Ionix Offers Threat Exposure Management

Ionix has added the Threat Exposure Radar threat exposure management capability to its attack surface management (ASM) platform, according to the company.

Threat Exposure Radar provides insights into exposures across organizations' cloud, on-premises, SaaS and third-party systems, Ionix stated. This capability enables security teams to visualize and prioritize hundreds of attack surface threats into insights. It also provides workflows with next steps to simplify and speed up threat remediation.

How Ionix's Threat Exposure Radar Works

Threat Exposure Radar offers hundreds of potential exposure insights, Ionix stated. The capability provides a visual radar-like view and summary table with explanations for asset discovery and prioritization. It also delivers color-coded details to highlight urgent security findings.

Meanwhile, MSSPs can use Threat Exposure Radar to provide their customers with security insights and help them reduce risk, Ionix CEO Marc Gaffan told MSSP Alert.

“MSSPs are looking to Threat Exposure to add value for their customers by providing critical security insights and proactively reducing risk," Gaffan said. "With IONIX, MSSPs gain a holistic view across their attack surface from the attackers’ perspective and a strong foundation upon which expand their portfolio of services. From risk assessments, penetration-testing, SOC-as-a-service to red team exercises, IONIX Threat Exposure Radar surfaces critical exposures enabling MSSPs to accelerate respond emerging threats and effectively improve their customers’ security posture.”

Companies can integrate Threat Exposure Radar into a variety of security services, including:

  • Penetration testing
  • Red team exercises
  • Risk assessments
  • Security operations center-as-a-service (SOCaaS)

By using Threat Exposure Radar to offer these services and many others, MSSPs can identify critical exposures across their customers' environments, Gaffan indicated. That way, they can respond to emerging threats across these environments and help their customers improve their security posture.

A Closer Look at Ionix

Cyberpion rebranded itself as Ionix in March 2023. Since that time, Ionix has been focused on helping organizations "keep an 'eye on x,'" the business indicated.

Ionix offers a platform and solutions that give organizations visibility into their attack surfaces. It uses Connective Intelligence technology to map an organization's attack surface and its digital supply chain. This technology allows Ionix to discover more organizational assets than any other provider and help organizations protect against attacks, the business noted.

MSSPs and other technology providers can partner with Ionix to integrate the company's platform and solutions into their offerings.

Ionix reported 250% annual recurring revenue (ARR) growth and secured $27 million in Series A funding in 2022 and continues to look for ways to further extend its reach in the global ASM solutions market.
