Encore recognised in the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Cyber Risk Management, 2023

Cybersecurity company acknowledged in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Cyber Risk Management, 2023 reporting the CAASM category .

Maidenhead, UK 20 September 2023: Encore, the leading Attack Surface Management [ASM] solution provider, has been recognised by Gartner, the research and advisory firm, in its Hype Cycle for Cyber Risk Management, 2023 report.

Encore was mentioned as a Sample Vendor in the Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) market. The report emphasises “CAASM aggregates asset visibility from other products that collect a subset of assets, such as endpoints, servers and devices. By consolidating internal and external cyber assets, users can query to find coverage gaps and misconfigurations for security tools such as vulnerability assessment and endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools. CAASM provides mostly passive data collection via API integrations, replacing time-consuming manual processes to collect and reconcile asset information.”.

“Cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM) is focused on enabling security teams to overcome asset visibility and exposure challenges. It enables organizations 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.”

The attack surface of an organisation represents all the points where unauthorised access can be potentially gained. As the digital landscape evolves, these entry points multiply. With the proliferation of IoT devices, cloud services, and mobile technologies, maintaining visibility into an expanding and dynamic attack surface is crucial. ASM offers a systematic approach to identify, catalog, and monitor these internal and external digital exposures, ensuring that vulnerabilities are promptly addressed. It is a proactive measure that reduces the opportunities for exploitation and also informs and refines an organisation's overall risk strategy.

We believe inclusion in the Gartner report serves as another testament to Encore’s continued innovation and safety-first approach. The company supports organisations worldwide in gaining next-level visibility of real-time threat landscapes, helping them move beyond inadequate cybersecurity compliance and toward true cyber safety.

Encore's CEO, Brendan Kotze, states: “To us, acknowledgement in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Cyber Risk Management is a testament to the hard work and ingenuity of our team, and once again serves to affirm our position as leaders within cybersecurity. The Gartner Hype Cycles provides fundamental groundwork that informs the way businesses deliberate technological advancement across all touchpoints. Encore is dedicated to helping businesses tackle the increasingly complex cybersecurity environment, enabling them to harness technology as a driving force in achieving a cyber-safe business environment."

"Gartner Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities. Gartner Hype Cycle methodology gives you a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of your specific business goals".* The Hype Cycle for Cyber Risk Management, 2023 analysed areas like generative cybersecurity AI, FinDRA, and Continuous Compliance Automation in addition to CAASM. All we recognised as part of the ‘Innovation Trigger’ in the Hype Cycle within the report.
