Inside the Informer External Attack Surface Management platform

Our scalable external attack surface management software harnesses the power of automated asset discovery, vulnerability scanning and integrated penetration testing to provide business-critical security insights and efficient attack surface monitoring in a single platform.

Informer Platform Vulnerability Detected

Attack surface discovery uncovers your internet-facing assets

Uncover your organization’s external attack surface in seconds with our cutting-edge attack surface discovery engine. Our EASM platform uses active scanning and leverages hundreds of data sources to quickly and efficiently identify all of your digital assets, using just your seed domain as the starting point.

Our continuous attack surface discovery process is designed to provide you with a comprehensive view of your entire online environment, even uncovering assets you may not have been aware of. And with our cyber intelligence data collected in real-time during scanning, you’ll have near-instant access to the information you need to take action and protect your organization from potential threats.

Asset Discovery
Informer Platform Connect Cloud Services

Connect your AWS, Azure and GCP cloud services

Take control of your cloud environment with Informer’s powerful cloud monitoring tools. With just a few clicks, you can easily connect to your cloud infrastructure and gain real-time insights into your externally facing assets, such as load balancers, app engines, and data stores.

Our platform is designed to keep up with the fast-changing nature of cloud environments, so you can rest assured that you always have the latest information about your development and infrastructure configuration changes. And with our advanced monitoring capabilities, you can quickly identify potential security threats and take action to prevent them from becoming a problem.


Informer Platform Assign Vulnerabilities

Prioritize risks across your external attack surface

Stay one step ahead with our advanced scanning solution. With Informer, you can continuously scan your assets for over 40,000 application and infrastructure-level vulnerabilities, ensuring that you’re always aware of potential security risks.

Choose the criticality of your assets and schedule scans accordingly – whether you want to run scans daily, weekly, or monthly, we’ve got you covered. And with each vulnerability assigned a CVSS rating to determine its severity, you can prioritize your remediation efforts based on real risk, effectively reducing your attack surface.

Vulnerability Discovery
Informer Platform Create Reports

Real time penetration testing integrated in the platform

Take your vulnerability assessment program to the next level . Our solution combines the best of both worlds by providing automated security scanning and manual penetration testing in one convenient platform.

Using the cyber intelligence gathered from your discovered assets and vulnerabilities, you can select which assets require manual penetration testing, ensuring that you’re focusing your efforts on the areas that matter most. And with real-time results complete with severity ratings and remediation advice, you can quickly take action to protect your organization from potential threats.

Penetration testing
Informer Platform Security Alerting

Be notified of environment changes that could expose your data

Stay ahead of potential security threats with Informer’s advanced notification system. Our platform provides instant alerts for vulnerable assets, misconfigurations, and changes to your IT environment, ensuring that you’re always aware of potential risks as soon as they’re detected.

With customizable alert rules, you can configure notifications for individual assets or entire domains, as well as specific risk triggers such as exposed open ports, high-risk vulnerabilities, and newly discovered assets in unfamiliar geolocations.

Security Insights
Informer Platform Security Retesting

Automated retesting validates your fixes

Ensure your organization’s security with Informer’s automated regression testing solution. Our platform offers the ability to validate fixes for vulnerabilities found by our scanners and penetration testers, ensuring that your assets are secure and fully protected from potential security threats.

With automated retesting that can be scheduled to run continuously or on-demand, you have the flexibility to remediate vulnerabilities and check their effectiveness on your terms, fitting seamlessly into your organization’s release cycles.

Frequently asked questions about Attack Surface Management

Understanding your complete external attack surface is the first step to reducing your cyber risk.

What is Attack Surface Management?

Attack surface management is the continuous discovery, inventory, prioritization, classification, and security monitoring of an organization’s IT ecosystem– the external digital assets that transmit, contain, or process sensitive data.

What is an External Attack Surface Management?

External attack surface management (EASM) is a cybersecurity discipline that identifies and manages the risks presented by internet-facing assets. EASM refers to the processes and technologies necessary to identify these external-facing systems, as well as control their vulnerabilities.

Why is Attack Surface Management Important?

Attack surface management is crucial for the prevention and mitigation of risks stemming from legacy, IoT, and shadow IT assets. It also works to prevent human mistakes or omissions such as phishing or data leaks.

What is the Attack Surface of a network?

The network attack surface is the entire area of your organization or system that consists of all vulnerable hardware and software which may easily be exploited on network devices by an unauthenticated user.

What is Attack Surface Mapping?

Attack surface mapping is an analysis phase that maps all the internet-facing vulnerabilities that an attacker could take advantage of.
