Picus Security
If you want to analyze the full path focusing on the signatures it’s the best product in the market. If you want to test phishing, data exfiltration/DLP, DNS I don’t recommend Picus. Scenario based attacks also lacking. However Picus support is awesome and I like the development team. When we open a case, they’ll always return with the right answer

  • Attack vectors are mapped with existing vendors like Checkpoint and Mcafee, where you don't spend time finding out which cve mapped to which protection
  • Ability to focus/highlght solely new threats, it's superb for 0days and up-to-date protections. As there are always timing issue between updates and apply the updates on the products.
  • Blocked vs not blocked ratios on the dashboard with drill down menu specifiying the set of protections or signatures on the defensive measures
  • Already mapped mitre att&ck framework on the dasboard. SOC and analyst team using the Mitre framework.

We use other vendors Verodin, AttackIQ, SafeBreach, Cymulate etc. All of them have their advantages and disadvantages. Please take a look at TrustRadius reviews of each product. I don’t want to go head to head for each product in this
review. I select Picus because it's local startup company in our region. I like their support and engineering team. Support is marvelous. Product is giving what we expected from the product. Price is adequate. Reporting and dashboard is superb.
