As organizations digitally transform due to remote workforce growth and migration to cloud environments, the size of their possible attack surfaces has also drastically increased. Gartner predicts that enterprise attack surfaces are expanding with associated risks from the use of emerging cyber-physical systems, such as cloud-based applications, open-source code, social media, and more.
The specific needs and insights for different assets remain fragmented and siloed from one another. Security analysts have an overwhelming number of vectors to manually manage, in addition to the heightened complexity of internal and external cyber threats for each attack surface. The lack of asset visibility, security coverage gaps, and asset vulnerabilities pose a cybersecurity problem for companies.
