Keeping track of publicly exposed assets can be difficult, especially as companies migrate to the cloud, workforces are more distributed, and companies can suddenly acquire security debt from mergers or acquisitions. Censys helps discover, manage, and remediate threats in digital landscapes. The founders of the Zmap Project leveraged the power of trustworthy internet-wide scan data and created Censys to help organizations understand their external exposures.
