records.

Lack of Accountability

Multiple teams with multiple agendas makes it difficult to coordinate, track and align with audit requirements.


MITRE ATT&CK and NIST Cybersecurity Framework

In addition to dashboard based visibility into major compliance frameworks, CyCognito natively assists in compliance with MITRE ATT&CK and NIST Cybersecurity Framework.


MITRE ATT&CK, a free and open knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques, is often used as a security reference architecture.

While the majority of the ATT&CK framework is geared to providing insight into detecting attackers in real-time during an attack, its Reconnaissance and Resource Development tactics are focused on attacker preparation. The CyCognito platform preempts attacks by addressing these two tactics.

CyCognito also offers support for the ATT&CK tactics such as Initial Access, Execution, Persistence, Privilege Elevation, Defense Evasion, Credential

NIST Cybersecurity Framework

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework is voluntary guidance, based on existing standards, guidelines, and practices for organizations to better manage and reduce cybersecurity risk.

The CyCognito platform helps organizations follow this standard by mapping closely to the Identify and Protect functions and contributing to Detect, Respond and Recover functions.

Accelerate Compliance with CyCognito

CyCognito supports each framework with policies, controls, automated evidence collection, and continuous monitoring needed to get ready for audit or prove attestation in minimal time.

Early Violation Visibility

Automatic Evidence Collection

Every violation is tracked, visible and available to export by your teams.

Comprehensive Asset Discovery

Transparency and comprehensiveness are key to a successful compliance program.

Get early visibility into compliance infractions

Often, organizations learn of compliance issues during an audit, making it a challenge to respond effectively. Integrating CyCognito within your asset inventory and security testing workflow enables a scheduled response and higher confidence of state. It also illustrates due diligence and consistency required for compliance program alignment.

✔ Reduce "unknown unknowns" within internet-exposed asset

✔ Gain actionable insight with every compliance infraction - solve issues before the audit

✔ Direct access to compliance state - searchable, filterable, exportable

Evidence collection, at your fingertips

Illustrating framework compliance requires digital proof at every step. With CyCognito, you have immediate access to all data points that illustrate alignment with chosen compliance frameworks.

✔ Speed reaction time with continuous evidence collection for compliance-based issues

✔ Reduce tedious, error-prone efforts to understand state of compliance on internet-edge

✔ Easily track progress in the months/weeks leading up to an audit

Visibility into your entire external attack surface, automatically

Organizations attempting to achieve alignment with compliance frameworks have strict requirements – gaps in visibility are to be avoided at all costs. Change is inevitable and constant; with CyCognito you have a dynamically maintained asset inventory that changes alongside your organization.

✔ Expand current coverage – often 30-50% of known assets – to greater than 90%

 Organizational business structure is mapped to each asset

✔ Classification (what it is) and attribution (who owns it) for each asset
