With the expanding attack surface and the ever-changing and complex modern technology environment, organizations need a systematic way to manage the risks associated with their externally facing systems.
That means selecting, deploying, and using an external attack surface management platform. The EASM platform will continuously seek to discover Internet-facing systems mentioned earlier (cloud infrastructure, third-party systems, web applications, etc.), uncover the vulnerabilities in those systems, and then prioritize and help manage their remediation.
The very nature of vulnerability management requires a continuous process, which is true for EASM.
This buyer’s guide covers the emerging External Attack Surface Management space, what the technology is designed to address, how it results in risk reduction, and how to find and deploy the ideal EASM platform.
