Security teams are dealing with the increased complexity of multiple cloud vendors, a shifting workforce, supply chain vendors, third-party partners, and security flaws inherited through M&A. Attack Surface Management thus becomes increasingly important. Discovering security risks and quickly mitigating them is a core pillar of security, and it's a race that defenders must win because attackers are constantly searching for vulnerable targets.
