Prioritizing remediation of critical exposures is increasingly challenging given the overwhelming results produced by legacy solutions. With most organizations relying on pre-defined severity classifications, resource constrained security teams are chasing down false positives and minor issues while the most dangerous vulnerabilities continue to expose valuable assets. Without context to discern the exploitability and impact of vulnerabilities in real-world attacks, adversaries will continue to have the upper hand in a race where time matters most.
Adversaries are constantly probing and executing attacks against your perimeter assets. To keep pace, you must beat them to the punch. The Cosmos Adversarial Operations team acts like persistent adversaries — continuously learning about your attack surface, linking findings, and executing attacks against exposed assets — just as targeted attackers would.
Severity classifications rate vulnerabilities based on scoring metrics. While these ratings are integral to vulnerability scanning, they lack client-specific context, leaving your already overburdened security team to sift through an unrealistic number of results to figure out which exposures present real business risk. Cosmos Adversarial Operations removes the guesswork by safely executing initial exploitation to confirm exposures are vulnerable in real-world attack scenarios.
Once an adversary has gained a foothold within the environment, the real impact begins. Anchored in the MITRE ATT&CK framework, the Cosmos Adversarial Operations team safely executes post-exploitation tactics and techniques helping your security team understand the extent to which adversaries could capitalize on susceptible assets, including internal pathways, systems, and data at risk.
Attackers have access to a wide variety of resources to accomplish their objectives. If they can buy it or develop it, you better believe they'll use it. The Cosmos Adversarial Operations team uses the same publicly available toolsets as the bad guys — plus proprietary methods developed over 16 years of conducting offensive security engagements.
Alleviate resources constraints and accelerate skillsets with a dedicated team of ethical hackers at your disposal.

It didn’t take SC Media long to realize Cosmos stood out from the rest of the pack. Awarded best emerging technology, SW Labs in-depth analysis concluded that “Bishop Fox isn’t just selling an Attack Surface Management (ASM) product. They’re offering a continuous offensive security service — the ASM piece merely enables and feeds that service. Think of [Cosmos] as an external penetration test that never ends.”.
Tasked with validating and determining the impact of exposures identified by the Cosmos platform, Adversarial Operators emulate real-world attacks helping security teams confirm the vulnerability of exposures and their potential business impact.
Comprised of highly decorated ethical hacking personnel with backgrounds that include working for the NSA and Department of Defense, Adversarial Operators are consistently recognized for their exploit ingenuity and discovery of new attack methods. Acting as an extension of our client’s security teams, Adversarial Operators dedicate themselves to delivering actionable findings with live support so exposures are addressed before attackers even know they exist.
