SAN DIEGO, Feb. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AttackIQ™, a leader in the emerging market of continuous security validation, today announced that the company will be showcasing attack simulation technologies that can help enterprises locate critical security flaws and prevent devastating breaches at booth #640 during the AFCEA West 2018 Cybersecurity Conference in San Diego Feb. 6-9, 2018.

When: Tuesday, February 6-Friday, February 9, 2018

Where: San Diego Convention Center, 111 W Harbor Drive, San Diego, Calif., Booth #640

“Though we’re only weeks into 2018, we have already seen significant attacks and security breaches in enterprises both large and small,” said Carl Wright, chief revenue officer for AttackIQ. “It’s not a matter of ‘if’ organizations get breached, but when, and consequently, it is simply a best security practice and common sense to assume that cyber criminals are already in your network. Going forward, organizations should spend at least 10 percent of their security budget on security validation - finding protection failures before the cyber attackers do, which includes validating security postures through automated system testing.”

Leveraging its renowned OffensiveDefense strategy, AttackIQ discovers protection failures before the adversary by augmenting security teams with its patented continuous security validation platform that utilizes attack simulation. This approach gives security teams the ability to conduct tests more thoroughly and accurately, while equipping them with a robust security control validation tool to locate security flaws before the attackers. It also provides incident response teams with the ability to evaluate performance or identify process gaps "at will.” What’s more, this approach also enables CISOs and their teams to have continuous visibility into the effectiveness of the organization’s security controls and posture.
