Bitsight also identified as a Product Leader, Innovation Leader and Market Leader

BOSTON – September 27, 2023 – Bitsight, a leader in managing and monitoring cyber risk, today announced it has been positioned by KuppingerCole Analysts AG as an Overall Leader in the 2023 Leadership Compass for Attack Surface Management report. The report—which provides an overview and comparison of relevant vendors in defined segments—also identified Bitsight as a leader in several other categories, including Product Leader, Innovation Leader and Market Leader.

Organizations’ attack surfaces are expanding rapidly with the adoption of cloud and IoT technologies, the move to remote or hybrid workforce, and a growing supply chain of digital vendors. As a result, External Attack Surface Management (EASM) has emerged as a critical capability for organizations to maintain visibility into their expanding digital footprint, find and prioritize areas of exposure, and thereby reduce cyber risk. The report recognizes how Bitsight’s robust EASM capabilities empower security leaders to measure, mitigate and reduce exposure across their own infrastructure and their supply chain–proactively and at scale.

“We are honored to be recognized across so many categories in the Leadership Compass for Attack Surface Management. Our aim is to provide our customers with unparalleled visibility into their extended attack surface, which includes their own assets, as well as their supply chain,” said Greg Keshian, Bitsight SVP and GM. “Digital transformation initiatives have created ever-expanding attack surfaces, and blurred boundaries between companies and their supply chains. This extended attack surface is an attractive target for attackers, and needs to be continuously monitored and managed. Bitsight’s capabilities for asset discovery, asset mapping and vulnerability detection combined with a prioritization framework for addressing exposure issues allows our customers to maintain visibility into their attack surface and take action in the most impactful areas. Proactivity in this area allows them to reduce their overall cyber risk.”

KuppingerCole’s report analysts Osman Celik and John Tolbert wrote, “The combination of asset management, ASM, and third-party risk management make Bitsight an attractive offering for organizations looking for consolidated solutions in the market.”.
