Red & Blue, Intel and Hunt Team Collaboration
Purple Teams testing is the best way to bring focus to improving cyber defenses. Our approach prioritizes MITRE ATT&CK tactics & techniques and Adversary Simulations for your industry, and establishes a process with defined Defense Success Metrics.
SRA is an industry leader in purple team thought leadership and testing, with our contribution embodied by our VECTR™ platform and taught in several SANS classes (by independent instructors, not by SRA team members).

Purple Teams can create quantifiable metrics about how well your defense capabilities are preventing and detecting attack patterns.
This is accomplished by intentionally bringing prioritized attack patterns into your Purple Teams scope (not ALL of MITRE ATT&CK at once) and testing against them. The Defense Success Metric can now be based on that denominator of attack patterns and is a foundation that can continue to grow.
Purple Teams Essentials
Overview: Starter assessment with 40-50 fundamental test cases used widely by threat actors. Incremental changes in test cases each quarter to determine broad defensive capabilities and areas for improvement.
Enterprise Purple Teams
Overview: A robust exercise including end-to-end threat actor simulation and broadly covering MITRE ATT&CK tactics to put your defenses to the test, and most importantly, develop a roadmap for world-class detection.
