map internal & external IP addresses, analyse where IP leak paths may exist
One of the fundamental IT security challenges within large organisations is the shadow IT ‘visibility gap’ between assumed, or known infrastructure, and what actually exists today; if you can’t see a legitimate device on your network then how can you properly defend it?
Similarly, if you are missing legitimate devices, are you also missing unauthorised devices too, or could any of those anonymous devices provide backdoors into the network that leave your infrastructure exposed and vulnerable?
Whether as a result of merger/acquisition activities, personnel changes or infrastructure changes over time, on average it is estimated that the ‘shadow IT’ visibility gap in large organisations is around 40% of the total network infrastructure.
A healthy step towards a solid IT security strategy is to build an accurate 360-degree view of connected devices in real-time, so that informed decisions can be made based on accurate data.
Garner have predicted that by 2020, one-third of successful cyber-attacks against enterprises will be achieved through targeting ‘invisible’ shadow IT, which, at an estimated average cost of $3.8 million for every data breach within a large organisation, could prove extremely costly unless steps are taken to improve network visibility and enforce internal processes to combat shadow IT.
