ATTACK SURFACE MANAGEMENT SERVICES

Risk Cognizance managed attack surface management is the continuous process of discovering, classifying, and assessing the security of an organization’s assets.

Risk Cognizance provides comprehensive next-generation attack surface management, cybersecurity ratings, and risk management solution that assesses internal and third-party risks for businesses worldwide

External Attack Surface Management Services

Risk Cognizance External Attack Surface Management’s continuous discovery, inventory, classification, and monitoring of an organization’s IT infrastructure is known as attack surface management. Although the term sounds similar to asset discovery and asset management, Risk Cognizance approaches these and other security tasks from the perspective of an attacker.

Attack surface management (ASM) is the continuous discovery, analysis, remediation, and monitoring of an organization’s cybersecurity vulnerabilities and potential attack vectors.

Unlike other cybersecurity disciplines, ASM is conducted entirely from the perspective of a hacker rather than the defender. It identifies targets and evaluates risks based on the opportunities they provide a malicious attacker. ASM employs many of the same methods and resources that hackers do, and many ASM tasks and technologies are devised and carried out by ‘ethical hackers’ who are familiar with cybercriminals’ behaviors and adept at replicating their actions.

MANAGED ATTACK SURFACE SERVICES

Continuously discover, evaluate, and mitigate attack surface risk; with a complete asset inventory, discover the attack surface you didn’t know existed, find vulnerabilities before attackers, and mitigate risks proactively. Every external-facing asset provides attackers with another way to get inside your organization. Risk Cognizance Security identifies your entire attack surface so that no threats can slip under the radar.

DATA LEAK SECURITY SCORECARD

The data leak module employs chatter and deep web monitoring capabilities to detect compromised credentials distributed by hackers.

NETWORK SECURITY ATTACK SURFACE

The Network Security module searches public datasets for evidence of high-risk or insecure open ports within the organization’s network. ASM helps make your SOC more efficient, reducing the human effort to inventory assets, evaluate risks, and investigate stakeholder information, as well as eliminating the need for point-in-time analysis programs. A major concern for CISOs is the downtime and remediation associated with ransomware and data breaches more generally. ASM can be incredibly valuable in reducing the costs associated with cyberattacks by helping discover exposures, prioritize risk management, and ensure risks are remediated before they can be exploited.

DNS SECURITY ATTACK SURFACE

The DNS Health module monitors and configures an organization’s DNS settings. It verifies that no malicious events occurred in the organization’s network’s passive DNS history.

MISSED PATCH CADENCE ATTACK SURFACE SECURITY

The Patching Cadence module measures vulnerability risk mitigation practices by analyzing how quickly an organization installs security updates.

APPLICATION ATTACK SURFACE SECURITY

The Application Security module gathers threat intelligence from known exploitable conditions identified through whitehat CVE databases, blackhat exploits databases, and sensitive findings indexed by major search engines.

WHAT EXACTLY IS AN ATTACK SURFACE?

Attack surface management is the continuous discovery, monitoring, evaluation, prioritization and remediation of attack vectors within an organization’s IT infrastructure.

To begin, it is critical to understand what we mean by the attack surface. An attack surface is the sum of an organization’s attacker-exposed IT assets, whether these digital assets are secure or vulnerable, known or unknown, in active use or not, regardless of IT or security team is aware of them. The attack surface of an organization evolves over time and includes digital assets on-premises, in the cloud, and subsidiary networks, as well as those in the environments of third-party vendors.
