Continuous Automated Red Teaming

Launch continuous safe attacks that identify blind spots before they are exploited

"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

Is it Important to Launch Continuous Safe Attacks to Identify Blind Spots ?

Only the most advanced organizations have had the ability to conduct red teaming and testing a few times a year on just a subset of their assets due to the complexity of the technology and the significant financial and time investment. One area where cyber attackers have an edge is that organizations test “some” of their assets “some of the time” whereas hackers are attacking all of the assets all of the time. To stay ahead you need a platform that can mimic a real attacker, to help identify attack paths before bad actors do, in other words have continuous red teaming capability. 
 
Here are the risks that a continuous automated red teaming (CART) platform mitigates:
 
  • Detect vulnerabilities in your security controls helping to prevent the risk of the future breach (empowering blue teams)
 
  • Measure how security defenses will hold up to a real-world attack (you need real-world attacks with multi-stage attack capabilities )
 
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: Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART)

Runs Continuously . No Software . No Hardware . No Additional Resources

Continuous RECON & Attack Surface Discovery

FireCompass runs continuously and indexes the deep, dark, and surface web using the same elaborate reconnaissance techniques as nation-state actors & automatically discovers an organization's dynamic digital attack surface.

Authorize Scope & Launch Safe-Attacks

Authorize the scope where you want to launch the attacks and find out vulnerabilities & possible Attack Paths before attackers do. The attacks include network attacks, application attacks, and social engineering attacks on the discovered digital surface to identify breach and attack paths.

Prioritize Risks & Remediate

FireCompass helps to prioritize digital risks to focus efforts on the vulnerabilities that are most likely to be exploited. The dashboard summarizes the high, medium, and low priority risks and the recommends mitigation steps.

Continuous RECON & Attack Surface Discovery

FireCompass runs continuously and indexes the deep, dark and surface web using the same elaborate reconnaissance techniques as nation-state actors. The platform automatically discovers an organization’s ever-changing digital attack surface, including unknown exposed databases, cloud buckets, code leaks, exposed credentials, risky cloud assets, and open ports, etc. FireCompass product does the below:
 
  • Fast internet-based recon on 3 Billion+  IPs using a headless browser
  • Deep, dark and surface web OSINT data collection
  • The algorithm uses elaborate recon techniques as nation-state actors to collect data from threat intel feeds etc.

Authorize Scope & Launch Safe-Attacks

Authorize the scope where you want to launch the attacks and find out vulnerabilities and possible Attack Paths before attackers do. FireCompass engine then launches multi-stage attacks, which includes network attacks, application attacks, and social engineering attacks, on the discovered digital surface to identify breach and attack paths. FireCompass product helps to:
 
  • Conduct port scanning & network VAConduct DAST and OWASP top 10 attacks on web based applications
  • Conduct SAST  attacks on mobile applications
  • Active social engineering attacks
  • Cloud attacks 
  • Objective based attacks 

Step 1: Authorize The Scope

Authorize the scope where you want to launch the attacks

Step 2: Launch Safe-Attacks

Launch safe-attacks & multi-stage attacks

Prioritize Risks & Remediate

The dashboard summarizes the high, medium, and low priority risks and the recommended mitigation steps. Launching safe- attacks just like a real attacker helps you to discover holes in your perimeter and find out how your defenses hold up against a real-life hack across people, process & technology.
 
  • Prioritize high-risk vulnerabilities that are most likely to be exploited
  • Access & improve the effectiveness of your security tools, SOC, and managed security partners

Risk based Prioritization To Focus on The Most Important

FireCompass identifies, analyzes, and prioritizes digital risks to focus efforts on the vulnerabilities that are most likely to be exploited

What is Red Teaming?

Red teaming is a multifaceted attack simulation to assess the effectiveness of an organization’s security protocols. In layman’s terms, red team hacking is a type of ethical hacking that probes for potential security gaps that can provide unauthorized access to people/groups with malicious intent.

During the red teaming process, the cyber red team simulates different attack scenarios meant to expose any physical, network, or human vulnerabilities to an organization’s network.

How does Red Teaming help?

Red teaming is born out of a premise comparable to that of a sports adage that says, “The best offense is a good defense.” Since unauthorized access to a private network can be affected in hundreds of ways,  red teaming ensures that the defense mechanisms in place can withstand attacks from virtually all the possible ways. Red teaming helps organizations to test their defense and response capabilities.

So red teaming is not just about finding gaps in your defensive security protocols; it also provides a framework through which you can strengthen the defenses.

Who Benefits from Red Teaming?

Organizations of all sizes can benefit from red team exercise. Small organizations might think that they have no use of red teaming since they believe they have nothing valuable for them to be the target for unauthorized intrusions, but cyber-attacks are not exclusively interested in sensitive information; some bad actors might turn your systems into botnets, crypto miners or use them as relays for their malicious activities targeting other systems on the internet.

Why Red Team with FireCompass?

FireCompass offers Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART) that focuses on enterprise security by continuous recon & automated red teaming, helping you to test “all” of your assets “all” of the time.

FireCompass continuously indexes and monitors the deep, dark, and surface web using nation-state grade reconnaissance techniques. The platform automatically discovers an organization’s digital attack surface. It launches multi-stage safe attacks, mimicking a real attacker, to help identify breaches and attack paths otherwise missed by conventional tools.
