How to improve attack surface visibility with JupiterOne

By

Attack surface visibility is critical to securing a modern day business. With hundreds of thousands of cyber assets like devices, code repos, devices, third-party or open source libraries, policies, IAM procedures, and, of course, people, an average security team isn’t equipped to build an accurate cyber asset inventory. In fact, it’s not uncommon for an ephemeral asset to undergo a change without anyone noticing. 

A large part of attack surface visibility lies in understanding the relationships between your cyber assets that impact how attackers can enter your cyber asset universe, navigate through related assets, and exploit your organization’s most critical assets. 

Comprehensive visibility into your attack surface is critical to securing your organization. By automatically monitoring your attack surface for gaps, threats, out-of-date access, compliance drift, and more, you can hold your organization to the security standards that work for you. 

What is Attack Surface Visibility?

Your attack surface consists of every possible entry point that an attacker can exploit to gain access to unauthorized data. Being able to visualize and monitor your assets and how they relate to each other dramatically reduces the discovery, triage, and remediation processes for incident response teams, and helps you stay compliant with industry compliance frameworks. 

Visualizing your attack surface is also a great tool to understand how your cyber assets connect with each other. Many cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM) tools present your data in both a list view and an interactive graph view. With the interactive graph view, you can navigate through your cloud environment to see where your vulnerabilities lie and the scope of each threat. 

Manage Your Attack Surface with The JupiterOne Platform

JupiterOne’s CAASM solution can help you gain complete visibility over your cloud, multi-cloud, or hybrid environments. JupiterOne integrates into your cyber asset environment and enables your security team to visualize your entire environment from one central location. 

Complete Asset Inventory

Cyber assets encompass more than just endpoints and devices - they also include code repos, IAM policies, SaaS apps, security controls, vulnerability findings, and more. That’s why inventorying your cyber asset universe while keeping it up-to-date is quite the challenge. 

Whether you prefer a list view or a graph view, JupiterOne ingests your entire tech stack with over 180 integrations. Once deployed, JupiterOne aggregates, normalizes, and consolidates your data into a graph database for easy viewing. Plus, JupiterOne keeps your data up to date so you can always know what’s going on and where it’s happening. 

Attack Surface Visualization

Instead of sifting through hundreds of lists, immerse yourself in your cyber asset inventory. Because the JupiterOne platform is built on a graph database, you can get detailed, consistent visualizations of how your assets interact with each other. 

Visualization also allows you to see the scope of threats and incidents for easier isolation and remediation. 

Gap Analysis

Having access to such a large repository for information can be overwhelming. Where do you start? The JupiterOne platform allows you to query your data and create custom dashboards. 

  • Query your data: get answers to complex questions by leveraging thousands of pre-built queries in natural language or J1QL. Alternatively, you can create your custom queries to get answers specific to your team’s needs. Any JupiterOne query can be turned into an automated alert so you can get insight into your environment in real-time. 
  • Insights dashboards: detailed, real-time information is at  your fingertips with our insights dashboards! Our Insights Dashboards for Incident Response help you get to the bottom of any security investigation by drilling deeper into specific assets, accelerate incident response times, and uncover new risks with continuous monitoring capabilities. 

Maintain Compliance

Continued compliance and governance is key to any cybersecurity organization’s success, and JupiterOne can help there too. Whether you want out-of-the-box compliance frameworks like SOC2, HIPAA, or NIST, or create your own business standards, implementing them with JupiterOne gives you the power to detect compliance drift as soon as it happens. 

You can’t secure what you don’t know you have. Having a comprehensive, up-to-date asset inventory builds the foundation of all further cloud security processes. To get started with JupiterOne, reach out to our team and we’ll set up a demo.
