Detectify Improves Attack Surface Visibility with IP Addresses View

Detectify, an external attack surface management platform powered by elite ethical hackers, has improved its platform to elevate an organization’s visibility into its attack surface.

Many organizations need help gaining visibility into the IP addresses across their environment. Detectify’s new capabilities enable organizations to uncover unauthorized assets and ensure regulatory compliance.

The attack surface has grown exponentially, not least in how decentralized organizations have become. More than 10 percent of Detectify customers host data across three continents, illustrating how their products and services have become more global.

Detectify also notes that 30 percent of its customer base leverages more than five service providers, which reflects the growing trend in vulnerabilities as a result of human errors, like server misconfigurations.

Moreover, organizations are expanding their digital footprint, with 73 percent of Detectify customers using Ipv6 addresses.

With the introduction of IP Addresses view, Detectify users gain seamless access to a comprehensive list of all IPs associated with their domains, accompanied by insights, including hosting provider details, geographical locations and autonomous system numbers (ASNs).

This update is complemented by interactive charts, enabling users to detect outlier countries or providers, and streamlining the process of identifying potential security concerns.

Detectify’s IP Addresses view provides security teams with tangible benefits to navigate complex attack surfaces, such as:

  • Uncovering unauthorized assets – For organizations with large attack surfaces, this capability allows users to identify unauthorized assets hosted by unapproved vendors. By detecting an asset being hosted by a non-approved provider, this allows security teams to take swift action and mitigate potential threats.
  • Ensuring regulatory compliance – For businesses operating in highly regulated environments where compliance is paramount, the new view is critical in determining the hosting locations of specific customer data. This enhanced visibility ensures adherence to regulatory requirements and fortifies data privacy measures.

The IP Addresses view is available now to all Detectify customers. For more information, visit
