FireCompass In Gartner Hype Cycle: External Attack Surface Management

EASM Gartner Firecompass

In The Endpoint Security Hype Cycle, Gartner tracks the innovations that aid security leaders in protecting their enterprises from attacks and breaches. The report talks about the adoption of new use cases and technologies such as Attack Surface Management (ASM), BAS, Exposure Management (EM) …etc. Gartner recognizes FireCompass as a leader in the EASM (External Attack Surface Management) category under endpoint security.

As Gartner says, “Visibility is key, end users must have an awareness of where risks are, even if the organization has no way to reduce them.” Security leaders responsible for managing organizational risks have traditionally looked at vulnerability scanning and security controls, helping to identify the level of exposure that their infrastructure is subject to. Security professionals struggle to prioritize risks and what should be actioned first, thereby having alert fatigue and leaving gaps where they feel they have less control.
