  • patching
  • shutting down network ports
  • retiring unused services
  • reducing the amount of code running
  • setting strong trust boundaries
  • security awareness training for employees, and more.

You can use the info from your Attack Surface view to gather the necessary data, prioritize actions, and then monitor if your remediation tactics have the desired result.
