Over the last few weeks, Safe-T has provided a basic introduction to the tools and operating systems that you’ll use as a member or leader of a red team. Now, let’s contextualize them – how would you use these tools in the context of an actual security exercise?
For a certain kind of secure communication, Server Message Block (SMB) is no longer suited for the task. Windows machines use SMB to pass files around a network. Printers, mail servers, and high-priority internal network segments use SMB to provide access to remote users. Although SMB is convenient for Windows and other networks, it’s also convenient for attackers.
At Safe-T, we’ve been delivering innovative, award-winning solutions based on our Software Defined Access solution for years. Part of the value we offer is in accelerating ROI by enabling customers to plug-in solutions from third-party security vendors, enhancing existing protections.

Knowing what's changing in the tech world is a crucial way to drive your own IT department and compete in business. For example, over the past year, quite a few CISOs and other execs have had to brush up on their knowledge of trends like cloud service delivery and container virtualization.
