Newly Identified Category Highlights the Importance to “Solve Persistent Asset Visibility and Vulnerability Challenges”
Sevco Security, a leading cloud-native security asset intelligence platform provider, today announced its inclusion as a Sample Vendor for Cybersecurity Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Network Security, 20211 and Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2021.2
Gartner defines CAASM as “an emerging technology focused on enabling security teams to solve persistent asset visibility and vulnerability challenges.” The Gartner analysts highlight that “CAASM expands beyond the limited scope of products that focus on a subset of assets such as endpoints, servers, devices or applications. By consolidating into a single repository, users can query to find gaps in coverage for external attack surface management (EASM) and endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools.” CAASM solutions will enable organizations to aggregate these disparate asset inventories to strengthen the foundation of their security programs.
“We have long believed that the next big thing in cybersecurity will be a renaissance in the basic blocking and tackling of IT practices,” said Greg Fitzgerald, chief experience officer and co-founder of Sevco Security. “We’re delighted that Gartner is now aligned by creating this new CAASM category of solutions that will serve as the foundation of every security framework. We’ve seen it coming, which shaped our vision for the Sevco Unified Inventory that we delivered to the market earlier this year.”
Sevco’s Asset Intelligence platform delivers comprehensive unified inventory through a beautiful visual interface that highlights the complex state of an organization’s assets in one simple view. The result is an unparalleled, and previously unavailable, understanding of an enterprise’s devices and their actual configuration. It allows companies to identify areas where actual configuration deviates from expected configuration, providing checks and balances against processes and technology that often fails.
Sevco takes this a step further by uniquely providing asset telemetry that generates change events for every asset inventory and asset attribute change. This provides IT and security organizations detailed records of key attributes, critical to investigations and traceability for global inventory changes. All of this is delivered through a cloud-native SaaS platform that makes it easy to evaluate and effortless to scale.
