New Report Details Five Ways Hackers are Exploiting Organizations Outside the Firewall
SAN FRANCISCO – June 11th, 2020 – RiskIQ, the global leader in attack surface management, today released a new report analyzing the company’s internet-wide telemetry and massive internet data collection to reveal the true extent of the modern corporate digital attack surface. The report, ‘Analysis of an Attack Surface: Five Ways Hackers are Targeting Organizations,’ is a data-driven exploration of five areas of their digital presence where organizations lack visibility and the pathways hackers are exploiting these blind spots.
The research comes from RiskIQ’s unique collection technology, which extracts terabytes of internet data to map the billions of relationships between internet-exposed infrastructure worldwide to assess digital risk. The company’s systems make daily scans of hundreds of unique ports and service banners across the entire IPv4 space and execute billions of HTTP requests to take in passive DNS data and extract web components such as SSL certificates, tracking code, and cookies.
“Today, organizations are responsible for defending not only their internal network but also their digital presence across the internet and the cloud,” said Lou Manousos, RiskIQ CEO. “Bringing the massive scope of an organization’s attack surface into focus helps frame the challenges of extending cybersecurity outside the corporate firewall, especially as staff forced to work from home in response to COVID-19 push that boundary farther out.”
When brands understand what they look like from the outside-in, they can begin developing an attack surface management program that allows them to discover everything associated with their organization on the internet—both legitimate and malicious—and investigate the threats targeting them.
