Why FireCompass Was Chosen as an IDC Innovator?

FireCompass Scans and indexes the web as a hacker would with an always on method of looking for attack Vectors. It then launches attacks with continuous automated red teaming to repeatedly test customer’s attack surfaces. It wants red teaming to be available to all enterprises consistently, not just large organizations who perform red team exercises several times a year.

“The outside-in view of an organization’s IT assets enables discovery of unknown assets that have been added to the network going beyond what is viewable in vulnerability management,” says Michelle Abraham, research director, Security and Trust at IDC.

FireCompass Attack Surface Management Tool continuously monitors and shares near real time alerts on any changes In organization’s digital footprints. It helps data conscious organizations to discover exposed or risky assets and take proactive steps to mitigate risks. In Attack Surface Management Solution the tool discovers external-facing assets like Domains, Subdomains, IPs, public cloud service misconfigurations, applications, leaked codes, exposed databases, vulnerabilities that can be exploited by attackers. To add, it runs continuously without any additional Software, Hardware or Resources.

“It is the same ever-changing view a threat actor has, which provides information on how it would get in and what damage it could do. Automation of continuous attacks shows a security team how to make their organization less vulnerable, measuring improvement over time.” – continues Michelle Abraham.

At FireCompass, our vision is to empower the IT security teams to fight against hackers, who are relentlessly working to sneak into your networks and exploit any possible vulnerability. This recognition from IDC shows that we are on the right track to achieve many more milestones.

“We are excited to be part of IDC Innovators – 2021. This is testament to the growing importance of Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART) and FireCompass as a creator of this category.”
