"Most breaches that disrupt operations start with an exposed Internet Asset, which unfortunately means an organization is only as secure as its least secure supplier," said
Suppliers can pose significant operational and strategic risk to the organizations they work for. These risks include business interruption in the event of an attack on a supplier, loss of sensitive data or intellectual property shared with the supplier, or attacks that use supplier networks as a stepping stone into the organization's network. Organizations have employed various strategies for supply chain security, but none have provided the continuous visibility needed to drive operational changes and improve security outcomes throughout the supply chain.
As a platform for shared governance between an organization and a strategic supplier, Expanse Link makes it possible for organizations to assist suppliers with remediation as well as to hold them accountable for security and policy lapses. The product uses proprietary mapping technology to discover Internet Assets and services relating to the supplier across registered ranges, commercial IP space, and even dynamic cloud environments, as well as to detect risky and out-of-policy network communications from any part of the network of any supplier. This data is then surfaced in a web portal and RESTful API, enabling organizations to integrate information about their supply chain into existing tools and processes. Organizations can then review, triage, and monitor any exposures or policy violations.
Key capabilities of Expanse Link include:
- Complete discovery of Internet Assets on-premises and across all cloud providers, leading to full visibility.
- Accurate attribution and full data transparency so that suppliers and parents can quickly determine if an exposed asset is business critical.
- Daily data updates to quickly verify remediation.
- Remote detection of risky and out-of-policy network traffic across all global supplier networks without installing or configuring any local sensors.
