Censys To Unveil Attack Surface Visibility Platform at Black Hat

Enterprise-level attack surface management software platform provides automatic attack surface monitoring and real-time alerts.

LAS VEGAS — Censys, Inc., the leading provider of Internet security data trusted by the likes of Google and The US Department of Homeland Security, today from Black Hat USA 2019, announced the upcoming launch of its enterprise-level attack surface management software platform that provides real-time visibility and actionable insights over entire network attack surfaces.

Available this fall, the Censys SaaS offering will enable security and IT personnel from enterprise organizations to automatically detect, view and monitor all assets and infrastructure including hosts, software, domains, and IOT devices, in order to mitigate exposures and threats, and to proactively prevent attacks before they lead to brand damage and data breach. The platform’s easy-to-use dashboard gives users real-time visibility of risks, vulnerabilities and exposures from an attacker’s perspective and notifies users when they should investigate changes in assets and anomalous behavior. A network changelog displays a timeline of security events such as certificate and domain issue and expiration dates and when new services were exposed to the Internet.

“The possibility of discovering an unknown asset or vulnerability that could be exploited by adversaries keeps the IT community up at night. In order to prevent critical security risks, corporations absolutely must have an up-to-date inventory of all assets and connected devices used by their employees, contractors and vendors,” said Censys CEO and co-founder David Corcoran. “The ability to continuously monitor your global attack surface and to receive real-time notifications on threats or suspicious activity will take a large burden off IT and security teams.”

Since 2013, Censys has scanned the entire Internet for security relevant data to provide a comprehensive view of the world’s networks and devices. The new Censys platform allows businesses to gain the same security insights and global visibility that security researchers and threat hunters have been leveraging through Censys for the past six years. Earlier this year, research firm CB Insights selected Censys as one of 28 companies pioneering technology with the potential to transform the cybersecurity industry for its ability to fight threats by analyzing real-time internet data.

Premiering at Black Hat USA 2019, Censys will be offering product demonstrations and custom company exposure reports at booth #IC2206.
