Security Is Built Into Our DNA - For Peace of Mind

As a software security provider, AttackForge is committed to providing highly secure and reliable software for our customers. AttackForge Enterprise Cloud deployment option is built on Microsoft Azure (Azure) and MongoDB Cloud (Mongo) compute and storage ‘As-a-Service’ technologies, which are compliant with a wide variety of industry-accepted security standards, and hosted on dedicated single-tenant infrastructure in any Azure region of your choosing - worldwide.

If you prefer the On-Premises deployment option, AttackForge Enterprise is provided as a Dockerized solution that runs on a single Linux x64 server. It's designed to operate in air-gapped environment, and does not require any Internet connectivity or external dependancies. Installation package can also be run offline. All data persists on the server in Docker volumes. You can adjust the security of your on-premises AttackForge Enterprise tenant to your own security and risk requirements or appetite.

Additionally, our engineers have security backgrounds and utilize proven security technologies and techniques in order to protect our systems, data, and information from unauthorized access in the best possible way.

We rely on a number of strict security controls built into our people, processes and technologies; as well as subject to third party assessments including penetration testing.
