Cobalt Strike

Software for Adversary Simulations and Red Team Operations


Why Cobalt Strike?

Cobalt Strike is a powerful threat emulation tool that provides a post-exploitation agent and covert channels ideal for Adversary Simulations and Red Team exercises. With Cobalt Strike, companies can emulate the tactics and techniques of a quiet long-term embedded threat actor in an IT network. Malleable C2 lets you change your network indicators to look like different malware each time. These tools complement Cobalt Strike's solid social engineering process, its robust collaboration capability, and unique reports designed to aid blue team training.

New Cobalt Strike licenses cost $3,500 per user for a one year license. Cobalt Strike can also be bundled with our penetration testing solution, Core Impact, for a reduced price. For more information, check out our pricing page.
