Eliminating weaknesses from the attacker's point of view

Identify attack Paths from internet-exposed assets

Cybercriminals are constantly looking for small breaches and holes in IT systems and are clever in their trickery. In response, companies have had no choice but to rely on their own expertise and a huge amount of time to respond to inspections. It is clear that this has its limitations.
CyCognito finds a company's assets exposed on the internet, identifies the methods used by cyber criminals and the likely intrusion routes they will target, and provides countermeasures.

Understanding Your IT systems exposure

Utilize nation-level reconnaissance capabilities to understand the state of their IT ecosystem as it is exposed on the internet

Finding exploitable weaknesses

Attackers’ methods are used to find security weaknesses that are likely to be exploited

Eliminate maximum risk pathways

Rank security weaknesses based on business impact. Strengthens the response to inadequate countermeasures and high-risk pathways

CyCognito's unique technology

CyCognito’s mission is to eliminate shadow risks worldwide. It helps organisations identify and eliminate critical security risks in their IT ecosystem – the shadow risks that attackers look for and target.

Reconnaissance process

Created a platform that automatically maps an organisation’s attack surface (potential attack surface risk) based on reconnaissance processes, methodologies and techniques used by highly skilled attackers CyCognito owns and manages the world’s largest botnet of attacker-exposed data from 3.5 billion servers and devices deployed worldwide. (It owns and manages the world’s largest botnet, which collects (petabytes of data). While typical port scanners scan open ports and banners, CyCognito collects dozens of fingerprints for each asset: web applications, links, references, URL patterns, headers, banners, certificates, deployed software, and department and Unique keywords similar to the names of subsidiaries can be detected.

Mapping the entire IT ecosystem

The collected fingerprints are used for each company under investigation to automatically calculate and present a mathematical graph of attack surfaces. Starting with a single company, the system quickly finds subsidiaries, acquired companies and partner-specific assets that are strongly related to the company. content and context of each asset. Most attractive to attackers = It is important to make your company’s risks visible and correctly understood.

Identifies the most targeted pathways for attackers

The CyCognito platform focuses on simulating and assessing attacks from the entire attack surface to find exploitable assets that can be used to gain access to other critical assets in the network. Traditional vulnerability scanners ignore the actual attack vector and essentially only detect known CVEs in the asset. In addition, the scope of manual penetration testing is less than 1% of an organisation’s attack surface, which is clearly too narrow.

Assessment from the attacker’s point of view

Classify the likelihood of an asset being detected using the attacker’s process. Based on the business context, these assets are then assessed for their ‘attractiveness level’ from the attacker’s perspective. For example, a mainframe or source code management system is far more interesting to an attacker than a 10-year-old and data-free Apache server, and CyCognito’s unique analysis reduces the number of thousands of critical attack vectors displayed by legacy scanners to 5 or The critical attack vectors prioritised by the CyCognito platform typically include exposures that other solutions do not identify.

Actionable modification guidance.

Each identified issue is provided with prioritised, implementable remediation guidance. The security team not only understands the risks, but also the overall picture of remediation implementation in advance.
