Red Teaming

From phishing to network exploitation, our red team assessments give you the upper hand against opportunistic threat actors. Improve your cyber defence with scenario-based and multi-layered attack simulations, to reveal weaknesses you didn’t know existed. Our red teaming service includes tailored follow-up sessions to discuss the findings, as well as an in-depth workshop to prioritize remediation efforts, and level-up your security strategy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is red teaming?

A red team assessment is a goal-based adversarial activity performed by penetration testers to get an in-depth view of your organization from the perspective of a threat actor. The purpose of the assessment is to demonstrate how real-world attackers can combine exploits to steal your data and sensitive information.

What’s the difference between red teaming and penetration testing?

Red Teaming places your organization’s security team close to a real security incident to test incident response. Penetration testers, on the other hand, are more geared towards identifying existing vulnerabilities, and applying a more general or holistic approach to testing.

What is the purpose of a red team?

The goal of red teaming is to improve your security by highlighting weaknesses in security processes and procedures. Red teaming drives decision-making on strategy and budget via specific, actionable, and in-depth findings.

Who should use red teaming?

Any security conscious business, especially one that adheres to local and industry regulations and compliance standards, can benefit from red teaming.

What is the difference between red teaming and blue teaming?

Red teams are offensive security professionals who are experts in attacking systems and breaking defenses. Blue teams are defensive security professionals responsible for maintaining the internal network against all cyber attacks and threats.
