Cyber Security Threats And Vulnerabilities

Gaining Visibility Into Cyber Security Threats And Vulnerabilities

As your digital ecosystem expands, managing cyber risk grows more difficult by the day. New enterprise IT trends like cloud services, remote networks, and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) can help to make your organization more agile and productive, but they help to expand your attack surface as well. Since many of these new digital initiatives live outside your network, it’s increasingly challenging to gain visibility into cyber security threats and vulnerabilities within your digital footprint.

BitSight Attack Surface Analytics simplifies the task of managing cyber risk across an increasingly complex attack surface. By providing complete visibility of digital assets and associated risks in the cloud as well as your geographies, subsidiaries, and remote workforce, BitSight lets you better understand and manage risk in an expanding digital ecosystem.

BitSight Attack Surface Analytics

BitSight Attack Surface Analytics provides continuous visibility into your digital ecosystem so you can identify and remediate cyber security threats and vulnerabilities. BitSight lets you discover and segment the endpoints, applications, and devices within your digital footprint. With that information, you can assess your current risk exposure, prioritize high-risk assets, and take action to remediate risk.

BitSight Attack Surface Analytics lets you proactively address cyber security threats and vulnerabilities by:

  • Increasing visibility. BitSight’s centralized dashboard reveals the location of your digital assets broken down by geography, business unit, and cloud provider. It also shows the corresponding cyber risk associated with each endpoint to help speed remediation.
  • Reviewing shadow IT. BitSight lets you discover hidden vulnerabilities, cloud instances, and potentially unprotected shadow IT being used without the knowledge of IT. With this information, you can assess these endpoints for risk and bring them in line with corporate security policies.
  • Identifying your greatest threats and risks. With a view of digital endpoints throughout your ecosystem, you can visualize areas of critical or disproportionate risk and prioritize remediation.
  • Tracking risk in cloud environments. BitSight gives you visibility into the risk profile of your assets stored in the cloud, enabling you to better understand security posture as it relates to cloud providers’ shared security models.

Armed with a clearer view of your digital ecosystem and the cyber security threats and vulnerabilities within it, you can make more informed decisions about where to focus your cybersecurity efforts and investments.

Why Trust BitSight’s analytics?

Founded in 2011, BitSight has become the world’s leading security ratings platform. BitSight Security Ratings offer a proven cyber security assessment tool that delivers a dynamic measurement of an organization’s security performance. Based on objective, independently verified data, BitSight Security Ratings help organizations make faster, more strategic decisions about cybersecurity and third-party risk management.

In addition to security performance management, BitSight transforms how companies manage third-party risk in their vendor ecosystem. BitSight Security Ratings offer a daily assessment of the security posture of third-party vendors, providing a far more comprehensive and accurate assessment of risk than the traditional tools such as a yearly security compliance questionnaire or a cyber security risk assessment checklist. By enabling greater visibility into third-party risk, BitSight helps organizations improve their security posture and manage risk more effectively.

FAQs: What Are Cyber Security Threats And Vulnerabilities?

A cybersecurity threat is an attack that seeks to gain unauthorized access to the IT network of an individual or organization. Cyber threats may be launched to create disruption, cause damage, or to steal data, money, intellectual property, or other sensitive information. Vulnerabilities are gaps or weaknesses in an IT environment that can be exploited by attackers.

To remediate cyber security threats and vulnerabilities, organizations need clear visibility into their attack surface, the critical assets within it, and the threats and risks to those assets. With this visibility, security teams can perform a cyber security vulnerability assessment, prioritize the most critical vulnerabilities, and direct resources to remediate the greatest risks.

Attack surface analytics are a security technology that gives security leaders visibility into the size and composition of an organization’s attack surface as well as the risks and vulnerabilities within it.
