Attack Surface Management Buyer’s Guide


In 2020, an estimated 73% of cybersecurity incidents involved external cloud assets, according to the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report. The disappearance of network perimeters, rise of shadow IT, and exposure from small cloud misconfigurations have fundamentally changed how data breaches occur in practice and shifted priorities for organizations. 

The Attack Surface Management Buyer’s Guide demonstrates how your organization can leverage ASM to discover Internet assets (e.g., hosts, services, websites, storage buckets) across all networks and cloud providers, provide a comprehensive inventory, reduce your compliance workload, and manage risk during mergers and acquisitions.
