The increase in remote and hybrid work over recent years, and the shift to the cloud and implementation of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications have made attack surfaces increasingly large and complex. (Attack surfaces refer to the total possible entry points for unauthorized access into any system.)
As a result, organizations face the challenge of continuously monitoring their attack surfaces to identify and respond to threats as soon as possible. This is where attack surface management (ASM) can help.
This white paper outlines the benefits of ASM and explains how it works, including:
- Discovering and monitoring potential attack vectors such as:
- On-premise assets
- Cloud assets
- External assets
- Subsidiary networks
- The four automated processes that must be carried out continuously as the size of the digital attack surface is constantly in flux, including:
- Asset discovery
- Classification and prioritization
