Adversarial Threat Assessment

Adversarial Threat Assessment — see what the bad actors see.

As cyberattacks become more sophisticated and numerous, existing threat and vulnerability management efforts often fall short by failing to identify the most likely paths an attacker would exploit to gain access to your network and sensitive data. But BPM’s adversarial threat assessment can help you identify the exposures, threats and attack paths a bad actor is most likely to exploit to gain access to your networks, systems and data.

Know which alerts matter most.

As alerts proliferate, traditional “whack-a-mole” methods to ferret out real cyber threats — scan, patch and repeat — no longer remain viable in reducing the likelihood of a cyber incident. What’s needed — in business, government and other organizations — is a way to identify the exposures and threats that an adversary will most likely exploit.

Adversarial threat assessments, powered by our partners at Reveald, provide a way to focus on the high-risk attack paths, reduce the attack surface area and apply resources where the risk is greatest.

The critical intelligence you need to know about your attack surface and exposure — you’ll see what the attackers see.

Context – Attacks continue to increase, with more threats than ever, but most lack context that could aid in determining risky behavior or material risk to the information environment.

Attack paths – While point products proliferate, few are well integrated, hampering the ability to identify the most likely path an attacker will take. Often, different systems produce conflicting data, which is frustrating to analyze.

Prioritization – Thousands of vulnerabilities may be disclosed yearly, yet organizations struggle to identify the risk of each. Organizations frequently default to a “data-centric” risk quantification model that may not align with an adversary’s likely attack path.

Knowledgeable risk assessments – In the absence of data, qualitative arguments win out over quantitative risk assessments, which tend to skew toward the loudest voice and may not align with the highest risk, thus tainting outcomes.

How BPM’s Adversarial Threat Management benefits your business.

  • Translates technical data to business risk – Measuring what is or could be exposed, optimizing what is exploitable and prioritizing actions based on organizational impact (i.e., attacker value).
  • Heightens risk awareness – Allowing instant access to incoming data, with its context and awareness aggregated meaningfully, and uniquely singling out devices and identities across multiple platforms.
  • Makes exposure management actionable – Creating recommendations based on likely attack paths, analyzing and measuring change through continuous exposure management, shrinking attack surface area, and reducing high-risk attack paths.

BPM creates value with the Reveald Epiphany Intelligence Platform, guarding your data against ongoing threats, step by step.

Reveald is our technology enablement alliance partner, which brings a level of automation to threat management that few others can do. This cutting-edge technology allows us to be extraordinarily efficient, cost-effective, and thorough.

Context – Ingest data about devices, identities, and networks from your existing security tools with little or no further investment.

Impact – Identify exploitable attack paths and evaluate potential outcomes, enabling you to focus on the highest risk exposure efficiently and expediently.

Remediation – Focus your valuable resources on the risks with the greatest chance of causing a material impact on your systems.
