Attack Surface Assessment

Uncover newly discovered security vulnerabilities and reduce risky entry points within your IT environment

Evaluate your Cyber Attack Surface

As the scope of your business grows and changes, so do the chances of attacks from threat actors. Adopting new technologies, changing your organisation’s supply chain, and expanding your IT infrastructure are just some of the areas that lead to increased security risks and additional attacker entry points.

At Stripe OLT, our offensive security team can review your entire attack surface, identifying vulnerabilities and potential attack vectors that could be used to exploit your business. This analysis allows organisations to manage and reduce the risks of costly attacks, and sensitive information leaks and ultimately improve their security posture.
Over my many years in security, I have worked with some of the best security services in the business and I must say I found Stripe OLT extremely professional and made me comfortable sharing our company’s most valuable information.

What is an Attack Surface Assessment and what is included in this service? 

An attack surface assessment, also known as an attack surface analysis, evaluation or review, serves as a sophisticated threat intelligence tool. It meticulously maps out an organisation’s digital vulnerabilities, offering a comprehensive overview through the lens of potential threat actors.

Our team offer tailored attack surface assessments, that can delve into the following core areas:
Exposed Network Devices
Leaked Credentials
Misconfigurations within your systems
Public-facing security vulnerabilities
Network Surfaces
Application and Software Surfaces 
Authentication and Access Control
Cloud and Third-Party Surfaces
Endpoint Surfaces
System Management Surfaces
Communication Surfaces
Policy, Training and Human Surfaces

What are the Benefits of an Attack Surface review?

Why does your organisation need an Attack Surface Review?
Discover hidden weaknesses
Our attack surface review will find unknown internet-connected assets, unsecured third-party vendors and flawed or outdated software. It builds a big picture of your entire attack surface.
Prioritise fixes 
Within the Attack surface review report, we’ll highlight and prioritise the largest holes within your security – with added remediation advice. You’ll be able to efficiently allocate the resources to tackle the areas that need it most and secure your assets and data.
Risk Reduction 
Shrink the target size of your attack surface and reduce risk of financial and damaging reputational data leaks.
Maintain and Build Trust 
When you conduct an attack surface review and improve defensive measures you display your commitment to cyber security. It helps build customer, client and partner trust, by showcasing a desire to protect their data.

Our Attack Surface MethodologyTHE STRIPE OLT PROVEN PROCESS

An attack surface assessment is a crucial first step in reducing your attack surface. It involves identifying a comprehensive view of all points that an attacker could target and leverage to enter your IT estate.

At Stripe OLT, we employ a meticulous methodology during our assessments, ensuring that every potential vulnerability is thoroughly examined and addressed.
1

Reconnaissance and Attack Surface Mapping

The first phase is conducted before any automated tools are used.

During this stage, we identify all open-source information that could lead to the root cause for more targeted attacks or to identify vulnerabilities.
2

Active Information Gathering and Service Discovery 

The second stage involves active mapping of network and cloud-based infrastructure, vulnerability scanning of open internet-facing services plus scanning for unpublished directories, files and servers.
3

Passive Information Gathering 

The third phase involves collecting information that is outside of your organisation’s network. This can involve many different types of searches, using threat intelligence resources such as: web presence, dark web data, employee-linked information, private groups, commissioned information and other third-party sources.

The goal is to discover as much information as possible that is accessible to those with malicious intentions.
4

TCP, UDP Scanning, URL Fuzzing and Finger Printing

The fourth stage concerns probing the domains, URLs, IP addresses and IP addresses identified within the previous steps. This reveals running services, operating systems as well as other device information and access to areas where there should not be.
5

Attack Surface Review Reporting 

The final stage provides you with an actionable attack surface review report as well as access to an accompanying workshop to help you fully understand the findings.

Attack Surface Assessment FAQs 

What is an Attack Surface? 
An attack surface is comprised of all entry points and vulnerabilities (vectors) found within your business that an attacker could exploit. An attacker can use entry points to access your systems and extract or delete valuable data leaking it to the dark web or using it for ransom. Some entry points can offer bigger potential vulnerabilities than others. The smaller the attack vectors and surface the more the risks are reduced. Regular assessments of your attack surface and improvements to security controls will severely improve your company’s security posture. Maintaining a business’s attack surface should be an ongoing process.
