Automation for proactively discovering gaps that an
attacker could find while conducting reconnaissance
External Asset Discovery Overview
As more and more systems evolve to include one or more externally-facing components, unmanaged
assets (such as Shadow IT) can expand external attack surfaces. Ongoing identification of current and
emergent assets that are publicly visible are critical to cybersecurity resilience.
The Cymulate Attack Surface Management solution efficiently identifies and assesses externally-facing assets
for better control and security.
External Asset Discovery Challenges
Difficulty identifying and tracking assets across on-premise, hybrid, and cloud infrastructure
Proliferation of unmonitored assets – from legacy infrastructure, to shadow IT, and more
Scaling remote operations and distributed computing create network complexity
Evaluation of the intrinsic risk of identified assets can be challenging without context
How Cymulate Identifies
Vulnerable Exposed Assets
The Attack Surface Management components of the
Cymulate Platform simulates an extensive set of external
reconnaissance attack phases to identify public-facing assets.
When new assets are identified, a series of non-disruptive
probes and sub-scans determine the susceptibility of that
asset to threat activity.
With appropriate consent, these tools can also be used to scan
third-party tools and systems to evaluate additional areas
of external risk.

The Benefits of Cymulate External Asset Discovery
Find exposed assets threat actors may target using the same techniques they would use
Validate discovered assets’ resilience
to attacks and efficacy exposure with compensating controls
Prioritize remediation activity according to the potential impact, available controls, and overall scope
