With the acceleration of digital transformation and the growing number of companies extending their businesses to the cloud, many unmonitored external attack surfaces (VPNs, RDPs, SMBs, certificates, mobile devices, etc.) are giving rise to frequent attacks by threat actors.

To effectively protect against external attacks, it is essential to precisely identify all IT assets and conduct continuous real-time monitoring to detect any potential security breaches. This approach helps ensure that no services or open ports violate security policies, thereby mitigating the risk of successful attacks by malicious actors.

Most of the attacks launched against companies can be traced back to unidentified IT assets and security policy infringement.

Since legacy security practices and solutions are no longer able to defend against such aggressive intrusions, it is imperative that security managers establish new strategies accordingly.

Using Criminal IP Asset Search, it is possible to identify company assets and check for the existence of vulnerabilities through a simple keyword search.

For illustration, you can check the IP distribution by country and the current status of open ports, services, AS Names, and products through a company name keyword search. Through this information, you can also closely monitor whether any open ports, services, or vulnerable IPs are violating the security policy.

Drawing on the results of the Asset Search, you can perform security inspections as follows and obtain further suggestions on how to take remedial action against the detected vulnerabilities.

Criminal IP supports continuous real-time monitoring of company assets instead of a one-off inspection so that vulnerabilities can be promptly addressed upon detection.
