Outpost24 releases a unified exposure management solution
The cyber risk platform provider Outpost24 has announced the release of Outpost24 CORE. This unified exposure management solution gives unprecedented visibility and real-time insights into an organisation's IT asset inventory and threat exposure across the entire attack surface.
With the threat of cyberattacks at an all-time high, exposure management is now a business problem impacting the bottom line. CISOs are increasingly challenged to demonstrate results from their security programs and investment to get executive buy-in. There is much at stake. The US Securities and Exchange Commission recently notified executives involved in the 2020 SolarWinds attack that they may be investigated.
“Raising awareness in the C-suite and connecting cybersecurity with business outcome has never been more critical. No matter the size of the organisation or what industry, every board and C-level discussion of security initiatives is driven by business impact. We’ve developed Outpost24 CORE to provide unified asset inventory and exposure insights, so that CISOs and executive leaders can be confident they are deploying security resources in the best possible way to protect their organisation from the biggest risks,” says Brendan Hogan, chief strategy officer of Outpost24.
According to the most recent IBM Cost of a Data Breach report, 83% of companies do not know if a data breach will happen, but when. Usually more than once. The report found the average cost of a data breach to be a staggering US$9.44 million.
“Outpost24 CORE provides actionable insight of an organisation's asset exposure, comprising not only infrastructure but application and user risk. This innovative exposure management solution consolidates siloed vulnerability and threat intelligence data from different assessment tools into a single view, with a quantitative risk grading to help security teams understand, monitor and report on the progress and efficacy of their risk mitigation activities based on the likelihood of exploitation and business criticality,” says the company.
“It also allows organisations to easily group their IT assets and drill down on how risks are controlled and mitigated across different technologies and business units to inform security resource and investment decisions.”
“We help organisations improve cyber resilience with a complete range of exposure management solutions. Outpost24’s cloud platform unifies asset inventory, automates security assessments, and quantifies risk in business context. Executives and security teams around the world trust Outpost24 to identify and prioritise the most important security issues across their entire IT infrastructure to accelerate risk reduction.”
Outpost24 CORE combines five important features fundamental to a successful Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) program, identified by Gartner as a top cybersecurity trend for 2023.
These include a unified asset inventory for complete visibility, consolidated vulnerability data and threat exposure, a threat intelligence-powered vulnerability prioritisation engine, business impact analysis and logic mapping, and external attack surface management.
Outpost24 CORE is available immediately to all Outpost24 customers and partners.
