Advanced attack resilience

Securely placing your organisation in a stronger position to prepare, detect, deter and recover from a real-world attack, should you be targeted.

Holistic view of deployed security

In the window between manual assessments, our testing platform will continuously test your networks and alert you of any possible security vulnerabilities.

Review effectiveness of incident response mechanisms

Testing will expose and assess internal response mechanisms and ‘actions upon’ in the case of any detection of the attack.

Continuous improvement

The output from any simulated attack can help improve internal business and user awareness, with output able to be utilised in internal training programmes, and where relevant, support compliance requirements.

Testing security procedures and practices

Providing evidence of what policies and procedures failed or indeed protected the organisation during the attack lifecycle.

Full range of cutting-edge hacker techniques

Rootshell Security will work with you, professionally and ethically, to determine your organisation’s resilience to an attack.

What is a red team assessment?

A red team assessment is the ultimate way to test your organisation’s ability to detect and respond to cyber-attacks. Using the same methods as real-world threat actors, a red team assessment launches a safe but realistic attack simulation to assess how prepared your organisation is at each stage of the attack lifecycle.

Red team services are different from penetration testing services, which aim to identify as many exploitable vulnerabilities as possible.

A red team assessment puts your security techniques, processes, and personnel to the test. You will gain full visibility of your security strategy’s strengths and weaknesses, empowering you to improve your defences.

Our in-depth, intelligence-driven red team assessment is tailored to your organisation and offered as an ongoing subscription to support you against ever-evolving cyber threats.

What is the purpose of a red team assessment?

Red team services assess how well your organisation would perform at each stage of a cyber attack, from reconnaissance to exploitation. You will gain extensive insight into the status of your attack surface and the effectiveness of your security techniques, processes, and personnel.

By conducting a red team assessment you will test the following:

  • Resilience of your attack surface
  • Effectiveness of your threat detection techniques
  • Efficiency of your response processes
  • Awareness of your personnel

What is the difference between a penetration test and a red team assessment?

Both penetration tests and red team assessments aim to improve an organisation’s security defences by emulating the techniques of a real-world threat actor. But the format and methods of the assessments differ.

The benefits of Red team security testing

How are Red team security assessments carried out?

This could include privilege escalation, data exfiltration, or obtaining the credentials of senior personnel. Our experienced consultants can advise what goal would be most suitable for your organisation.

Once we have agreed on a goal for your red team assessment, we carry it out in four steps:

Frequently Asked Questions about red team assessments

Red team services are carried out in four stages.

Firstly, reconnaissance is carried out to gather as much information about your organisation as possible.

Then, we leverage our intelligence to launch a simulated attack on your organisation. This could include techniques such as email phishing, physical ingress, or Command and Control techniques, to gain access to your network.

Once we have established a foothold, we aim to achieve the agreed objective of your red team assessment; for example, data exfiltration.

Finally, we provide you with clear reports of how well your organisation is performing at each phase of the assessment.

We utilise a wide range of hacking techniques to carry out red teaming. This includes email phishing, SMiShing (SMS phishing), physical ingress, or Command and Control activities.

Both red and blue teams are can be considered as types security assessments, but a red team aims to breach an organisation, whereas a blue team aims to defend it. The activities of a blue team include network monitoring, risk assessments, and threat detection.

Penetration tests are usually short term engagements that focus on exploiting as many vulnerabilities as possible within an organisation’s attack vector. Red team assessments are more in depth, long term, and continuous assessments, that utilise a broad range of tactics to infiltrate an organisation. The aim of a red team assessment is not only to identify vulnerabilities, but to test an organisation’s ability to detect and respond to an attack.

Our highly experienced CREST-certified testers carry out your red team assessment to the highest quality standards, so you can rest assured that no disruption to your organisation will be caused.

Red teaming assesses how your well organisation would perform at each stage of a cyber attack. You will gain extensive insight into the status of your attack surface and effectiveness of your security techniques, processes, and personnel.
