Infographic: The State of Cyber Asset Management

By

Cyber asset management is now a critical component of an organization's cybersecurity hygiene and posture management. The more cyber assets in an organization's environment, the harder it becomes to understand the full scope of the relationship between those assets. In fact, 69% of organizations admit that they have experienced at least one cyber-attack that started with an exploitation of an unknown, unmanaged, or poorly managed internet-facing asset.

The latest "State of Cyber Asset Management" infographic shares some interesting trends that we've seen across managing cyber assets to improve security hygiene.

Key takeaways and challenges:

  • On average organizations are using too many tools and devote 500+ hours to generate accurate IT asset inventory and audits.
  • Today, the most tracked cyber assets include software misconfigurations, coding errors, vulnerabilities, cloud workloads, user accounts, user entitlements and IoT devices.
  • Top challenges in understanding cyber assets including having accurate asset inventory across different organizations, leveraging multiple tools and conflicting data, and constant changes in their cyber asset landscape.

These challenges have initiated a new focus on CAASM. Teams are beginning to augment their existing IT and security solutions with CAASM tooling to better manage their cybersecurity hygiene and security posture.
