Why Your Customers Need Attack Surface Management

Attack surface management (ASM) helps your customers build a comprehensive inventory of all their internet assets – to ensure they have not been misconfigured to prevent unauthorised access. Gartner recommends that security and risk management leaders should “anticipate the continuous expansion of the enterprise attack surface, and increase investment in processes and tools for identity threat detection and remediation and digital supply chain integrity.” With 60% of knowledge workers working remotely, organisations must acknowledge the risks associated with modern work practices.

Censys Data & Search Use Cases

Enhanced Threat Intelligence

Improves threat intelligence operations, enabling better and more accurate pivots off of known IoCs and learning when infrastructure was weaponised by the adversary through historical data lookup.

Vulnerability Research

Identifies specific software vulnerabilities on assets connected to the internet like SolarWinds or Microsoft Exchange, and gain a global perspective of potential impact.

OSINT for Red and Blue Teams

Conducts reconnaissance in red teaming exercises or leverage Censys Data as a blue teamer to find hosts running services exposed to the Internet, even services running on non-standard ports.

Case Studies


Swiss Life provides financial security for individuals and corporations. As the organisation is divided into several divisions, it faced challenges with visibility into the governance and compliance issues its security teams were finding.

Immediately after Censys’ initial internet-wide scan, Swiss Life’s security leaders were able to see their internet assets and prioritised risks all in one place within its dashboard. This helped Swiss Life remain efficient and compliant.

Real Estate

A public real estate company with over 50,000 employees, a lean security team and multiple subsidiaries were struggling to manage and patch its internet assets.

Censys’ cloud asset discovery algorithm identified 18 storage buckets that were unknowingly leaking public data and more than 600 cloud assets outside of monitored accounts. It also revealed 60 new risks on previously unknown assets, including deprecated protocols, protocol misconfigurations, and vulnerable end-of-life software.
