The modern attack surface has created a massive gap in an organization’s ability to truly understand their cyber exposure.
The larger the gap, the greater the risk of a business-impacting cyber event occurring. Traditional Vulnerability Management is no longer sufficient. Managed Vulnerability Management extends vulnerability management by covering the breadth of the attack surface (IT, Cloud, IoT/OT) and provide a depth of insight into the data (including prioritization/analytics/decision support). We help security leaders answer the following questions:
Where are we exposed?
What assets are affected, where, and what is the significance/severity? The changing technology and threat landscape have made this harder to see.
Where should we prioritize based on risk?
Data overload and lack of security staffing have made this more important than ever.
How are we reducing exposure over time?
Security leaders want to understand and report on their progress and show the value of their investments to senior management.
What Happens When You Outsource Vulnerability Management?
Identify and map every asset for visibility across any computing environment
Prioritize which exposures to fix first, if at all, and apply the appropriate remediation technique
Understand the state of all assets, including vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and other health indicators
Model and analyze cyber exposure to make better business and technology decisions
Understand exposures in context, to prioritize remediation based on asset criticality, threat context and vulnerability severity
Cybriant’s staff of security experts will work report and give security and IT teams complete and accurate visibility and insight.
Let’s Talk Asset Discovery
The greatest challenge for many security teams is simply seeing all the assets in their environment. Adversaries now have a much larger attack surface to probe and attack you across – and those adversaries can see everything and will attack you wherever they find a weak link.
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.
