How it works

Comprehensive Attack Surface Exposure Management

CyCognito enables security and operations teams to proactively identify, prioritize, and remediate risk through comprehensive attack surface management.


Discovery

Discover the gaps.

  • Automated discovery of assets uses machine learning (ML), natural language processing (NLP), and a graph data model to first reveal and relate all business relationships in your enterprise, including acquired companies, joint ventures, and cloud environments.
  • Discovering assets autonomously requires no information from organizations to create an asset inventory
  • Continuous automatic discovery uncovers blindspots promptly keeping you ahead of exploits
Contextualization

Get actionable context.

  • Automated contextualization gives you the ability to know everything about your assets including owner, business purpose, attractiveness to attackers, related assets, risk profile
  • Our platform uses intelligent, iterative analysis to take the hassle out of determining who owns assets and what data resides on them.
  • Asset contextualization provides credibility to your Security Ops team so remediation teams can actively support, participate and ensure the right people are
Active Security Testing

Never stop testing.

  • Active security testing goes beyond just identifying the common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) that legacy products reveal and truly uncovers all attack vectors that malicious actors could use to breach your most critical assets.
  • Continuous testing and validation ensures that critical breaches are identified quickly, reducing your Mean time to detection (MTTD) allowing prompting quick response time in blocking attackers.
  • To test all your assets is costly, resource and time driven. Our platform takes the burden and cost out of managing security testing; all tests are completed automatically, at scale.
Prioritization

Prioritize risks.

  • Focus on the few critical attack vectors, not the noise. Our unique analysis prioritizes the hundreds or thousands of critical attack vectors down to the handful that account for the vast majority of your risks.
  • High precision prioritization reduces alert fatigue and improves your team's ability to take action to mitigate critical risks and minimize potential damage as efficiently as possible.
  • Our platform can provide you specific information about most severe vulnerabilities such as Log4j and Log4Shell providing prioritization on the critical assets that have been exposed allowing teams to address newsworthy exposures rapidly.
Remediation Acceleration

Remediation ready.

  • For every risk identified, our platform provides detailed supporting evidence about the risk, asset ownership and actionable validation guidance with exploit threat Intelligence, so security and IT operations teams have a clear path forward.
  • Our frictionless workflow integration capability integrates with the most popular IT technologies, including SIEMs, ITSM, CMDBs, and communications software, to provide CyCognito’s intelligence to organization remediation teams.
  • Provided with the platform is a remediation plan giving you specifics on a prioritized list of assets and issues, the required effort to address them, and what impact its execution will have on the overall security posture within the platform. The Remediation Planner automatically creates a dashboard showing remediation progress against specific goals.

Address gaps proactively.

According to the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 83% of cyberattacks occur through external attack vectors.

The CyCognito platform reveals more of your external attack surface than you were aware of previously. Most customers see at least 30% more. Our platform also tests more of your attack surface than you did before, so you can eliminate the gaps that attackers target and protect your entire attack surface.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know about our platform. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Please reach out to our team.

What are the benefits of attack surface protection?

Organizations cannot remove all of their assets from the internet, otherwise they would be unable to do business in today’s digital world. Attack surface protection delivers more than just a digital asset inventory, it ensures that an organization’s exposed and connected IT assets are known, secure, monitored for issues and defended against attacks.

What are some attack surface reduction and protection best practices?

Attack surface protection best practice includes continuous asset discovery across the entire internet looking for new and existing internet-exposed assets that belong to your company, developing business context about how assets relate to the business, active security testing of those assets, and providing IT teams guidance to expedite remediation.

How can CyCognito help with attack surface protection and reduction?

The platform provides the continuous visibility necessary to understand and truly know your attack surface, even when that attack surface grows and changes daily due to the proliferation of cloud and SaaS applications. The platform also provides the guidance needed by security operations teams to identify high risk areas, monitor threats, and secure those exposed assets.

How does the CyCognito platform deliver ROI?

Please see our blog on the “Build vs Buy” decision and speak to us about a Total Cost of Ownership workshop.

What Open Source Intelligence is used?

A variety of sources are used, including passive DNS, Wikipedia, public financial data, whois, and certificate databases.

How does the CyCognito platform analyze the attack surface?

The CyCognito platform discovers and tests all assets discoverable via the internet. This process finds assets that were previously unknown, unmonitored, and exposed to attack. The platform continuously monitors and tests all assets associated with an organization. It alerts to new, existing, or recurring issues, and provides remediation guidance to fix those issues and eliminate the risk presented by that asset.
