When it comes to IT infrastructure, it’s fair to say the perimeter has left the premises. Whether it’s discovering short-lived assets (e.g., containers), assessing cloud environments or maintaining web application security, today’s attack surface presents a growing challenge to CISOs looking to understand and reduce their cyber risk. To combat this issue, a discipline called Cyber Exposure is emerging to help organizations manage and measure this risk. This ebook provides insights on how CISOs are addressing the modern attack surface.

Most organizations are in the midst of some form of digital transformation (DX), transforming how they bring products and services to the market—and ultimately deliver value to their customers. But DX initiatives also bring complexity for the network operations team. With business-critical services distributed across multiple clouds, this leads to potential performance issues, especially at branch locations. Given these realities, it is no wonder that software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) technology is rapidly going mainstream. Unfortunately, SD-WAN is an example of the paradox of DX: transformative technology can potentially move the business to the next level, but the expanded attack surface it creates can expose the organization to significant risk. That is why an SD-WAN deployment, like every other DX effort, should be accompanied by a security transformation (SX) that rethinks outdated principles, broadens protection beyond the data center, and integrates the security archit

If your organization is one of the 95% of enterprises that operate in the cloud, you are already grappling with cloud security. And if your organization is one of the 85% of companies that use multiple Infrastructureas-a-Service (IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) clouds, you have additional issues to consider. Compared to the days when organizations managed everything on-premises or only had a handful of cloud deployments, this new multi-cloud world exacerbates the expansion of the attack surface and makes threat containment and accountability more difficult. Further, pressure on security teams to protect everything in the multi-cloud environment is leading to reactive and expensive threat management. If you are a security leader tasked with meeting the challenges of a multi-cloud environment, eventually you’ll find that siloed cloud security strategies fall short of the mark. But don’t wait. Now is the time to consider a holistic security approach that reclaims control from dispa

Challenge Businesses today must reduce the risk of security breaches to protect the valuable data within their organizations. At the same time, IT auditors are increasingly enforcing ever more stringent requirements on the business. The bottom line is that privileged accounts and privileged access are being targeted by hackers as a new attack surface and focused on by auditors who are insisting on greater controls around privileged accounts. Opportunity The right privileged access management solution provides comprehensive protection for your missioncritical servers with powerful, fine-grained controls over operating system-level access and privileged user actions. Capable of enforcing access controls on powerful native Superuser accounts—like the UNIX® and Linux® root and Microsoft® Windows® administrator—this system-level, host-based privileged access management solution controls, monitors and audits privileged user activity, improving security and simplifying audit and compliance.

The frequency of “mega breaches” continues to rise at an alarming rate. In fact, crippling incidents involving tens of millions of customer records, theft of highly valuable intellectual property, and related criminal activity have become commonplace. This report asserts that many such breaches could be prevented by deploying next-generation endpoint protection technology in concert with an aggressive proactive hunting strategy. This potent combination provides the most effective means to reduce attack surfaces and defend against advanced adversaries.

With the rate of cloud spending predicted to outpace overall IT spending six to one over the next few years, organizations are rightly concerned about ensuring that applications in the cloud enjoy the same level of security as apps deployed in data centers. Using the public cloud does alter your attack surface area—and leveraging multiple public and private clouds (aka multi-cloud) does so even more. Some threats get bigger, some get smaller. Some even go away, or at least drift out of your control, while new threats should move front and center in your security thinking.

As much as the Digital Economy and the Internet of Everything (IoE) create opportunities for companies and consumers - over $19 trillion in value to organizations over the next decade - they also create opportunities for hackers and cybercriminals. With an expanded attack surface represented by the IoE, cybercriminals look to cash in on the estimated value of $450 billion to over $1 trillion of the Hacker Economy.

Evident.io has a significant head start in this nascent corner of the cloud security space. Besides addressing a critical portion of the cloud's attack surface that isn't well covered by other vendors yet, Evident.io has built a platform that transcends the niche it currently addresses. The API/SDK consumption capabilities, data analytic and user workflow portions of the company's Evident Security Platform are valuable assets that it can leverage to grow into other areas in the future.
