FireCompass Continuous Automated Red Teaming – Emerging Approach to Attack Modelling
BOSTON – April 29, 2021 – (Newswire.com)
FireCompass has been selected as one of the innovative startups at RSAC 365 Innovation Showcase. RSAC 365 Innovation Showcase, an initiative of RSAConference, highlights innovative companies in the cybersecurity space globally.
“Since most businesses are moving to the cloud and with cybersecurity space getting more diverse, the attack surface is increasing. This is why there is a need for automation in red teaming. With the threats scaling up offensive attack simulation mixed with vulnerability scanning is a must,” said Maria Kussmaul, Co-Founder, AGC Partners.
“We are thrilled to be a part of RSAC 365 Innovation Showcase,” said Bikash Barai, Co-founder of FireCompass. “Organizations typically conduct security testing only a few times a year on a partial list of online assets, excluding shadow IT unknown to security teams. Meanwhile, hackers are always attempting attacks on the entirety of their assets. FireCompass’ vision is to make Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART) available to all so that organizations can discover and test all their assets at all times – just like real attackers do,” added Bikash. Speaking about the vision, Sam Curry, Cyber Security Officer, Cyber Reason added that the solution “democratizes CART and ASM.”
FireCompass is reinventing traditional red teaming using the power of AI and SaaS. The solution runs continuously without the need for software, hardware or additional employee resources. It indexes the deep, dark and surface web using similar reconnaissance techniques as nation-state actors. The platform automatically discovers an organization’s ever-changing digital attack surface, including unknown exposed databases, cloud buckets, code leaks, risky cloud assets and more. The attack engine then launches multi-stage attacks, which includes network attacks, application attacks and social engineering attacks, on the discovered digital surface to identify attack paths that are otherwise missed by conventional tools. FireCompass’ CART uniquely combines Attack Surface Management (ASM) and safe attacks, eliminating the need for multiple tools and significant manual effort.
FireCompass is being used by top telcos, banks, financial services and technology companies. The founders’ previous endeavours include iViZ, which was acquired by Cigital(/Synopsys) and CISOPlatform, one of the largest communities of CISOs and security executives. The team has multiple patents in IT security and have broken the best cybersecurity products, including McAfee, Microsoft Bit Locker, Sophos, AVG etc.
FireCompass is a SaaS platform for Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART) and Attack Surface Management (ASM). FireCompass continuously indexes and monitors the deep, dark and surface web using nation-state grade reconnaissance techniques. The platform automatically discovers an organization’s digital attack surface and launches multi-stage safe attacks, mimicking a real attacker, to help identify attack paths that are otherwise missed by conventional tools. FireCompass is led by serial cybersecurity entrepreneurs and backed by prominent investors and venture capitalist funds. To learn more, visit www.firecompass.com.
