Benefits of Red and Purple Team assessments
Achieve greater awareness
Gain an awareness into your organisation’s resilience in the face of a determined cyber intrusion. You will achieve invaluable insight into your incident detection and response capabilities under real-world cyber-attack conditions.
Engaging in Red Teaming demonstrates a commitment to commercial partners that your organisation has a mature cyber security posture and that you prioritise safeguarding critical data.
Cyber-attacks are among the most significant risks organisations face. Red Teaming helps you understand the extent to which you could be vulnerable to a real-world attack, so you can implement risk mitigation strategies to reduce your exposure.
Implement actionable remediations
At the completion of the exercise you will receive a Red Team Attack Simulation Report highlighting vulnerabilities, along with recommended remediations. This enables you to address areas of weakness in your defences, so your organisation will be prepared to detect and respond to future cyber threats.
Purple Teaming is an ideal training exercise for your organisation’s internal security team. They will have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in incident detection and response. The exercise provides an opportunity to identify areas where additional training and skills enhancement may be required.
Red and Purple Teaming overview
A Red Teaming exercise is an attempt to breach your organisation’s defences via any means possible. It replicates real-world attack scenarios in which determined adversaries look to exploit any vulnerabilities in your applications, network or physical environment.
A Purple Teaming exercise brings together offensive and defensive security. Whilst our Red Team looks for ways to breach your systems, your internal security Blue Team looks for ways to stop us in our tracks.
- Do you want to rigorously test your environment to gain a thorough understanding into how an adversary may breach your defences?
- Do you want to achieve a comprehensive awareness of your organisation’s risk exposure?
- Are you keen to simulate real-world attack scenarios so your internal security team can develop their defensive capabilities?
Red and Purple Teaming can help you achieve all these outcomes and more.
What is Red Teaming?
Adopting an adversarial approach, Red Teaming goes beyond standard penetration testing. By simulating the tactics used by real-world attackers, it seeks to identify and exploit any gaps in your defences. Ideal for organisations with a mature security posture, periodic Red Teaming helps further enhance your preparedness to face any determined cyber threat.
We adopt a variety of offensive tactics, including:
- Reconnaissance using open-source intelligence (OSINT)
- Attempted physical intrusions and social engineering attacks
- Attempted breaches of your application layer
- Attacks against your networks
What is Purple Teaming?
Purple Teaming is a collaboration between our offensive Red Team and your defensive security personnel, or Blue Team.
The objective is to uplift your internal security team’s readiness to respond to a real-world cyber-attack. Throughout the simulation, the Blue Team will gain experience analysing logs, evaluating attacks and developing appropriate responses.
This enables your internal security team to gain a critical understanding of gaps in your security posture and helps identify areas for capability enhancement.
