Cybersecurity Partnership Handshake

SafeBreach has unveiled a strategic partnership with Microsoft. As part of the agreement, SafeBreach’s attack technique simulations integrate with the Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) evaluation lab.

The partnership with Microsoft offers security teams access to SafeBreach’s breach-and-attack simulation (BAS) platform. They can test how effective of endpoint security capabilities are against malware infection and credential theft. They also look at data collection, ransomware, registry key modification and malicious OS configurations.

Itzik Kotler is SafeBreach’s CTO. He tells us SafeBreach partners can use the simulations within the evaluation lab to demonstrate Microsoft Defender ATP’s capabilities.

SafeBreach partners also are Microsoft partners.

“Further, they can use SafeBreach in the customer’s production environment post deployment to validate and prove the value of Microsoft Defender ATP,” he said. “Microsoft partners, specifically those reselling Microsoft ATP, will benefit now by being able to safely show the efficacy of MD ATP.”

Evaluation Challenges

Many evaluation processes prove challenging while demonstrating the effectiveness of protection tools, Kotler said.

“The ability to safely demonstrate how security tools perform versus real-world threats, in a safe and repeatable format, enables them to accelerate evaluation processes and have confidence in the configuration and deployment,” he said.

In the lab, testers choose between different simulations. Each covers a broad range of potential attack tactics and procedures.

“The SafeBreach integration … enables customers to easily simulate a wide range of attacks and learn more on how to improve detection, investigation and response capabilities in their network, tackling some of the most critical threats they face in the wild,” said Moti Gindi, corporate vice president of Microsoft threat protection.

SafeBreach has multiple integrations with Microsoft. Those include the evaluation lab, automatic correlation and remediation, Kotler said. These integrations allow Microsoft Defender ATP end users to streamline the evaluation, validation and configuration of the tool, he said.

“Additional integrations with other Microsoft security tools will be coming,” he said.

Last month, SafeBreach got $19 million in Series-C funding. The round brings the company’s total funding to more than $50 million.
