We Are Optiv
Greatness is every team working toward a common goal. Winning in spite of cyber threats and overcoming challenges in spite of them. It’s building for a future that only you can create or simply coming home in time for dinner.
However you define greatness, Optiv is in your corner. We manage cyber risk so you can secure your full potential.
Become the Enemy
You don’t know what you don’t know. But the bad guys do.
Vulnerabilities in your software, hardware and end-user environments are a hacker playground – to the tune of $6 trillion a year (a number that’s skyrocketing). Regular testing is essential, but a proactive strategy integrates training and resources that go beyond one-off testing.
Pen testing finds vulnerabilities, known and unknown, but just finding them isn’t the story. The real value is what they teach us and how our red teamers can inform your risk calculations down the road. This intel is so valuable to your organization’s decision-makers, in fact, that yearly one-off tests aren’t adequate. You’re going to want this context continuously.
In other words, we help you predict and preempt attacks with penetration testing services that “respond” before the hackers get out of bed.
As Sun-Tzu advised, become the enemy.
In 2018 there were 30 million cyber attacks in the US. The threat is increasing – in both numbers and sophistication. But you can substantially lessen your exposure.
Our pen test team serves more than 60% of the Fortune 500 and has helped thousands of organizations uncover hidden vulnerabilities in their technology, processes and people.
How effective are our pen testers? 75% of vulnerabilities exploited by the Optiv team were not identified by standard automated tools. That’s a number you can take to the board.
Effective penetration test results:
Security penetration tests typically involve manual and automated components, as well as white- and black-box testing aimed at compromising endpoints, wireless networks, mobile devices, web application security and other potential points of exposure. Because of the human in the loop, a pen test may identify flaws and weaknesses that automated scanning may miss.

Years of combined red
Pen tests are important, but the even-more-effective approach injects continuity via a customized threat management program, which augments the basic offering with:
Your options, from a 30,000-foot perspective.
Continuous testing (aka attack surface management) constantly refreshes the picture of the attack surface from the assailant’s perspective, informing the risk calculation as the business drives changes into the operating environment.
This strategy takes a holistic view of the attack surface, focusing on breadth to identify all vulnerabilities in scope and illustrate their impacts, were they to be exploited.
Targeting the network from an adversarial perspective can result in lateral movement and the compromise of sensitive data and resources, ultimately identifying gaps in a company’s security strategy.
Our tech teams never stop thinking. Here’s an example of the sort of thought leadership support available to our clients.
Here’s how a pen test works:
Gather and evaluate all pertinent information from the client, then conduct supplementary research using public sources. This affords a broad understanding of the security context.
Using data from step one, audit and assess the client’s network, infrastructure and assets to identify possible points of vulnerability.
Using known real-world tactics, techniques and procedures – including digital and physical methods – the red team seeks to breach client defenses.
Review & Report
Attack team develops a full report of all activities, highlighting vulnerabilities and the steps taken to exploit them.
Client blue team and security partners implement recommendations, thus reducing the risk of attack.
Lather, rinse, repeat. Pen tests should be conducted periodically to a) check on previously identified/remediated vulnerabilities, and b) analyze defenses versus new and emerging threats.
