Business Challenge

Challenge 1: Identifying entire exposed digital assets

The Customer’s IT Security Team wanted to identify their entire exposed digital infrastructure. 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: Lack of resources to research the volume of Security Risk findings

The customer needed a tool which can identify all of their exposed IT attack surface and the related security risks involved.  Customer needed a single dashboard to manage their internet exposed assets.


Attack Surface Discovery

  • Domains, Subdomains, IPs and Applications Enumeration
  • Pre-production systems, UAT Systems, Online DataBases Identification and Reporting


Attack Surface Monitoring

  • Vulnerabilities Monitoring (via Passive Scanning)
  • Malicious Infrastructure Monitoring (including from Threat Intel Sources)
  • Open Cloud Buckets(S3) Identification and Monitoring
  • Code Leaks Identification and Monitoring
  • Phishing or Look-alike Domains Monitoring


Attack Surface Reduction

Exposed domains have provided a treasure trove of domains that needed to be shut-down as they were no longer being used. FireCompass RECON tool has exceeded the customer’s expectations in identifying numerous domains and subdomains that were shown as public, but should have been private.


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. FireCompass tool helped them to identify relationships with 3rd party hosting companies that were unknown to the customer’s domain management team. Firecompass also helped to identify key security risk items, as well as domains and subdomains that are legitimate but unknown to the IT team and needed to be added to their inventory.


Discovery and Mitigation of Unknown Shadow IT Risks 

FireCompass helped the Customer track the exposed digital assets including:

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


Near Real-time Monitoring of Digital Risks 

FireCompass helped them to monitor their attack surface on a weekly basis, reducing the chances of missing new risks, and notified the critical risks like code leaks in Github, online systems with vulnerabilities, leaked credentials and so on.

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