How CyCognito Can Help

Use cases that demonstrate how you can make informed decisions, optimize resources, and build a resilient enterprise that thrives in today’s dynamic threat landscape.

Assess Your Security Effectiveness

Ongoing security self-assessment to measure and monitor your organization’s security effectiveness

Manage your security performance with the CyCognito platform to fully understand and measurably improve your cybersecurity posture. The digital risk management platform provides unprecedented visibility to risk across your organization’s attack surface so that you can perform a security self-assessment and measure your external risk, including your exposures in on-premises, cloud, partner and subsidiary environments.

Evaluate Merger & Acquisition Risk

Early insight into IT security risk for your merger and acquisition candidates

The CyCognito platform gives you immediate visibility into the risk posture of the targets you are evaluating for merger and acquisition (M&A). Full organizational business mapping, a complete asset inventory, and accurate risk scoring provide the visibility you need to make informed decisions.

Manage Your Attack Surface

Get a complete view of your attack surface by identifying all of your attacker-exposed assets

The CyCognito platform helps you identify all of the attacker-exposed assets in your IT ecosystem for a complete view of your attack surface. With its comprehensive global botnet, the CyCognito platform uniquely reveals unknown and unmanaged assets associated with your organization – including those in cloud, partner and subsidiary environments – that are critical to your cybersecurity risk management.


Monitor Subsidiary Risk

Discover and prioritize security risks introduced by your subsidiaries

A key challenge for holding companies, multinational corporations, and other conglomerates is monitoring the IT security risk of their subsidiaries. Subsidiary IT environments contain assets that you don’t manage but that can still put your organization at risk. Unknown and unmanaged attacker-exposed assets in these environments can easily be the source of your organization’s most critical cybersecurity risk.

Prioritize & Eliminate Attack Vectors

Maintain a continuously updated and prioritized view of your attacker-exposed IT ecosystem

The CyCognito platform helps you eliminate critical attack vectors with a continuously updated and prioritized view of your attacker-exposed IT ecosystem. You and your security team can use the CyCognito platform to pinpoint critical risks just as attackers do. Organizations that still have to perform legacy external testing to meet customer agreements or compliance regulations use the CyCognito platform to augment and optimize those processes by focusing the legacy tests on the areas of greatest risk that the CyCognito platform has identified.

Scale your Red Teams and Pen Testers

Continuous reconnaissance and active security testing across your full external attack surface

CyCognito automates the first phase of offensive cyber operation with deep, nation-state-grade reconnaissance and active security testing. Pen testing and red teaming staff are able to focus on meaningful activities that require human decision. With CyCognito, you have instant access to your M&A candidate's external attack surface and which assets pose the most risk. It identifies the effectiveness of its security controls without requiring any deployment or configuration.
