Why do I need an Advanced Attack Simulation?
Organizations that have been through multiple successful rounds of penetration testing resulting in a hardened environment face a very tough problem: How do they get a successful penetration test?
The common approach offered by a standard penetration test just won’t deliver results in these well defended organizations. Commodity vulnerability assessment tools or off-the-shelf attacks and exploits, are just not going to be effective. Success requires an advanced attack, as by definition they are protected against any common approach that would normally be conducted. A penetration test over a two-to-three week period of time does not adequately allow for this to occur. On the other hand, the cost of conducting a multi-month focused assessment isn’t part of many organizations budgets. This is where Offensive Security shines.
At Offensive Security, these sorts of hardened environments are what we love to work in. A job that requires us to stretch and find new attack methodologies is what we are looking for, and we have been lucky enough to find ourselves in this situation many times. Because of this, we have been able to build a cost effective vulnerability assessment test for these environments that may be right for you.
