Mandiant, an information security company part of FireEye focusing on incident response, has announced its acquisition of Intrigue Corporation, a provider of Attack Surface Management (ASM) technology, to further the capabilities of Mandiant Advantage SaaS platform.
In an official announcement on the FireEye blog, Colby DeRodeff, chief technology officer of Mandiant Advantage, stated that ASM is quickly emerging today, driving value through asset and exposure visibility in internet-facing attack surfaces.

In a press release, Mandiant stressed that the combination of its in-class intelligence and Intrigue’s powerful attack surface discovery capabilities would help deliver a deeper understanding of risk across multi-cloud, hybrid, and on-premise environments. Additionally, with Intrigue’s help, Mandiant’s customers could address critical gaps in their security programs by leveraging the latest ASM capabilities in an easy-to-use SaaS platform.
Mandiant said it would expand its SaaS capabilities in conjunction with the other modules currently offered through its Mandiant Advantage platforms, such as Mandiant Threat Intelligence, Security Validation and Automated Defense.

Mandiant knows what adversaries are doing right now and what vulnerabilities they are currently exploiting. By combining this intelligence with the capabilities of Intrigue, we are rapidly evolving our customers’ ability to manage risk and prioritize their resources efficientlyColby DeRodeff, CTO of Mandiant Advantage
