Attack Surface Reduction

Identify the attack surface, discover vulnerabilities, and reduce risks to improve security posture

Are you on top of all your security risks?

With an increase in cloud and digital technologies, more devices, networks, databases, servers, etc. are involved in daily business operations, which increases the company’s attack surface fast. As an organization, you must see your attack surface as an attacker would – always trying to look for security gaps to launch malware or an attack. Are you aware of all assets, security controls, misconfiguration, shadow IT, third-party plugins, attack vectors, and unauthorized access? Is there a detailed inventory in place for you to periodically assess the status?

The need for Attack Surface Reduction for businesses

Any company with an unmanaged external attack surface will have cyber risks looming over it. The majority of organizations have experienced an attack from an unknown or unmanaged asset1. A complex attack surface creates even more challenges for security teams to detect threats and negatively impacts compliance rates. Organizations need to be aware of these implications and actively minimize the attack surface by identifying and securing all the assets and different entry points that a hacker could exploit to launch cyberattacks. Otherwise, chances for a data breach are high.
