DeepSurface, the award-winning risk-based vulnerability management platform today announced its integration with Microsoft Defender for Endpoint. DeepSurface can now automatically ingest reports provided by Microsoft Defender for Endpoint of vulnerabilities, missing patches, and misconfigurations across Microsoft, Linux and Mac hosts.
DeepSurface then automatically analyzes and prioritizes vulnerabilities based on potential risk to the business. With DeepSurface, vulnerability management teams can quickly and easily get real-time insights into where their cybersecurity risks are, allowing them to quickly reduce the risk of a cyberattack on their organization.
“Vulnerability Management plays a crucial role in improving an organization’s overall security posture, and Microsoft’s threat and vulnerability management capabilities are a great way for customers to easily add vulnerability data to their threat model,” said DeepSurface CTO and co-founder Tim Morgan.
“We’re excited to make DeepSurface easy to use for any customers deploying Microsoft Defender for Endpoint. The new integration means companies can implement a cost-effective method of contextual vulnerability prioritization in one easy-to-use interface.”

DeepSurface is unique among vulnerability management tools in that it considers more than 50 different attributes of an environment. These include user and system account permissions, Active Directory configuration, critical and sensitive assets, installed software, user activity, network access, vulnerability scanner output (from Tenable, Qualys, Microsoft ATP, and Rapid7), and AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) attributes.
All these inputs are used to contextualize vulnerabilities (and chains of vulnerabilities) within an organization’s unique digital infrastructure. With that context, DeepSurface provides actionable intelligence so teams can be more impactful with their time and actions and organizations can predict where an attacker could cause the most damage on their network.
“We’re pleased to see DeepSurface integrate with our threat and vulnerability management capabilities in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint because it gives our mutual customers even more flexibility in designing a well-integrated vulnerability management program,” said Tomer Teller, principal security program Manager, Microsoft.
