Replace Blind Trust in Cybersecurity with Continuous Threat Exposure Management

You are currently viewing Replace Blind Trust in Cybersecurity with Continuous Threat Exposure Management

Traditional vulnerability management approaches can no more or no longer keep up with today’s dynamically changing business needs or methods and attack surfaces that are expanding across clouds, remote workers, IoT, and mobile users. Ad hoc measures, emergency patches, and also comprehensive asset and vulnerability inventory management programs need to evolve into multi-functional security strategies. This layered security also needs to include prevention controls and also robust detection and response.

Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) programs which consist of automated pen testing and red teaming, when it is combined with External Attack Surface Management (EASM) and enables a strong cybersecurity posture. These management approaches effectively identify and help in managing external-facing digital assets and the security technology and processes that discover vulnerabilities to protect all those assets.

Protection of all digital business assets requires the ability to prepare for threats. This means using a specific cohesive risk reduction strategy on just a regular and repeatable basis. A comprehensive approach must expose and address a broad array of known and unknown threats and identify all types of vulnerable security gaps from misconfigurations, software faults, and even the most minor network changes that can create new vulnerabilities.

By implementing auto pentesting, red teaming and EASM security measures, organizations gain much greater visibility and control to overcome breaches, minimize risks, and also increase security resilience.

Ridge Security’s RidgeBot, is a fully automated pentest robot for risk-based vulnerability management; they act like human attackers using sophisticated exploits. Ridgemont enables organizations to conduct automated pentesting from an attacker’s point of view.

Before any exposure is even put into production, it can find, assess, prioritize, and fix a comprehensive set of directions that attackers would see. The resulting validation easily allows organizations to see what would happen in the event of an attack, how the defences would cope or work, and how well the processes would perform. This validation is achieved through breach and attack simulation and automated penetration testing.

RidgeBot in action:

These are pre-defined templates in which RidgeBot work is to identify a target machine’s OS type, open ports, and active services. They also recognize website domain names, sub-domain names, and many more. These tests do not incur a license fee to run once the RidgeBot is installed.

The “Attack Surface Identification” test is included within other test scenarios, with a list of all open-up ports present and the active services for servers and externally exposed URLs/URIs. This table is located just on the GUI, as well as in the report that can be generated in .csv, .pdf, and other .html formats.

RidgeBot scans, exploits, and validates vulnerabilities and also reports with hard evidence. This enables security and the risk teams to identify and manage their digital assets and also ensure that the technology and processes protecting those assets are reliable and resilient to eliminate all risks and vulnerabilities.
