Stratascale Attack Surface Validation
Continuous Security Control Validation for Comprehensive Attack Surface Validation
The world’s top enterprises are equipped with cybersecurity tools and teams of subject matter experts who are focused on one mission—to stay ahead of the attack vectors used by malicious cyber intruders. So why are these companies still experiencing data breaches? Attackers are uncovering new and unconventional ways to penetrate your cyber defenses. Businesses have to rapidly embrace next-generation digital transformation as a competitive advantage that allows them to achieve their business objectives and repeatedly implement new cybersecurity best practices.
Understanding Your Attack Surface
Your attack surface is made up of three types of assets—known, unknown, and malicious.
Your security and IT teams are aware of, govern, and manage known assets, such as your corporate website, servers, and the applications running on them.
Unknown assets, also referred to as shadow IT or orphaned IT, include temporary Infrastructure, ephemeral web application servers, or forgotten websites that weren’t properly decommissioned. These assets exist outside the governance of your security and IT teams.
Malicious assets, such as malware or rogue websites, are infrastructure and applications spun up by threat actors to exploit vulnerabilities and access or manipulate your environment. Thousands of these malicious assets are created every day to probe for entry points to your environment and are wholly outside the governance of tools like firewalls and endpoint protection.
Challenges to Attack Surface Management
There are several factors that make it challenging to manage your attack surface.
- Lacking a complete picture of existing assets
- Technology mistakes
- Human error
- Shadow IT
To truly protect your business, you need a comprehensive understanding of your attack surface so your security and IT teams can implement an effective strategy to combat the threats you’re up against.
Shadow IT & Attack Surface Analysis
We provide complete attack surface analysis to identify all IP addresses, applications, exposed databases/cloud buckets, code and credential leaks, vulnerabilities, exposed test/preproduction systems, etc.
Security Control Effectiveness Testing
To determine the effectiveness of your security controls, mobile threat detection (MTD), managed threat response (MTR), and more, we conduct a combination of attacks, such as phishing, dynamic application security testing (DAST), denial of service, etc.
Ransomware + Nation State Attack Emulation
Your ransomware attack surface could be in jeopardy. We scan all of your assets vulnerable to Internet exposure for risks.
Third-Party & Supply Chain Attack Simulation
We manage third-party risks to assess the security posture of your vendors and prevent data breaches.
Stratascale Manages the Attack Surface with Continuous Threat Validation
Attackers may have a better understanding of your attack surface than you do because they have visibility into every public-facing asset you own, as well as everything connected to your organization, that is directly exposed on the Internet. You need to know your attack surface even better than they do. Stratascale’s Attack Surface Validation solution is designed to provide continuous attack surface monitoring by taking a methodical approach to define your attack surface so you can stay ahead of attackers and threats, no matter how much or how frequently they evolve.
Attack surface management may seem like a chore, but Stratascale simplifies the process and provides you with real-time, valuable data at every stage of the process. Accurately categorizing and prioritizing your assets according to their individual risk level allows you to determine what needs to be addressed immediately and what can wait. With Atack Surface Validation, you will receive:
We leverage threat models to create a working hypothesis.
We use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms to uncover all your digital assets and provide a comprehensive view of your current attack surface.
We identify weaknesses in your attack surface and build a risk profile composed of potential attack vectors.
We run passive and active multi-stage attack exploits to validate the potential attack vectors.
We continuously monitor your attack surface for risk by shifting our focus to the next attack vector.
