Purple Team exercises

Evaluate risk and improve your defensive capability.

What is Purple Teaming?

Purple Teaming brings both Red and Blue teams together in a joint exercise which simulates and analyses active attack scenarios based on pre-defined goals. Purple Team Assessments can be applied to the whole organisation, internal assets, the perimeter, and cloud environments.

Effective Assessments

Effective Purple Team Assessments allow you to simultaneously evaluate the effectiveness of your defences whilst improving your team’s capability to defend against real-world attack scenarios.

Throughout a Claranet Purple Team assessment, our experienced Red Team works closely with your defensive Blue Teams to provide continuous feedback and knowledge transfer. Facing real-world attack scenarios, informed by threat intelligence, with the support and guidance of the ethical hacking team, we will help to develop the skills needed by your defensive team to detect attacks, proactively hunt for threats and monitor attack surfaces for suspicious behaviour

How we work with you

We provide a tailored approach based around your objectives, the size and capabilities of your defensive team and the type and sophistication of the attack simulations required. For example, some Purple Team Assessments require extensive knowledge transfer and collaboration throughout attack simulations, whilst others are based on a stealthy, realistic simulated attack delivery with subsequent review and debrief.

This bespoke approach ensures that you receive the right level of support to deliver insight and outcomes that improve your organisation’s ability to defend against cyber attacks.

Our objective is to provide the threat visibility needed for you to make effective changes to security processes, deploy appropriately configured defensive technology and train key staff in a way that will make the job of an attacker more difficult and reduce the chances of a security breach.
