Cybersecurity company ConnectSecure is adding deep attack surface scanning and the Exploit Prediction Scoring System (EPSS) to its platform for managed service providers (MSPs) that protect small and midsize businesses. The new capabilities will be fully integrated into the ConnectSecure platform, giving MSPs complete visibility into network, device, and application weaknesses that can be exploited by bad actors.
MSPs are under mounting pressure in this environment, and ConnectSecure’s new features will increase their capabilities and efficiencies, according to the company. The addition of EPSS scoring helps MSPs prioritize by estimating the probability that a software vulnerability will be exploited in the wild. Additionally, the new attack surface scan identifies exposed web interfaces, giving MSPs greater visibility into attack vectors.
According to ConnectSecure CEO Peter Bellini, the platform delivers everything an MSP needs to identify, report on, and remediate vulnerabilities. “With the addition of attack surface scanning, ConnectSecure gives MSPs a 360-degree view from the inside out and the outside in,” he said in a press statement. “We’re identifying potential exploitable entry points and telling MSPs how to harden that attack surface to prevent a breach.”
Attack surface scanning will launch in June as part of the ConnectSecure platform with no pricing change.
Specifically, ConnectSecure’s attack surface scanner will scan and identify:
- Open ports
- Targeted IP addresses
- Compromised emails
- Weak or compromised usernames
- Suspicious subdomains
EPSS provides a dynamic, real-time score that rates software vulnerabilities based on real-world activity to determine the probability they will be exploited. ConnectSecure uses EPSS metrics to provide guidance on the urgency of the threat. The ConnectSecure platform also provides remediations, so a prioritized list can be given to the IT team with details on how to address the issues.
ConnectSecure also announced it earned SOC2 Type 2 and General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) certifications.
ConnectSecure will demonstrate its cybersecurity platform at IT Nation Secure (Booth #420) at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando June 5-7, and Pax8 Beyond (Booth #515) at the Gaylord Rockies Convention Center in Denver June 11-13.
