Gartner® Top Strategic Technology Trends for 2024: Continuous Threat Exposure Management

A report by independent analyst firm Gartner

Gartner Technology Report hero

Security leaders are struggling with insufficient visibility into their continuously growing enterprise attack surfaces. Coupled with this are challenges in identifying and handling an influx of exposures and vulnerabilities, as well as difficulties in prioritizing remediation efforts.

Exposure management is a forward-looking defense strategy that goes beyond software vulnerabilities to include other exposures related to cloud resources, privilege entitlements and code flaws.

Gartner predicts: “By 2026, organizations prioritizing their security investments based on a continuous threat exposure management program, will realize a two-third reduction in breaches”, and recommends that security leaders implement continuous and repeatable exposure management processes, optimizing short-term responses and longer-term security posture.

This independent Gartner report delves into the Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) program and shares that it is an umbrella term for forward-looking and sustainable approaches to exposure reduction.

Gain insights on the five-stages Gartner recommends in a CTEM cycle to effectively manage exposure, including: scoping, discovery, prioritization, validation and mobilization. As detailed in the report, this framework was named a top strategic technology trend for 2024.

The powerful capabilities of Armis Centrix™, the cyber exposure management platform, enables effective implementations of comprehensive CTEM programs. To see how, schedule a 30-minute demo with an Armis expert.
