Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Security Operations, 2021

Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) is on the rise. Learn why this emerging technology should be on your team's radar.

Full visibility of all assets to understand the entire attack surface is the #1 driver for CAASM

Security and risk management professionals need to expand beyond the traditional scope of assets. Furthermore, the data to properly evaluate an organization's risk model and remediate security gaps often resides in siloed systems. 

CAASM unifies the data into a single view usable by multiple teams to answer the most basic (and complex) questions of their environment.


Download the Gartner Hype Cycle for Security Operations and learn:

  • How security and risk management professionals benefit from CAASM
  • What is driving the growth of CAASM
  • How CAASM complements other technology like SIEM, SOAR, XDR, vulnerability management and more.

Cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM) is an emerging technology focused on enabling security teams to solve persistent asset visibility and vulnerability challenges. It enables organizations to see all assets (both internal and external) through API integrations with existing tools, query against the consolidated data, identify the scope of vulnerabilities and gaps in security controls, and remediate issues.
