Attack Surface Risk Reduction

Mitigating Cyber Threats by Minimizing Your Organization's Attack Surface

One of the biggest challenges that organizations face is understanding the scope and complexity of their attack surface. The attack surface includes all the ways that an attacker could potentially breach a company’s defenses and gain unauthorized access to sensitive data, systems, and assets. As businesses continue to adopt new technologies and expand their digital footprint, their attack surface grows, making it more difficult to manage and secure. To reduce the risk of cyber attacks, it’s crucial to have a comprehensive understanding of the organization’s attack surface and to implement effective risk reduction strategies.

With XM Cyber for attack surface risk reduction, the continuous exposure management platform provides a holistic approach by identifying and prioritizing risks across the entire attack surface, including cloud and on-prem environments. With our advanced Attack Path Modeling technology, you can simulate and visualize real-world attack scenarios, detect and prioritize vulnerabilities, and measure your security posture over time. By continuously monitoring your organization’s attack surface and prioritizing remediation efforts based on real-world risk, you can improve your cyber security posture and reduce the likelihood of successful cyber attacks.
