Organizations’ unmanaged internet assets continue to jeopardize their overall security posture with expansive attack surfaces for bad actors to exploit and introduce new risks and incidents. In 2020, internet-facing cloud assets were involved in 73% of reported cybersecurity incidents. Censys’ mission is to provide intuitive attack surface management, enabling organizations to comprehensively manage their Internet-facing assets and risks regardless of host location, including discovering previously unknown internet assets.
Censys’ attack surface management platform continuously discovers organizations’ internet assets and monitors them as part of a comprehensive inventory, identifies egregious security issues, and prevents oversights from becoming vulnerabilities by ensuring that assets are protected by integrating with existing security solutions.
“Censys provides a consolidated view into both internal and external attack surface and dependencies enabling security leaders to make informed risk decisions and provide swifter response to issues,” said Sunil Kurkure, Managing Director, Intel Capital. “As organizations continue to seek added protection against today’s advanced cyber threats, Censys has an opportunity to further build its attack surface management solution to help CISOs better manage the ever-expanding security perimeter. We’re thrilled to be a part of the exciting journey ahead.”
