BAS solutions simulate (and automate) adversary behavior in a non-malicious manner, helping your organization gain insights into areas of potential vulnerability.

What can I do with BAS?

We’ve seen a lot of security professionals test scenarios that don’t necessarily align with their security goals or program. They’re doing the best they can with the tools they have. But in order to reap the benefits of BAS listed below, it’s important to first understand what resources need protecting and how an adversary might compromise those resources.

Ensure security tools are configured properly

Organizations can now use. BAS to ensure proper configuration at first install and on an ongoing basis.

Check errors as teaks and updates are rolled out

By implementing a BAS program, you’re helping your organization stay ahead of problems associated with security decay.

Perform high fidelity vendor assessments

Evaluating new vendors potential to integrate seamlessly with your current security stack is difficult to objectively assess. However, BAS solutions give you the ability to test proof-of-concepts against simulated adversary scenarios.

Prepare staff for Incidence response

By having your team respond to BAS simulations as though they were malicious events, BAS solutions offer a unique method of training to help your team better detect and defend attacks before they happen.

Who Uses BAS?

Blue Teams wanting to practice defending their networks.
Read Teams who need perform techniques that lead to vulnerabilities
Pentesters looking to define what techniques they leverage on engagements.

What sets BAS apart?

BAS, as Gartner defines it, is a category of tools that “simulate a broad range of malicious activities (including attacks that would circumvent their current controls), enabling customers to determine the current state of their security posture.
