Detectify, the leading External Attack Surface Management platform powered by elite ethical hackers, today announced enhancements to its platform that can significantly help to elevate an organization’s visibility into its attack surface. Many organizations need help gaining visibility into the IP addresses across their whole environment. Detectify's new capabilities enable organizations to uncover unauthorized assets and ensure regulatory compliance.
The attack surface has grown exponentially, not least in how decentralized organizations have become. Over 10% of Detectify customers are hosting data across three continents, illustrating how their products and services are more global than ever. Detectify also notes that 30% of their customer base is leveraging more than 5 service providers, which reflects the growing trend in vulnerabilities as a result of human errors, like server misconfigurations. Moreover, organizations are quickly expanding their digital footprint, with 73% of Detectify customers using IPv6 addresses.
With the introduction of the new IP Addresses view, Detectify users gain seamless access to a comprehensive list of all IPs associated with their domains, accompanied by valuable insights, including hosting provider details, geographical locations, and Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs). This update is further complemented by interactive charts, enabling users to detect outlier countries or providers, and streamlining the process of identifying potential security concerns.
"It's not uncommon for our customers to encounter instances where unauthorized geolocations are used to spin up new machines or witness sudden spikes in hosting activities from approved countries,” said Danwei Tran Luciani, Interim VP of Product at Detectify. “These anomalies can expose organizations to risk, particularly when traditional automated detection methods fall short. Our new IP Addresses view empowers security teams to proactively address these challenges, strengthening their overall cybersecurity posture."
Detectify's new IP Addresses view provides security teams with tangible benefits to navigate complex attack surfaces, such as:
Uncovering unauthorized assets: For organizations with large attack surfaces, this capability allows users to identify unauthorized assets hosted by unapproved vendors. By instantly detecting an asset being hosted by a non-approved provider, security teams can take swift action and mitigate potential threats.
Ensuring regulatory compliance: For businesses operating in highly regulated environments where compliance is paramount, the new view is critical in determining the hosting locations of specific customer data. This enhanced visibility ensures adherence to regulatory requirements and fortifies data privacy measures.
The new IP Addresses view is now available to all Detectify customers, reinforcing the company's commitment to empowering security teams with cutting-edge solutions to safeguard organizations’ ever-evolving attack surfaces. For more information visit www.detectify.com
Detectify sets the standard for External Attack Surface Management (EASM), providing 99.7% accurate vulnerability assessments. Product security and AppSec teams trust Detectify to expose exactly how attackers will exploit their Internet-facing applications. The Detectify platform automates continuous real-world, payload-based attacks crowdsourced through its global community of elite ethical hackers, exposing critical weaknesses before it’s too late.

Legit Security, a cyber security company with an enterprise Application Security Posture Management platform that secures application delivery and protects an organization's software supply chain from attack, today announced a partnership with CrowdStrike, a global leader in cloud-delivered protection of endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data protection. With this partnership, Legit Security integrates with the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform to provide extended application security, auto-discovery, and vulnerability management. Leveraging the two solutions, customers can automatically trace cloud application vulnerabilities back to their code origin and more rapidly prioritize and remediate security issues leveraging deep application context.
With the need for frequent software releases, DevOps and modern CI/CD pipelines have left security teams struggling to secure their cloud applications in the face of increasing threats. Within these constantly changing development environments, legacy security approaches fall short with high levels of noise and alerts, making it difficult to quickly prioritize cloud application vulnerabilities and identify the root cause. Compounding the challenge, organizations lack real-time application security posture management across their CI/CD pipelines and pre-production development environments as software supply chain attacks continue to grow dramatically.
With Legit Security's integration with the Crowdstrike Falcon® platform, security teams can quickly see where vulnerabilities discovered in production applications originated, and where vulnerabilities discovered in code get deployed. Legit Security ingests security data across cloud workloads from the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to identify and trace the source of vulnerabilities and accelerate triage and prioritization of issues based on context and severity.
"Cloud application security is a top priority, however enterprises need to balance security with an ability to improve productivity and do more with less," said Roni Fuchs, CEO and co-founder, Legit Security. "Instantly tracing cloud application security vulnerabilities back to their source with full context regarding the application, its software supply chain, and code origination can dramatically improve remediation time and productivity for both security and development teams. Now listed in the CrowdStrike Store, Legit Security's offering allows customers to easily find information on our integration to ultimately gain dramatic improvements in risk scoring, security issue classification and prioritization, and get the most out of their valuable security resources."
