The modern attack surface has created a massive gap in an organization’s ability to truly understand their cyber exposure.
Where are we exposed?
Where should we prioritize based on risk?
How are we reducing exposure over time?
What Happens When You Outsource Vulnerability Management?
Let’s Talk Asset Discovery
It’s not just that the attack surface is expanding. It’s that legacy tools aren’t sufficient to cover it.
Vulnerability management (VM) tools were often deployed for compliance reasons – to cover just the assets in scope for specific regulations. Then security teams realized VM provides a value proposition around risk/visibility and started expanding the scope to cover all traditional IT assets.
But technology has leapfrogged those tools. We live in a world of cloud, DevOps (containers and microservices and web apps), and IoT/OT. Your organization needs an approach that is flexible enough to cover the entire modern attack surface, as well as expand and contract with it as changes occur.
The bottom line is that legacy tools and approaches simply don’t get the job done today.
