We hack the planet.​

That is the Rotas Security motto. That motto encompasses our ethos; We perform adversarial cybersecurity assessments, at the request of our partners, to help them recognize the efficacy of their defenses.

We are dedicated to ensuring our partners have a clear path to the highest possible cybersecurity posture. We do this through practical, realistic assessment of IT assets, personnel, and processes. We perform our assessments leveraging adversarial techniques honed over more than two decades of experience executing threat simulations for a wide variety of organizations.

Rotas leverages a threat-informed penetration testing methodology designed to showcase strengths and weaknesses in targeted environments. Rotas’ experience crosses multiple industries, to include the Military, as well as the private and public sectors.

We help you recognize, fine-tune, and realize the value of your telemetry and defenses.
