Silent Breach: A Blanket of Security to Reduce Attack Surfaces
Marc Castejon, CEO & Founder
Silent Breach - a leader in network security and digital asset protection - recently conducted a study that brought to light a rather alarming set of statistics. For example, the average time for a company to detect a data breach is 183 days. This means that hackers often maintain full access to a company’s IT systems for more than six months prior to detection. Such critical vulnerabilities in asset management, along with the dire need for proactive attack surface management, led to the development of Silent Breach’s Quantum Armor, a next generation attack surface management tool.
“Some of our customers that have been using the Quantum Armour have discovered assets that didn’t even know about and found servers that were publicly accessible”
Quantum Armor helps IT teams visualize their attack surface along with any attack vectors that hackers might exploit. This presents a true snapshot of your security posture, as well as enabling continuous monitoring. Furthermore, Quantum Armor’s threat intelligence tool continually searches the Dark Web for any leaked passwords or data. Upon discovering a data leak, a notification is automatically generated, providing a quick solution to patch the vulnerability while minimizing future risks to the business.
“Upon activating Quantum Armor, some of our customers immediately discovered new assets they didn’t even know existed and found servers that were publicly accessible,” explains Marc Castejon, CEO of Silent Breach.
“With the holistic view of assets provided by Quantum Armor, other clients realized they had breached credentials, servers with rootkits installed on them, or data being actively exploited by hackers.”
Quantum Armor goes a step further and uses artificial intelligence to generate a customized remediation plan to reduce the attack surface and charts a roadmap to close vulnerabilities before they become areas of concern. Each vulnerability is prioritized in the order of threat severity using the built-in vulnerability scanner, detecting any system that needs to be patched.

Social engineering is a leading source of data breaches, and an area that Quantum Armor pays particular attention to. To identify DNS lookalikes that can be used to lure customers, the company has developed an algorithm that generates a list of different domain names and permutations to check against actual DNS servers. Securing DNS servers allows clients to ensure that multiple copies of their website belong to them and alerts them to any new lookalike domains that come online. This enables companies to take a proactive approach to securing their assets as well as gain insight into incoming attacks.
In tandem with its innovative and holistic approach to digital security, such initiatives solidify Silent Breach’s position as an emerging leader within the IT security landscape.
