Secure the Keys to Your Kingdom

Unveiling New Data on Global Attack Surface Threats

The Cortex® Xpanse™ research team has uncovered new data in our study of the global attack surface. From December 2021 to June 2022, we monitored scans of 50 million IP addresses associated with 100+ global enterprises, and we discovered new information on industries with active RDP exposures. See where your organization’s attack surface stands compared to other industries. Armed with knowledge, be proactive in discovering your unknown assets and exposures in order to build resilient security operations. Join now to learn more about the global attack surface and your own.
