Attivo Networks® ThreatDefend Platform and the MITRE ATT&CK Matrix.

White Paper

The MITRE Corporation Adversarial Tactics, Techniques, and Common Knowledge (ATT&CKTM) Matrix provides a model for cyber adversary behavior, reflecting various phases of an adversary’s lifecycle and the platforms they are known to target. Initiated five years ago, it is designed to help determine which technologies work or fail, identify gaps to improve security posture and processes, prioritize work on detecting and deterring techniques, and to evaluate new security technology. ATT&CK is useful for understanding security risk against known adversary behavior, planning security improvements, and verifying defenses work as expected. The goal of ATT&CK is to break down and classify attacks in a consistent and clear manner that can make it easier to compare them to find how the attacker exploited networks and endpoints in a successful compromise.
