Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART)

Prioritize Initial Access Points That Would Be Targeted First By Running Frequent And Consistent Testing

"Traditional 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

Multiply Red Team Capacity, Prioritize Risk, And Eliminate Access Points.

You probably believe like we do that cyber attackers have an edge. If you are seeking a way to displace multiple tools and reduce repetitive manual efforts but still gain the benefits of continuous red teaming and penetration testing on your entire attack surface then you want a continuous automated red teaming (CART) capability. 

Our Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART) platform gives you multi-stage attack playbooks to mimic a real attacker and accurately pinpoint prioritized vulnerabilities that would be targeted first. Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART) delivers shorter mean time to remediation (MTTR) and increased depth and breadth of coverage so you can focus on your mission of keeping attackers out and keeping IT/OT services running smoothly and securely.

Gartner says “Nation-state actors and criminal organizations operate with a level of sophistication that surpasses the preventative and detection capabilities of most security and risk management teams.”


How FireCompass Helps

All in a Single Platform – Continuous & Automated

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

External Attack Surface Management (EASM)

FireCompass runs continuously and indexes the deep, dark, and surface web using the same reconnaissance techniques as threat actors do & automatically discovers an organization's dynamic digital attack surface. Followed by active validation to eliminate false positives.

Attack Playbooks & Threat Hunting

FireCompass attack playbooks help democratize red teaming by providing threat hunters with detailed and programmatic information on how ransomware susceptibility assessments, web applications testing, credential stuffing, and objective-based campaigns would be run by attackers.

Attack Validation & Prioritized Risks

Validation on unauthenticated attacks, web application attacks, stolen credentialed attacks and social engineering attacks on the discovered digital surface will deliver risk prioritized from the attacker’s perspective to help your team focus on accelerating triaged mitigation strategies.

External Attack Surface Management

Failure to conduct frequent & extensive attacker-like reconnaissance leaves low-hanging fruits easily exploited by adversaries. The FireCompass platform works by doing:

  • Zero-Knowledge fast internet-based recon on 3 Billion+ IPs using deep, dark and surface web OSINT data collections
  • Uses attacker-like MITRE ATT&CK Reconnaissance techniques as threat actors would to collect data from threat intel feeds and correlate them with active scans
  • AI/ML driven automated asset attribution to organizational business context
  • Active validation eliminates false positives and accurately attributes business context
  • Delta Reporting delivers situational awareness to stakeholders about the attack surface

Attack Playbooks & Threat Hunting

Find likely attack paths by emulating the most recent threat actors with a platform that never sleeps. Use ready-made playbooks to launch multi-stage attacks for ransomware susceptibility assessments, LOG4J, CISA Alerts for Known Exploited Vulnerabilities, critical infrastructure attacks, web application attacks, stolen credential attacks, social engineering attacks and more on every asset discovered in your digital surface to validate your security posture and accelerate risk mitigation. 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 flavours
  • Conduct DAST and OWASP Top 10 attacks on web based applications
  • Perform active social engineering attacks with phishing playbooks

Attack Validation & Prioritized Risks

Continuous validation on unauthenticated attacks, web application attacks, stolen credentialed attacks and social engineering attacks on the discovered digital surface will deliver risk prioritized from the attacker’s perspective to help your team focus on accelerating triaged mitigation strategies. This reduces mean time to detect and repair. Unlike simulated attacks, real-world attack emulation validates your security controls.

  • Eliminate 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.
