Whether you are an end-user, developer, manager, board member or investor: No one likes security problems. Still it’s important to develop resilience against threat actors, as a compromised system could result in serious damage to your brand and business, and high remediation costs.
Deciding on how to set and spend your security budget is a challenge in itself. Justifying your costs and security controls can be difficult, especially when you are not under attack (yet).
We understand it’s a never-ending balancing act between short-term and long-term priorities for both your business and security.
At CREDS we are committed to make life easier for you: every finding we report is a 100% exploitable scenario, not a theoretical vulnerability or farfetched risk. As a result, each reported finding you fix inherently makes your systems more secure.
Because let’s be honest: ultimately only your actual system changes make a real difference in your security, not the extensive reports, slick presentations or endless meetings.
At CREDS we believe that the easier we can make security, the better. It enables you to focus on your actual business, and it enables us to learn quicker, and therefore improve the security of more customers.
In that, automation is key. It will never fully replace an experienced security processional, but it can prevent repetitive work while having the world’s latest insights and techniques integrated at the same time. As a consequence, you can save on manhours and prevent a ‘war on talent’.
We are Red Teamers at heart and have a rich background in security consultancy. Throughout the years, we have automated many of our repeating tasks and internal processes. We have developed clever hacking tools that empower us in our daily work. This way we can offer our customers more value for money and moreover, we can spend most of our time on what we love most and what we are hired for: applying our security expertise to your specific context, so that you can ramp up your resilience and maturity.
We developed a platform that performs red team attacks based on experience from our services, intelligence from our partners on new malware and new tools, tactics and procedures currently used by cyber criminals. The platform is easy to use and enables clients to execute attacks on their own organisation tailored to their risk profile and sector. Furthermore, we provide malware currently used by cyber criminals to test the resilience of your infrastructure and provide practical advice to decrease the chance of a malicious infection. Please meet our Automated Red Teaming (ART) Platform: our ground-breaking and highly integrated offensive security platform that we’ve developed from scratch!
Our innovative Automated Red Teaming (ART) Platform enables you to manage, stage and perform real attacks on your own infrastructure, without actually harming it as true cyber criminals would do. Unlike vulnerability scanners that only test the surface of your infrastructure, our platform goes much deeper by actually exploiting vulnerabilities and once inside, communicating back to our command and control servers like real threats do. Our platform is like a chess computer in security land, empowering you to gain insights in your own security and organizational capabilities by putting your systems and internal ‘Blue Team’ to the test.
The platform automates many of the manual tasks that we perform during penetration tests and red teaming sessions, offering you a continuous and cost-efficient way to discover low-hanging fruit.
To optimise the signal-to-noise ratio for you, our platform only reports attack paths that can be abused with 100% certainty, ignoring immaterial risks and theoretical vulnerabilities. If our platform discovers an attack path into your systems, you can be sure that a cyber criminal is able to abuse it today and that a fix is needed.
Our ART platform does not simulate attacks. It performs real attacks that provide insight into your overall security posture. We follow exactly the same attack path as real attackers, but instead of having malicious intent or causing damage our goal is to learn as much about your security as possible. We provide the cyber version of rubber bullets – the stakes are real, but the pain is less. Being Red Teamers at heart, we gain access like real attackers, while respecting your operation and organization at the same time.
e.g. financial, ransom, data theft, or destruction
