Cavelo announced the release of digital asset discovery, tracking, data access, vulnerability and risk reporting enhancements to help businesses discover sensitive data, minimize data exposure and support attack surface management initiatives.
IT and security teams use a combination of processes and technologies to track digital assets (including hardware, software, cloud and sensitive data), and understand their business’s internal and external attack surface. However, legacy and disparate technologies can create data silos that limit visibility to the sensitive data a business has. Orphaned or unclassified data can result in regulatory non-compliance and cyber risks like data exfiltration and ransomware attacks.
“A growing reliance on connected and remote systems introduces a limitless attack surface,” said James Mignacca, CEO at Cavelo. “Many IT and security teams rely on traditional vulnerability assessments to mitigate risk. Those results capture a point in time that quickly expires and doesn’t give administrators an accurate picture of the business’s assets and sensitive data risk. Without real-time visibility to their growing inventory of digital assets and the sensitive data they contain, teams can’t confidently assess and address the organization’s overall attack surface.”
