Similar to other forms of security validation such as red teaming and penetration testing, BAS complements more traditional security tools by simulating cyberattacks to test security controls and provide actionable insights. Like a red team exercise, breach and attack simulations use the real-world attack tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) employed by hackers to proactively identify and mitigate security vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by actual threat actors.

The distinction between “internal” and “external” networks has always been somewhat false. Clients are accustomed to thinking about firewalls as the barrier between network elements we expose to the internet and back-end systems that are only accessible to insiders. Yet as the delivery mechanisms for applications, websites and content become more decentralized, that barrier is becoming more permeable. The same is true for the people managing those network elements. Quite often, the same team (or the same person!) is responsible for managing internal network pathways and external delivery syste ..read more
