ScanWave Red Team Overview
Traditional vulnerability assessments and penetration tests are an important way to assess the security posture of your organization’s IT networks, looking for vulnerabilities and exposures that can be leveraged as targets of opportunity by a wide range of attackers.
However, these types of assessments alone do not adequately simulate attacks from dedicated adversaries who are intent on breaching your network. During an adversary emulation, or red team exercise, our security experts will launch a realistic attempt to exploit your environment to gain access to systems that would enable us to impact the critical functions necessary for your operations.
How it Works?
This simulated attack is carried out in a controlled manner to ensure that your operations are not adversely affected, while still providing valuable information regarding gaps in your preventive or detective controls that could allow an adversary to harm your organization.
The attacks utilize real-world adversary tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) that represent a genuine threat to the critical functions of your organization.
ScanWave Red Team Benefits
1Evaluate your response to attack: Learn how prepared your organization is to respond to a targeted attack designed to test the effectiveness of people and technology.
2Identify and classify security risks: Learn whether systems, data and other critical assets are at risk and how easily they could be targeted by adversaries.
3Uncover hidden vulnerabilities: By mirroring the latest adversarial tactics, red reaming can help identify hidden vulnerabilities that attackers might seek to exploit.
4Address identified exposures: Receive important post-operation support to address any vulnerabilities identified and mitigate the risk of suffering real-life attacks.
5Prioritize future investments: Better understand your organization's security weaknesses and ensure that future investments deliver the greatest benefit.
ScanWave Red Team Operations
Each adversary emulation exercise begins by analyzing available threat intelligence regarding adversaries who may actively target your organization and the TTPs that such adversaries would be likely to leverage.
The sources of intelligence used will vary from client to client but will always include industry-standard information such as MITRE’s ATT&CK Matrices and other open-source intelligence related to global and regional threat actors and the tools and techniques they utilize. Our team will also perform open-source intelligence collection and reconnaissance to create a target profile of your organization.
Based on collected threat intelligence, our team will devise a series of attack scenarios against your critical functions. Using the agreed-upon tactics, echniques, and procedures aligned to those likely to be used by real-world threat actors, our team of security experts will conduct an offensive campaign against the identified critical functions of your organization.
