No surprise here – the ever-changing threat landscape means security is more dynamic than ever. While security leaders must continue to worry about the fundamentals, the ongoing digital transformation has added new complexities to consider. One clear example is the rising dependence on external IT infrastructures from third parties and supply chains, which have permanently extended the attack surface and created new management headaches.
Another area of concern is shadow IT. Increasingly, employees outside IT view themselves as business technologists, focused on creating new technologies for internal or external use. With remote access to cloud infrastructure and open source apps, these employees can create and deploy risky technical solutions outside traditional security and change control.
In a recent article on enterprise-wide vulnerability and threat management, Gartner coined the term EASM (Extended Attack Surface Management) as a new security paradigm to describe some of these new issues and the way forward to address them. EASM complements traditional threat and vulnerability management programs by adding an external point of view.
Dealing with these new issues means re-examining the vulnerability and risk management solutions you have for 2022. Some top features to address these new areas include:
1. Simplified security management – a console to integrate visibility across your security solutions
Time to switch to a simplified way of monitoring your complete IT Stack. It is necessary to obliterate the need to use multiple tools to assess and monitor the various aspects of security for your infrastructure, ESOF allows you to integrate and have a complete view on a single platform. Making it the only product with the widest visibility capabilities in the industry.
2. External asset assessment – discovery and risk assessment of all external assets
Prevention is the key in cybersecurity. It is imperative to know the vulnerabilities and possible vulnerable points to always stay a step ahead of the attackers. Know the vulnerable assets in your systems, external too.
3. Cyber security risk quantification – typically a cyber risk score to improve risk communication
Cyber Risk Scores are the Future. A cyber score will be as important as a credit score in the near future for an organization to maintain a certain level which will help them to be accepted and trusted by the people and law.
4. Threat intelligence – finding and eliminating zero-day threats in your environment
Find out the zero-day threats in your environment before they become a loophole or a weakness to attack. Gather data from across the globe about the recent hacks and vulnerabilities found in the industry, monitor and gauge if they exist in your systems and eliminate them.
5. True risk prioritization – identifying with precision the vulnerabilities to fix to reduce risk
Got innumerable vulnerabilities and don’t know where to start first? Sometimes, most critical vulnerabilities are the smallest ones in the system, and if not prioritized to patch may be the cause of an undiscounted breach. Let the system now prioritize while giving you a tailored remediation facilitating your environment.
TAC Security has already responded to these fundamental changes and created a solution for cybersecurity’s future. ESOF (Enterprise Security – One Framework) provides all the tools you need for advanced vulnerability and threat management in one platform.
