I’m thrilled to unveil our new identity: Cyberpion is now IONIX, a name that represents our radically different approach to protecting the modern attack surface and its digital supply chain. With IONIX, you’ll discover your organization’s real attack surface, including its sprawling network of asset dependencies – while separating the signal from the noise so your security team gains laser focus on your exploitable risks.
Organizations face a growing number of external cyber threats that are becoming increasingly sophisticated and harder to detect. With the rise of remote work and cloud-based technologies, organizations’ attack surface has expanded significantly, making it difficult for security teams to maintain a strong defensive posture.
At Detectify, we proudly maintain an AppSec perspective when it comes to how we handle security. But what does this mean exactly? In short, we think a lot about how both AppSec teams and developers will experience our platform and products. We know that today’s developers are feeling the pressure to get new code out to production to meet the demands of the business. These business demands have increased the need for AppSec tooling to leverage automation whenever possible.
Today’s organizations have a plethora of tools and technologies to protect their systems and assets. While this is certainly a privilege, it can sometimes be tough to keep up with the ever-expanding lists of acronyms and tools out there.
A critical part of an organization’s overall cybersecurity strategy, Attack Surface Management (ASM) helps organizations to: This article describes ASM is, including why it is needed and how it works. At the end, I’ll discuss how software solutions can automate attack surface management. (This article was written by Shanika Wickramasinghe. See more of Shanika's contributions to Splunk Learn.)
Attack surface management (ASM) is becoming increasingly important for businesses today. The attack surface is expanding and becoming more complex than ever before, driven by numerous factors, including the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting shift to remote work, widespread cloud adoption and the resulting growth of shadow IT, increased use of managed services (SaaS), and third-party vendor services.
Attack surface management (ASM) and vulnerability management (VM) are often confused, but they’re not the same. The primary difference between the two is scope: Attack surface management and external attack surface management (EASM) assume that a company has many unknown assets and therefore begin with discovery. Vulnerability management, on the other hand, operates on the list of known assets.
