Beyond vulnerability scanning: Enhancing attack surface management for more proactive security

The State of Attack Surface Management 2022

2022 is the year of external attack surface management.

Randori recently partnered with ESG to gain a more complete picture of the current state of Attack Surface Management. We surveyed 398 IT and security decision-makers in the US and Canada to find out how they manage their attack surfaces, how they adapt their programs for evolving threats, and the biggest hurdles to effective attack surface management.

Key Findings:

  • 7 in 10 organizations have been compromised via an unknown, unmanaged, or poorly managed internet-facing asset in the past year.
  • It takes more than 80 hours for the average organization to build a picture of their attack surface.
  • External attack surface management is the number one investment priority for large enterprises in 2022.
To stay ahead of attackers, organizations must be able to accurately monitor their attack surfaces, maintain fully updated asset inventories, and truly judge which vulnerabilities to patch for the greatest risk reduction.
