We simulate high-impact security breaches to help organizations better understand real security risks

A penetration test assesses the effectiveness of security controls by simulating a real-world attack that mimics current adversary techniques. Penetration testing is useful for illuminating unknown security weaknesses that could result in a compromise. 

Organizations working towards a higher-level of security maturity may be ready for red team operations, which showcases the same standard operating procedures and goal-oriented nature of an advanced persistent attack. Red team operations is the next step in threat assessment and incident response preparedness. Praetorian’s core team includes former NSA operators and CIA clandestine service agents capable of executing advanced advisory simulation.

As part of Praetorian security assessments, and depending on the level of rigor, our security engineers employ a variety of techniques for uncovering unknown vulnerabilities.

Red team attack vectors may include:
External Network
Internal Network
Social Engineering
Physical Attacks
Wireless Network
"Praetorian's approach was very professional, to the point and comprised of in-depth analysis of the security vulnerabilities, which was greatly beneficial to us."
Fakhr Ul-Islam
Director Product Management IOT
"Praetorian was very quick to respond with quotes, very thorough in their testing procedures, and very accommodating to our schedule limits and tight deadlines. Will be back in touch soon to talk about additional work."
Mark House
Information Security
"I was very happy with the team, everyone was professional, the items found were useful, and I've received positive feedback from others here in engineering."
Mike Yoder
Software Engineer
"Praetorian always considers the broader set of enterprise services we have here at Qualcomm so reports and recommendations can be actionable."
Gabe Lawrence
Senior IT Security Engineer

Purple team activities help improve detection and response capabilities

Purple team engagements typically follow either a red team engagement or, ideally, a NIST CSF review, to provide the most tailored activities designed to identify weaknesses and provide actionable recommendations for improvement. Conducting a red team engagement prior to the purple team allows Praetorian to provide our clients with known successful attack vectors (provided as network packet captures) which can be run and re-run against clients’ networks while we assist the security team to identify and stop the attacks. Conversely, conducting a NIST CSF review prior to the purple team exercise allows Praetorian to vet how the client environment aligns with NIST CSF standards and in doing so, identify the most likely technical vulnerabilities and procedural deficiencies that could lead to a compromise.

Praetorian maximizes value by demonstrating the attack vectors to which our clients are vulnerable, prioritizing a plan of remediation and stepping away to allow time for fixes to take place before testing again to benchmark progress. Ultimately, the goal of these exercises is to reduce or eliminate the security gap between breach, detection, and remediation.

Common examples of tabletop exercises include detection of:
Phishing Attempts
Payload Exploits
Initial Compromise
Security Bypasses
Lateral Movement
Privileges Escalation
Command & Control
Data Exfiltration

Blue team support prepares you to better defend against and stop threats

Blue teams refer to the internal security team that defends against both real attackers and red teams. Blue team support prepares your security operations to defend against attackers and helps you constantly improve the organization's security posture. Given the sophisticated nature of a red team operation, this service offering only makes sense for advanced blue teams with broad situational awareness of the environment and seasoned operators at the helm.

Praetorian is known for delivering actionable, accurate assessments that produce tangible security improvements. Many clients continue to improve their security posture by leveraging our team's security expertise to ensure successful mitigation and remediation. Praetorian is a collective of highly technical engineers and developers with decades of industry experience. We truly act as an extension of your team offering deep security expertise.

Activities to improve defenses and overall security posture:
Blue Team Support
Mitigation verification
Vendor analysis
Product Deployment

We use the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to help identify current and targeted future states of your organization's security program

Praetorian will benchmark your organization’s current cybersecurity posture to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and identify an appropriate target state based on the organization’s threat and vulnerability profile. By combining the NIST Framework and the Top 20 Critical Security Controls (CSC), a useful current/target state analysis can be performed and then utilized as a driver for prioritized activities to improve an organization’s security posture.

We use data gathered during the various phases of a security audit to identify the current state. Working closely with your organization, we will identify a target state based on the threats to your particular organization, your business needs, technology profile, and overall risk approach. Praetorian utilizes the results of technical security assessments, interviews, and documentation reviews to complete this service.
