    What is CAASM?

    CAASM, pronounced kaz-uhm, stands for Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management. Initially coined by Gartner in the 2021 Hype Cycle for Network Security and honored again in the 2022 Hype Cycle for Security Operations, CAASM is an emerging technology that enables organizations to consolidate assets distributed across their expanding IT environments.

    What CAASM solutions do

    CAASM solutions help organizations detect and identify their software, hardware, and any cloud-based assets connected to their network, and discover vulnerabilities in those assets that could lead to a cyber attack.

    How do CASSM solutions work?

    By providing a consolidated view of all assets, Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management solutions aim to solve the asset visibility challenge. By leveraging API integrations with existing tools to provide a consolidated view of all assets, CAASM allows IT and security teams to gain visibility into the assets they have in order to manage and secure them.
