Picus is the Complete Security Control Validation Platform

Picus is the Complete Security Control Validation Platform

Established by cybersecurity veterans with academic backgrounds and extensive hands-on experience, Picus Security has developed a transformative Security Validation solution for end-to-end attack readiness visibility and effortless mitigation to pre-empt cyberattacks across all cyber defense layers. In 2013, Picus Security pioneered Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) technology and has helped companies improve their cyber resilience since then.

Picus’ “The Complete Security Validation Platform” provides granular and actionable insights for operational and executive teams, helps built proactive capabilities, maximizes technology utilization, and thus optimizes return on investment and keeps the risk of getting breached consistently low.

Picus is an award-winning Complete Security Control Validation Platform. Picus validates your cyber threat readiness 24x7, identifying detection gaps, and having mitigation insights empowered by the largest technology alliance ecosystem in the industry.

"Picus Detection Analytics, along with other components of the Picus Cyber Defense Validation Platform, provides advanced detection analytics capabilities based on threat emulation findings."

Detection Analytics & Mitigation

Empowered by content rich Picus libraries, the Detection Analytics & Mitigation solution unveils the risk associated with data collection complications, undetected adversarial activities. Easy to implement mitigation content that comes with it boosts all the SOC processes from threat intelligence, incident analysis to incident response and threat hunting for maximum cyber defense efficacy.

The proprietary threat library maintained by Picus Labs is the essence of the Picus Validation Platform. Undertaking Global Threat Watch, Imminent Threat Analysis and Commonality Evaluation processes, Picus Labs provides thousands of real-world threat samples and scenarios that best represent the threat landscapes around the clock. Picus Labs ties all Threat Library content to MITRE ATT&CK with over 90% coverage, cyber kill-chain, and OWASP frameworks.

The Picus Security SOC teams work hard. Processing massive volumes of heterogeneous data sets, they try to detect all indicators of compromise swiftly, assign the right priorities, and take actions without leaving anything important behind. Regardless of how next-gen or automated a SOC platform is, Picus gives you a coherent validation solution for identifying the gaps and shortcomings proactively.

SOCs sit at the heart of Blue Team operations. Validating SOC or Blue Team efficacy is primarily driven by deploying offensive security practices such as Red Team or penetration test. These solutions come with their limitations concerning adversarial scope, repeatability, budget consumption, and use of time, while SOC teams need to have sustained visibility on logging and alerting capabilities about the adversarial context.

Picus Detection Analytics, along with other components of the Picus Cyber Defense Validation Platform, provides advanced detection analytics capabilities based on threat emulation findings. It enables SOC teams to trace the journey of each emulated attack across the whole organization, leaving no corners for malicious activities to go undetected.


Modern cyber security stacks are often complex, but hardly gap-free. Manually maintaining a broad range of technologies is arduous without a helping hand from automation. Security teams need innovative tools in identifying security gaps in relation with the changing adversarial context.

Picus Detection Analytics is an automated module that queries SIEM and EDR security logs to find the difference between the available events and expected events. Every emulated threat and adversary technique create a log in the relevant security controls should these emulations be detected or prevented. Querying SIEM and EDR platforms in customer environments, the Detection Analytics module matches query findings using advanced algorithms, with the real threat samples and techniques emulated by Picus Threat Emulation Module. As a result, undetected, unlogged, and non-alerted attacks are identified on the spot.

Detection Analytics has an intelligent 24x7 modus operandi. It utilizes the most extensive adversarial context, covering more than 90% of the MITRE ATT&CK techniques and the largest number of malware, vulnerability exploits, and web application attacks samples, thanks to Picus Threat Library.

Picus Detection Analytics is no ordinary detection validation technology. It is designed to provide minimal to zero false positives thanks to its comprehensive analytics capabilities brought by the proprietary Picus Dictionary. Its unique integration with content-rich Picus Mitigation Library makes vendor-specific EDR and SIEM detection policy improvements easy and possible. Current detection and response related technology alliance partners are IBM, Splunk, and VMware Carbon Black.

Picus Threat Emulation Module assesses the “readiness level” of network, web application, endpoint, and email security controls in production networks, either being in operation 24x7 or on-demand for red team practices. The emulation module can be configured over multiple attack vectors simultaneously and can process thousands of adversarial scenarios in Picus Threat Library across your whole defensive estate, cloud-based or on-premise, in a matter of hours. Threat Emulation Module is the pivotal piece of the Picus Platform. It bridges your defensive capabilities with the largest available adversarial library and links the identified gaps with the Picus Mitigation Library for quick risk elimination. The innovative architecture of Picus Threat Emulation Module puts your defensive stack under adversarial challenge across network and endpoint controls estate, for continuous or time-bound validation practices.
