What Is An External Attack Surface?
While there has been no shortage of headlines regarding cybersecurity events for the past many years, the recent SolarWinds incident highlights the risks inherent in the digital supply chain. Organizations are at risk from many types of cyber attack – but perhaps the most insidious might come through their own connections. This is where external attack surface security represents a new, emerging opportunity for security minded channel partners.
How IONIX Helps Your Customers
Partners have assisted customers with penetration testing, vulnerability assessments and other associated services for many years, probing targets for areas of risk. IONIX’s platform enables partners to identify and address their customer’s risk of attack from within their entire attack surface by providing continuous discovery, assessment and mitigation of vulnerabilities. The platform performs two primary types of discovery – from the enterprise/perimeter out and from the internet in.
Most partners are familiar with solutions that provide risk scoring – IONIX extends a security teams visibility beyond beyond simple risk scoring based on volunteered information and the discovered assets of 1st degree connections.
External attack surface security, as delivered by IONIX, discovers and records the full digital supply chain by iteratively working through the connections of the customer organization. Secondly, the factors that the solution uses to determine the riskiness, or likelihood of being hacked, provide a robust and actionable rank-order of vulnerabilities found within that digital supply chain.
How IONIX Helps Our Partners Succeed
External attack surface security is a natural extension of the security assessment and remediation services our partners offer today. Awareness of digital supply chain risk is rapidly increasing which means your customers are very likely interested in hearing more.
IONIX’s Partners Program helps our partners excel at delivering that awareness to their customers by providing:
