Penetration Testing

Penetration tests involve ethical hackers, often organized into red teams. These teams simulate the tactics and techniques of adversarial hackers. The red team aims to infiltrate the target system or network and exploit security weaknesses. They do this while closely emulating the behaviours and methodologies of malicious actors.

Physical Security

Conducting a physical penetration test, also known as a "red team" exercise, is a crucial part of a comprehensive security assessment. It involves evaluating the effectiveness of an organization's physical security measures in guarding against cyber threats. By testing the physical security of a facility within the context of cybersecurity, organizations can better defend against potential threats that may exploit weaknesses in their physical infrastructure. This approach complements digital security measures and strengthens the overall defence against cyberattacks.

Network and Software

Penetration testing, commonly referred to as pen testing, is a crucial cybersecurity practice aimed at identifying vulnerabilities within a computer system, network, or application by simulating cyberattacks. These assessments are conducted to evaluate an organization's security posture and assess its ability to defend against real-world threats. Penetration tests involve ethical hackers, often organized into teams, known as red teams, who mimic adversarial hackers' tactics and techniques. The red team aims to infiltrate the target system or network, exploit any security weaknesses, and gain unauthorized access while closely emulating malicious actors' behaviours and methodologies.


Cyber Kill Chain

xstrat follows the Lockheed Martin Cyber Kill Chain to conduct comprehensive pen tests on all aspects of your security.

The Cyber Kill Chain is a structured framework that helps cybersecurity professionals and organizations understand and analyze the various stages of a cyberattack. Developed by Lockheed Martin®, this model provides a systematic approach to comprehending and defending against cyber threats. The Cyber Kill Chain typically consists of the following stages:

  • 1 - Reconnaissance:
  • 2 - Weaponization:
  • 3 - Delivery:
  • 4 - Exploitation:
  • 5 - Installation:
  • 6 - Command and Control (C2):
  • 7 - Actions on Objectives:
