Unified Attack Surface Management (U-ASM)




Unified Attack Surface Management (U-ASM)

As cyber threats grow in sophistication, it becomes harder to defend against them. At the same time, as an organisation's digital footprint grows, it gets more challenging for the security team to track and mitigate external weaknesses. 

This is where Attack Surface Monitoring (ASM) comes in – a powerful tool that helps you identify, prioritise, and mitigate your external weaknesses, which can become a point of entry for attackers. 

ASM continuously scans and assesses your digital assets for vulnerabilities and weaknesses, which helps you gain the attacker's point of view, resulting in a proactive and effective approach to security. 

By identifying your weaknesses the same way an attacker does, ASM gives you the context and ability to focus your mitigative measures on what matters the most, resulting in noticeable improvements in your security posture with minimal resource exhaustion. 

Key features of CyberTI' U-ASM:

  • omain and Subdomain discovery: Scan through your enterprise environment's domains and subdomains. This results in identifying unknown (To the security team) or obsolete domains that have gone under the radar.  

  • IP discovery: Scan for IP addresses to identify and track all devices in use or abandoned within the environment, paving the way for simplified compliance. 

  • Open Port Discovery: Scan for open ports and identify changes to them, which can result in identifying unsecured and unapproved applications within your environment. 

  • DNS Discovery: Identify malicious, unknown, unmonitored, and newly registered domains, enhancing the threat detection capability and preventing them from being used to undertake fraudulent campaigns  

  • SSL Certificate Discovery: Scan for expired and misconfigured certificates, which result in downgraded security for your employees and customers.  

  • Web Server Discovery: Scanning web servers for misconfigurations, injection flaws, and exploitable vulnerabilities. 

  • Similar Domain Discovery: Look for similar domains that can be used in phishing campaigns against you and your customers.  

  • Vulnerability Discovery: Scan for vulnerabilities in your assets and prioritize them based on their exploitability and impact. 

  • Compromised Credential Discovery: Monitor the Dark web and cybercrime forums for stolen credentials from your employees or customers. 

  • Data correlation for better visibility: Legacy threat intelligence and ASM solutions overload you by giving you too much information with limited context, inhibiting your ability to prioritize and respond to your weaknesses. By correlating the data, we help you gain the necessary insight to mitigate your weaknesses with minimal effort. 

  • Asset Inventory: Providing visibility of all external assets helps you get a bird's eye view of what you are exposing to the world. 

  • New Asset Detection: Scan for any new assets, which will help you identify unsecured and unapproved services. 

  • Configuration Change detection: Scan for any changes in the configuration across your assets to identify misconfigurations or potentially malicious activity. 

ASM Key benefits:

  • Increased Visibility: Identify hidden assets and applications, ensuring nothing goes under the radar. 

  • Vulnerability assessment: Identification of vulnerabilities and effective prioritisation so that the critical vulnerabilities get immediate attention. 

  • Early detection: Early detection helps prepare security teams for potential breaches by identifying critical assets and crafting appropriate response plans for quick remediation and recovery. 

  • Misconfigured Device detection: Misconfigured devices can lead to attackers exploiting the vulnerabilities. 

  • Brand Protection: Monitoring for the unauthorised use of logos and company intellectual property helps protect your reputation and intellectual property. 

  • Identifying and removing fake products bearing company brand names  

  • Detecting social media accounts or other online entities impersonating the brand  

  • Scanning for misinformation, negative views and brand-damaging content. 

  • Scanning for domain names that are similar to company domain names, thus preventing typosquatting attacks. 

  • Reduce Risk by identifying vulnerabilities before the threat actors, resulting in faster incident response and improved compliance by enabling comprehensive visibility into the company’s security posture.  

  • Automation  

  • Scan Cost reduction 

  • What is cloud security?
    Cloud security encompasses strategies and technologies that protect data, applications and infrastructures in cloud computing. It offers a holistic approach to defend against threats through effective cloud security management.
  • What are common threats to cloud security?
    Common threats include data breaches, inadequate access controls, account hijacking, insider threats and insecure interfaces. Proactive cyber security services for the cloud address these concerns.
  • What are the benefits of cloud security services?
    Cloud security services offer protection from breaches, ensure regulatory compliance, secure data transfers, minimise downtimes and facilitate effective risk management.
  • How does cloud security protect organisational data and assets?
    Cloud security implements layers of defence, including encryption, firewalls and intrusion detection systems. Professional services offer expert monitoring and response mechanisms.
  • How is identity and access management handled in the cloud?
    It involves multi-factor authentication (MFA), stringent user access controls and continuous monitoring. Cloud security management tools allow real-time access adjustments and activity tracking.
