Encore recognised in the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Security Operations, 2023

Cybersecurity vendor acknowledged in the latest Gartner report on Security Operations in 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 Security Operations, 2023 report.

Gartner's Hype Cycle for Security Operations identifies technologies that are transforming the cybersecurity landscape. We believe the inclusion of Encore’s CAASM solution in this report reaffirms its position as a leader in the field of cyber asset management.

The report states, "Cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM) is 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." Attack Surface Management (ASM) is a crucial addition to security operations. The digital landscape is rapidly evolving, with businesses increasingly relying on a myriad of devices, applications, and services. Each of these introduces potential entry points for malicious actors. ASM enables organisations to proactively identify, assess, and secure these entry points, or 'attack vectors.'

By continuously mapping and monitoring the entire attack surface, security operation teams can understand existing vulnerabilities and anticipate and address potential weaknesses introduced by new technological deployments. In essence, ASM acts as the radar for the cybersecurity framework, detecting vulnerabilities before they can be exploited and helping ensure a robust and resilient digital infrastructure.

We believe the 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: “We are thrilled to be recognised in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2023. We feel this acknowledgment validates our dedication to providing cybersecurity solutions that empower organisations to effectively manage their cyber asset attack surfaces. We remain committed to continuous innovation and helping our clients navigate the complex cybersecurity landscape. 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 Security Operations, 2023 analysed areas like Generative Cybersecurity AI, CPS Security and Exposure Management in addition to CAASM. All were recognised as part of the ‘Innovation Trigger’ in the Hype Cycle within the report.

In light of its recognition in the Hype Cycle report, Encore remains steadfast in its dedication to providing world-class cybersecurity solutions imperative to organisations’ safeguarding of digital assets, customers, and reputation.
