Censys Attack Surface Management Platform

ASM creates a clear picture of your actual attack surface, not just what you think you know about. Continual discovery and monitoring of assets means you can quickly remediate risks and exposures for your organization.

Continuous Internet Asset Discovery and Inventory

Censys Attack Surface Management discovers unknown and unmanaged digital assets—including services, hosts, websites, storage buckets, and cloud accounts—across all clouds and networks in real time.

This visibility provides a comprehensive, fresh inventory of all Internet assets that could potentially become a backdoor for threat actors. Security teams can quickly understand asset configuration, ownership, history, and relationship to other organizational assets, as well as identify anomalous assets.

Risk Detection and Remediation

Through algorithmic discovery and automated attribution, Censys provides the most accurate and up-to-date view of your attack surface.

Integrate Censys ASM data into existing vulnerability management, web security, and CSPM tools to continuously discover, monitor, and identify Internet weaknesses and misconfigurations—including expiring certificates, End-of-Life software, and insecure TLS configurations—that traditional tools don’t monitor.

Cloud Security and Governance

Cloud assets change constantly. A single misconfigured asset—like a storage bucket or database—can lead to a catastrophic data breach.

Censys Attack Surface Management instantly uncovers unknown cloud accounts and identifies misconfigured assets across all cloud providers so you can securely migrate them into managed accounts, while traditional cloud solutions analyze cloud accounts in mainstream providers that you already know about.
