Red Team Testing

The term Red Teaming is often used to describe a process in the cyber security industry that allows an organisation to mimic a real-world threat to see how their employees and technology would respond in the event of an attack.

Red Teaming aims to not only detect vulnerabilities and exploit them, but to understand what is possible if a breach occurs. Our Red Teaming experts mirror the conditions of a genuine cyber-attack by utilising the same tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) used by threat actors.

While the goal of a penetration test is usually to uncover as many exploitable vulnerabilities as possible, the goal of a Red Team assessment is to achieve a specific objective – typically to access target data or systems. Because the wider IT or security team is kept in the dark, a Red Team exercise tests the ability of the defenders (the ‘blue team’) to detect the attack and respond to it.

EXPERT services

Red Teams are solely focused on reaching their goal – getting to sensitive data or systems. If they get access by exploiting some vulnerabilities, they will not find any other vulnerabilities that may exist. A penetration test, by contrast, is focused on identifying all the exploitable vulnerabilities that might exist, regardless of how likely they are to be exploited.  

What a Red Team offers is insight into the overall security posture of the target organisation (covering strengths and weaknesses), including detection and response capabilities, logical and physical security, security awareness and culture and includes recommendations for key issues identified.

SOC Platforms

Providers we use

When selecting a SOC package for your business, several considerations should be made. Is it compatible with your existing IT infrastructure? Does the SOC platform align with your needs and safeguard your digital assets?

At Cybaverse, we offer packages with both Crowdstrike and Microsoft Sentinel meaning you're not limited to working with one provider that doesn't suit your businesses needs.

CrowdStrike integrates with various security tools, enabling seamless data sharing and correlation across your security infrastructure.

Microsoft Sentinel seamlessly integrates with other Microsoft products and services, such as Azure, Office 365, and M365 Defender.

Real-world threats

Understand how your organisation will hold up against areal-world cyber-attack using the latest methods utilised by real threat actors. Focus is on attacks that are prevalent, successful and current rather than attacks that are less likely to occur

Robust approach

Red Team Testing helps you understand the potential risk that could come from a breach. You will also get detailed reports and recommendations for increased cyber security, including network segmentation, security solutions and improving your incident response procedure.


These offensive assessments have the potential to become expensive, time-consuming, and potentially disruptive. However, proper planning can eliminate those difficulties. The key to success here is investing in the correct people and processes. We all know it is better to prevent a cyber-attack than deal with its consequences – the average cost per incident continues to rise. Unfortunately, some of the biggest hacks in the world have been down to failures in controls that were assumed to be working and not tested.

Latest tactics

Cybaverse monitors all of the latest methodologies and tactics used by threat actors from nation state to criminal ransomware gangs. This enables us to map our approach to threat actors that may be specifically targeting your business sector.

Highlight vulnerabilities

Similar to penetration testing, the benefit of Red Team testing is that it enables you to safely identify vulnerabilities in your security and address them before real attackers exploit them.

Maintain trust

Being able to demonstrate that you take security seriously and undertake regular testing of your systems helps promote confidence for partners, suppliers and customers

Initial research & further scoping

If the project requires, further investigation will be undertaken to fully assess the requirement and a comprehensive quotation provided.


Depending on the requirement, our Red Teams will attempt to gain access to the systems as per the agreed scope. The team will use several methods to obtain access to company systems over an agreed time period.


Depending on the agreed approach for exploitation, Cybaverse may also attempt to gain further access from the compromised host(s) further into the client’s network or attempt to obtain sensitive information.


As with all our services, we will provide detailed expert advice in our report to help align your infrastructure with industry best practice security standards.

Red Team Clean-up

As far as is possible, the systems tested will be returned to their pre-test state to remove any uploaded files or elevated accounts that were created if appropriate and desired by the customer.

Glenn Sproule
CISO thinkmoney

In comparison to other penetration test offers that we had received we felt that Cybaverse’s was the most honest. A lot of other testers had originally said they would be able to test all our infrastructure in 3-4 days, which was later proven to be impossible.
