NSFOCUS announced the launch of NSFOCUS Exposed Internet Surface Analysis (EISA), a new capability to address the cyber security risk faced by organizations today.

EISA identifies malicious activity of rogue IPs, ports and services that might be compromised and hidden within the organization’s network providing insights to prioritize remediation and block further malicious activity from within the network.

Organizations have embraced digital transformation to create new business models and ecosystems, deliver new products and services, and operate in the digital economy.

As a result, new digital platforms such as cloud, mobile, IoT devices and systems of all types – from corporate conference systems to power grids – are now network connected and exposed to cyber risks and attackers.

NSFOCUS EISA is built to address these risks by searching for unknown IPs, hijacked IPs, unknown ports open on known IPs, and the services running on those ports.

Integrated with the NSFOCUS Threat Intelligence (NTI) Subscription Service, EISA determines if there is any evidence of malicious activity and provides a risk assessment analysis for mitigation.

“Cyber risk exposure has become increasingly difficult to manage, as organizations are challenged with protecting critical assets while managing the sheer number of internet connections which expand its attack surface,” said Attley Ng, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific, NSFOCUS.

“As a new feature in the NSFOCUS suite of solutions, EISA helps organizations to understand their cyber risk exposure in real-time, allowing IT teams to develop remediation plans and intrusion prevention policies to block further malicious activity. Paired with NSFOCUS Threat Intelligence, EISA reassures and benchmarks each organization’s cyber risk exposure, allowing them to make better business and technology decisions.”

The NSFOCUS EISA can be run once or as a subscription service with various levels of monitoring services to meet different requirements.

It can be used by organizations with the smallest internet footprint to multi-national businesses that own IP ranges all over the world. Beyond just identifying cyber risk exposure, EISA helps organizations to reduce operations and maintenance costs by mitigating costs lost to rogue systems and services.

NSFOCUS EISA is available as an additional service with all NSFOCUS security solutions.

Working together, NSFOCUS hybrid security solutions obtain the latest reputation data of IP addresses and generate related protection policies to block attacks, provide security assurance, and improve security posture.

NSFOCUS can augment existing threat intelligence through integration with other threat intelligence offerings or SIEM deployments, and across NSFOCUS’ network and application security products.
