External Attack Surface Management

Gain visibility on the external attack surface and proactively remediate digital risk.

Flare generates a real-time view of your external exposure — enabling analysts to work faster and more effectively by eliminating noise and allowing security professionals to focus on high-risk publicly facing assets. Equip your team with a proactive platform to prevent incidents and remediate external threats.

As attack surfaces increase, visibility decreases.

As organizations use more digital tools and services, their external attack surface and the number of attack vectors that are available to malicious actors increase.

This makes the possibility of an exploitation of attack vectors from misconfigured cloud servers, leaked credentials and external source code repositories more likely. Many cybersecurity analysts address these threats reactively, not proactively, and without a complete understanding of the organization’s attack surface.

Automate your external attack surface management and increase visibility.

As the attack surface expands, cybersecurity analysts need to find new solutions that proactively prevent cybersecurity attacks. Currently organizations monitor multiple channels manually using a variety of tools and still encounter coverage issues.

Why do you need automated external attack surface management?


Cybersecurity analysts face difficulties when trying to manually map their organization’s attack surface especially when it comes to the external attack surface. The attack vectors found in the external attack surface are in most cases accidental or go “under the radar”. An example of this would be Shadow IT related risk that an analyst would not account for due to the nature of how the solution is used in the organization.

Too Many
Cybersecurity Tools

If organization’s do monitor the external attack surface, they likely monitor multiple channels using a variety of tools. This results in an ad-hoc and disorganized approach that can consume extensive amounts of time and resources, with limited results to show for it. Internally-built cybersecurity tools can cause problems in the long run — requiring constant employee maintenance — not to mention the risk of the lone developer with the know-how leaving the company.

Noisy Cyber
Threat Data

Cybersecurity analysts that are monitoring their organization’s attack surface still face an extremely noisy dataset. The datasets showcase general intelligence and do not provide easy to understand actionable intelligence that is prioritized by cyber risk level.

Organizations need a complete attack surface mapping solution that unifies external monitoring capabilities behind a single pane of glass.

External attack surface reduction with Flare

Flare provides external attack surface management that enables analysts to work faster and more effectively by eliminating noise and allowing security professionals to focus on high-risk publicly facing assets.

Monitor Github for Source Code and Secrets leakage

Many organizations focus their efforts around protecting sensitive data and meeting compliance requirements. However, a source code leak can just as easily compromise an organization. Flare seamlessly enables you to easily monitor online code repositories for accidentally leaked information.

Detect Data Leakage due to Human Error

Software development teams are increasingly a mix of full-time employees and contractors. While this can boost productivity, it can also lead to mistakes and secrets being committed to production environments. Attackers often perform routine checks on Github to identify secrets that could be used in cyberattacks. Flare automatically monitors for secrets and alerts your security team to an accidental commit.

Identify Misconfigured Servers

Cloud permissions can be easily misconfigured. One improperly configured S3 bucket can leak sensitive employee data, technical data, or customer information to the wider web. Flare enables you to receive real-time notification of S3 storage and other cloud data that could put your company at risk.

Monitor Anonymous Sharing websites

Password dumps, sensitive technical data, and even PII are regularly posted on Pastebin and other anonymous sharing sites (bin sites). Flare enables you to effortlessly monitor for mentions of your company or email domain.
