External attack surface management
Uncover your known and unknown digital assets like a hacker would and reduce application risks with quantified attack surface exposure
Mapping your web application attack surface
External facing applications provide crucial revenue streams and are the main source for connecting you with your customer base. However, they can become a source of exploitation for hackers if they contain vulnerabilities. With application development evolving at high speed, security leaders must understand the attack vectors and unknown assets that hackers could use to enter the system.
Our external attack surface management tool is the only solution to provide real time visibility of your application attack surface whilst pinpointing potential cyber risks in your digital ecosystem. The tool enables organizations to visualize their security exposure against the most common entry points for application attacks and highlight areas that require immediate attention for effective risk management.
Common attack vectors and security exposure
Using HTTP websites without encryption and unsecured redirects can expose your sensitive data to hackers and lead to credential stuffing. Identify if correct authentication exists and apply restriction controls to prevent unauthorized access
Page creation method
Developing a website with insecure code means there are more potential vulnerabilities to exploit. Scout locates where out of date code languages and vulnerable components in your application exist helping you ensure a secure release and reduce cyber risks
Degree of distribution
The sheer number of application pages and unknown assets is a breeding ground for exploitable vulnerabilities and a challenge for risk management. Easily identify every page interlinking every domain to uncover potential entry points for hacker exploits
Authentication is the process of verifying the identity of a user accessing your application in real time. Restricting access to sensitive data is critical to keeping the bad guys out and reducing your application risk
The attack surface increases with the number of different input fields you have on a web application and can lead to a range of Cross-Site Scripting attacks if these are left unaddressed before production
Active content technologies
When an application runs scripts the content becomes active. You need to know if your web app has been developed using vulnerable and outdated active content technologies to reduce security exposure
Cookies are an essential security control for website security by monitoring session activity in real time and ensuring anyone who sends requests to your website are authorized and keeps hackers away
Usage of HTTP port 80 rather than the more secure HTTPS port 443 makes your application susceptible to unauthorized access. It’s important for security teams to identify open ports and close down those not in use
