IONIX Recognized on the 2021 Gartner® Emerging Technology Vendors List for External Attack Surface Management
IONIX recognized for its innovative external asset management solution
KIRKLAND, Wash. and TEL AVIV, Israel, March 22, 2021 – IONIX, a cybersecurity pioneer in external attack surface management (EASM), today announced that Gartner has named the company to its 2021 Emerging Technologies Vendors list in the external attack surface management (EASM) security category. This annual list recognizes rising technology vendors that are spearheading the future success of cyber innovation.
According to Gartner1, “EASM should be part of a broader vulnerability and threat management effort aimed at discovering and managing internal- and external-facing assets and their potential vulnerabilities.” IONIX’s EASM solution helps organizations mitigate against advanced threats by continuously monitoring, discovering, and assessing the threat vectors present throughout online ecosystems that exist outside the traditional security perimeter.
“We are honored to be recognized by Gartner as an emerging technology vendor in this space,” said IONIX co-founder and CEO Nethanel Gelernter. “Traditional third-party risk management solutions have focused exclusively on the vendors and the IT infrastructures that are directly connected to the enterprise. But this approach only represents the tip of the iceberg as third-party vendors have also adopted a distributed IT infrastructure of their own and built their applications and services using their own vendors and third-parties. IONIX helps companies to identify the vulnerabilities within these relationships and enables security teams to mitigate potential breaches and exploits that would impact their organization.”
