Attack surface reduction principles include:

  • 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 Pentest-Tools.com Attack Surface view to gather the necessary data, prioritize actions, and then monitor if your remediation tactics have the desired result.
