5 Key Considerations before investing in an External Attack Surface Management solution


It’s no secret: your external attack surface is expanding. Digital transformation, remote work, cloud migration and increased reliance on third party vendors have drastically inflated your digital footprint – resulting in an explosion of unknown internet facing assets. Their risky exposure, if gone unchecked, can be a recipe for a damaging breach.

It is important to stay ahead of adversaries, and stop them from exploiting these assets. External Attack Surface Management (EASM) is a must-have tool in your arsenal to fight back, but in these tough economic times, many enterprises are looking to consolidate, do more with less, and are directing their security teams to prioritize and focus on what matters most. With this in mind, should you invest in a new EASM point product?
