Encore named a sample vendor for Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) by Gartner



Maidenhead, UK. 22nd July 2022: Encore, a leader in Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) has been listed as a sample vendor for CAASM in Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2022 report.


Gartner defines CAASM as being “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.”


Encore’s CAASM solution integrates a business’s entire security stack into one simple interface, allowing them to focus on what really matters - improving their security posture. With greater visibility over all cyber assets, organisations can speed up the decision-making process with real-time information.


Brendan Kotze, Chief Executive Officer at Encore, commented: “Being named in the Gartner Hype Cycle report is an extraordinary milestone for Encore, and is fair recognition for the work our incredible team has carried out to help define and strengthen CAASM’s place in the market and help organisations of all sizes do more with their existing security tooling investments.


“This evolving sector will be paramount in helping organisations achieve complete visibility over all cyber assets, helping identify gaps in security faster and streamlining internal processes to one absolute goal – delivering cyber safety.”


Major themes highlighted within the Gartner report include:

  • Cybersecurity Mesh Architecture

  • Exposure Management

  • Automated Penetration test and Red Teaming

  • External Attack Surface Management

  • Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR)
