IBM Security® Randori Recon is an attack surface management SaaS that monitors internal and external attack surfaces for unexpected changes, blind spots, misconfigurations, and process failures. It is part of the IBM Security portfolio.

Uncover your attack surface risks, before attackers do

Enterprise attack surface continues to expand with digital transformation. While organizations have successfully fixed known vulnerabilities on managed organizational assets, the rapid adoption of hybrid cloud models and an increasingly remote workforce have made it nearly impossible for security teams to manage an expanding attack surface. Cyber risks get further compounded when organizations inherit an unknown attack surface during mergers and acquisitions (M&A). To know where adversaries will strike, you must see your attack surface as they do.

IBM Security Randori Recon, an external attack surface management SaaS, provides continuous asset discovery and risk prioritization from an attacker’s perspective. This cloud-native offering helps your SecOps team continuously monitor your attack surface to discover assets exposed to attackers and prioritize them based on adversarial temptation. Additionally, with bidirectional integrations that work seamlessly with your existing security stack, it helps improve your overall cybersecurity posture.

Discovery Helps identify your external and internal organizational exposures, including IPv6 assets, in a high-fidelity and low-impact manner while reducing false positives to keep your signal-to-noise ratio under control.

Discovery path Helps act on newly identified assets without additional research by showing how a particular asset was located on the perimeter.

Remediation guidance Helps improve your cyber resilience by implementing remediation best practices across your infrastructure with adversarial insights.

Vulnerability validation Confirm whether common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVE) exist on your external attack surface and are exploitable.

Security Testing Provides dynamic control validation, on-device MITRE ATT&CK testing, and vulnerability exploitation to enable continuous assessment of your organization's defenses against real-world internal or external threats.
