How BitSight For SPM Fills The Security Visibility Gaps

Your Digital Footprint Is Expanding

Your digital footprint is expanding. From on-premise hardware to cloud storage instances, tightly managed endpoints and far-flung remote offices, there’s a lot to keep track of and keep secure.

Fortunately you’ve deployed a pretty comprehensive security tech stack to keep a lid on things. Your firewall is humming along keeping the bad guys out, your endpoints are under management, and your SIEM is logging everything that happens.

But sometimes expectations don’t match up with reality, and you might not be seeing everything you need to.

end-points

Endpoints

Whether it’s a laptop, mobile phone, or IoT, there is a huge amount of data flowing through endpoints. Good thing they’re loaded up with all the latest security and endpoint monitoring tools to ensure that your users aren’t up to anything that could put the organization at risk.

Close
On Premise

On-Premise

Typically these are the most secure assets your organization has. Operating behind a Firewall and other security protocols, only those with the right credentials have access to them — ensuring the valuable data they hold is well defended.

Close
bitsight-context

SIEMs

Your trusted source of truth. It’s logging everything that happens in your network, putting all of the information you need at your fingertips. Any suspicious activity or event will be logged, flagged, and followed up on before anything bad can happen.

Close
cloud

Cloud

Moving to the cloud can help your business be more agile, scalable, and efficient. Ideally, you have an inventory of each asset and it’s configuration status so data can be properly secured.

Subsidiaries and geos

Subsidiaries and Geos

Offices around the globe, recent M&A activity, new subsidiaries. Doesn’t matter — you’ve got this. Everyone is using the same tools and following the same policies, so what risk could those other parts of the organization pose?

Close
digital footprint

Digital Footprint

Your digital footprint is neat and tidy. Every domain, URL, and IP address is accounted for. You know exactly what assets are out there, and how secure they are.

Close
remote-office

Remote Office

COVID-19 has forced up to 85% of workers in some industries to work remotely. While employees work remotely, using tools like VPN and SSO, as well as secure cloud apps, can help keep data on corporate machines secure.

Close
firewall

Firewall

The Firewall is your first and primary defense. It’s the trusty brick wall, maybe with a double alligator-filled moat, between your network and the internet. Nothing gets in or out without you saying so, ensuring all your most valuable assets are protected.

Close
bitsight-context

SIEMs

It’s logging everything that happens in your network, putting all of the information you need at your fingertips. Or almost all the information. But are you getting the vital context to understand the raw data your SIEM is feeding you? How are events truly impacting your security performance? Are you performing better or worse than the competition or other parts of the organization?

Close
endpoints

Endpoints

Let’s be honest, your users are your weakest link in the security chain. From malware to spam propagation and file sharing, there’s all kinds of stuff endpoints can get up to. The rise of BYOD has only made the problem worse, and IoT devices are often vulnerable to exploits. You need visibility into what those endpoints are sending out into the internet...and what’s coming in.

Close
on-premise

On-Premise

Yes, they sit behind the Firewall. But often on-premise assets are easy to overlook when it comes to patching, updates, and configuration. Is system maintenance fully up to date? Are you sure they aren’t open to known vulnerabilities?

Close
subsidiaries-and-geos

Subsidiaries and Geos

Regional regulatory requirements, cloud assets nobody mentioned during an acquisition, local work preferences…. other parts of your organization may be harboring quite a few digital assets that aren’t in your official inventory. Without visibility, do you even know what data is out there, and are you sure it's safe?

Close
risk-vectors

Shadow IT

Your footprint may be bigger than you know. It’s so easy to spin up a new cloud instance or web service, many of them may not be on your radar. Without full visibility, can you be sure they’re secure and not putting your organization at risk of a breach?

Close
digital-footprint

Digital Footprint

Old URLs, forgotten domains, rogue IP addresses. Your digital footprint is likely much bigger than you think, especially if you’ve been in business for a long time or do a lot of acquisitions. If you don’t know what assets you have, how can you be sure they’re not posing a security or reputational risk to the business?

Close
remote-office

Remote Office

Residential IPs account for more than 90% of all observed malware infections and compromised systems. While your employees’ machines might be secure, the networks they are working on are full of malware...and worse. Do you know the risk posed by your remote workforce?

Close
cloud

Cloud

Your business depends on the cloud. But moving to the cloud has increased your attack surface. Each cloud instance must be properly configured, managed, and monitored according to the shared responsibility model. Do you know what your attack surface looks like, and where all of your assets are? Without that visibility, can you be sure they’re properly configured and secure?

Close
bitsight

BitSight

Turns out there’s a lot you need to get eyes on. Fortunately there’s BitSight for Security Performance Management. Using entirely externally observable information, BitSight shines a light on the gaps in your security, and provides vital context to make informed decisions.

  • Get visibility into your expanding digital footprint
  • Assess your continuously evolving attack surface
  • Expose the risk posed by home office networks
  • Discover or identify malicious or suspicious internet traffic that might have been missed
  • Identify missed patches, and out-of-date software and browsers
  • Provide comparative context against competitors, subsidiaries, and more
  • Get vital external context for the data in your SIEMS
  • ...and so much more

Close
firewall

Firewall

The Firewall is your first and primary defense. In theory it should fully protect your network. But when so much of your business happens outside of the network — possibly some of which occurs without your knowledge (like shadow IT) — are you sure it’s really catching everything coming in...or going out?

Finding the gaps in your cybersecurity

While most security stacks do a pretty good job of catching most stuff, the reality is that there are critical gaps in visibility. To understand what’s going on in your ecosystem and where in your digital footprint risk is concentrated requires you to have broad visibility into things most stacks can’t give you.

Fortunately, BitSight for Security Performance Management has all the tools you need to fill the visibility gaps in your security, so you can maximize your investments, understand the true size of your digital footprint, and get visibility into your attack surface. From integrations with leading SIEMS like Splunk to give critical context to your logs, to finding the control gaps in your firewall or risky remote office networks, BitSight shines a light on the gaps in visibility. Afterall, you can’t secure what you can’t see.
