Red Teaming

Attack Simulation Services

Go beyond traditional

Secure your applications against real-world vulnerabilities and run your business with confidence by Red Teaming Services.

Red teaming is a defence readiness exercise where different attacks mapped to MITRE ATT&CK framework are executed and responses to which are recorded from the defence team. An undetected attack bypassing security solution and defence team constitutes a successful effort from the red team. This exercise is designed to identify vulnerabilities and find detection &
Response gaps in a company’s security infrastructure.

The terms red team and blue team are often used to refer to cyber warfare in contrast to conventional warfare. War games function as a means of testing for the worst-case scenarios of coordinated, focused attacks by skilled attackers. While testing infrastructure and personnel are common in branches of the military, they are increasingly popular in enterprise, government,
finance, critical infrastructure, and key resources (CIKR) and many other security and IT-focused institutions. Our Red Team exercises collate and analyze intelligent options which can be used by persistent attackers. We also test your existing security framework for any vulnerabilities in real time.

The goal of a red team exercise is not just to identify holes in security, but to train security personnel and management to better defend their infrastructure. If not, everyone agrees on the value of the exercise, it can quickly devolve into defensive posturing and wasted time. After all, you may be asking higher-ups for the time and budget required to fix flaws, the exercise discovers.

    Kick-Off & Rules of Engagement

    Each red team engagement begins with a kick-off call where we’ll discuss the data you’d consider your company’s “crown jewels,” or the most sensitive info our pentesters will try to exfiltrate. The kick-off call is also where we’ll talk about the rules of the engagement and how we’ll ensure there are no / minimal disruptions to your network during our attack. This may mean explicitly avoiding attacks that may cause disruption, such as DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks, or defining what disruption means to you.

    Red Team Deployment

    With a designated start date agreed upon, we’ll begin our test. Our skilled Red Team will divide into mini attack teams, each targeting a different area of your business— from one team for internal networks to another for wireless vulnerabilities, etc. It’s this holistic, no holds barred approach that allows us to work in synchronicity, attacking all angles of your security infrastructure.

    How long will the Red Team pentest last?

    You may be used to traditional penetration tests lasting about a week. A Red Teaming goes much more in depth, with the typical Red Team project extending from three weeks to a month— sometimes even longer depending on the company size and their systems’ complexity. A typical engagement spreads across 4-6 weeks of engagement as seen in our past experiences to produce acceptable results.

    During the Attack

    Our team will be available 24/7 on a dedicated channel, created just for your team. This important line of communication can be used to confirm that detected actions. Although you won’t be made aware when we breach your security and gain access to the target data, we notify you immediately if we find any critical vulnerabilities, and again when the test is wrapping up. We also note any changes we’ve made to the environment and inform your primary point-of-contact at the end of the testing phase, so they can be promptly removed.

    Reviewing Your Red Team Pentest Results

    After our Red Team engagement, we’ll compile a robust report of our findings— what we’re proud to call the industry’s gold standard of pentest reports for our detailed walkthrough of the attack. This comprehensive, easy-to-explain document will break down exactly what our team did, what we discovered and what we gained access to. Most importantly, we’ll provide you with mitigation strategies, straight from our seniored pentesters.

    Onsite Attack & Testing

    Our Red Team utilizes many different types of tests to perform our services. Each type of testing that we utilize as part of our protocol has similar attention to detail. Threatsys Red Team can perform physical penetration testing as part of a larger Red Team service or as a Stand-Alone engagement. By engaging us for this type of assessment, you can find gaps in your physical defenses and mitigate them before they can turn into real attacks (cyber or otherwise).


Red Team Approach to Assess your Cyber Defenses

  • Target Intelligence Gathering

    Drive reconnaissance missions to gather information associated with the target system in scope through various tools to know the target’s security structure, policies, systems, device specifications, configuration and restrictions.

  • Probe and Attack

    Identify the zone of attack by pinpointing the weakest link. Plan the attack, choose the mode of delivery and sustain long term presence by leveraging recon intelligence to control outcomes.

  • Asset Access

    Recognize security compromises and gain access to either the user or root accounts. Once done, progress to gain higher levels of access by containing other devices and systems.

  • Access Sustenance

    Exercise advancement and stealth processes to determine deficiencies, alter configuration files and disable services or features, establish control privileges and move silently between devices and systems, modify logs and deflect security events.

  • Vulnerability Assessment Reports

    The reporting phase of external and internal security assessment consists of aggregating the discovered and exploited vulnerabilities in a technical report that thoroughly describes risks, vulnerability descriptions, remediation steps, root cause categorization and remediation plans.

Testing that reflects a true attack. Let’s get started

Having grown from a start-up to a mid-market company, our cybersecurity needed to be tightened beyond basic vulnerability checks. Threatsys took on the challenge of Red Teaming to find the holes. They did a fantastic job, showing us how to be secure now and into the future. Thanks to Threatsys, we’re ready to grow again!
