Attack Surface Management is rapidly emerging.

Find out everything you need to know about CAASM and EASM.

More than ever, security teams need a clear view of their security posture to focus their efforts on limiting the chances of a successful attack. The challenge has been that trying to accurately identify all assets in their environment, along with the additional context needed to assess risk, has required time consuming manual processes that already stretched teams can ill afford.

With Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management [CAASM], teams gain complete visibility over their organisation’s cyber assets, coverage gaps and misconfigured tools in one interface. This eliminates the manual work required to achieve this level of visibility, while improving accuracy, enabling teams to rapidly identify the most effective ways to improve their defences.

It doesn’t stop at internal visibility. As organisations have increasing adopted the cloud and remote working, it’s never been harder to identify all external-facing assets and associated vulnerabilities. External Attack Surface Management (EASM) shows your environment from the perspective of an attacker, allowing you to uncover and address previously unknown risks before they can be exploited.

Attack Surface Management (ASM) is at its most effective when utilising both CAASM and EASM. By incorporating both, Encore provides unparalleled insight by combining the data from both an internal and external perspective. Teams are empowered not only with full visibility, but the ability to prioritise their remediation efforts where they can have the greatest impact.

How Gartner defines CAASM & EASM

Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management [CAASM]

An emerging technology area focused on enabling security teams to overcome asset visibility and exposure challenges. It enables organisations to see all assets (internal and external), primarily through API integrations with existing tools, query consolidated data, identify the scope of vulnerabilities and gaps in security controls, and remediate issues.

External Attack Surface Management [EASM]

The processes, technology and managed services deployed to discover internet-facing enterprise assets and systems and associated vulnerabilities. Examples include exposed servers, credentials, public cloud service misconfigurations, deep dark web disclosures and third-party partner software code vulnerabilities that could be exploited by adversaries.

Encore has been cited as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2022.
