Our customized threat modeling identifies vulnerabilities within your security posture that puts your most valuable organizational and client data — the crown jewels — at risk.
Our security audits and vulnerability assessments are based on industry standards and best practices to assess weaknesses in your cloud environment and network, as well as mobile and web-based apps.
Our sophisticated testing services delve into your network, smart devices and other systems to expose critical security deficiencies.
We exist to make your systems more sound, more secure and more . . . unbreakable. And we are relentless.
We envision a world where the bad guys never win, your system is secure and your most important data and
organizational assets are safe. Until that day comes, we work with you to detect your system weaknesses, through the eyes of a hacker.
We then attack your systems as an adversary would, while remaining 100% on your team − committed to working with you until your
security posture is standing strong. Learn more about our process and methodology and how we can support you in achieving unbreakable.
We measure success by how much your security posture improves from start-to-finish. Sure, our consultants love ripping apart your system like a malicious threat actor would, but our goal is to help you improve − not to make you look bad (like so many other security testers). We promise to partner with you to ensure that your project succeeds!
We approach our projects from two different angles. First, we apply our engineering and system admin background to understand how
your systems were built. Next, we reverse our mindsets to think like hackers do. We think about what mistakes or shortcuts may have
been made during development and attack them by using the same tools as hackers.
We've built − and are continuing to update − robust playbooks for many different technologies. These playbooks include
extensive documentation on security testing tools and techniques based on our consultants' many years of expertise.
What makes us different is our organized, consistent, and thorough approach to our projects. The technical challenge of security
testing can be a lot of fun, but many testers lose track of the end goal and become consumed by trying to tackle one specific
vulnerability. We have proven, established processes in place to ensure that we stay focused on the right things and cover all of the
areas we say we will.
Our consultants layer creativity over their expertise when it comes to chaining attacks to get into your system. Many of our consultants
have experience building and managing IT systems at Fortune 500 organizations, so we know where to find the weakest links!
A customized threat model will give you a clear picture of the risk posed by attacks against your system or product, so you
can make effective decisions regarding the appropriate level of security to incorporate. We facilitate a collaborative, brainstorming
threat model session to identify what assets you need to protect and what could go wrong protecting them.
Then we think like malicious threat actors (hackers) and plan how we would actually break into your products or systems. We don't
just think in terms of the intended use of your products or systems, we think about how we could abuse them to get to the crown
Many security testers want to just jump right in and start looking for vulnerabilities, but we take a disciplined, methodical
look around first to make sure we know everything before diving in.
Our thorough reconnaissance phase leaves no stone unturned as we inventory your organization, application, and/or product,
looking for potential areas of weakness. Like a detective at a crime scene, we often find clues that don't mean much at first but
end up being the key that unlocks the solution!
During the vulnerability discovery phase, we sweep through the entire system looking for areas of weakness. We incorporate the
knowledge we gained during the threat modeling and recon phases into our attack plan, and break into the system using the same
techniques as the hackers.
Our custom-configured vulnerability discovery system, combined with our consultants' tenacity, create the final list of targets
to attack. We analyze all of the vulnerabilities we discover to eliminate false positives and ensure they are applicable to you.
You will never receive a rebranded automated vulnerability scan report from us!
Once your system's weaknesses are discovered, we use custom-developed and off-the-shelf exploit code to dig deeper into your
organization, system or product. This often provides access to areas never intended for public use, leading to the discovery of
additional weaknesses and secrets.
We also use proof-of-concept exploits to help demonstrate the feasibility and risk associated with certain vulnerabilities.
We find this is a very effective way to gain upper management support for closing your holes!
We realize reporting is the most important part of any security assessment. It's one thing to chain several complicated exploits
together to gain control over a system, but that act is worthless if your security consultant can't communicate how the attack was
executed, what the risk is to you, and how you can reduce the risk of a successful attack.
Our reports clearly explain the issue, how we attacked it, how it might be remediated, and where this risk fits into your personalized threat model. We incorporate an executive summary with a comprehensive technical walk-through (including demos
where appropriate) to meet the needs of your diverse audiences.
Now that you have the report, it's important to be able to implement it. We will consult with your management team to help
prioritize recommendations, so you can maximize your resources to most effectively reduce your risk.
We will also proactively coach your engineers to help evaluate potential fixes. We want your retest to go as smoothly as
Now that you've completed the security test and invested in the resources to fix the issues, how can you assure the project
sponsors, executive teams, company boards, and your customers that the risks have been mitigated properly?
During a retest, our consultants will verify that your fixes are sufficient to reduce the risks discovered during the security
test. We include this essential step in our process because we believe it's important to give you peace of mind when we're all
done. Besides, you put in all that work to make your system more secure, so why not have your final report reflect that? We will
leave you with a comprehensive report that clearly resolves all the questions and concerns.
You might not know how at-risk your security posture is until somebody breaks in . . . and the consequences of a break in could be big. Don't let small fractures in your security protocols lead to a breach. We'll act like a hacker and confirm where you're most vulnerable. As your adversarial allies, we'll work with you to proactively protect your assets. Schedule a consultation with our Principal Security Consultant to discuss your project goals today.
