Test and Strengthen Your Security, Before an Attack

Cysiv offers a full range of Red Team Services, from identifying weaknesses in your applications, systems, and existing security controls to assessing your ability to detect, prevent, and respond to a cyberattack.

Penetration Testing

Find and fix your vulnerabilities before an attacker exploits them.

Cysiv security experts simulate a real-world attack to discover vulnerabilities in your systems, applications, team, and defenses that a real attacker could exploit. Get a clearer picture of your organization’s overall security posture through:

Application Penetration Testing

Determine whether your mobile or web applications, websites, web APIs, and SaaS applications have exploitable vulnerabilities.

External Penetration Testing

Test the effectiveness of your perimeter security controls in preventing and detecting attacks, identify weaknesses in internet-facing assets, and determine if you have exploitable vulnerabilities that could expose data to an attacker.

Internal Penetration Testing

Identify how far an attacker can laterally move through your network after breaching your external defenses and determine what damage the attacker could achieve with initial access to your network.

Red Team Exercises

Be prepared for a real security incident, without the risks.

The Cysiv Red Team Exercise simulates a multi-layered cyberattack that targets an agreed upon set of objectives. The exercise and assessment let you experience a real-world attack and your team’s readiness to detect and respond to it, without any risk.

Red Team / Blue Team Exercise

Attack, defend, and learn.

In this exercise, the Red Team plays the role of the attacker and the Blue Team is the defender. The Cysiv Red Team will test the effectiveness of your security program and the ability of your internal security team (the Blue Team) to stop simulated attacks.
