Research Firm’s Latest External Risk Mitigation and Management (ERMM) Benchmark Report Highlights Our Innovative Product Roadmap and Strategic Vision
In Frost & Sullivan’s latest External Risk Mitigation and Management (ERMM) Benchmark Report, the research firm recognized Cybersixgill as a leader in cyber threat intelligence (CTI) – foundational to an organization’s ERMM strategy. According to the report, ERMM comprises cybersecurity practices that map external attack surfaces, continually monitor the threat landscape, mitigate risks, and enhance organizational security strategy. ERMM integrates formerly distinct capabilities, including external attack surface management (EASM), cyber threat intelligence (CTI), and digital risk protection (DRP), into a unified experience.
The Frost & Sullivan report details the organization's market research, identifying trends and top vendors and tools in the cybersecurity industry. Inclusion in the report underscores our position as a top cyber threat intelligence (CTI) provider and validates our technology roadmap, strategic vision, and commitment to innovation.
CTI effectiveness relies on a trio of critical capabilities
We have long believed that threat intelligence without organizational context is just data – and too much of it. Without the contextual lens through which to understand such intelligence and actionable insights guiding security teams on what’s needed to mitigate risk, cyber defenders are hard-pressed to make an impact, given the overwhelming stream of alerts and information. In short, they continue to face an onslaught of threats and vulnerabilities they can’t get ahead of.
To minimize and manage risk continuously, companies need threat intelligence combined with their unique attack surface context and actionability through automated digital risk protection. This trio of capabilities is vital to an organization’s security posture – and has been the essence of our product vision since our inception, given our deep, extensive CTI experience and ongoing interactions with customers.
In the report, Frost & Sullivan gives us high marks for our Attack Surface Management (ASM) module, which provides our customers contextual intelligence and insights based on their organizational context and attack surface, and Cybersixgill IQ, our generative AI. Combined with our DRP features, we deliver streamlined, actionable insights to our customers and empower teams to eliminate risk before a threat actor strikes.
“Cybersixgill’s commitment to innovation is evident through substantial R&D investments and a well-established technology roadmap, expanding its intelligence use cases, automation capabilities, and third-party integrations. With Cybersixgill IQ, a generative AI solution trained on real-time threat intelligence, Cybersixgill empowers organizations to streamline their cybersecurity operations through enhanced search and automation capabilities. Additionally, its ASM module natively integrates with the rest of its threat intelligence portfolio, providing critical context for organizations to proactively mitigate threats through continuous asset discovery, inventory management, and comprehensive monitoring capabilities.”

The bottom line is that a valuable ERMM strategy is about the end-to-end effectiveness, efficiency, and actionability of CTI – paramount to efficient, impactful, continuous threat exposure management.
