In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, it’s imperative for organizations to broaden their understanding of what constitutes a security asset. The traditional viewpoint restricts an organization’s ability to fully comprehend and leverage its true impact and risk. A progressive definition, one acknowledged by both the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in 2011 and us at Hubble Technology, recognizes assets as anything possessing intrinsic value to an organization.

Unpacking the NIST Definition

In its Interagency Report 7693, NIST provided a pivotal definition for security assets, casting a wider net to include elements of intrinsic value. The report unequivocally states: “An asset is considered to be anything that has value to an organization”.

Hubble’s Perspective: Holistic Asset Understanding

At Hubble, we’ve woven this inclusive definition into the fabric of our operations within the Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) space. We believe that by embracing a broader conception of an asset, we equip our users with tools for deeper visibility, insightful intelligence, and comprehensive relationship mapping throughout the organization.

This approach allows us to help organizations better understand their entire attack surface and gaps in their existing security controls with greater precision and nuance.

The Hubble Advantage: Unleashing Asset Power

Our alignment with the expanded asset definition empowers Hubble to offer unparalleled services in the CAASM arena. With a wider lens capturing the full spectrum of security assets, we provide organizations with insights that are both granular and holistic.

Our approach grants clients a 360-degree view of their environment, ensuring no asset—traditional or intrinsic – is overlooked or undervalued. Through detailed asset intelligence and relationship mapping, we offer a clear roadmap for organizations to navigate their complex attack surface efficiently and securely.

Conclusion: A Future-Forward Asset Vision

Reimagining and redefining assets is not just a theoretical exercise—it’s a strategic imperative for contemporary cybersecurity. By recognizing and valuing anything that has intrinsic value to an organization, companies can navigate today’s complex digital terrain with greater confidence and agility.

Hubble is at the forefront of this paradigm shift within the CAASM space, championing a vision where every asset’s intrinsic value is identified, understood, and leveraged for organizational success.
