CovertSwarm Offers Free Offensive Operations Center for Attack Surface Management

CovertSwarm is offering free access to its Offensive Operations Center (OOC) platform to help organizations understand their attack surfaces, according to the company.

OOC represents "the missing link that joins SaaS-identified vulnerabilities and the ability to validate risk through a seamless 'one click' submission for ethical hacker testing," CovertSwarm said.

The platform provides organizations with a portal that they can use to manage their offensive security programs. It also gives organizations insights into their attack surfaces and helps them find ways to improve their security posture.

How CovertSwarm's Offensive Operations Center Platform Works

Organizations can use OOC to request CovertSwarm ethical hacker testing and targeted red team attacks, the company said. They can receive free external asset discovery, passive vulnerability enumeration and threat alerting. Furthermore, organizations can curate CovertSwarm "Attack Plans" that cover digital, social and physical security testing.

CovertSwarm Anders Reeves commented on OOC and how it helps organizations understand what assets they need to protect and figure out the best ways to secure these assets:

"The CovertSwarm Offensive Operations Center enables users to gain real-time attack surface insights, be provided with highly targeted vulnerability detection, and – I believe most importantly – solves how to seamlessly provide an interface for users to submit OOC discovered changes, assets or suspected issues through to our Swarm of ethical hackers for deeper exploration."

The OOC Starter plan is available for free. It provides organizations with up to three user accounts and one domain. External infrastructure asset discovery, passive vulnerability enumeration, basic vulnerability management and threat alerting capabilities are also part of the package, CovertSwarm noted.

A Closer Look at CovertSwarm

CovertSwarm is a global ethical hacker, red team and cybersecurity solution provider that launched in 2020. It provides OOC and red team services designed to help organizations discover security risks, the company indicated.
