Attack Vector

Attack vectors are the methods or paths adversaries use to breach or infiltrate a network, system, or service. Hackers typically look for the lowest hanging fruit for their attack. They seek out vulnerabilities they think will be the easiest to penetrate.

Attack vectors can include malware, viruses, malicious email attachments, web pages, pop-ups, passwords, weak encryption, unpatched software, instant messages, text messages, and social engineering.

RidgeBot® finds, validates, and recommends mitigation for attack vectors

Ridge Security’s RidgeBot®, an automated pentest robot for risk-based vulnerability management, relentlessly locates attack vector vulnerabilities across an enterprise network, documents its findings, continuously measures effectiveness, and validates the results. Organizations see what would happen in the event of an attack, how their defenses would cope, and how well the processes would perform.
