Cyber risk management firm expands offerings to include IoT device coverage

SUNNYVALE, CA and ALBUQUERQUE, NM July 19, 2017 RiskSense®, Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced it has expanded its RiskSense Attack Surface Validationcapabilities beyond networks, Web applications, and databases to Internet of Things (IoT) devices and Operational Technology (OT) networks to provide a holistic view of an organization's cyber risk exposure.

Organizations are already faced with monitoring and protecting a wide and deep attack surface that spans the network, endpoints, applications, cloud services, and mobile devices. The advent of microservices, connected IoT devices, and erosion of the air-gap security perimeter around industrial control systems (ICS) is extending this surface area exponentially.

"For decades, organizations have focused their security efforts on network perimeter defenses to protect servers, endpoints, and network equipment," said Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala, co-founder and CEO at RiskSense. "However, in an interconnected world, a 'hardware-defined' approach has lost its relevance. As organizations transition to software-defined networks, they need to look beyond the network layer to protect their IT assets. RiskSense's expanded Attack Surface Validation was designed to address this visibility gap and the risks associated with it."

RiskSense has expanded its Attack Surface Validation capabilities to cover the following technologies and environments:

  • Microservices and containers;
  • Smart logistic systems (i.e., smart vending machines);
  • Internet of Things (i.e., irrigation systems; traffic guidance systems);
  • Proprietary healthcare systems (i.e., pacemakers);
  • Internet-connected physical access control systems (i.e., mobile keyless entry systems);
  • Industrial control systems (i.e., electrical grid distribution control systems); and
  • Self-driving car technology and automotive control systems.

RiskSense has already implemented these capabilities with customers in key industry sectors. The RiskSense Attack Surface Validation Service provides a fully-managed assessment of vulnerabilities most likely to be exploited by cyber adversaries to infiltrate an organization and carry out lateral attacks inside the network. This service provides the visibility, prioritization, and actionable remediation recommendations to shrink an organization's attack surface and reduce overall cyber risk exposure.  

The RiskSense Attack Surface Validation Service is delivered via the company's award-winning RiskSense Platform, which contextualizes scanned data with external threat information. The resulting threat intelligence is then supplemented with human-interactive machine learning analysis. This leads to a more accurate prioritization of risk impacts. In addition, the RiskSense Platform provides synchronous access to findings in real-time and can be used to quickly orchestrate remediation actions and monitor the results. The platform is supported by a deep bench of industry-leading security researchers and exploit writers.
