London, UK – 08 June 2021 – Outpost24, an innovator in full-stack cybersecurity assessment, today announced it has released a range of new product features to help customers identify the attack surface and quantify web application risks associated with their expanding digital footprint.
Web application attacks account for 39% of all data breaches, and the acceleration of digital transformation during the pandemic only made the problem worse. Without proper risk visibility of their external digital footprint, organizations are spending too much time securing and patching low-priority items while leaving high-risk application vulnerabilities unaddressed. The Scout application attack surface discovery and assessment tool, introduced by Outpost24, is the only solution to provide continuous visibility of internet-facing applications and a quantified risk scoring against the most common vectors used by hackers to carry out attacks.
“With a plethora of inadequately secured applications being introduced daily and weekly to an organization, security teams are struggling to keep up with their ever-expanding attack surface and reduce application risks. Our innovative discovery tool will enable organizations to pinpoint the security weakness in their digital footprint and prioritize remediation for high-risk areas with the greatest efficiency.” Bob Egner, Head of Products at Outpost24.
The Outpost24 product portfolio is the only full-stack cybersecurity assessment on the market today. In addition to Scout, other significant new product releases include:
- DevOps security testing: Partnership with DefenseCode for SAST (Static Application Security Testing) to automate testing for application source code, and for SCA (Software Composition Analysis) to assess third party components for vulnerabilities
- Risk-based vulnerability prioritization: Enhanced Farsight threat activity filter to provide a clear indication of active CVE’s for effective prioritization and additional exploit links for advanced research purposes
- Container security: Added Container Inspection view in Outscan RC to provide our customers with a seamless full stack experience across network security, application security and containers
