A comprehensive list of improvements that have already been implemented.

Many organizations have documented plans for business continuity, disaster recovery and incident response but don’t evaluate, update or get regular external validation of their effectiveness or assess how they work together. GoSecure has expert resources who can help assess and make improvement recommendations relevant to your organization, industry and technology tools based on the current threat environment.
A Purple Team engagement allows an organization to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses in people, processes and technology in a safe environment–before the threats become a reality.”

Red Team Services

GoSecure Red Team strategic engagements combine multiple available attack techniques with experienced security professionals to test the in-house capabilities of an organization, the Blue Team. Blue Teams within the organization, such as the Security Operations Center (SOC), Incident Response, etc. will defend as GoSecure’s best threat emulation professionals try to infiltrate based on objectives identified by the organization.

Compliance teams, executives and security leadership are among the stakeholders who will value the outcomes provided by the specialized expertise delivered during a Red Team engagement. GoSecure professionals understand the threat landscape and use that knowledge to illustrate risks and gaps, as well as evaluate controls with the goal of protecting against

With a Red Team exercise, the in-house Blue Team will not know how or when the attack will be executed to create as much realism as possible. While at the same time, the exercise will provide a safe environment for Blue Teams to execute incident response protocols and leverage their tools. A Red Team engagement results in a report filled with actionable recommendations tailored to your organization’s risks, gaps and objectives.

Purple Team Services

GoSecure Purple Team strategic engagements take a ‘test, fix, test again, repeat’ approach designed to help rapidly improve security posture for organizations through a long-term, collaborative engagement. A Purple Team consists of security experts from GoSecure and professionals from the in-house “Blue Team” who work through attack scenarios together. A Purple Team engagement works best for organizations who want:

  • Rapid improvement in security posture – fixes are implemented and re-tested throughout the process.
  • Advice and coaching from specialists – house teams learn by working side-by-side with top cybersecurity industry professionals who understand the threat landscape, attacker practices and response techniques.
  • A list of accomplishments instead of suggestions for improvement – thanks to the unique, collaborative approach, most of the risks and gaps will be addressed immediately, with no need to wait for a report.

Purple Team Model for Rapid Security Posture Improvement


GoSecure offers an industry-leading approach to Purple Team services with each engagement designed to the objectives of your organization. In-house Blue Teams will be empowered through the engagement, learning from experts on topics like incident response, gaining knowledge on threat hunting techniques and studying how to use offensive tools. Organizations can also focus on improving the capabilities and configuration of their current security technology. Purple Team services will help prepare organizations to defend against real-world attacks.
