SCYTHE New Version 4.0 Enhances Collaboration Across Multiple Security Team Roles
September 8, 2022
SCYTHE, a leader in adversarial emulation, announced the release of version 4.0 of the company’s flagship cybersecurity platform, offering new features and functionality that will extend capabilities for greater collaboration between blue, red, and purple teams. SCYTHE runs real-world adversary emulations that help security teams reduce detection and response rates, validate controls, and optimize resources by enabling teams to prioritize vulnerabilities, and focus on the highest risk issues to the business. Its scalable platform automates adversary emulations and expands your team’s threat intelligence skills so that you can multiply your cybersecurity team’s velocity and reduce cybersecurity risk.
SCYTHE has the largest, public library of threats in the breach attack simulation industry and has more capabilities than all other competitors combined as shown by Tidal Cyber’s Community Edition of their SaaS threat-informed defense platform.
With a redesigned UI, SCYTHE 4.0 makes threats easier to manage by bringing campaign details to the surface, allows for greater communication between team members, and makes it simpler to take action via Jira integrations—all available as an on-prem or SaaS offering. Through automation, communication, and integrations, SCYTHE 4.0 is designed to help security teams collaborate, as a purple team, on adversary emulation.
“The new SCYTHE 4.0 platform sets a new standard for adversary emulation automation for offensive, defensive, and hybrid purple teams to help customers strengthen defenses, share actionable data between teams to better resolve real-world cybersecurity concerns quickly, and improve collaboration,” said Stephanie Simpson, VP, Product. “Version 4.0 is based on feedback from our customers and prospects about what they need to optimize their teams’ breach and attack simulation (BAS) capabilities.”
In addition to this, SCYTHE’s Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) Team just released offerings that are complementary to the SCYTHE platform capabilities and services that can serve as an extension of your security team. This includes emergency action emulation plans, custom plans, cloud-focused plans, and emulation plans covering more diverse tactics, techniques and procedures.
What’s New With 4.0?
SCYTHE version 4.0 was designed to enhance collaboration within security teams and improve the user experience. These updates include:
- Collaboration features — SCYTHE enables greater collaboration between blue, red, and purple teams to create and leverage existing adversary emulation plans. The updated, user-friendly dashboard clearly displays outcomes and severity of campaign results. Users can have different access levels to create and personalize realistic attacks or re-run existing attacks. In-platform messaging now allows for better and faster communication between users.
- Workflow automation — Users can take a more collaborative team approach and seamlessly share actionable insights through a Jira integration.
- SaaS and on-prem — Previously an exclusively on-prem solution, SCYTHE 4.0 now has a SaaS offering available to provide flexibility to customers in any type of environment.
SCYTHE 4.0 will be available for customers in Q4.
SCYTHE is like hiring the hacker you always wanted, but could never afford. SCYTHE transforms your organization’s capabilities and defines a new technology category: Attack, Detect, and Respond to integrate cybersecurity risk management across people, process, and technology. The SCYTHE 4.0 platform enables collaboration between red, blue, and purple teams to build and emulate real-world adversarial campaigns. Customers can easily and quickly validate the risk posture and exposure of their business and employees and the performance of enterprise security teams and existing security solutions.
