Software Description:

Most companies are unable to verify that their security controls are properly protecting them, enabling hackers to easily steal sensitive information without detection. Many major companies spend millions on cybersecurity yearly, yet are usually not protected -- even if they are complying with regulations.

Threatcare's Violet platform enables companies to continuously validate that their security in place is working, while also giving teams the ability to test if potential software buys actually do what they claim to (and are being properly setup).

Violet isn't just a virtual Purple Team (that combines cybersecurity Red Team and Blue Team actions), Violet also has machine learning and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) abilities which allows it to be more proficient over time.
