Modern attack surfaces have become more complex. If you don’t have complete visibility into your attack surface, you may struggle to find and fix all of the vulnerabilities across your organization.
You cannot protect what you don’t know is there. The first step of vulnerability assessment is a complete inventory of your environment whether it is in one location, or multiple. With increasingly complex environments and diverse sets of asset classes this can be challenging.
