Continuous security validation allows teams to harden and maintain a strong security baseline. Any security posture can be weakened by evolutions in the outer threat land scape.

By constantly and automatically measuring the level of exposure to cyber risk and the associated degree of readiness, continuous validation eliminates potential gaps resulting from change management or misconfiguration.
