Penetration Testing

Full-Scope, Multi-Layered Attack Simulation

Red Teaming is an exercise conducted to test the effectiveness of protection controls and detection controls and to measure the quality of response through active attack simulation across the physical, electronic, and social realms.

Red Team Testing

In a Red Team Testing exercise, your organization will be able to measure the effectiveness of controls in the Social, Electronic, Physical, and Converged attack surfaces. Motivated and highly funded adversaries look for opportunities to attack on all levels to ensure the success of their operations. Lares mimics the cadence, scope, and tempo of a real attack to provide the maximum impact and largest opportunity to test all surfaces of the security program. This type of converged service transcends common attack patterns. It allows for everything from phishing, direct/indirect electronic attacks, physical penetration testing, physical bypass, social engineering, insider threat testing, drops, custom implants, defensive control evasion, and more. Red Team Testing will show even the most mature organization the reality of attacker success and provide artifacts to improve the program at every level.

Red Team Development

Lares works from inception to help organizations build highly effective Red Teams that provide more than a pen-testing function. Lares Red Teams provide continuous defensive improvement through adversarial simulation and collaboration. These Red Teams have stood the test of time and provided essential telemetry for enterprises looking for a real-time view into their defensive telemetry. Lares engineers will work with your business to help identify goals, requirements, and methodologies to help build your own internal Red Team that provides value to the organization.
