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.
Aaron Sherrill, Senior Analyst for 451 Research, describes how our Continuous Attack Surface Testing service is a must-have capability to minimize vulnerabilities and close security gaps.Read Analyst Report
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.
Stay Ahead of Emerging Threats
New threats and vulnerabilities emerge on a daily basis. With ever-expanding attack surfaces to protect, security teams need a solution that keeps up with sophisticated attackers. CAST continuously monitors emerging threats and provides actionable remediation on the weaknesses that pose a risk to your business.
Extend Your Security Team
A shortage of talent, limited budgets, and noisy scanners make staying ahead of risks a challenge for many security teams. CAST Operators act as an extension of your security team, gaining a deep understanding of your attack surface, performing continuous monitoring and testing, and surfacing only the issues that you care most about.
Reduce Your Attack Surface
Security teams can’t protect what they don’t know. Through product releases, mergers,acquisitions, and expanding cloud infrastructures, your attack surface is continuously changing. By using a domain-centric approach to attack surface discovery, CAST continuously monitors your perimeter and operators identify ways to reduce your number of attack vectors.

HELPED ZOOM SECURE THEIR EXPANDING ATTACK SURFACE
Bishop Fox partnered with Zoom in May 2020 to map their attack surface, which was growing rapidly not just in size, but in complexity, so that we could find any unknown assets and locate security risks for the company. With CAST, Zoom was able to rely on Bishop Fox security experts to work through the potential security issues that existed on their 500K+ targets and create proof-of-concept exploits to prioritize which risks required immediate attention.
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.
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.
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.
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.

AMPLIFY YOUR OFFENSIVE
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.
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.
