Red Team Data Aggregation

Optimize the Business of Purple Teaming

Cybersecurity teams must have a view of their security posture in order to protect their data. In the typical model, the acquisition of vulnerability data and testing of the parameters has been considered a red team function. Security teams within organizations may have some red team function using automated scanners and in-house red teamers or they may outsource some or all of this work to penetration tester consultants or security service providers. 

Regardless of how data is acquired, cybersecurity teams must take ingest, dissect, and interpret it in order to flag the correct information and spot the most critical issues. Data handling from multiple sources can become a major headache and a bottleneck to actually becoming more secure. Just having information isn’t very helpful if it is lost in giant reports or siloed in different systems. 

With PlexTrac, security teams can aggregate all the data from all the sources and translate it into meaningful and actionable information. PlexTrac allows the blue teamers to use assessment results by assigning and tracking necessary remediation all within the platform. If security service provider partners are also using PlexTrac, they can move beyond the need for a static PDF or Word doc deliverable and instead deliver their results directly to the security team inside of PlexTrac. Regardless of size or maturity, cybersecurity teams can begin purple teaming with PlexTrac.

A Centralized Platform for Data Aggregation

With PlexTrac, you can import all of the data from your network and application scanning tools into one place where it can be triaged into actionable information. Bring all your data together in PlexTrac for better, quicker aggregation and visualization.

How to Import Data from Scanners in PlexTrac

A few simple steps on our user-friendly interface and you’ll be saving time while focusing on the real security work.

Step 1: Prepare to Add Findings to a Report

Navigate to the findings section.

Select the “Add Findings Dropdown,” and then select the “From Tools” option.

Step 2: Choose Your Scanner Imports

A modal titled “Import Results” will appear. From here, you will use the “Select Source” drop down and choose the tool that the data is coming from (i.e. Nessus, Burp, Qualys). Additionally, you can add tags to both the findings and the assets that are being imported.

You will then see all of the scan data brought into PlexTrac in the form of “Findings.”

Step 3: Modify, Enhance, Analyze the Data

You will then see all of the scan data brought into PlexTrac in the form of “Findings.”

Aggregate All the Data from Red Team Operations with PlexTrac

Managing the data doesn’t have to be a drag. Easily import the data from all your network and application scanning tools — and data from your service providers — into PlexTrac where it can be triaged and used by ALL team members.

Cybersecurity teams within organizations have to do it all. Traditional siloed penetration testing (red/blue exercises) to obtain vulnerability data isn’t maximizing resources anymore. Learn how cybersecurity teams of all sizes and maturities can go purple with PlexTrac.
