San Diego, California
Founded by a group of security veterans with experience in security consulting, penetration testing, threat research, attack modeling, product development and related services, AttackIQ counts Index Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures and Telstra Ventures among its investors. “For too long security has been a guessing game,” said Stephan Chenette, Founder & CTO. “It’s time for security testing to catch up to our needs as an industry and allow for constant, safe and cost-effective scenario creation that continuously holds security vendors and teams accountable.”
The company partners with resellers like Optiv, Spectrami, Tevora, Trace3 and Sentek Global, as well as with managed security service providers (MSSPs) like Telstra, MENA and NaviLogic. It also has technology partnerships with Carbon Black, CrowdStrike, Cyphort, Endgame, Mitre, Phantom, Splunk and ThreatSTOP.
AttackIQ’s BAS platform, called FireDrill, helps enterprises mount an “offensive defense.” It’s an agent-based solution that can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud. Setup is quick and easy, and it comes with built-in attack scenarios that the user can customize as needed. The dashboard provides easy-to-read visualizations of the environment’s current attack readiness, and the reporting assigns a percentage score for resiliency. The company offers a free community edition and a free trial.
