Advanced Persistent Threat Simulation Testing 

Point-in-time vulnerability assessments, and even penetration tests, provide a narrow view of IT security and do not accurately reflect the habits and attack methods of real-life hackers. To stay one step ahead of malicious actors, enterprises must evolve their approach to identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities— or face significant monetary, data, and reputation losses. 

How We Can Help

Securance developed an innovative service to address clients’ concerns about advanced persistent threats (APTs): sophisticated, stealthy threat actors that lurk, undetected, on enterprise networks while mining valuable, sensitive, and proprietary data. Our APT simulation tests are long-term engagements, typically 120 days, that uncover weak points, the extent to which they can be exploited, and the length of time an attack could evade detection in the environment. In short, our experts use APT simulations to help clients build their offense, not just their defense. 

Securance starts each APT testing engagement with persistent social engineering attacks that allow access to an endpoint within the environment. Our testers deploy a beacon to the endpoint, then attempt to move laterally through the network, escalate privileges, install malware, and exfiltrate sensitive data– all while evading detection. Finally, we delete our footprint, logs, and other evidence of our presence, just as a true attacker would.
