What is Offensive Security?
Reactive solutions and processes like threat detection and patching will always be a vital part of cybersecurity. However, with the threat landscape constantly growing and evolving, it’s become essential to tackle the problem from every angle.
An offensive security approach does just that with proactive solutions and processes that expose and close security gaps before a breach ever occurs. An offensive security strategy identifies weaknesses and uses the same exploitation techniques as threat actors to determine risk.
To put it simply, the goal of offensive security is to be a deterrent, providing significant obstacles to ensure that attackers never see your environment as an easy target, but instead one that would be time consuming, labor intensive, and ultimately not worth the hassle.
