Validating Detection and Response With Purple Team Assessments

Earlier this month FireEye launched its Purple Team and Continuous Purple Team Assessments to enable organizations to quantifiably evaluate the effectiveness of their security controls and programs through the FireEye Verodin Security Instrumentation Platform (SIP). With Purple Team Assessments, FireEye Mandiant experts guide an organization’s security team through known cyber attacks.

I spoke with one of our global red team leads who is on the front lines managing this new offering, Evan Pena. During our discussion, Evan explains what exactly a purple team is versus a traditional red team and blue team, what are the outputs and deliverables that come from a purple team, in what capacity Verodin will be used to deliver this new offering, and more.
