Keysight’s Managed Security Services Providers Program


Keysight Technologies has launched a new cybersecurity partnership program for managed security service providers (MSSP) to improve the breach and attack simulation (BAS) capabilities of Keysight Threat Simulator.

Cyberattacks are on the rise and so is the cost of a data breach. IBM and the Ponemon Institute estimate that the cost of data breaches has reached an all-time high globally, averaging $4.35 million in 2022 per incident.

With the increasing number of cyberattacks and a shortage of security skills, many companies struggle to adequately plan for attacks that could significantly damage their operations and reputation.

Recognizing this challenge, companies are turning to MSSPs to help defend their ever-evolving IT networks and assets against data breaches.

To provide MSSPs additional tools to protect their clients, Keysight has enhanced its Threat Simulator offering to include new consumption-based pricing. Additional capabilities and enhancements include:

  • New on-premises hosting and cloud-based hosting
  • Realistic breach and attack simulations for the full Cyber Kill Chain®, relevant software threats, and advanced persistent threats
  • Detailed remediation via comprehensive Structured Threat Information eXpression (STIX) and JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) indicators of compromise (IOC)
  • Automation to validate the ability of multiple security controls to alert the security information and event management (SIEM)

Scott Register, Keysight Vice President Security Solutions said, “People, processes, and technology can’t always be perfect. With attackers looking to exploit any weakness, it’s important for organizations to proactively shorten the window of opportunity for adversaries.  Keysight provides the proactive capabilities for MSSPs to rapidly find, remediate, and validate their customers’ exploitable security vulnerabilities — before they become headline news.”
