Kfivefour, a Red Team assessments, training and penetration testing specialist to the private sector, has emerged from stealth mode and said it is ready to go.

It helps that the company has sprung from Millennium, an Arlington, Virginia-based cybersecurity contractor to the U.S. Department of Defense and other federal agencies providing products, services and solutions, including Red Teaming, penetration testing and security assessments.

Out of the gate, Kfivefour’s value proposition is its ability to draw on Millennium's specialized technical expertise serving the DoD Red Team community, where it executes hundreds of cybersecurity assessments for two of the nine National Security Agency (NSA) certified and U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) accredited Full Spectrum Red Teams. That affiliation should make for an impressive start for Kfivefour with private sector customers.

Kfivefour’s primary lineup includes:

  • Red Team assessments. Examines all aspects of organizational cybersecurity, from technologies to human factors. Suited for organizations wanting to test their ability to protect business assets, according to Kfivefour.
  • Red Team training. Provides knowledge to both offensive and defensive professionals by providing an in-depth understanding of cyber-attacks and better equip them to respond to sophisticated adversaries.
  • Penetration testing. Includes penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, architecture reviews, code reviews, web application assessments, and wireless security assessments, delivered in a four-step process: target reconnaissance, vulnerability enumeration, vulnerability exploitation, and mission accomplishment.

"Having professionals who have developed their unique skills emulating the most sophisticated nation-state cyber adversaries has allowed Kfivefour to deliver an unprecedented level of cybersecurity solutions and training services to our clients," said Keith Peer, Kfivefour chief commercial officer. "Kfivefour assimilates the most current knowledge on the latest advanced cyber threats and maintains a deep understanding of adversarial tactics and techniques. Leveraging the extensive experience in the DoD space, Kfivefour brings an unparalleled level of ability to assess an organizations' security posture and help defend against cyber-attacks," he said.

Kfivefour's services are aimed at chief information security officers, chief information officers and chief technology officers needing to evaluate information technology and operational technology cyber-attack defenses, systems and processes, the company said.
