Purple Teaming

overview

Overview

Two teams are better than one. Purple teaming is a collaborative testing exercise where Packetlabs’ red team works with your internal security operations team (or blue team) to bridge the gap between offensive techniques and response efforts. Our Purple Teaming service provides experiential insights, resources, and assessments shared in real-time, simulating real-life attack scenarios that offer your company’s internal blue team a more in-depth threat detection understanding.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can you complete purple teaming without a blue team?

    No. Purple Teaming requires the ‘red team’ or the attackers (us), and the ‘blue team’ or the defenders (SOC vendor) to work together to first demonstrate the attacks, and ensure the blue team is capturing the relevant logs and alerting on suspicious activity. There must be an active blue team working with Packetlabs during a purple team exercise.

    This enabled Packetlabs to help elevate the monitoring within your organization, and alert on tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that attackers implement during their attacks. Our Purple Teaming exercises are led by the MITRE ATT&CK framework for enterprise.
