How enterprises become exposed to hidden risks from subsidiaries and web apps

Presented by

Emma Zaballos, Product Marketing Manager, CyCognito and Jonathan Keÿzer, Sales Engineer, CyCognito

About this talk

As large enterprises expand their global footprint through mergers and acquisitions and create subsidiary brands and products, their external attack surfaces can change by as much as 9% each month. When enterprises’ attack surfaces are constantly fluctuating, they expose themselves to critical vulnerabilities that open paths of least resistance for attackers to exploit sensitive customer data. Most enterprises also use web apps for vital business e-commerce and business communications. However, they may not be aware that web apps account for 50% of high and critical issues of all assets exposed to the internet per recent analysis of CyCognito’s anonymized and normalized customer data. Join Emma Zaballos, Product Marketing Manager at CyCognito, and Jonathan Keÿzer, Sales Engineer at CyCognito, as they discuss anonymized customer insights from CyCognito’s External Risk Insights Brief report. This webinar will help your Security team understand how to protect its most critical assets from being easily exploited by attackers as your enterprise expands to include more subsidiary brands and web applications. In this webinar, you will learn: - Why 56% of the critical and high vulnerabilities that created paths of least resistance to customer assets were found on assets managed or owned by subsidiaries - Why enterprises are generally unaware of an astounding 10-30% of these subsidiaries before they start monitoring their attack surfaces - Why enterprises struggle to remediate critical issues despite knowing an asset’s location and its issues 54% of the time - Why web apps account for 50% of high and critical issues and make up over a third of customer requests to validate that a remediation effort was successful

CyCognito is solving one of the most fundamental business problems in cybersecurity: the need to understand how attackers view your organization, where they are most likely to break in and how you can eliminate that risk. CyCognito was founded by national intelligence agency veterans whose understanding of how attackers exploit blind spots led them to create a new approach to risk assessment. The Palo Alto-based company is funded by leading Silicon Valley venture capitalists and its mission is to help organizations eliminate their “shadow risk” — critical security risk that is often unknown to them. The volume of these unknown unknowns has widened dramatically as organizations have transformed from IT environments with well-defined perimeters to hyperconnected, fluid IT ecosystems that span on-premises, cloud, partner and subsidiary environments. CyCognito addresses shadow risk with a category-defining, transformative platform that automates offensive cybersecurity operations to provide reconnaissance capabilities superior to those of attackers. Its next-generation security risk assessment platform enables Fortune 500 and other leading companies around the world to autonomously discover, understand, prioritize and eliminate their organization’s shadow risk based upon a global analysis of their external attack surface and the attack vectors that a real attacker would likely exploit.
