IBM Security® Randori combines external attack surface management with continuous automated red teaming to serve  as the foundation for an effective continuous threat exposure management (CTEM) program.

Exposure extends beyond vulnerabilities alone. Digital transformation is expanding enterprise attack surfaces at an exponential rate, resulting in an operationally infeasible number of vulnerabilities for security teams to manage. Reducing your security risk requires moving from the reactive find and fix to a proactive approach to clarify your cyber risk and better prioritize your risk mitigation efforts to build greater resilience over time.

Gartner® describes CTEM as a "program that surfaces and actively prioritizes whatever most threatens your business".1

By implementing a CTEM program with IBM Security Randori, you can help your security teams proactively assess and manage your organization's exposure to various cyber threats and vulnerabilities on an ongoing basis. It helps you understand your unique threat landscape and implement remediation measures to mitigate and minimize the risks that are most relevant to your security posture instead of trying to find and patch every vulnerability, even if it has a minimal impact on your business.

What you can do
Identify risks beyond vulnerabilities Broaden your scope of risk identification to include misconfigurations, such as exposed login pages that leverage default credentials and outdated certificates. IBM Security® Randori Recon can help you reduce the number of potential entry points for attackers by prioritizing risks based on impact, likelihood, and relevance to your business while showing you the path to the vulnerable asset on your perimeter.

Uplevel your existing vulnerability management solution Randori Recon helps reduce the likelihood of an external data breach by ensuring previously unmanaged assets can be actively monitored and managed. With risk-based prioritization, it helps you create a more efficient and effective vulnerability management program at scale by providing administrators with adversarial context so they can prioritize patching of the most impactful threats first.

Authorize continuous assessments Validate that your implemented mitigations are working as expected with continuous  automated red teaming at scale with IBM Security® Randori Attack Targeted. Scope assets based on risk profile to drive security testing of the areas of your business that carry the largest impact. Through continuous runbooks and detailed after action reports, your organization can build a more resilient security posture.
While we had always invested in security, we wanted to ensure that our approach to asset and vulnerability management was able to evolve to address today's cloud and dynamic environments. Getting and maintaining an external assessment of any attack surface is a critical first step in developing a defensive strategy. IBM Security Randori made that possible.
