Attack Surface Reduction
The attack surface is the total space for exploit within the infrastructure. Enterprise infrastructures have a habit of moving and changing with little notice or control, making it nearly impossible to see what’s what. You can’t defend what you can’t see.
Those looking to snatch and grab your data hunt for your weaknesses. The only way to get ahead of a cybercriminal is to reduce the battlefield – the attack surface – vulnerable to exploit.
How does that happen?
The five major steps are:
- Visualize vulnerabilities
- Control the endpoints
- Segment, segment, segment
- Use analytics
- Prioritize threats according to accessibility
That’s a lot to manage. Staff and time come at a premium. With FireMon, you change the game.
FireMon is ready to reduce your attack surface, because only FireMon combines the powerful fusion of vulnerability management, continuous compliance and orchestration.
The FireMon Solution
Patching at random is one “strategy,” but this accomplishes little. Quantify your risks with simulation and collapse your attack surface.
Attack simulation shows you the priorities based on accessibility. See the specific exposures in your network and simulate just how the attackers can exploit your weaknesses. Now that’s much more than random patching.
The sprawling attack surface is a nightmare to prove compliance. While external threats are very real, so too is non-compliance.
Prevent a compliance failure by seeing the implications of rules and their potential shortfalls. Use 350+ security controls tailored to your environment and apply the right security policy for the right context.
Enterprises adopt Zero Trust and segmented networks to improve security. Manage security for 50,000 segments with ease and simplicity.
Once attack path simulation reveals the network’s exposures, orchestration changes network policy to regain control and prevent lateral movement. You’re in control; quarantine any portion of the network with security policies and stop any compromise from spreading.
The FireMon Difference
- Real-Time Monitoring: Sub-second vulnerability and risk analysis, instant visibility of the attack surface
- Full Data Retention: Comprehensive network history, revealing forgotten attack paths
- Customizable Search & Reporting: Find exposures, quantify your risk, automate remediation
- Automation & Orchestration: Context-aware priorities, change management that removes risk and potential threats
Calculate Network Reachability
Risk Analyzer allows you to see and manage your network’s risk posture in real-time. Risk Analyzer’s enterprise-ready architecture handles large, complex hybrid networks with tens of thousands of hosts and security results and can easily calculate an attacker’s potential accessibility to your network and assess the potential damage.
Simulate Potential Attacks
Risk Analyzer can trace possible paths attackers might use to gain access to your critical assets. With Risk Analyzer, you can determine where multiple exploits could be used in combination to penetrate your network. Using visual attack paths and zero-day attack graphs, you can assess an attack’s impact and prioritize patching accordingly or adapt device rules to reroute access to address the risk immediately.
Score Attack Simulations
Risk Analyzer can score all attack simulations for risk and impact and then re-score once you’ve made improvements to determine the impact changes. You can get a complete score of your network risk with a user dashboard that gives you real-time visibility of your risk posture by policy rule and asset.
Analyze “What If” Scenarios
Risk Analyzer enables you to virtually patch systems and repeat risk analysis to compare various patch scenarios to ensure the biggest impact on efforts. You can also determine where multiple exploits can be used in combination to reach an asset as well as assess any potential impact to other parts of your network.
Risk Analyzer integrates with your vulnerability management solutions (Qualys, Rapid7 and Tenable) to measure risk and identify potential attack penetration in your network. By collecting and reporting on the real-time configurations of network access controls deployed on your network security devices, Risk Analyzer delivers accurate remediation recommendations so that you can prioritize and optimize your patch management strategy.
Network Visibility Monitoring
Lumeta is a real-time visibility, vulnerability, and risk management solution that enables cloud, network, and security teams to find and secure unknown, rogue and shadow clouds, network infrastructure, and endpoints.
Real-Time Situational Awareness
Gain real-time visibility into your dynamic infrastructure including cloud, virtual, physical, software-defined network infrastructure, endpoints, and operational technology (OT)/Internet of Things (IoT). With Lumeta, you can eliminate 100% of your blind spots and monitor changes or unusual behaviors to eliminate any gaps in coverage that may leave you exposed.
100% Hybrid Cloud Visibility
Lumeta discovers, maps and alerts on topology changes across the entire hybrid enterprise, including multi-cloud environments. Delivering a holistic view across all of your physical and virtual/cloud infrastructures, Lumeta CloudVisibility provides an authoritative perspective for your enterprise security operations center (SOC) to prioritize issues for remediation and ensure network protection.
Real-Time Breach Detection
Lumeta monitors the hybrid infrastructure for telltale signs of nefarious activity and prioritizes findings for investigation and remediation. With Lumeta, your threat intelligence feeds are made actionable to correlate a comprehensive understanding of your enterprise’s active IP address space against known threats as new threat data becomes available, and as new endpoints connect to the network.
Identify Leak Paths
Lumeta discovers and monitors every cloud account, network, path and endpoint for changes in real-time to identify new leak paths that are often due to misconfigurations or malicious activity. Lumeta finds inbound and outbound leak paths to the Internet, virtual private cloud, in between network-segmented, firewalled enclaves, or across IoT/OT environments.
Recursive Network Indexing
Lumeta uses a unique patent-pending technology to produce a comprehensive network summary that includes a recursively crawling cycle of targeting, indexing, tracing, monitoring, profiling, and displaying a network’s state. Through passive and active methods, you get a view of your entire infrastructure, including cloud instances and assets, as well as all IPv4/IPv6 connections and devices.
Threat & Vulnerability Management
Risk Vulnerability Management
Outside threats have the potential to scale the wall through any access point on the network. However, not all threats are created equal. If the asset is of high value, customer credit card info for example, its compromise would have a bigger impact than that of a lesser-value asset.
FireMon allows network and security teams to map the potential paths an attacker could take based on real-time configuration data and vulnerability scanner feeds. Then it helps prioritize the gaps for remediation, so the most impactful get taken care of first.
How It Is Done
- Reachability analysis calculates how easy it would be for an attacker to reach assets through and assess the potential damage
- Graphical attack paths trace the possible path an attacker might use and identifies where an attack can be stopped with the least amount of time and effort
- Risk scoring measures attack simulations for risk and impact. Re-score once you make improvements to determine the impact of the change.
- Patch simulation patches systems virtually so you can compare various patch scenarios to prioritize efforts to those with the biggest impact
- Access path analysis traces all potential traffic paths, identifies problematic routes and then recommends adjustments to redirect access
