Here’s a look at the most interesting products from the past week, featuring releases from Acronis, Flashpoint, ImmuniWeb, Lacework, Picus Security, and Vanta.
Flashpoint’s ransomware prediction model enables security teams to remediate vulnerabilities
Flashpoint’s ransomware prediction model determines a Ransomware Likelihood rating that’s derived from a combination of factors, including exploit availability, attack type, impact, disclosure patterns, and other characteristics captured by VulnDB. This intelligence is critical to vulnerability management teams who often lack the resources and context they need to efficiently prioritize and patch tens of thousands of vulnerabilities disclosed every year.
ImmuniWeb Community Edition 2.0 helps users accelerate and automate security testing
With the average number of daily tests attaining 200,000 during peak days, ImmuniWeb Community Edition 2.0 has been optimised so that it conducts tests much faster than previously, and brings new features and functionalities to its users.

Following industry-established standards and mapping to the MITRE ATT&CK framework, Acronis Advanced Security + EDR simplifies the complex solutions required to keep pace with today’s sophisticated threat landscape. It does this by leveraging its unified platform approach which allows IT teams to detect and understand advanced attacks, and then recover using features like attack-specific, one-click rollback.
Picus Complete Security Validation Platform strengthens organizations’ cyber resilience
The new Picus Complete Security Validation Platform levels up the company’s attack simulation capabilities to remove barriers of entry for security teams. It enables any size organization to automatically validate the performance of security controls, discover high-risk attack paths to critical assets and optimize SOC effectiveness.
