Evaluate Network Security with GuardiCore’s Infection Monkey—a Breach and Attack Simulation Tool

Ensuring that proper security measures are in place calls for robust security testing mechanisms. GuardiCore’s Infection Monkey is an open source Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) tool that tests and evaluates the effectiveness of your network security configurations during post-breach attacks. You can simulate a breach by “infecting” a server with a “Monkey” that runs around your network using various methods to enter propagation paths and attacks each point of vulnerability it discovers.
