“As threat actors become more sophisticated, it’s become obvious that the best defense is to go on the offensive. Adversary simulation has become increasingly valuable for organizations looking to quickly gauge and improve their security position. Afterall, if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. Gotham Security has been a close partner for years and this was a natural next step to allow our red-teaming experts to take our clients’ defenses to the next level and continue our dedication to finding the security gaps before cybercriminals do,” said Mahdi Hedhli, GoVanguard CEO.
