SpecterOps launches partner program to bring attack path management solution to the channel


SpecterOps, a provider of adversary-focused cybersecurity solutions born out of unique insights of advanced threat actor tradecraft, has launched its channel partner program.

All SpecterOps security products and services will be available to channel partners including BloodHound Enterprise (BHE), the security industry’s first Attack Path Management (APM) platform for controlling the serious risk of Attack Paths in Active Directory and Azure AD/Entra ID. SpecterOps’ security assessments, red team program development services, and their Adversary Tactics training courses will also be available via the channel.

The channel program will include a partner portal, protected deal registration discounts, MDF (market development funds), Not-for-Resale licenses, the ability to align on previously direct opportunities and for partners to add their remediation professional services. Current partners include Quest, LiquidPC, Solutions Simplified, Compunet, and Trace3.

“We see the benefits and value in our early stage partnership with SpecterOps,” said Courtney Colla, Director of Sales at LiquidPC. “With BloodHound Enterprise they’re offering an innovative, practical solution to a problem that end users and customers are struggling with. Their security expertise and recognition in the industry is well known and makes BHE a valued software upgrade or option to supplement training/services.”

SpecterOps’ mix of products and services offers many advantages for partners. Their large pool of current training and services customers and widespread name recognition creates many cross-sell and upsell opportunities. 

The company is widely known for open-source tools and research; employees have made over 400 security community contributions and created 93 open-source security tools. BloodHound Enterprise is a SaaS platform that gives partners opportunities to earn margins, or to add their own remediations or professional services on top of it.  

“We’ve done some selective channel sales over the last few years, and now with this formal program we’re fully embracing a channel-first go-to-market strategy,” said Don Landers, Channel Lead at SpecterOps. “We have several unique advantages that create competitive opportunities for partners thanks to our large roster of training and consulting customers, a first-of-its-kind product in BloodHound Enterprise, and our deep relationships in the security community.” 

BloodHound Enterprise is an Attack Path Management security solution for defending Microsoft Active Directory and Azure AD/Entra ID. Managing the risk posed by Identity Attack Paths in Active Directory and Azure AD/Entra ID is a vital but often overlooked area of security as the industry moves towards Zero Trust. BHE was launched in 2021 and BHE product revenue grew 200% year over year over the past two years. 

Protecting Microsoft Active Directory (AD) is important because it’s an attacker’s favorite target. It’s used extensively throughout the Fortune 500 for identity and access management and attackers can abuse it to give themselves control of nearly any other system. Getting control of AD makes it easy to accomplish their objective, like deploying ransomware or stealing sensitive data. 

Misconfigurations and errors in AD – which are unavoidable at enterprises because of their size and compound over time – create Attack Paths that adversaries can use to get control of AD. BloodHound Enterprise finds the riskiest and most dangerous Attack Paths and tells defenders how to remove them without affecting other business processes. It’s the first practical defensive tool to help defenders secure AD.
