Business Challenge

Challenge 1: Enumerating Digital Attack Surface & Asset Inventory Creation

The CTO’s initial goal was to centralize control of the company’s digital assets and understand the attack surface. However, these assets existed in siloed environments, and various departmental groups controlled the assets. Gathering an accurate, complete inventory (Domains, Sub-domains, IPs, mobile apps, landing pages, portals, forms and so on) would be a daunting task, given the number of unknown digital assets created in a decentralized manner and the security/IT group’s lack of visibility.

Challenge 2: Continuous Monitoring of Digital Cyber Risks

The CTO’s other challenge was to analyse their current risk posture and monitor for future breach risks like exposed UATs, Preprod Environments, Vulnerabilities, Subdomain Takeover Risks, Phishing Domains, Malicious Infrastructure, employees’ personally identifiable information (PII) etc. on continuous basis.


Attack Surface Discovery:

  • Domains/Subdomains/IPs/Applications Enumeration
  • Preprod, UAT Systems, Online DBs Identification and Reporting

Attack Surface Monitoring

  • Vulnerabilities (Through Passive Scanning) Monitoring
  • Malicious Infrastructure Monitoring
  • Open S3 Buckets Identification and Monitoring
  • Code Leaks Identification and Monitoring
  • Phishing Domains Monitoring

Red Teaming

  • Monthly automated Red Teaming
  • Active vulnerability assessment
  • Infrastructure Security Assessment
  • Penetration Testing


30% Decrease In Attack Surface:

With the help of FireCompass solution, the company has created an inventory of their digital assets, and removed assets which were not in use or not required.

Continuously Updated Asset Inventory: 

FireCompass internet wide continuous monitoring tool has helped the customer to have an up to date inventory of their digital internet facing assets which were missing earlier.

Discovery & Mitigation of Unknown Shadow IT Risks:

FireCompass helped the customer to track the exposed digital assets including:

  • Exposed documents & files
  • Compromised / malicious infrastructure
  • Exposed pre-prod servers, database servers, RDP Servers
  • Exposed backend APIs


Near Real-time Monitoring Of Digital Risks:

FireCompass helped them to monitor their attack surface on a daily basis, reducing chances of missing out new risks, and notified about some of the critical risks like online cameras with default passwords, online systems with vulnerabilities, leaked credentials, etc.

"To our surprise, the tool has exceeded our expectations in identifying numerous domains and subdomains that are shown as public, but should be private ..."
