THE MODERN ATTACK SURFACE
Organizations of all sizes have embraced digital transformation to create new business models and ecosystems, deliver new products and services and operate more efficiently in the digital economy. New digital compute platforms and development shifts such as cloud, mobile, SaaS and DevOps have made it possible to move from concept to capability on a daily basis. Physical devices and systems of all types – from corporate conference systems to power grids – are now network connected and programmable, creating even more opportunities for digital transformation.
Some say these digital technologies are the future. But the truth is, the future is here and now. By 2019, there will be over 9 billion IoT devices deployed in the enterprise and over 90% of organizations have applications running in the cloud today.
While digital transformation opens up a whole new world of opportunities, this is your new cyber attack surface to defend.
And it’s exploding.
THE CYBER EXPOSURE GAP
The tools and approaches organizations are using to understand cyber risk don’t even work in the old world of client/server, on-premise data centers and a linear software development lifecycle where there is less complexity and more control over security. An asset is no longer just a laptop or server. It’s now a complex mix of digital compute platforms and assets which represent your modern attack surface, where the assets themselves and their associated vulnerabilities are constantly expanding, contracting and evolving – like a living organism.
This elastic attack surface has created a massive gap in an organization’s ability to truly understand its Cyber Exposure at any given time. We call this the Cyber Exposure gap.
ORGANIZATIONS ATTEMPT TO CLOSE THE CYBER EXPOSURE GAP IN A FEW WAYS
Throw hundreds of security tools at the problem to protect from the ‘threat of the week’, creating siloed visibility, management overhead and reactive firefighting.
Rely on a CMDB to get visibility into assets and their configurations, but 85% of these projects fail in part due to the stale data – and CMDBs weren’t built to discover and map today’s modern assets.
Take a ‘scan the network’ approach to identify vulnerabilities. While this is foundational to understanding your Cyber Exposure gap, the old “one size fits all” techniques and tools haven’t adapted for the modern attack surface.
No one has been able to provide the visibility and focus required to close the Cyber Exposure gap against the modern attack surface.
