Attack Surface Validation 

Enhance security visibility across your attack surface and uncover hidden risks.

Security Visibility Across Your Attack Surface. Uncover Hidden Risks.

In order to secure your organization against the latest cyber threats, it’s imperative to have a clear and up-to-date view of the internal and external assets you need to protect.

Picus Attack Surface Validation (ASV) provides a way to shift from asset inventory to risk-based visualization and prioritization of assets and vulnerabilities for effective threat exposure management across environments.

Overcome the Challenges of Cyber Asset and Attack Surface Management

Relying on single, disparate sources of information to build a complete picture of your organization’s IT asset inventory can be dangerous. Due to the complexity of today’s environments, pace of digital transformation and shadow IT, assets inside your networks can easily go unaccounted for and be inadvertently exposed to attackers.

By aggregating and normalizing asset data from a diverse range of sources and then presenting it via a single pane of glass for analysis, ASV supplies the insights you need to manage cyber risks more effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

The term ‘attack surface’ is typically used to describe the number of ‘points’ on the boundary of a system and/or environment that attackers could exploit to breach or impact an organization. Such points could include internet-facing assets such as websites, applications, cloud workloads, and source code fragments. An organization’s ‘internal attack surface’ describes assets such as users, hosts, systems and applications that exist inside networks.

Attack surface management describes the continuous process of discovering, classifying and assessing the security of all of an organization's internal and external assets

Attack surface management is essential in security operations because, in order to protect organizations effectively, security teams must have a clear understanding of the assets they must defend. Continuous IT and security changes mean an organization’s attack surface changes daily and it is imperative that security teams keep pace to respond to risks quickly. 


Internal and external attack surface management helps IT and security teams maintain visibility of the assets they must defend and ensures they can make data-driven decisions to prioritize their protection and manage risks effectively.

Picus Attack Surface Validation is a Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) tool that integrates with a wide range of data sources to provide internal and external asset visibility.

To support external asset management, Picus ASV can integrate with External Attack Surface Management (EASM) tools.
