The Artistic Nature of The External Attack Surface

What’s the attack surface of our Information Technology? Which are the exploitable digital assets? Are we even aware of all the doors and windows a cyber-burglar could leverage to enter our shop? 

Enough with the questions! 

We simply don’t have all the answers. 

We have a partial picture of our rather ambiguous attack surface, as it continues to change as the tech stack and services evolve. 

Security teams must get a handle on this shape-shifting entity, validate it often, and fix what needs fixing. 

It’s not a form of art. It’s a science. 

What’s needed is a platform that can continuously map-n-validate the attack surface and prompt you to fix the gaps that may have been created over time. 

The good news – that technology is here. Check out Pentera.
