7MS #305: Evaluating Endpoint Protection Solutions - Part 2

Below are show notes for an episode of the 7 Minute Security podcast, a weekly podcast I publish that focuses on topics such as penetration testing, network configuration, blue-teaming and career advice. I welcome you to subscribe in your favorite podcast app so you don't miss an episode!


Today is part two of evaluating endpoint solutions, where I primarily focus on Caldera which is an adversary simulation system that's really awesome! You can essentially setup a virtual attacker and cut it loose on some test machines, which is what I did as part of an endpoint protection evaluation project.

The attacks simulated are from Adversarial Tactics, Techniques & Common Knowledge (ATT&CK) project. So the big question is...did any of these endpoint solutions catch some of the simulated ATT&CKs? Check out today's podcast to find out!

Oh, and I wrote up my quick install guide for Caldera here.
