In a short demo video see how the CyCognito platform uses nation-state-scale reconnaissance and offensive security techniques to close the gaps left by other security solutions including attack surface management products, vulnerability scanners, penetration testing, and security ratings services.
Key Reasons Why You Cannot Rely Legacy Vulnerability Management:
Attackers often find your security blind spots – your shadow risk – by targeting the IT assets connected to your organization that you don’t know about or manage: assets in partner, cloud and subsidiary environments.
Your shadow risk goes undiscovered by the legacy security risk assessment solutions you use (e.g. vulnerability scanners) because they were designed for the IT environments of twenty years ago, not the IT ecosystem at the heart of your business today. The same is true of attack surface discovery tools like those from RiskIQ and Expanse, which are simply port scanners working within defined or easily discovered IP ranges.
Elimination of shadow risk by illuminating critical blind spots in your attack surface is a goal and an outcome of using the CyCognito platform. The CyCognito platform helps your team discover and understand more about your attack surface, and not just discover open ports.
CyCognito platform also filters out the noise resulting from the use of vulnerability scanners which surface an endless stream of potential vulnerabilities that may be rated as “high” or “critical” using the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS), but do not rise to a priority level for your organization. Attack vectors identified by the CyCognito platform go beyond known vulnerabilities and isolated CVSS scores and are specific to your organization’s attacker-exposed assets and their business relevance.
