Tactical Security

The Best Defense is a Good Offense

In today's threat landscape, any system that is exposed to the public must always be considered a target. Every day the Internet is scoured by automated bots searching for potential entry points into systems and networks. It is analogous to a criminal walking up and down the block in any given neighborhood and checking each doorknob to see if any are unlocked. If yours is, your safety and security are at risk. And that is just the automated scanning. There are more advanced techniques that enable nefarious individuals and organized criminals to profile networks and systems searching for any potential foothold into the environment. By "offense" we do not mean going after your enemies but rather turn offense against yourself. No, we are not promoting "hacking back" or otherwise trying to hack your enemies, rather, in this context we mean that offense turned inward Offense turned inward is a great way to ensure you find the mis-configurations and security vulnerabilities before anyone else does. It is, therefore, critical that systems are routinely examined for potential vulnerabilities by the good guys before they are found by the bad guys. Excellens has your back.
