Astra’s red team services provide you with an outside approach to security. Detect flaws & their impact with actionable remediation measures.
Red team services refer to an adversarial assessment of a company’s security measures such as policies, plans, systems, and assumptions. Cybersecurity experts stimulate real-world attacks to detect vulnerabilities and potential points of exploitation. They are usually conducted by external teams.
The purpose of red team services is to help identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses by employing an independent and critical external perspective. Originally a military concept, red teaming challenges biases and uncovers flaws that might go unnoticed by internal staff. This approach has been adopted across domains like IT, cybersecurity, and physical security enabling companies to proactively assess their systems from an outsider's viewpoint.
1. Information Gathering or Reconnaissance: In the initial phase of red teaming operations, experts amass crucial data about the target, including employees' personal details, network configuration, API endpoints, breached credentials, and any embedded systems.
2. Planning and Mapping of the Attack: After gathering information, the cyber red team strategizes considering factors such as identifying hidden subdomains, cloud infrastructure vulnerabilities, weak credentials, and risks in network and web applications.
3. Execution of the Attack and Penetration Testing: The red team initiates attacks targeting vulnerabilities using various methods including brute force, employing social engineering on employees, and manipulating client-side applications.
4. Reporting and Documentation: Finally, they deliver a comprehensive report that analyzes the outcomes of the red team services including the executed attacks, their impact, newly identified security risks, vulnerabilities, and possible remediation steps.
