Red Team Operations

Test your ability to detect and respond to threats with a real-world cyber-attack simulation

Of all the available types of cyber security assessment, a simulated targeted cyber-attack is as close as you can get to understanding how prepared your organization is to defend against a skilled and persistent hacker.

A Red Team Operation from Bashtell is designed to far exceed the remit of traditional security test by rigorously challenging the effectiveness of technology, personnel and processes to detect and respond to a highly focussed, multi-faceted attack conducted over a period of weeks and months.

Comprehensively challenge your security defences

Today’s persistent cybercriminals will exploit any and all vulnerabilities to compromise your organization. Without knowledge of the latest attacker tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), however, weaknesses across your IT networks could reside undetected.

A Red Team Operation from Bashtell is designed to exceed the remit of a penetration test to provide an in-depth, multi-layered assessment of your organization’s defences. This simulated targeted cyber-attack utilises the latest hacking tools and TTPs to achieve agreed objectives and thoroughly assesses the effectiveness of your technology, personnel and processes.

To maximise authenticity, it’s recommended that a Red Team attack simulation is performed with the knowledge of as few key stakeholders as possible.
