How can you secure what you don’t know you have? When it comes to security, visibility is key. In fact, Gartner predicted that around 30% of successful attacks this year would be against shadow IT.

It seems like there is a consensus that attack surface discovery and management should be a top priority, but frankly, it’s getting harder. In the newly published ESG research report, Attack Surface and Vulnerability Management Assessment, ESG interviewed and surveyed 200+ CISOs, two-thirds of which cited that attack surface management is more difficult than it was two years ago.

So, your job is getting harder… great. Based off the report findings, we compiled four common mistakes to avoid, which we hope will make your attack surface management journey a little bit easier.
