How to Use At-Bay Stance Exposure Manager
Helping you protect your business from every angle. Here’s how to navigate Stance Exposure Manager and build a strong cyber security strategy.
What if you could see an attack coming before it happens? You could stop it in its tracks and save yourself the financial burden and headache of recovery.
But you have a business to run. There’s no time for you to play the role of watchdog.
That’s why we created At-Bay Stance™ Exposure Manager: to alert you to weaknesses that attackers could exploit, evaluate and prioritize those threats, and tell you when and how to take action to strengthen your security.
Here’s how to navigate Stance Exposure Manager and build a strong cyber security strategy.
When you log in to your Stance Exposure Manager dashboard, you will instantly see where your business is vulnerable.
On the summary page, which opens when you log in, you can view the results of your weekly security scan and understand how well your business is protected at that moment.
The five colored circles at the top of the home page offer a visual representation of your current security posture. The colors correspond with the severity of the risk:
- Red issues are critical and merit urgent action
- Orange issues are serious
- Yellow issues are moderate
- Green means you’re in good shape
If multiple issues exist in a category, the most urgent one will be prioritized and will determine the color of the circle. A good rule of thumb: If you see that a circle is red, orange, or yellow, it’s best to investigate to stay ahead of emerging threats.
You can click each circle to view all the issues in the category and get more information.
For example, if you click on “Access controls,” which has one issue, you will be taken to a page that explains the issue in greater detail and provides a link to resolution instructions.
Now that you know where you have weaknesses that attackers could exploit, you can start to resolve them.
In the Open issues tab on the summary page of your Stance Exposure Manager dashboard, you can see the three most severe issues on your account, regardless of category. Click “View all” to open a dedicated Open issues page, which allows you to filter issues by category and/or severity level.
All issues include a link to resolution instructions so you can take action to strengthen your security.
In the Digital footprint section on the summary page of your Stance Exposure Manager dashboard, you can view all your company’s assets and technologies in one place.
Navigate to the Assets page by clicking “View all” by the Assets tab on the home page, or by clicking the three-line icon in the top right corner on any page and selecting “Assets.”
This page provides a more granular view of the security of your digital assets. Here, you can view all domains, subdomains, and email domains (the three types of assets that Stance Exposure Manager monitors); view security issues; and add or remove additional assets.
Clicking the name of an asset brings you to an Asset details page that specifies which issues are currently active. From here, you can click on an associated issue, which provides further details about the asset itself.
Navigate to the Technologies page by clicking “View all” by the Technologies tab on the home page, or by clicking the three-line icon in the top right corner on any page and selecting “Technologies.”
This page displays the technologies that the Stance Exposure Manager found in the scan of your organization, such as proxy servers, web applications, and other software. Additionally, individual assets within each technology are displayed for a more detailed view.
Controlling who has access to information is paramount to securing your business. The Team tab gives you a comprehensive view of who has access to Stance Exposure Manager at your company.
You can access the Team tab by clicking the three-line icon in the top right corner on any page and selecting “Team.” This allows you to view the list of users who have access to Stance Exposure Manager and if they have enabled multi-factor authentication (MFA).
