Put your defenses to the ultimate test

Red Teaming & Readiness

We emulate your adversary — their motivations and goals, how they operate, and what tools they use, based on your needs — whether that be a full ’outside-in’ or ‘internal breach’ scenario. Our mission is to help you get a holistic view of your ability to defend against a real-world, sophisticated attack.

Red Teaming & Readiness

Our Red Team will become your best friend by emulating your worst enemy.

Adversaries aren't constricted to timeframes or pathways - your security testing shouldn't be either.

Our Red Team testing puts your security defenses to the ultimate test leveraging the same tactics, techniques, and procedures as skilled real-world adversaries. Leaving nothing to chance, our multi-point methodology not only tests information systems but expands to cover physical and social engineering avenues that emulate the actions of adversaries determined to accomplish their objectives.

Operating covertly, our testers will attempt to bypass your prevention and detection controls illuminating technical and systemic weaknesses that a targeted adversary could capitalize on. Ultimately, our engagement aims to put your response capabilities under the microscope. Once we've established presence inside the network, it's a race against your Blue Team's ability to not only identify our actions but shut down and eliminate persistence mechanisms before we can accomplish our objectives.

Upon completion of the engagement, your team will be armed with unparalleled insight that facilitates corrective actions across the entirety of your security controls. In addition, you'll demonstrate to regulators, third parties, and business stakeholders your commitment to securing business operations against the highest industry standards.

With Bishop Fox as your partner for Red Teaming, you'll benefit from:

  • End-to-end attack scenarios: As an objective-based exercise, Red Team operations give you valuable context into material impacts of discovered vulnerabilities — highlighting the paths leveraged by adversaries to compromise your company's crown jewels - all while avoiding detection.
  • Full scope testing: While other security assessment methodologies are focused mostly on information systems, Red Team operations can be expanded in scope to include physical and social engineering attack paths - leaving no avenue of attack uncovered.
  • Collaborative defense: As the sparring partner for your Blue Team, our Red Team engagements go beyond testing prevention and detection capabilities evaluating your ability to respond and neutralize an attacker before they can accomplish their objectives.

Continuous Attack Emulation

Interested in exploring continuous offensive options? Meet Cosmos.

Cosmos continuously discovers and maps your ever-changing attack surface and identifies dangerous vulnerabilities targeted by attackers. By creatively (and extensively) leveraging automation, Cosmos eliminates false positives to surface true exposures that are then tested and validated by our dedicated team of operators.

With Cosmos, operators continuously emulate real-world attacks, safely exploiting exposures and executing post-exploitation activities that uncover internal pathways, systems, and data that are susceptible to attack. They deliver deep insights into findings and conduct on-demand retesting to validate remediation procedures and accelerate the closure of attack windows.

Be Confident You're Ready

Shrink the gaps in your security program.
