SaaS-based external attack surface management (EASM) company Cyberpion has rebranded as Ionix, at the same time adding a clutch of new cybersecurity capabilities to its namesake offering.Designed to provide a \u201cwider coverage and deeper focus\u201d into its customers\u2019 internet-facing assets and connected dependencies, the revamp of Ionix's system will feature new abilities such as\u00a0extending visibility into connected assets and shadow IT, and scoring risks based on possible blast radius.\u201cAlong with the rebrand comes important new capabilities, including risk scores and executive ASM reports that quantify attack surface risk across multiple categories and provide operational intelligence of their attack surface,\u201d said Ionix CEO Marc Gaffan. \u201cFor security teams, new capabilities include smart remediation workflows, validation of exploitability, identification of the blast radius, and integration with customer cloud environments.\u201dIonix rebranding focuses on interconnectivityBlast radius is the total potential damage caused by a cybersecurity attack. \u00a0The Ionix upgrade is designed to determine the blast radius of internet-facing assets and rank them based on data sensitivity, business context, brand reputation, and interconnectivity. It also evaluates exploitability by identifying misconfigurations, documented exploits, and simulated attacks.Ionix will extend coverage to customers\u2019 cloud environments to generate an attacker\u2019s view of exposed assets and shadow IT.\u201cCloud migrations are complex projects, often involving multiple vendor partners. As you move across platforms to production, assets are often left exposed or with dangling connections,\u201d Gaffan said. \u201cWith Ionix, users can discover exposed cloud assets, shadow IT and connected partner assets, automatically identify and prioritize misconfigurations and vulnerabilities, and effectively reduce mean time to resolution (MTTR) with clear actions items and integrated workflows.\u201dIonix will also source threat intelligence about leaked credentials and compromised machines from the dark web and correlate them with customers\u2019 asset inventories.Ionix now offers risk scores and reportsIonix has also added a feature that quantifies customers\u2019 attack surface risks across multiple assets by offering risk scores to help organizations understand their security posture, track progress over time and make informed decisions.It will also feature what it calls \u00a0\u201csmart remediation workflows\u201d that help reduce alert noise via features such as automatic assignment of remediation tasks to appropriate departments.Ionix will also enable the generation of executive ASM reports with one click to provide a comprehensive overview of a company's attack surface, individual assets, associated risks, and action items, according to the company.\u201cOur aim is to have the broadest asset discovery, together with focus on high-impact exploitable risks across your entire attack surface,\u201d Gaffan added. \u201cThis is all powered by Ionix Connective Intelligence, our unique technology that uses machine learning to discover and monitor every internet-facing asset and connection that an organization has across their attack surface.\u201dAll the new capabilities have been added to the SaaS engine running on Ionix\u2019s cloud and are already available to the company\u2019s existing customers for no extra price.
