Continuous Attack Surface Management

CASM protects your organisation’s network through continuous monitoring of your attack surface, immediately notifying in cases of potential vulnerabilities. This real-time information allows you to mitigate any vulnerabilities before cyber attackers can exploit them.

    Why is CASM Important:

    CASM builds on the valuable work done by Attack Surface Mapping. ASM works to reveal previously unknown vulnerabilities and guide remediation efforts; however, it only offers a single point-in-time assessment. This means it is limited when it comes to ensuring long-term success as it does not account for the dynamic nature of the attack surface.

    With organisations continually modifying and adding new infrastructure, it can be hard for security teams to be constantly aware of potential risks – especially ones that arise from the new changes.

    CASM provides comprehensive and, importantly, ongoing visibility into your attack surface. It identifies and priorities critical vulnerabilities so that your organisation can combat them before cyber attackers have the opportunity to exploit them. 

    At Rosca Technologies, we go beyond generic Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) scores to focus specifically on issues that attackers can realistically leverage, thereby enabling effective remediation. Through this regular and proactive threat-hunting approach, we can stop threats at their source, mitigating any risks before they escalate into active cyber attacks.

    What are the Key Features of CASM?

    CASM offers unique features which enable your organisation to gain full visibility and control over the network. These include: 

    ROSCA Icon

    – Immediate notifications – we send immediate updates when a threat is identified that could affect your business

    – Progressive reporting – reports that demonstrate how your security posture is improving over time

    – In-depth and clear analysis – data that is contextualised and easy-to-understand along with expert analysis integrated with your security team.

    Benefits of Continuous Monitoring and Assessment

    In a landscape as dynamic as cybersecurity, continuous monitoring is highly important. Not only does it allow for early threat detection, more effective risk management and quicker incident response but also helps keep up with compliance and regulatory requirements including GDPR, HIPAA, PCI DSS and NIST 800-53.

    How Continuous Attack Surface Management Works

    There are various phases to CASM:

    Discovery and Reconnaissance

    We perform a thorough discovery process to catalogue all internet-facing assets, using both manual and automated methods to uncover components that standard automated tools might miss. After establishing a baseline, we use continuous monitoring to maintain a comprehensive understanding of the attack surface.

    Identification of Threats

    Through continuous vulnerability scanning and proactive threat intelligence monitoring, we flag areas of concern, potential vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. We meticulously assess the exploitation risks of each vulnerability found to offer a comprehensive picture of our client’s unique threat profile.

    Threat Hunting

    Here we validate the capacity for emerging vulnerabilities and weaknesses to be exploited by an external party and the potential impact this could have.

    Dynamic Reporting

    Our continuous, dynamic reporting, highlights any critical or urgent issues and tracks past, present and future threats. We offer a monthly summary report which includes notable hunts conducted, threat intelligence and key discoveries.


    What is Continuous Attack Surface Management (CASM)?

    CASM is a proactive approach to cybersecurity that continuously monitors, identifies and assesses an organisation’s internet-facing assets and identifies vulnerabilities to prevent cyber attacks.

    How does CASM differ from traditional vulnerability management?

    Unlike traditional vulnerability management, CASM offers continuous monitoring and real-time updates, rather than across periodic assessments, to ensure that new and evolving threats are addressed as soon as possible.

    What types of vulnerabilities can CASM detect?

    CASM can detect various vulnerabilities and security weaknesses in internet-facing assets including misconfigurations, outdated software and exposed services.

    How does CASM integrate with our existing security tools and processes?

    CASM is designed to integrate seamlessly with your existing security infrastructure, offering data and insights that will help to enhance your overall security posture and guide remediation efforts.

    Can CASM detect hidden assets?

    Yes, CASM uses both manual and automated methods to discover and list all internet-facing assets, including those that may be partially hidden or missed by standard automated tools.

    What is the process for setting up CASM in my organisation?

    To set up CASM, there will always be an initial discovery process to enumerate all internet-facing assets, followed by setting up continuous monitoring and integrating with your existing security systems.

    What are the challenges of not having CASM in place?

    Not having CASM can lead to blind spots in your security posture making your organisation increasingly susceptible to cyber attacks.

    Is CASM suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)?

    Yes, due to CASM’s scalability, it can be tailored to suit the needs and resources of companies of all sizes, offering crucial protection and ongoing monitoring.
