Pathfynder Comprehensive Cybersecurity Strategy_edited.jpg

Pathfynder provides tactical offensive cybersecurity expertise to navigate the changing cyber landscape. 

Simulate cyberattacks to identify vulnerabilities.

Pathfynder’s ethical attackers bring the knowledge, skill, and adaptability you need to navigate these challenges. They simulate real-world attacks against your company to identify weaknesses before they can be exploited by malicious attackers.

Internal Penetration Test

This assessment simulates a compromised host from a successful phishing attack or a malicious insider. Using the MITRE ATT&CK framework, we start as a low-level user and mirror attacker techniques to access information that is important to your business. This attack simulation provides valuable insights to reinforce defenses, such as the use of security best practices and the ability of your defenses and people to detect and prevent an attack. 

Purple Team

Instead of a purely adversarial engagement, this more collaborative approach to our offensive services is structured to train the security team. Our dedicated team of senior experts work with defenders in real-time to convey key findings and detail how and why they were exploited, reinforcing defenses while helping defenders think more like an attacker so they can effectively defend against them.

Web Application Penetration Test

We conduct a thorough evaluation of your web applications and APIs to identify and evaluate security risks. Adhering to the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES), we enumerate the application, scan with custom scripts and industry-standard tools, and perform manual runtime analysis to exploit identified vulnerabilities by fuzzing and attacking segments of the attack surface with various payloads. This thorough approach will help identify and correct deficiencies before your adversaries exploit them.

Mobile Application Penetration Test

We evaluate the security of your iOS and Android applications by employing the same tools and techniques attackers do to identify security flaws, authentication and access control issues, and other weaknesses attackers could exploit. We follow OWASP Mobile Security best practices and proprietary techniques to thoroughly assess this critical business asset and the APIs that support it.

ICS/OT/SCADA Penetration Test

Our certified Global Industrial Cyber Security Professionals (GICSP) have years of experience designing, commissioning, maintaining, and securing SCADA and ICS environments. We understand the level of complexity and sensitivity of your organization’s systems, and customize testing to meet your unique business and environment needs. This expert approach provides a clear understanding of your security posture without causing unnecessary downtime.

Laptop Exploitation Assessment

The  growing mobile workforce trend means organizations have more hardware outside of controlled company facilities vulnerable to being lost or  stolen. We assess the risk of your hardware to compromise by an attacker with remote and physical device access by conducting host-based reconnaissance of applications, testing endpoint security, and  exploiting vulnerabilities to gain elevated access.

Hardware Penetration Test

Our team conducts thorough assessments of hardware devices to identify and mitigate cybersecurity risks. Leveraging industry-leading frameworks such as OWASP IoT Security Testing Guide, MITRE, and PTES, we meticulously analyze physical, software, firmware, and IoT vulnerabilities. By simulating sophisticated attacks, we evaluate the device's resilience against advanced cyber threats. This comprehensive approach helps safeguard sensitive data, comply with regulations, and ensure the uninterrupted functionality of critical equipment.

M&A Cyber Due Diligence

Understanding the cyber risk of a potential business acquisition or investment is a critical part of the deal process. We conduct a thorough  assessment of external and internal systems to baseline overall security posture. This analysis will reduce the likelihood of inheriting an active compromise, identify critical vulnerabilities that require immediate attention, and provide data-driven input to the medium and long term security roadmap. 

External Penetration Test

Leveraging the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES), we enumerate your systems and services to identify weaknesses and confirm the valid attack vectors of your organization. Our experienced operators tailor each engagement by augmenting industry-standard tools with custom scripts and programs that emulate real-world attacks to test how secure your assets are against not only run-of-the-mill hackers, but also sophisticated attackers.


Safeguard your company's reputation, assets, and customers.

By identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities, companies can reduce the risk of a cyberattack and the significant financial losses and reputational damage that follow. Furthermore, our offensive services help your company comply with regulatory requirements and certifications such as HIPAA, GDPR, PCI DSS, and SOC 2.


Pathfynder’s offensive cybersecurity services can be a valuable tool for organizations looking to strengthen their security posture and mitigate the risk of cyberattacks. And with the increasing sophistication of cyberattacks, it's essential for companies to invest in realistic attack simulations to ensure your defenses remain relevant and assets protected.
