Our passive assessment capability continues to astound us with the things we find. I haven’t seen this many obvious hits since the early days of vulnerability scanning…
It seems that many organizations are missing issues that lie outside of their perimeter. Hosted sites, cloud-based systems and rogue network segments abound. Brand-focused assessments and passive testing of the security posture of partners, providers and external resources have proven to our clients to be a tipping point moment. It has become clear to them and us that a significant portion of the threats and attack surface have moved into wider distribution outside the network perimeter of yesterday.
Client have been using this capability to test and audit their own risks, but also their vendors, partners and cloud “en masse”.
We are looking for 3-5 key organizations to put together a summit and think tank group to develop standards and best practices together for how to best use passive assessments and targeted threat intelligence on an enterprise level. If your organization would like to discuss passive assessment and potentially engaging in the best practices development summit, please reach out to us on Twitter (@microsolved) or contact your account executive/project manager to arrange for a quick call. Thanks and we look forward to bringing these game changing new tools to organizations around the world shortly!
