Cyber Exposure Management is an emerging discipline that helps you see, predict and act to address risk across your entire attack surface. Built on the foundations of risk-based vulnerability management, Cyber Exposure Management best practices introduce a common risk-focused and metric-based language that everyone understands—from security and IT Ops to executive leadership and key stakeholders.
Introducing the Cyber Exposure Lifecycle
The Cyber Exposure Lifecycle gives you a framework to continuously assess the health and security posture of your program.
Identify and map every asset for visibility across any digital platform
Leverage threat intelligence and business context to predict which vulnerabilities attackers are likely to exploit on assets that matter
Remediate or mitigate critical risks and drive process improvement by communicating key metrics
Cyber Exposure unifies your security goals with your business objectives. It enables you to make better-informed decisions based on addressing risks and driving improvements by measuring and comparing key security metrics.
By applying the Cyber Exposure lifecycle to your cybersecurity program, you will be able to confidently answer these questions
Where are we exposed?
Where should we prioritize based on risk?
Are we reducing our exposure over time?
How do we compare to our peers?
Great security starts with complete and continuous visibility of your modern attack surface including cloud services, Active Directory, operational technologies, modern web apps and a growing remote workforce. But, with nearly half of security leaders reporting their security organizations lack a holistic understanding and assessment of their entire attack surface, many are struggling to identify all potential exposure points. To address this, Tenable has built the broadest assessment capabilities, with market leading coverage.
- Full visibility of your entire attack surface
- Comprehensive assessment capabilities designed for diverse asset types
- Continuous assessment of cloud assets leveraging cloud-native technologies
- Market leading vulnerability coverage, built by Tenable research
Current vulnerability prioritization processes rate more than half of new vulnerabilities as either high or critical severity, yet only 8% of those vulnerabilities have a public exploit available, and only a fraction of these are used in attacks. Differentiating between issues that don’t pose risk, and predicting those that do, is crucial to addressing the remediation burden faced by operations teams.
Exposure.ai powers Tenable's market-leading prediction capabilities
By continuously analyzing more than 20 trillion aspects of threat, vulnerability and asset information with machine-learning algorithms, exposure.ai enables your organization to focus first on issues that matter most, automatically prioritizing vulnerabilities actively targeted on the assets that pose the greatest risk to your business.
- Reduce remediation efforts by focusing first on risks that matter most
- Automate prioritization with prediction to proactively address vulnerabilities attackers are most likely to exploit for faster response
- Have a clear picture of asset criticality and value to your business
To Address Risk
Finally, address risks across your entire attack surface. The Tenable Cyber Exposure Platform translates raw technical data into business insights you can use. Calculate, communicate and compare your overall exposure and effectiveness at addressing identified issues
Quantify Risk with Cyber Exposure Scores
Envision being able to measure your cyber risk through a single easily understood and defendable score. Tenable’s Cyber Exposure Score (CES) is an objective measure of cyber risk, automatically calculated based on the threats posed by discovered vulnerabilities, the probability attackers may leverage the vulnerability, the criticality of the affected asset and the predicted impact if the attack is successful.
Calculated for every asset, groups of assets and across your entire organization, Cyber Exposure Scores enable you to track, trend and compare cyber risk internally against different business units and benchmark externally against peers - enabling business-aligned security leaders to drive strategic decisions on where best to focus resources in addressing cyber risk.Get your Cyber Exposure Score
Communicate With Confidence
Do you know how your organization’s security processes compare to peers and industry best practices? Tenable Lumin can help you identify areas of improvement in your foundational security controls by measuring key metrics including:
Assessment Maturity: measure and compare depth and frequency of assessments so you can demonstrate which areas of your organization are falling behind at identifying key risks.
Remediation Maturity: measure how effectively your organization responds to identified risks and enable your security team to accurately communicate how quickly your team addresses emerging vulnerabilities, threats and risks.
- Communicate risk and program maturity in a clear and concise language
- Benchmark your security program against peers
- Build a business case to drive improvement
