Get Ahead of Attackers With Covail’s Offensive Security Program

Many defenders don’t understand attackers. We do.

Covail’s “offense-informed defense” cybersecurity approach delivers collaborative engagements that provide actionable insights and best practices for managing cyber threats.

Perfect your practice by reducing time to detect and respond to threats as they arise. Engagement outputs give a practical set of recommendations which increase the efficiency and agility of your team.

Members of the offensive security team will perform threat-simulation assessments, emulating the tools, tactics, and procedures (TTPs) of today’s relevant threat actors to help prepare your incident response program to deal with real-world cyber attacks. Testing is highly collaborative, with our engineers working alongside your security team in an effort to decrease the mean time to detect (MTTD) of these attacks. Together, we create high-fidelity detections and observations during goal-oriented, adversarial emulation exercises, avoiding complacency and a false sense of security.

Covail’s Offensive Security Program Delivers:

  • Shared insights and best practices on managing cyber threats—from detection through recovery—reducing your time to respond to threats as they arise and increasing the efficiency of your resources.

  • Access to subject-matter experts and data-centric tools that address your security challenges, when you need them, scaling and imparting agility to your team.

Perfect your Practice with our Offensive Testing Engagements

  • External Adversarial Emulation:

    Perimeter-based, goal-oriented penetration test against your organization’s public-facing systems, both on-prem and in the cloud. External AEs help you understand the security posture of your externally facing assets from the perspective of modern attackers and identify exploitable vulnerabilities or where an attacker would be able to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data via your public-facing applications.

  • Internal Adversarial Emulation:

    Goal-oriented internal penetration test with targeted, actionable reporting mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK® framework. Internal AEs help you understand your security posture from the perspective of of a malicious insider that has gained access to your internal network and discover:

    • Which network and endpoint security controls such as NAC, AV, EDR, and IPS can be bypassed?
    • Where in your environment do exploitable vulnerabilities exist?
  • Themed Adversarial Simulation Response (TASR, Red Team Engagement)::

    This engagement model is designed to closely emulate the activities of an attacker and test your defensive capabilities when faced with real-world threats that are not tightly scoped and do not materialize on a set schedule. The engagement primarily tests client detection and response capabilities that are delivered in a detailed report describing prevention, detection, and response efficacy against specific threat tactics.

  • Purple Team Collaborative Exercises:

    Leveraging the Purple Team Exercise Framework (PTEF), we act as expert “sparring” partners for your Incident Response/Blue Team. This realistic–but safe–ransomware campaign emulation maximizes experiential learning, and shows improvement during testing
  • Web App & API Testing:

    Our deep dive web application security assessment is based on the OWASP Framework and includes both dynamic and manual testing as well as static code analysis. Covail’s consultative approach with developers helps maximize your security improvements. With logic and programmatic testing, our team and tools will evaluate & validate your APIs & web applications. We will then retest to validate your remediation work. Covail’s Web App & API Testing will:

      Provide a comprehensive analysis of the application’s security posture
      Identify exploitable vulnerabilities In production or non-production environments
      Establish a baseline that can be re-evaluated to show maturity gains
      Identify flaws that are often missed by automated scanners
  • Social Engineering & Phishing Assessments:

    Don’t stop at testing whether your employees will “click the link”—learn what happens once they do and whether your controls are working as expected. Did your Incident Response team receive an alert? Are your playbooks effective. Based on these assessments your organization will be able to develop an actionable security training plan, and a tailored security awareness & validation roadmap. 

  • Physical Penetration Testing:

    Test your organization’s physical security posture, including the staff, procedures, and controls that support it. Answer the question of whether a determined attacker can gain unauthorized access to your facility via a physical vector, to conduct a cyber attack.
