Attack Surface Management
Ensure your assets are discovered and well protected in front of the Cyber threats
Attack Surface Management | Understanding Attack Surface
Attack Surface Management (ASM) is a crucial aspect of cybersecurity because it helps to identify and address potential vulnerabilities within an organization’s IT infrastructure. This includes the ongoing discovery, inventory, classification, and monitoring of all IT assets, including legacy systems, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and shadow IT.
ASM is a top priority for CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, and security teams, as it helps to reduce the risk of data breaches, exploitation, and privacy non-compliance. By continuously enumerating cloud and IT issues, exposures, and misconfigurations, ASM helps organizations to minimize their risk of data breaches and other security incidents. It can also be beneficial in the context of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) due diligence, as it allows the acquiring company to understand any potential risks and exposures and develop a plan to address security and privacy weaknesses. This allows security and risk teams to allocate resources effectively and prepare for any potential threats.
Cyber Legion is a One stop-shop solution for all security stakeholders to ensure that their businesses are well guarded against security issues and cyber attacks. One Security platform for all your company security threats, risks, vulnerabilities and engagements.
The process of identifying and mapping out all the possible entry points for an attacker to gain unauthorized access to a system or network
The use of data analysis techniques to identify and assess potential vulnerabilities and risks in an organization’s attack surface
The practice of minimizing an organization’s attack surface by eliminating unnecessary or redundant components, systems, or processes that could be exploited by attackers
The continuous monitoring and analysis of an organization’s attack surface to identify and respond to potential threats in real-time
The process of mitigating or eliminating identified vulnerabilities or weaknesses in an organization’s attack surface to reduce the likelihood of successful attacks
The use of graphical representations or visual aids to help understand and communicate an organization’s attack surface, including its potential vulnerabilities and risks
Onboard & Track your Assets
All assets Matter. We gather data from various sources to identify your company’s assets, such as web applications, mobile apps, APIs, IoT devices, and network components. Consider the benefits of ongoing managed services for cybersecurity assessments, risk identification, and severity validation to protect these assets.
Our asset management capabilities give blue teams and leadership a comprehensive understanding of all elements of their security program. By tracking and managing vulnerabilities at the asset level, we provide the visibility necessary to prioritize and protect the most critical data and assets. With Cyber Legion, you can confidently identify and remediate vulnerabilities, ensuring a strong security posture.
Automated external attack surface discovery
Our asset discovery service has the capabilities to identify all internet-facing assets and cloud environments within your organization, including those that may be unknown to you. This process also highlights any associated risks. By providing security teams with a complete and current inventory of domains, subdomains, and IP addresses, our scripts give you full visibility into your attack surface. As the digital perimeter of businesses grows in both size and complexity, automating the asset discovery and inventory process can greatly improve your analysis of the attack surface.
Discovery & Prioritize your assets based on severity Risks
Prioritize & Track each vulnerability based on the Asset criticality. Cyber Legion’s analytics module aggregates findings into visualizations that are powerful yet easy to understand. At a glance, you can see your security posture in real time to make enlightened decisions about where to allocate resources.
We helps you ensure your scarce infosec resources are being applied where needed most. Track average time to remediation based on the severity of risk.
Continue to Discover & Prioritize and Report
Improve your knowledge of the vulnerabilities and potential entry points that exist in your system from external sources. Identify the greatest security risks and take steps to prevent cyber threats from exploiting these weaknesses. By reducing your attack surface, you can safeguard your assets and protect against cybersecurity threats.
Continuous Discover and Prioritize your organisation assets based on severity Risks and business Impact.
In a report, you can include affected assets to provide the specific location of vulnerabilities within your environment. These assets can be manually or automatically created every time you import a scan result. The raw scan data for each asset will also be displayed in relation to the vulnerability.
What is Attack Surface Management?
Attack surface management is the continuous process of discovering, classifying and assessing the security of all of an organization’s assets.

Why Attack Surface Management Matters?
Attack surface management is important because it helps organizations identify, prioritize, and mitigate vulnerabilities and potential entry points that could be exploited by attackers. By reducing the attack surface, organizations can reduce their risk of being compromised and protect their assets, data, and reputation.
84% of business, IT, and security managers that say that cyber-risk is greater than it was two years ago. 68% of organizations that experienced a cyber attack, began from an unknown, unmanaged, or poorly-managed company asset. 75% believe that they will experience this type of cyber attack again.
What is the external attack surface management?
External attack surface management is the process of identifying, analyzing, and mitigating potential vulnerabilities in an organization’s external facing systems, networks, and assets. This includes identifying and securing any external-facing
What is the attack surface of a network?
The attack surface is the number of all possible points, or attack vectors, where an unauthorized user can access a system and extract data. The smaller the attack surface, the easier it is to protect.
What is the difference between attack vector and attack surface?
An attack vector is a method or path that an attacker uses to gain access to a target system or network. It is a means of delivery for an attack.
Attack surface, on the other hand, refers to the total sum of vulnerabilities and points of entry that an attacker can use to gain access to a system or network. It represents the potential risk and exposure to attacks.
