Asset Intelligence and Observability is Key: Sevco Security Debuts New Ways to Hunt Vulnerabilities and Maximize CAASM

By Alex Passett

Businesses that are able to capitalize on the power of real asset intelligence – to secure organizational, real-time, end-to-end visibility across all assets – position themselves in a far more optimal way to succeed. Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) is key, as big names like Sevco Security already know. Especially in today’s world; per a report from Accenture, 68% of high-growth organizations (in recent years, especially) have adopted work-from-anywhere models, enhancing productivity but inadvertently “hyper-expanding the workplace risk surface,” as CAASM platform Cavelo CEO James Mignacca wrote.

“CAASM enables organizations to see all assets, both internal and external, through API integrations with existing tools, query against the consolidated data, and really identify the scope of vulnerabilities and gaps in security controls in order to remediate issues,” Mignacca explained.

That’s the sweet spot; identifying and hunting vulnerabilities to seamlessly ensure real, comprehensive enterprise defenses and modern visibility.

“It’s time to go on the offensive with technology that enables organizations to identify and remedy vulnerable conditions,” said Sevco Security CEO J.J. Guy. “We have to go beyond simply depending on legacy s canners to report vulnerabilities. New ways to aggregate, de-duplicate and correlate asset data from multiple technology silos is a must.”

And so, Sevco Security has done precisely that. The cloud-native CAASM provider has announced new vulnerability-hunting capabilities so organizations can better assess vulnerabilities across different asset classes (e.g. devices, users, applications), evaluate mitigating controls to continuously handle risks, and access exposure management more directly down the road.

Unlike less proactive threat-hunting (i.e. that occurs once bad actors have already, and unfortunately, gained access to a thought-to-be-secure environment), Sevco Security creates more proactive avenues for businesses “to eliminate hidden assets’ missing security controls, or security controls that aren’t appropriately configured.” Identifying the presence of an asset within a set of IT or security tools – and whether or not that asset is actively communicating with the right platforms – Sevco Security unlocks a better detection strategy by bullseye-pinpointing vulnerabilities with more reliable context.

It's simple, really. You can’t fix what you can’t see (or what you don’t know requires fixing). Sevco Security’s CAASM solutions improve security posture more proactively. That way, businesses don’t fall into a cyber threat “chasm” of their own.
