Advice on External Attack Surface Management (EASM) Selection: Pure Play vs. Bundled

Enterprise teams must decide whether to select a pure-play or bundled solution for external attack surface management. This report outlines the respective pros and cons.

External attack surface management (EASM) has become mandatory for most enterprise security programs. Without EASM coverage, it’s difficult for security teams to understand how an adversary can target their organization, especially with the dissolution of the traditional perimeter.

The primary means for obtaining EASM support has involved working with a cybersecurity vendor offering a pure-play solution. More recently, however, we’ve observed a wave of transactions in which smaller commercial vendors providing EASM-like capabilities have been acquired by larger companies for integration into their more comprehensive offerings. So how does one choose how to obtain EASM capabilities best?

This report reviews the respective pros and cons of this decision. Download this report to receive guidance intended to serve as a starting point for making the best security decision for each unique organization.
