See What Attackers See

Attackers are looking for the path of least resistance in your attack surface so that they can break into your high-value digital assets. To stay ahead, you have to think like an attacker too. That requires ongoing visibility of your attack surface, and there’s only one proven way to establish attack surface visibility, and that is to do what attackers do: perform reconnaissance across your entire IT ecosystem, using an outside-in approach.

With the full view of your attacker-exposed assets, you have a good foundation for evaluating your organizational risk and establishing an effective security program that allows you and your team to focus your resources on eliminating the highest priority risks for your business.
