DeepSurface, the award-winning risk-based vulnerability management platform has integrated with Microsoft Defender for Endpoint. DeepSurface can now automatically accept reports of vulnerabilities, missing patches, and misconfigurations across Microsoft, Linux, and Mac hosts provided by Microsoft Defender for Endpoint. DeepSurface then assesses and ranks vulnerabilities based on the possible risk to the company. Vulnerability management teams can gain comprehensive insight on where their cybersecurity risks are with DeepSurface, allowing them to lower the risk of a cyberattack on their company swiftly.

“Vulnerability Management plays a crucial role in improving an organization’s overall security posture, and Microsoft’s threat and vulnerability management capabilities are a great way for customers to easily add vulnerability data to their threat model. We’re excited to make DeepSurface easy to use for any customers deploying Microsoft Defender for Endpoint. The new integration means companies can implement a cost-effective method of contextual vulnerability prioritization in one easy-to-use interface,” said DeepSurface CTO and co-founder Tim Morgan.

DeepSurface is one of the few vulnerability management systems that take into account more than 50 different environmental factors. User and system account permissions, Active Directory configuration, critical and sensitive assets, installed software, user activity, network access, vulnerability scanner output (from Tenable, Qualys, Microsoft ATP, and Rapid7), and AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) attributes are among the items examined. All of these details are utilized to place vulnerabilities (and chains of vulnerabilities) in the context of an organization’s digital infrastructure.

Tomer Teller, principal security program Manager, Microsoft said, “We’re pleased to see DeepSurface integrate with our threat and vulnerability management capabilities in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint because it gives our mutual customers even more flexibility in designing a well-integrated vulnerability management program.”
