Continuous Automated Pen Testing

5x Increase In Pentest Frequency And Asset Coverage

"Traditional Pen Testing and Red teaming involves multiple tools and manual effort. FireCompass eliminates the need for repetitive manual effort.. significantly helped to improve delivery speed & the depth-breadth of testing.."
-CEO, Security Innovation

Discover 100% Assets, Find Critical Risks In 72 Hours & Validate Security Controls.

Traditional pentesting covers only 20% of assets, lacks scalability, and usually done once or twice a year.

  • 20% of the assets covered: Traditional Pen Testing will be able to cover only 20% of the assets in a single iteration. However, the majority of attacks happen on Peripheral assets i.e UAT Environments, Exposed Cloud Assets, Exposed Critical Network Services, Exposed Databases, Marketing Websites etc.
  • Yearly validation of Critical Risks & Security Controls: Vulnerability Analysis reports and CVE exposure on daily or weekly basis create Alert Fatigue. Similarly, Weak or Leaked credentials can be exposed at any point of time. New variants of Ransomware evolve on a weekly or monthly basis. All of these risks will be validated yearly by a traditional pentest. 
  • Non scalable and repeatable: Traditional Pen Testing is carried out by Human Security Analysts. It will cost 12x more to scale the traditional pentest to monthly frequency. As per industry stats, the world needs 2M additional Security Professionals to meet the current industry needs. Additionally, without automation, human security professionals will be bored and unhappy.

How FireCompass Helps

Single Platform – Continuous Recon, Risk Hunting and Attack Emulation

No Interruptions. No Deployment. No Hardware. No Agents.


FireCompass Recon Platform conducts continuous probing, captures banners, fingerprints services, and utilizes advanced graph algorithms for contextual attribution. It indexes domains, subdomains, IPs, service banners, web app pages, and public code, creating a vast searchable graph of entities and relationships, forming a precise Attack Surface.

Risk Hunting

FireCompass Platform uses continuous risk hunting playbooks to identify critical risks in 24-72 hours. The platform utilizes Multi-Stage Hunting Playbooks to launch over 30,000 attacks and checks on your Network, Web, Cloud, and other assets from our geographically distributed sensor network. We continuously test 100% of your assets to uncover all security risks.

Attack Emulation

Firecompass Platform validates risks and security controls through safe attacks and exploits on the exposed attack surface. It utilizes adversary emulation playbooks grounded in industry and threat intelligence. Employing multi-stage attack trees, the platform orchestrates attacks to validate exploitability and assess security controls effectively.

Continuous Recon

Your Attack Surface is constantly changing, and Adversaries are constantly evolving. FireCompass platform performs continuous recon to discover 100% of the Attack Surface. The FireCompass platform works by doing:

  • FireCompass Recon Platform conducts continuous probing, captures banners, fingerprints services, and utilizes advanced graph algorithms for contextual attribution. It indexes domains, subdomains, IPs, service banners, web app pages, and public code, creating a vast searchable graph of entities and relationships, forming a precise Attack Surface.
  • Detect Delta changes in your Attack Surface to perform continuous risk hunting.

Continuous Risk Hunting

FireCompass Platform identifies critical risks within 24-72 hours and covers 100% of your assets. FireCompass provides varied risk hunting playbooks, mimicking recent threat actors through automation. Utilize these ready-made playbooks to launch multi-stage attacks, including ransomware, LOG4J, CISA Alerts, critical infrastructure, web applications, stolen credentials, and social engineering. The FireCompass platform provides attack and hunting playbooks to:

  • Increase Automation & Faster Analysis to free your penetration testers to focus on more challenging work
  • Emulate latest threat actors such as Chinese State-Sponsored actors, Russian Threat Actors & more
  • Evaluate susceptibility to multiple ransomware flavors
  • Conduct DAST and OWASP Top 10 attacks on web based applications
  • Perform active social engineering attacks with phishing playbooks

Continuous Attack Emulation

FireCompass platform uses multi stage attack trees to orchestrate real adversary emulation, exploit CVEs to validate risks, and credential attacks to identify credential exposure, and gains initial access point to validate security controls. The FireCompass Attack Emulation has multiple benefits such as :

  • Elimination of alert fatigue by only responding to validated attacks
  • Adversary-based prioritization that validates attack methods nation-state actors or cybercriminal groups are known to use
  • Prioritize high-risk vulnerabilities that are most likely to be exploited
  • Attack validation also filters out false positives, if the attack fails, so will attackers
  • Access & improve the effectiveness of your security tools, SOC, and managed security partners

Frequently Asked Questions

Automated Red Teaming is a continuous, automated process of testing the security of a system by simulating the activities of an adversary with the goal of uncovering weaknesses in the system. It uses a combination of automated tools and processes such as vulnerability scans, port scans, and other scanning techniques to detect potential vulnerabilities. Manual red teaming and penetration testing cannot be continuous processes due to limitations in time and budget and expertise. Automated Red Teaming is also more effective at uncovering weaknesses that may have been overlooked by manual testing. Automated Red Teaming can be used to supplement manual red teaming and penetration testing, providing a more comprehensive security evaluation.
  •   •   Increased Efficiency: FireCompass’ automated processes can help streamline your red teaming efforts and maximize your team’s efficiency. FireCompass can automate tasks such as assessment scoping, data collection, data analysis, prioritization, and reporting, allowing your team to focus on the more important aspects of red teaming and blue teaming.
  •   •   Improved Coverage: FireCompass’ automated red teaming tools can provide comprehensive coverage of your IT environment. By automating the data collection and analysis process, FireCompass can help you identify threats and vulnerabilities more quickly across your entire IT infrastructure.
  •   •   Enhanced Visibility: FireCompass’ automated tools can provide detailed visibility into your IT environment. Automated data collection and analysis can give you a more comprehensive view of your IT infrastructure, allowing you to identify potential threats and vulnerabilities more quickly.
  •   •   Reduced Costs: Automated red teaming with FireCompass can help reduce costs by eliminating the need to hire and train additional personnel. Automation can also help reduce the time and effort required for manual tasks, resulting in significant cost savings.
FireCompass automates red teaming by providing a platform that allows users to define and execute attack scenarios and tests via predefined and custom playbooks. It operates on a “continuous attack model” that monitors and tests systems on an ongoing basis. FireCompass can detect and alert on malicious activities, such as lateral movement and privilege escalation. It also provides a suite of tools for performing reconnaissance, exploitation, and post-exploitation activities. This helps organizations to detect and respond to potential threats before they become a problem and can validate blue team processes that detect these activities.
Automated Red Teaming can improve compliance by providing organizations with continuous monitoring of their networks, systems, and data. This helps to identify any potential risks or weaknesses in their security posture, allowing them to take action to address any issues and ensure that they are meeting their compliance requirements. Automated Red Teaming can also provide regular reports on the state of the organization’s security posture, making it easy to track progress and ensure compliance.
Automated Red Teaming can improve Blue Teaming by providing a more efficient and effective way to test security controls. Automation provides a consistent and repeatable way to simulate real-world attacks, which can help Blue Teams identify vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, or other weaknesses that would be difficult to find manually. Automated Red Teaming also helps Blue Teams better understand the adversary’s tactics, techniques, and procedures, which can help them better prepare for and respond to real-world attacks.
