Modern tech stacks are becoming increasingly complex puzzles of components built in-house and sourced from third-party vendors. With DNS at the center of the infrastructure, and staging and production being sometimes just minutes apart, scanning for CVEs is not enough to stay on top of web threats. There are lots of critical things traditional app scanners won’t catch, like dangling DNS records, subdomain takeover and open S3 buckets. To keep their growing attack surface secure, companies need to combine crowdsourced vulnerability detection with solutions that detect outliers and anomalies in their software - before these become an attack vector. In this episode we’ll discuss:
- Why hunting for vulnerabilities is no longer enough to stay on top of threats
- Vulnerability Management vs Attack Surface Management
- How security teams can adapt their vulnerability management process to modern dev cycles.
