Content Discovery: Understanding Your Web Attack Surface

Attack Surface Management (ASM) tools find quite a lot of vulnerabilities on the Web. This really isn’t surprising, given that HTTP/S is by far the most common and broadest of all the services comprising the Internet. In fact, Web-based issues represent the majority of the findings about which our Managed Service Providers (MSPs) inform our […]

Cyber Cartography: Mapping a Target

As Phil Venables has said, “at some level, cyber defense is a battle over whether the attacker or defender has better visibility of the target. Action is key, yes, but without good ‘cyber cartography’ it can be hard to act in the right way.” An attacker’s first step is enumeration, or identifying what looks hackable. […]

ASM: The Best Defense is a Good Offense

About 10 years ago, security was relatively simple because everything occurred on premises. Change releases were tightly controlled by a change ticket and review process. In contrast, current networks consist of auto-scaling containers that run in Kubernetes clusters and even serverless clusters like AWS Lambda. We have transitioned from constrained environments that humans closely scrutinized […]
