ASM - Attack Surface Monitoring

Attack Surface Monitoring (ASM) is the continuous discovery, analysis, remediation and monitoring of the cybersecurity vulnerabilities and potential attack vectors that make up an organization’s attack surface.

Key Points of Attack Surface Monitoring

Risk Assessment
1. Identifies and prioritizes vulnerabilities based on severity, exploitability, and potential impact to the organization.

2. Analyzes attacker behavior and techniques to predict future attacks and prioritize mitigation efforts.
Threat Detection
1. Utilizes various techniques like web crawling, vulnerability scanning, and threat intelligence feeds to detect malicious activities and potential attacks.

2. Monitors for reconnaissance activities, unauthorized access attempts, and data exfiltration attempts.
Response And Remediation
1. Provides actionable insights for security teams to prioritize and remediate vulnerabilities promptly.

2. Integrates with other security tools and processes for coordinated incident response and vulnerability patching.
Continuous Monitoring
1. Maintains a continuous feedback loop to update the attack surface monitoring system with new information and adapt to evolving threats.

2. Provides ongoing visibility into the attack landscape to ensure proactive threat detection and prevention.
