Our Services

We Help Build Best In-Class Security Operations

We are experts in developing and improving security operations capabilities, increasing our client's readiness against adversary attacks. We leverage our deep experience and knowledge of adversary techniques to support our clients, all the way from point-in-time assessments improving specific defensive capabilities, to serving as the trusted advisor and partner driving improvements across the entire security operations program.

Who we are

Our Specialty is Understanding Adversary Tradecraft

Our experience across hundreds of government, defense industry, financial, and healthcare environments has taught us that the most vital component of a robust security posture is understanding how adversaries will operate against the organization's enterprise environment. We build our services around that perspective, focused on analyzing and improving attack path detection capabilities and validating defensive efforts through attack simulation. We believe that technical capabilities have their place, but the human component to any security program is absolutely critical. Our objective is to train and arm our clients with the knowledge of how the effective use of the interlocking components of their security program provide a robust security posture and readiness against active directory attacks and other vulnerable system attacks.

Our assessments focus on adversary capabilities and techniques present in the “real world,” translating risk into actions an organization can achieve. Our advisory services are designed not to just help the organization install another technology, but to help improve attack path detection and response capabilities over time, keeping our clients informed of adversary capabilities and preventing effective operations of advanced threat actors.

What to Expect

“Assume Breach”
