IDC Innovators: Attack Surface Management, 2021
IDC Innovators are emerging vendors with revenue <$100 million that have demonstrated either a groundbreaking business model or an innovative new technology — or both. This IDC Innovators study profiles three emerging ASM vendors: CyCognito, FireCompass, and Randori.
"The outside-in view of an organization's IT assets enables discovery of unknown assets that have been added to the network going beyond what is viewable in vulnerability management," says Michelle Abraham, research director, Security and Trust at IDC. "It is the same ever-changing view a threat actor has, which provides information on how it would get in and what damage it could do. Automation of continuous attacks shows a security team how to make their organization less vulnerable measuring improvement over time."
