Proactive Attack Surface Risk Management (ASRM) Grounded in Zero Trust Principles
Trend Vision One empowers organizations to build resilient cyber programs and proactively manage risk, thwarting potential events and breaches with cutting-edge attack surface risk management. Leveraging continuous attack surface discovery and real-time risk assessment, businesses can swiftly identify and remediate critical risk, including vulnerabilities and exposures, based on likelihood and impact of attack.
The core components of Trend Vision One™ – Attack Surface Risk Management (ASRM) include:
- Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM): ASRM maximizes existing investments and security infrastructure by leveraging data sources already deployed in the environment to provide deep visibility and insight into an organization’s cyber asset landscape, ensuring proactive monitoring, risk assessment, and vulnerability management to prioritize and safeguard critical assets.
- External Attack Surface Management (EASM): Risk management cannot be effective in silos. EASM is integrated into the broader ASRM solution to enable defenders to gain a comprehensive outside-in view of the digital estate to identify potential threats and proactively mitigate risk originating from outside the network perimeter.
- Cyber Risk Quantification (CRQ): Security leaders can confidently communicate cyber risks, security posture, and resilience planning to the board, executive management, and compliance teams with proprietary and transparent cyber risk quantification reporting. Real-time, contextualized risk data ingests high-fidelity attack data, vulnerability and exposure insights, and security configuration and control status to quantify and benchmark performance, improve situational awareness, and prioritize critical actions.
With continuous internal and internet-facing asset discovery, real-time visibility, and assessment Trend Vision One accelerates the journey towards “never trust, always verify” zero trust architectures — a highly desired but challenging-to-implement security framework.
For the first time, organizations can now manage granular security controls, policy enforcement and policy decision points from a single platform to monitor, manage, and automatically execute dynamic data-driven security controls based on ASRM insights and integrated attack path management to reduce complexity and orchestrate least privilege access with little manual effort.
With a clear path toward operationalizing zero trust, organizations can more effectively minimize their attack surface, slow attackers down, and protect against malicious and non-malicious insider threats, ensuring compliance and data protection.
