Continuous Defensive Improvement Through Adversarial Simulation, Collaboration, and Coaching.
Eliminate Industry Noise With A Trusted Security Partner
This is Lares
The security industry is polluted with vendor-generated noise vying for your attention and budget. The fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) machine has reached an all-time high with vendors promoting their solutions as a silver bullet to defend against attackers while simultaneously releasing internally developed “reports” depicting just how bad the world is without their solution.
Does any of this propaganda really make you feel more secure?
Here at Lares®, we want to help you make the most informed security decisions you can for your organization by giving you confidence. Confidence to defend against attackers with the tools at hand, address security and compliance concerns, and pass audits and assessments.
Penetration Testing goes beyond simply identifying and validating vulnerabilities — it is a full, manual exploitation; one that mirrors a real-world attack.
With the evolution of technology making perimeter access devices more secure and the rise in the sophistication of e-business focused attacks, the security focus has shifted to the next battlefront — applications.
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.
Purple Teaming takes the concept of Red Teaming one step further by creating a collaborative environment to simulate attacks, measure the effectiveness of defenses, and rapidly iterate improvements to increase resiliency and defense.
With our Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) service, you get a retained board-level resource who can ‘virtually sit inside your company and manage your security strategy, budget, and success of your risks and regulatory programs.
“They wanted to see us succeed as much as we wanted to see us succeed. This is why, 10 years later, we are still having this conversation.” — Jeffrey Hecht, Chief Compliance & Security Officer The Word & Brown Companies
