Our vision

XM Cyber, a Schwarz Group Company, is a leading hybrid cloud security company that’s changing the way innovative organizations approach cyber risk. Our award-winning Attack Path Management platform lets you continuously see your on-prem and cloud networks through the eyes of an attacker and spot attacks before they happen. Because when you see all the ways in, you can keep them all out.

Why XM Cyber

With the rise of digitalization, security is paramount to protecting growing ecosystems. XM Cyber brings an innovative approach to proactively prevent cyber-attacks by modeling how an attacker propagates the network. By discovering critical attack paths across on-premises and multi-cloud networks, it helps organizations cost-effectively close security gaps before systems are compromised.

“We combine a variety of attack techniques – exactly as the hacker would combine them. And we show you all the possibilities, all the potential attack paths, from any breached point to any of your critical assets, across on premises to cloud networks. Now organizations can gain a single, comprehensive and accurate view of their security posture.”
Noam Erez
CEO of XM Cyber
“Finding and closing security gaps from an attacker’s perspective is a disruptive approach to the way organizations can proactively protect their networks. XM Cyber’s solution builds on our strong IT security to further protect our customers, partners, and ourselves as a company.”
Christian Müller
Chief Information Officer of Schwarz Group

See all ways you can secure the future

If your organization is like most, you’re drowning in siloed data which lacks context of the risk to your critical assets, but you can’t see what impacts your risk the most or how they come together to be exploited by an attacker – much less how to efficiently eliminate them. And that’s a big disconnect. You can see that you’ve invested in all the best tools, but you still can’t see if your network is secure or not. XM Cyber lets you see all ways.
