Effitas Research was created because MRG Effitas observed the need for a paradigm shift in the way the mainstream security assessment labs operated.
Under the “traditional” model, threat actors (malware developers and hackers) created a new threat. Security vendors observed the new threat and created new technology to counter this. Testing labs assessed the efficacy of the new technology with old testing methodologies.
We believed that, to provide more objective efficacy assessments, we needed to act more like the threat actors and be proactive.
We achieve this by:
Effitas Research combats Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) by providing the technology required to test in the Next-Gen endpoint and network spaces.
All of the above means that Effitas has a greater technical capability in simulating APT actors than any other testing lab and helps drive and facilitate INNOVATION.
