Improve Pen Testing Outcomes With Purple Teaming – PSW #634

January 10, 2020



Purple teaming reduces the lifespan of vulnerabilities found from pentests by facilitating knowledge transfer between red and blue teams in the remediation phase. PlexTrac provides a single interface through which red teams may report vulnerabilities and blue teams may remediate them. Visit to claim your free month of PlexTrac. Also, be sure to stop by their booth in the Early Stage Exhibit at RSA next month.

Improve Pen Testing Outcomes With Purple Teaming

Additional Notes:

  • Purple Team - We don’t have a full-blown internal pen test team, but hire externally. We run purple teaming exercises and track issues and remediation with PlexTrac.
  • The living report - Pen testers must continuously work with the client to collaborate on the findings and remediation.
  • Pull in vulnerability data from multiple sources - How should you prioritize? How does PlexTrac help?
  • Purple Team Cheat Sheet, Demo videos of new features
