Mastering Attack Surface Management

In an increasingly interconnected world, your organization's cybersecurity defenses are only as strong as their weakest link. Discover how Attack Surface Management can be your shield against modern threats, ensuring your digital realm remains safe and secure.

In the fast-paced digital landscape of today, where cyber threats are constantly evolving, it's imperative for organizations to fortify their cybersecurity defenses. One of the key pillars of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy is Attack Surface Management. These are the main benefits:

  1. Visibility

  2. Risk Reduction

  3. Threat Prevention

  4. Compliance

  5. Cost-Efficiency

  6. Incident Response


Attack surface management provides organizations with a clear view of their digital landscape. It encompasses not just external systems and applications but also internal assets and configurations. This visibility is essential for understanding where vulnerabilities exist and how attackers might exploit them.

Risk Reduction

By actively identifying and assessing their attack surface, organizations can proactively reduce their exposure to cyber threats. This includes eliminating unnecessary assets or services, promptly patching vulnerabilities, and implementing robust security controls.

Threat Prevention

Understanding your attack surface enables you to stay one step ahead of cybercriminals. By identifying and addressing vulnerabilities before attackers can exploit them, you significantly reduce the likelihood of successful cyberattacks.


Many industry regulations and cybersecurity frameworks mandate the active management of the attack surface as a core security practice. Compliance with these standards is not just best practice; it's also crucial for legal and regulatory reasons.


Attack surface management can lead to cost savings by helping organizations allocate their cybersecurity resources more effectively. It allows them to focus their efforts on protecting their most critical assets while minimizing unnecessary security expenditures.

Incident Response

In the unfortunate event of a security incident, a well-managed attack surface equips organizations to respond effectively and mitigate the impact. When you know your digital landscape inside out, you can swiftly identify and address the breach.

Endpoint compliance begins with network visibility

N-able EDR offers a powerful solution that enhances the concept of Attack Surface Management. Powered by SentinelOne Singularity RANGER®, this feature equips technicians with the tools to easily discover vulnerable devices that could potentially jeopardize their customers' networks. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and IT professionals can now take a proactive approach by categorizing, documenting, and auditing risky assets. This capability allows them to not only reduce the attack surface but also ensure compliance with regulatory standards. What makes this even more compelling is the seamless integration of this advanced feature within the N-able EDR agent, simplifying deployment and management with no need for additional agents, hardware, or network modifications. It's a powerful addition to any organization's cybersecurity toolkit.

It comes loaded with benefits that help identify blind spots and reduce the attack surface:

  • Global network visibility - no IoT blindspots

  • Enhanced network control

  • Dynamic device inventory

  • Unique device fingerprinting

  • Minimal deployment effort

  • Built for MSP Management

In conclusion, effective attack surface management is not just a good practice; it's a fundamental component of a robust cybersecurity strategy. It enhances security, reduces risk, ensures compliance with industry standards, and ultimately helps organizations stay ahead in the ongoing battle against cyber threats.

N-able EDR (powered by SentinelOne) can help you unlock full network visibility, including BYOD and IoT devices, with less hassle. Identify connected endpoints and block unauthorized devices you never knew were there.
