Attack Surface Management (ASM)

Acquire comprehensive visibility and control over your organisation's attack surface with human driven attack surface management.

Prioritise and address the most critical areas of concern for your organisation with precision.

The average organisation’s attack surface today can encompass as much externally facing infrastructure as a multinational company 5-10 years ago. It’s no wonder the most critical threats are still slipping through the cracks with such a vast number of attack vectors to protect.

JUMPSEC Attack Surface Mapping, gives you a comprehensive understanding of your attack surface from the perspective of an attacker along with the evidence required to prioritise your remediation efforts. pinpointing the most critical threats concealed in your expanding attack surface, so you can focus your defensive controls where they matter most.

This can be achieved via a point-in-time Attack Surface Mapping (ASM) engagement or through our

JUMPSEC’s ASM and CASM capability enable you to:

  • Comprehensively map your organisation’s entire attack surface.
  • Assess vulnerabilities based on exploitation rather than simple severity scores, and identify previously unknown, or risk-accepted, weaknesses.
  • Continuously monitor your network and systems for changes and emerging threats.
  • Integrate existing security tools and systems with JUMPSEC’s wider security capability.
  • Flex and scale Attack Surface Management as your business evolves over time.

To be truly effective human-driven context is crucial

Real-world attackers use automated tools, however the ability to understand the unique characteristics of an organisation’s infrastructure and analyse where individual system components could be leveraged in combination requires contextual intelligence that automated tools miss due to their limited scope.

Benefit of using JUMPSEC ASM

Our human-driven, technology-enabled service complements traditional methods of security assurance,  providing a balance between ‘wide and shallow’ vulnerability scanning and ‘narrow and deep’ penetration testing. Our approach requires a true partnership to understand your organisation to provide a contextually accurate and comprehensive understanding of risks associated with your organisation’s entire digital footprint, extending past the traditional perimeter.

Key Benefits

With JUMPSEC Attack Surface Management you can expect to:

02

Discover Key Vulnerabilities

Uncover the hidden weaknesses, misconfigurations, and unpatched systems. We actively identify entry points that attackers could exploit, giving you the upper hand in fortifying your overall cyber defences.

03

Reduce Long-term Risks

With ASM your security teams can focus their efforts on targeted remediation and mitigation strategies. By systematically reducing risk exposure, you ensure the utmost protection for your critical assets and sensitive data.

05

Streamline Remediation

Efficiently enhance your mean-time-to-patch and optimise your remediation efforts with an experienced third-party security provider.

06

False Positive Reduction

Automated scanning tools often generate a significant number of false positives, leading to unnecessary alerts and potentially overwhelming security teams. We filter out false positives and focus on the most critical vulnerabilities, minimising the risk of alert fatigue and ensuring that limited resources are allocated effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is attack surface management?

An ‘attack surface’ is the sum total of all the points or vectors which an attacker could potentially target to gain unauthorised access to systems, networks, or applications. It represents the vulnerable areas or entry points which could be maliciously exploited, including various software, hardware, network infrastructure, user accounts, or external connections.

Crucially, an attack surface encompasses both known and unknown vulnerabilities or risks with your network. This includes potential misconfigurations, unpatched software, inadequate security controls, poor coding practices, and shadow IT which may be discovered presenting opportunities for attackers to breach your perimeter.. By identifying previously unknown vulnerabilities, whilst validating existing concerns (i.e attack vectors or entry points), Attack Surface Mapping and ongoing management enables data-driven decisions and prioritised security actions to be effective over time as your network changes and grows.

Why mapping your attack surface is key.

While organisations may already possess fragments of their current attack surface from disparate activities like vulnerability management, penetration testing or threat intelligence platforms, Attack Surface Mapping (ASM) elevates the visibility of your entire network to a significantly more advanced level and draws these different sources together into one comprehensive overview.

The primary advantage of ASM is the ability to provide an all-encompassing, contextualised view that consolidates and amplifies existing knowledge, presenting a comprehensive snapshot of your key exposures.
