Attack Surface Management

Gain complete visibility and take control over your organisation’s attack surface using human-driven attack surface management.

    What is Attack Surface Management?

    An ‘attack surface’ refers to all potential points or paths that attackers could exploit to gain unauthorised access to your organisation’s network, system or applications. This encompasses user accounts, different software, hardware, network infrastructure and external connections. 

    Crucially, the attack surface comprises both known and unknown vulnerabilities or risks within your network, such as misconfigurations, shadow IT, unpatched software, weak security controls and poor coding practices.

    ASM allows for the identification of both existing and previously unknown vulnerabilities, enabling data-driven decisions and prioritised security actions as your network grows and evolves.

    Why is Attack Surface Management Important?

    Organisations may already be aware of some of their current attack surface thanks to exercises such as penetration testing, vulnerability management assessments or threat intelligence platforms. However, ASM goes one step further. 

    ASM offers an unparalleled level of visibility, allowing you to see a comprehensive overview of your entire network and identify things that may have previously been missed by these other tests.

    What Can Attack Surface Management Offer Your Organisation?

    With companies becoming increasingly digitally reliant, their potential attack surface has also grown exponentially. Rosca Technology’s ASM allows you to prioritise and effectively address your organisation’s most crucial security concerns. 

    By adopting the comprehensive perspective that an attacker would have, we can pinpoint the most critical undetected threats across your attack surface and provide actionable insights so that you can take remediation action and allocate defensive resources where they’re most needed.

    Choose between our point-in-time Attack Surface Mapping (ASM) engagement or our Continuous Attack Surface Management (CASM) model.

    Gain a comprehensive overview of your organisation’s entire attack surface.

    Scale Attack Surface Management over time to suit the evolution of your business.

    Go beyond simple severity scores to evaluate vulnerabilities by their exploitation potential and identify previously undiscovered or accepted risks.

    Continuously monitor your systems for proactive threat detection.

    Integrate Rosca Technology’s wider security capability with your organisation’s existing security tools and systems.

    How Does MDR Work?

    The various benefits of ASM include:

    Discovery of Key Vulnerabilities – ASM can help reveal hidden weaknesses, unpatched systems and misconfigurations, often missed by typical scans. By identifying all potential exploitation points for attack, you can improve your defence against attackers.

    Faster Incident Response – Thanks to comprehensive mapping across the extended attack surface, ASM allows for rapid identification of affected areas, leading to immediate remediative action.

    More Streamlined Remediation – Our experienced security providers will help you speed up how fast you’re able to fix vulnerabilities and help you improve remediation efforts.

    Minimisation of Long-term Risks – Through ASM, your security teams can focus their efforts on precise remediation and mitigation, offering the highest level of protection for your digital assets in the long run.

    Adherence to Compliance and Regulation – ASM allows you to excel when it comes to compliance and regulatory obligations.

    Reduction of False Alarms – Unlike automated scanning tools, which can produce many false alarms, we filter out false positives to prioritise the most critical vulnerabilities and allow your teams to use their resources wisely.


    How does Attack Surface Management help in reducing risk?

    ASM reduces the overall risk exposure by identifying and prioritising vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the organisation’s attack surface so that they can proactively address security risks before they can be exploited by attackers.

    What tools and technologies are used in Attack Surface Management?

    ASM uses a range of tools and technologies such as threat intelligence platforms, vulnerability scanners, network mapping tools, security information and event management (SIEM) systems and penetration testing tools.

    Is Attack Surface Management suitable for organisations of all sizes?

    Yes, ASM can benefit organisations, of any size and any sector, that rely on digital assets. 

    How often should Attack Surface Management be performed?

    Regular ASM is recommended to allow for the ever-changing nature of cybersecurity and ensure continuous monitoring; however, the regularity of ASM exercises will depend on many factors such as the industry regulations, changes in the IT environment and the organisation’s risk profile.

    How can I get started with Attack Surface Management in my organisation?

    Organisations can get started with ASM by conducting risk assessments, defining goals and objectives, selecting appropriate tools and technologies, and working with experienced cybersecurity professionals to undergo thorough tests and establish processes for continuous monitoring and improvement.
