Deepest Adversary Emulation Library

We bring the deepest library of MITRE ATT&CK adversary behaviors to life to validate your cybersecurity readiness through AttackIQ Attack Graphs and the Anatomic Engine, the Network Control Validation Module, AttackIQ Vanguard, and our bespoke assessments. The AttackIQ Security Optimization Platform offers thousands of scenarios and assessment templates. Our adversary research team is drawn from the likes of General Electric, the U.S. intelligence community, and the RAND corporation, and our leadership team is comprised of security practitioners with decades of experience at the highest levels of business and government. In addition to our in-house expertise, our research team works with the Center for Threat-Informed Defense on their Attack Flow project to further emulate the adversary with specificity and realism to test advanced cyberdefense technologies against multi-stage attacks.


Test Multiple Assets Anywhere, Anytime

Unlike competitors, AttackIQ offers the industry’s best deployment model for testing your controls at scale and in production. You can test on your laptop, in your home office, or wherever you want. Unlike our competitors, AttackIQ can test on all of your security controls against multiple potential threats all at once. Other competitors test one asset against one threat at a time; we can test all your assets at once against multiple assessments. Finally, AttackIQ is an API-first and open platform with a fully transparent testing methodology, giving customers the ability to measure and validate individual security controls as well as their end-to-end security pipeline.


Founding Research Partnership with MITRE Engenuity’s Center for Threat-Informed Defense
