Red Team Operations

Simulated attacks through a red team engagement enhance your information security program. NetSPI’s red team operations put your organization’s security controls, security policies, incident response, and cybersecurity training to the test.

Our Red Team Operations

Our red team operations aim to gain unauthorized access to your environment while avoiding detection and maintaining access for a pre-determined period of time to test your incident response team’s ability to identify and respond to threats. A red team testing engagement uses penetration testers and red team tools to help you assess risk to IT assets, benchmark current security capabilities, justify security investments, sharpen the skills of your team, and improve detective controls.

Test Your Organization’s Ability to Identify and Respond to Threats with NetSPI Red Team Operations

All organizations face the possibility of being targeted by organized, sophisticated, and determined attackers, so it’s imperative to learn everything you can to improve your organization’s security posture. NetSPI’s red team operations leverage tactics, techniques, and procedures used by real-world attackers to help better understand exposures and your ability to respond to threats.

During our red team testing, NetSPI works with you to define the rules of engagement and project objectives to ensure clear expectations are set and met.

What Is Red Team Testing?

Despite the large investments many companies have made in detective controls, they often struggle to detect tactics, techniques, and procedures used by real-world threat actors during sustained and sophisticated attack campaigns.
