Overview

Threat intelligence services work on the objective that defence controls must be improved to minimise the ever expanding attack surface. In order to deal with threats, organisations must be aware of their attack surface. Entire threat intelligence domain works on the principle of “What you don’t know can hurt you”. Here’s how Gartner defines threat intelligence:

  • Threat intelligence (TI) is evidence-based knowledge — including context, mechanisms, indicators, implications and actionable advice — about an existing or emerging menace or hazard to IT or information assets.

The attack surface of your organisation is composed of multiple connects of information related to people, processes and/or technology in use. These attack vectors can be utilised as a stepping stone to launch cyberattacks or gain unauthorised access into your organisation.

This exercise is composed of information analysis based on advanced reconnaissance and analysis work. Our methodology involves utilising multiple information channels and attack surface analysis tools to identify and analyse specific information.

This assessment outcome helps organisations to assess their attack surface proactively, providing an opportunity to act on potential risks affecting the business over the internet.

Our expertise adds this value to customer security teams without their big spend on resources such as skill-sets, tools. Attack surface intelligence is an ongoing activity for many organisations to keep monitoring online presence and see what adversaries see, to analyse and contain the risk before it’s exploited.

Benefits of Attack Surface Analysis

The nature of cybersecurity threats is one of constant evolution; growing in sophistication and changing in order to exploit new vulnerabilities and evade detection. This is why you need to perform regular security assessments to protect your network.
Our managed security services offer you a security team working for you at a fraction of cost should this be an in-house team. This would also incur expense on acquiring technology stack.
There is no magic bullet or one size fits all cybersecurity solution that will protect your network. In order to make sure you’re protected, you need continuous security assessments and up to date solutions that keep your organisation ahead of the curve.
Cybersecurity is only effective when it is proactive. By identifying weaknesses and vulnerabilities before they are exploited, you ensure the integrity of your network. Frequent security assessments also create a more efficient system, helping to prevent data loss and minimise any downtime that would affect your business and your customers.
