SAN FRANCISCO, July 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- , the global leader in digital threat management, today released a report mining the company’s massive repository of internet data. The report maps the global internet attack surface over a two-week period, and in the process, reveals the true extent of the modern corporate attack surface.
The report, ‘The Anatomy of an Attack Surface: Five Ways Hackers are Cashing In’ is a data-driven exploration of five different approaches hackers take to target businesses via the internet. They capitalize on the weakening of the corporate perimeter due to customer and partner interactions moving online. The report is based on data collected by RiskIQ’s web-crawling infrastructure, which each day executes and analyzes more than two billion HTTP requests, takes in terabytes of passive DNS data, collects millions of SSL Certificates, and monitors millions of mobile apps. When viewed as a whole, this data gives a new perspective of the sheer number of digital assets exposed to the internet, any of which could become a target for hackers.
“Today, organizations are responsible for defending their network all the way to the edges of the internet,” said Lou Manousos, RiskIQ CEO. “Bringing the massive scope of an organization's attack surface into focus helps frame the challenges faced by organizations in keeping their employees, customers, and brand safe.”
By showing what their organization looks like from an attacker’s perspective—a collection of digital assets that are discoverable by hackers—the report illustrates that today’s security teams are not only responsible for their own network, but also everything that targets their brand and assets on the open internet. When brands understand what they look like from the outside-in, they can begin developing a digital threat management program that allows them to discover everything associated with their organization on the internet, both legitimate and malicious.
RiskIQ is the leader in digital threat management, providing the most comprehensive discovery, intelligence and mitigation of threats associated with an organization’s digital presence. With more than 75 percent of attacks originating outside the firewall, RiskIQ allows enterprises to gain unified insight and control over web, social and mobile exposures.

Based in San Francisco, the company is backed by Summit Partners, Battery Ventures, Georgian Partners and MassMutual Ventures. Visit or . Try RiskIQ Community Edition for free by visiting
