Free Book - External Exposure & Attack Surface Management for Dummies
PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA—OCTOBER 24, 2023— CyCognito today announced a major platform expansion of its leading External Attack Surface Management (EASM). The latest release includes extended visibility across cloud assets, web application API endpoints and web application firewalls (WAFs), enhanced web crawling capabilities, compliance management controls, integrations for exploit database remediation and more. Now security teams have greater insight, visibility and guidance to efficiently identify, prioritize, and remediate vulnerabilities.
CyCognito's recent State of External Exposure Management uncovered an alarming number of vulnerable public cloud, mobile and web applications exposing sensitive data. The company revealed that 74 percent of assets with PII are vulnerable to at least one known major exploit, and that 70 percent of web applications have severe security gaps, like lacking WAF protection or an encrypted connection like HTTPS. The findings support the critical need for full-scope visibility in order to manage unmanaged risks across their attack surface.
"Undiscovered and unprotected cloud APIs and applications are an open door to your organization's most critical data, and by far the biggest security threat today," said Ansh Patnaik, Chief Product Officer, CyCognito. "Scaling visibility and protection to stay ahead of continued attack surface growth is critical given the rapid proliferation of applications endpoints. This release reflects our commitment to innovation and to helping our customers safeguard against rising threats."
The new features will extend the power of the CyCognito platform to identify and protect unmanaged assets. Capabilities include:
