Red Team

At White Coast Security, our Red Team experts don’t simply identify vulnerabilities; they take on the role of an attacker to achieve specific objectives. Using offensive security techniques, they simulate real-world attacks to provide objective-based assessments of your organization’s security posture.

Our Red Team exercises are an essential part of sophisticated penetration testing engagements. We work with you to define a clear objective, such as determining if an external attacker with advanced capabilities could access an internal database system and steal a particular set of sensitive records. Our Red Team experts simulate an external threat actor and identify exploitable vulnerabilities that would allow them to achieve their objective, providing you with valuable insights into your organization’s security weaknesses.

At White Coast Security, our Red Team experts go beyond identifying vulnerabilities. They act like black hat hackers and use all available tools, including hardware, to find weaknesses in your organization’s security and exploit them. The objective of our Red Team exercises is to simulate a real-world attack and help you understand your organization’s vulnerabilities and weaknesses.

It’s important to note that Red Teams are often confused with Penetration Testers. However, our Red Team experts deploy stealthy, undetectable techniques to simulate attacks, unlike Penetration Testers who use loud techniques that are typically detectable.

Our Red Team experts specialize in a variety of attacks, including

They do everything they can to break your organization’s security and gain access.

Blue Team

At White Coast Security, our Blue Team experts play a crucial role in defending your organization’s security. They assume the role of the defender, responsible for thwarting every attack launched by the Red Team.


To be effective, the Blue Team requires access to various forms of data such as log data, SIEM data, threat intelligence data, and network traffic capture data. They analyze large amounts of data and intelligence to detect potential threats, locating the proverbial needle in a haystack.


Our Blue Team experts possess the ability to defend against all types of attacks, all of the time. They use advanced tools and techniques to monitor your organization’s systems and networks, ensuring that any potential threats are identified and neutralized before they can cause harm.


At White Coast Security, we understand that the best defense is a proactive defense. That’s why our Blue Team experts work tirelessly to stay up-to-date with the latest threats and attack techniques, constantly improving their defenses to keep your organization safe.


White Coast Security’s Blue Team is your organization’s internal security team responsible for protecting your network and systems from cyber attacks. They detect, oppose, and weaken the Red Team attackers by collecting information about vulnerabilities and carrying out risk assessments.


Our Blue Team tightens security by educating staff about potential attacks and changing security policies. They monitor all unusual network behavior and block any suspicious IP addresses. Regular security checks and vulnerability scans are also performed.

To further protect your organization, our Blue Team implements control measures such as:

Purple Team

Purple Teaming is a cybersecurity testing exercise that has gained popularity in recent years. It combines the roles of the Red Team and Blue Team to provide a comprehensive and tailored assurance activity that delivers a realistic assessment of an organization’s security posture. At White Coast Security, our Purple Teaming engagements involve the sharing of intelligence data between our highly skilled Red and Blue Teams. This helps organizations gain a better understanding of the Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) utilized by threat actors.

Through a series of Red Team scenarios, our Blue Team can enhance and fine- tune their detection and response capabilities by simulating these TTPs. This process ensures that organizations can measure their detection and response capabilities in a manner that closely aligns with real-world threats.

Our Purple Teaming engagements are tailored to meet the specific needs of each organization. Our teams work collaboratively to identify and exploit vulnerabilities, while also enhancing defensive measures. The ultimate goal is to provide our clients with a comprehensive understanding of their security posture and the steps they can take to improve it.

At White Coast Security, we understand the importance of having a comprehensive security strategy that includes both offensive and defensive measures. That’s why we offer Purple Teaming engagements that bring our highly skilled Red and Blue Teams together to provide a realistic assessment of your organization’s security posture. Our Purple Teaming approach allows for the sharing of intelligence data between the Red and Blue Teams, enabling us to simulate real-world threat scenarios and fine-tune your detection and response capabilities.

Our Purple Teaming engagements are tailored to your organization’s specific needs and goals. We work alongside your internal security teams, analyzing their work and recommending any necessary changes to enhance your overall security posture. With our Purple Teaming approach, we bring together both the offensive and defensive sides of security to create a strong feedback loop and ensure that your organization is well-protected against cyber threats.

Don’t let potential security gaps go unnoticed. Contact White Coast Security today to learn more about our Purple Teaming engagements and how they can benefit your organization’s security strategy.

Purple Teaming

Overall, Red Teaming, Blue Teaming, and Purple Teaming can help organizations proactively identify and mitigate security risks, improve security posture, and prepare for potential security incidents. By working with WCS’s experienced Red and Blue Teams, organizations can gain valuable insights and expertise to enhance their security readiness.



Our red team employs threat emulation techniques to simulate a targeted attack and assess your organization’s resiliency. These custom engagements, which last several months, are designed to test the most likely threats, security controls, valuable targets, and critical assets. Our campaigns employ multi-vector attacks, emulating real threat actors’ methods, targeting technical, physical, and human assets to penetrate your security defenses. Once the red team campaign concludes, we share the findings with your blue team to enhance your security and incident response programs through measurable objectives.


Our blue team services are designed to provide comprehensive protection and monitoring of your network, systems, and data. We work with you to identify the most critical assets and threats facing your organization, and develop a tailored defense strategy to protect against them. Our team of experts use the latest technologies and methodologies to continuously monitor your environment, identify potential threats, and respond in real-time to keep your organization secure. We offer a range of services, including security information and event management (SIEM), intrusion detection and prevention, vulnerability scanning, threat hunting, and incident response. Our blue team services can be customized to meet your unique needs and budget, ensuring that you have the best possible defense against cyber threats.
Purple teaming combines the strengths of the red and blue teams to identify critical threats and potential attack paths, focusing on areas where your security controls may have gaps in their ability to detect or prevent attacks. Our tailored approach involves designing attack campaigns suitable for your organization’s industry and environment and systematically emulating real-world attacks. We can start from the beginning of an attack or simulate an “assumed breach” scenario to accelerate the process. During the engagement, the blue team is heavily involved in planning and execution, ensuring that they can detect and respond to attacks effectively. We provide immediate feedback throughout the attack, working with your blue team to assess attack visibility and validate the effectiveness of your existing security controls and processes. Additionally, we offer social engineering and physical penetration testing as part of our Red and Purple Team Services or as standalone services.
Advantages and Benefits of Purple Teaming

Purple teaming offers the same benefits of red teaming/blue teaming. In short, it allows organizations to actively test their existing cyber defenses and capabilities in a low-risk environment. Conducting a red team/blue team exercise allows the organization to:

However, implementing a true purple team strategy that brings together both the red and blue teams as one unit, offers additional benefits. These include
