Attack Surface Management: Impact on Trustworthiness
This IDC Perspective discusses attack surface management. As risk is a foundational element in IDC's Future of Trust framework, organizations need systems to measure and help improve their risk posture. Attack surface management, with its external view of the organization, can surface vulnerabilities in systems the organization did not know existed. Remediating the issues before the organization is attacked improves its perception of trustworthiness from suppliers and customers.
"The increased complexity of environments and expansion beyond what used to be a defined perimeter has many searching for solutions that help security teams understand and manage their entire attack surface," says Michelle Abraham, research director, Security and Trust at IDC. "Improvement in risk posture translates to improvements in trust."
