Active Threat Surface Management
Across All Channels & Asset Types
NST Assure's Threat Surface Discovery Engines use machine intelligence to discover all your exposed footprint of assets, including the ones from third-party and fourth-party partner integrations, and continuously monitor your active threat surface across all channels, including the internet (clearnet), deep web, and dark web. Our platform provides valuable security insights and actionable intelligence to help strengthen your overall security posture.
All Possible Attack Vectors and Vulnerabilities
Conventional attack surface management solutions limit the vulnerability assessment to passive observations and technology-centric misconfigurations. NST Assure Threat Surface Management service uncovers and validates vulnerabilities across exposed workloads like web apps, mobile apps, services and APIs, network infrastructure assets, cloud assets, components, and more. NST Assure identifies potential attack vectors and vulnerabilities that attackers might use to gain initial access in alignment with MITRE PRE-ATT&CK to help organizations prioritize their security efforts and allocate resources more effectively.
Security Control Validation
For prevention Defense Evasion
NST Assure continuously tests the efficacy of all your perimeter security controls like WAF/WAAP solutions, CDN/ALB, RASP, DNS security controls, etc., to ensure they cannot be bypassed with the latest sophisticated attack methods and defense evasion techniques. This continuous assurance of the effectiveness of perimeter security controls helps to measure the ROI of these solutions and define the strategy for improved security posture.
Exposure Discovery and Validation
NST Assure Threat Surface Management service discovers and validates all kinds of inadvertent exposures of data, assets, services, configurations, applications, and personal or payment information before attackers misuse it. The comprehensive discovery ensures timely identification of issues like misconfigurations in cloud storage, hard-coded credentials and other sensitive data in exposed code repositories, unsecured databases, insecure services, leaked organization data from public breaches, use of default credentials, unencrypted communication channels, sensitive path exposures, sensitive data from meta files and more.
DISCOVER & ANALYZE RELATED
Security Breaches and Incidents
NST Assure Threat Surface Management platform continuously monitors events and incidents, such as published breaches, to detect sensitive organizational data like usernames, passwords, and proprietary information. Additionally, it monitors and validates spearphishing campaigns, promptly notifying users of active threats. By regularly reviewing traces of adversary actions via nonstandard communication channels, the platform enables early detection of targeted attempts by malicious groups for tool staging or data exfiltration.
CONVERT YOUR THREAT SURFACE DATA TO
Actionable Cyber Threat Informed Defense (CTID) intelligence
Operationalize your curated threat surface management observations with NST Assure to generate actionable Cyber Threat Informed Defense Intelligence (CTID) and enhance your blue team capabilities. Our algorithmic developed CTID intelligence can be integrated seamlessly into your security gateways, WAF/WAAP solutions, and SOC platforms such as SIEM and SOAR, empowering your blue team to continuously and proactively monitor and respond to potential threats.
Proactively identify chances of initial access or attacks from adversary/APT, ransomware, or targeted attack groups by exploiting vulnerabilities with our asset-centric threat profiling. Threat profiles of the monitored assets and workloads are created, updated, and continuously analyzed for dynamic correlation of exposure and possible security risks with the help of AI/ML-powered discovery and validation. This approach also ensures false-positive removal through correlation and historical vulnerability analysis.
AI/ML-powered, algorithmic threat prediction makes it possible to defend against attacks and prepare for such attempts proactively. Attack trends exploit availability, industry, regional relevance, and exposure factors are considered for this process. NST Assure also considers the possibility of vulnerability chaining and the business impact associated with an exploitation event for this prediction.
Exposure Risk Scoring and Trend Analysis
Each discovered dataset is mapped to the inherent risk based on factors such as service exposure, direct and associated validated vulnerabilities, context, and criticality. NST Assure platform programmatically calculates a cumulative asset category-wise risk score for the dataset type and an overall organizational exposure risk score. Historical analysis of the asset category and organization-wide risk scoring is performed for trend analysis, helping the security team understand changes in security posture over time.
NST Assure Threat Surface Management supports immediate notification of sensitive security observation of Critical and High nature as soon as it is discovered and validated. This feature enables your security teams to proactively address these observations and prevent potential security breaches.
ON DEMAND SUPPORT FOR
Measuring the exploitation chances of threat surface discoveries might be valuable for proper business impact calculations and informed decision-making on vulnerability management. NST Assure provides optional add-on support for penetration testing of selected security observations from threat surface discovery. This allows organizations to assess the potential impact of identified vulnerabilities accurately.
EFFECTIVE AND TIMELY
Vulnerability Management Orchestration (VMO)
With Rich Collaboration and Support Features.
NST Assure's Continuous Autonomous Penetration Testing, powered by the Vulnerability Management Orchestration (VMO) module, offers rich collaboration and control features for managing vulnerability remediation. Customers can access reports, trackers, POCs, and artifacts, schedule debriefing sessions, and plan the revalidation of findings with a seamless workflow. Vulnerability-specific support actions are available for Critical and High Severity observations, such as disputing observations, requesting more details, revalidating specific vulnerabilities, proposing new severity scores, or requesting additional information about findings.
