Top 3 Benefits & Uses of Attack Surface Management Solutions According to Gartner:

  1. “Improving asset visibility enables organizations to avoid blind spots and unmanaged technology (such as “shadow IT”), thus improving their security posture and enabling more comprehensive risk management.”
  2. “Understanding potential attack paths toward assets helps organizations prioritize security control deployment and configuration. This, in turn, helps reduce unnecessary exposure to the internet and the public domain, which could be exploited.”
  3. “Quicker audit compliance reporting is enabled by more accurate, current, and comprehensive asset and security control reports.”

Key Recommendations Include:

“Perform an enterprise attack surface gap analysis to detect potential blind spots in IT and security practices and technology. This is a foundation for improving any security program, but especially when security and risk management leaders have to protect environments of growing complexity.”
