Defense Surface Management: The Foundation Required to Properly Implement a Continuous Threat Exposure Management Program

Automation and threat prioritization are necessary to properly assess, configure, optimize and align current security tools to optimally defend against advanced threats in a timely manner. That’s the value of Defense Surface Management.

Despite the growing investment in security tools, most organizations still do not know how effective their security stack is against their specific and expanding threat profile. Without a clear picture of the most relevant threats or how well their current tools work against them, organizations will continue to struggle to understand their cybersecurity readiness. It’s time for a new approach…

Defense Surface Management (DSM) automates the laborious and time-consuming process of operationalizing threat-informed defense while combining and contextualizing information sourced from Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) tooling, defensive capabilities, and threat data to function as an intelligence layer that empowers organizations to continuously scrutinize the dynamic interplay between threats and defenses.

This whitepaper outlines how organizations can use DSM to prioritize and optimize their defenses and reduce threat exposure in a manner that is both efficient and effective.
