MODERN PROTECTION FOR YOUR
MODERN ATTACK SURFACE

For businesses that need to keep up with today’s increasingly sophisticated and aggressive cyber attacks, our Continuous Attack Surface Testing (CAST) service augments your security program by mapping and testing your entire external perimeter, even as it changes – so you can always stay ahead of the bad guys.

INTRODUCING
CAST

Continuous Attack Surface Testing (CAST) is a managed service that combines a next-generation attack platform with expert-driven penetration tests to deliver unprecedented visibility into your security posture.

Built from the ground up, the CAST platform generates and maintains a real-time map of your attack surface and leverages advanced automation to continuously identify potential weaknesses on your perimeter. Our expert operators then leverage the data from the platform to perform continuous penetration tests and deliver fully validated results on the vulnerabilities that pose a threat to your business.

SECURITY TESTING
AT SCALE

Combining technology and human expertise, CAST amplifies your security program by boosting signal and reducing the noise to deliver the results with the biggest impact to your organization.

ATTACK SURFACE
VISIBILITY

Leveraging a domain-centric approach to attack surface discovery, the CAST platform uncovers your digital footprint and operationalizes that attack surface data to provide a real-time, attacker’s view of your external perimeter – including the assets you don’t know about.

HIGH SIGNAL,
LOW NOISE

Unlike traditional scanning tools that produce unverified, low-confidence results, CAST identifies and exploits sophisticated vulnerabilities, eliminates false positives, and confirms true negatives – so you can focus your security efforts on the high-risk and critical issues that pose real threats to your business.

BROADER SCOPE,
DEEPER TESTING

CAST assesses more sophisticated vulnerabilities in a greater number of categories than other solutions in the market. Our advanced automation codifies and analyzes complex attack paths, then passes Indicators of Vulnerabilities (IoV) to skilled operators who validate and perform deeper testing that matches (and surpasses) the speed and persistence of real-world attackers.

Maintaining visibility across an organization’s digital footprint is becoming increasingly difficult in the rapidly changing digital world. The combination of machine learning and a managed services approach, enables companies such as Bishop Fox to perform attack surface analysis and continuous offensive security testing. These capabilities are crucial to threat identification and mitigation and help to reduce organizations’ exposure to increasingly sophisticated attacks.

USE
CASES

Meaningful results, real business impact. CAST helps your security team solve some of their greatest challenges. 

AMPLIFY YOUR OFFENSIVE
SECURITY PROGRAM

Continuously deploying new technology and delivering “Fast IT” without agile security can exponentially increase your business risk. But existing tools are not able to keep up with the exploit-focused nature of sophisticated attackers. Instead these vulnerability scanning solutions produce noisy, low-confidence results that that require time-intensive reviews and tie up valuable resources. CAST, on the other hand, amplifies your vulnerability management program by reducing the noise and focusing your teams on the true positives they care about, the true negatives they want to know about, and the false positives they can avoid.

UNDERSTAND AND SECURE
YOUR CLOUD ENVIRONMENT

Dynamic services and changing application environments require solutions that continuously adapt and respond. The CAST platform establishes a direct connection with cloud environments (e.g., AWS, Azure, GCP, OCI) to obtain real-time updates to DNS changes and exposed services and provide visibility into fingerprints, screenshots, and vulnerability indicators. This inside-out and outside-in approach helps identify shadow IT (e.g., rogue cloud accounts) and delivers comprehensive coverage of your cloud environments.

ASSESS THIRD
PARTIES AND M&A

As an independent testing organization, Bishop Fox is qualified to perform in-depth and collaborative security testing against third parties, including cloud service providers and potential acquisition targets. Leveraging our CAST capabilities, we are able to rapidly identify issues (at scale) during integration and pinpoint critical risks that require patching, updating, or other mitigation, giving you a stronger understanding of third-party security postures as well as full visibility into your new, expanded environment.
