Welcome to the Microsoft Defender External Attack Surface Management (MDEASM) Tech Community!


Understanding your external attack surface is critical in this era of digital expansion and hybrid work, as unmanaged resources and shadow IT create an increasingly severe security risk. Since we launched MDEASM over the summer, we've been thrilled to work with organizations of all sizes and complexity that use its unique global attack surface discovery technology to strengthen their security posture.


In the MDEASM Tech Community, we'll share the latest content about how network teams, security defenders, and incident responders can get the most out of MDEASM's industry-leading attack surface management capabilities. The blogs, videos, and training posted here will help you get up-to-speed in identifying, classifying, and prioritizing unknown and unmanaged internet-exposed resources and leveraging insights that help prioritize the most critical risks to your organization. We'll also offer expert how-to guides for integrating MDEASM with other Microsoft Security products and other tools and workflows you already use.


We are also looking forward to hearing from you! The MDEASM Tech Community is a great place to ask us questions and offer our engineering and product teams feedback about what's working well, the unique ways you're leveraging MDEASM, and what you'd like to see us build next.
