WhiteHat Security and RiskIQ Partner to Fortify Digital Asset Management for Enterprise Threat Defenders

As businesses migrate to digital channels to improve their product
offerings, promote business and enhance customer and employee
engagement, their online presence and attack surface simultaneously
expand—opening doors to brand misuse and even data theft. In order to
address this mounting business issue, WhiteHat
Security, the leading application security provider committed to
securing digital business, today announced it has partnered with RiskIQ,
the global leader in digital threat management, to offer threat
defenders complete, point-in-time snapshots of their brands’ online
presence beyond the firewall.

The relationship leverages RiskIQ
Digital Footprint™ Snapshot technology to expand the reach of the WhiteHat
Discovery tool, used to find and catalog businesses’ web
applications and assets, from within the corporate network to across the
entire internet.

Digital attack surfaces are comprised of known, unknown, unsanctioned,
poorly maintained and lost internet-facing assets, such as web pages and
social media profiles, that may contain vulnerabilities open to
cyberattack. Given building breach, reputation and privacy compliance
risks, security teams must have the ability to map, inventory and
monitor business-relevant assets outside the firewall.

Now with RiskIQ Digital Footprint Snapshot, WhiteHat Discovery customers
can access a timestamped, automated discovery and detailed inventory of
external assets that comprise an attack surface. The resulting report
allows enterprises to discover and understand unknown, rogue and exposed
internet-facing web assets, apps and infrastructure across diverse
domains, ANS, IPs, hosting sites and service providers that are
connected with their organization. The information contained in the
snapshot can be used by vulnerability management teams to augment and
enhance vulnerability assessment tools and asset inventory systems.

Benefits of the enhanced WhiteHat Discovery solution include:

“WhiteHat is known for its ability to provide an extensive view of
assets, and by partnering with our team, customers will have more
visibility and an unobstructed view into their digital presence, making
the pertinent data easy to see and, therefore, manage and protect,” said
Lou Manousos, CEO, RiskIQ. “Greater than 80 percent of data breaches are
due to external threats, which means that even if you have an active
approach to identify vulnerabilities you are only addressing a portion
of the risk.”

“Every day, we are faced with newer, more advanced technologies to make
our digital lives easier; however, with that advancement comes the
development of new threats that exploit related vulnerabilities. So, if
you don’t know what your attack surface is how can you effectively
protect it?” said Craig Hinkley, CEO, WhiteHat Security. “WhiteHat has
the reconnaissance to help businesses implement a sophisticated
examination of digital assets, and now we are partnering with RiskIQ to
make that evaluation even faster, automated and complete.”
