Welcome to The Adversary Manifesto.
It’s common place these days for security companies to have some sort of publication where they can espouse their views on cyber threat prevention and detection and release research into vulnerabilities. While we’re no different in wanting to share our perspective with you, what is different is the philosophy behind our work.
We believe that in order to fully understand the cyber threat environment you need to be able to build the best possible defenses and be forearmed for effective mitigation and remediation, but you can only do this technical-level work if you have the intelligence on hand to understand the adversary behind the attack. A cyber security philosophy built on adversary intelligence allows you to build a broad spectrum security defense posture from the ground up, so that responses are no longer reactionary but part of your security manifesto. After all, security is a human problem on both sides of the equation. Our network’s adversaries are not bits of code, but humans with a disruptive mission to achieve and on the other side, there’s us and your information security team with our own mission to defend assets and, in CrowdStrike’s case, to problem solve to build resilience into your IT security posture and to give you the tools to stop the person, or group, behind the attack. And we do all this by leveraging the power of information that you already have, combining it with anonymized data from our global customer base to provide you with the capability to box in your adversary, deny them the opportunity to make the moves against your network, and shut them down, once and for all.
When you’re under attack, every second counts. CrowdStrike next-generation endpoint protection reacts in real-time, to stop attacks before they damage your business. That ability to prevent a catastrophic breach is why some of the world’s largest and most sophisticated blue chip companies and government agencies rely on CrowdStrike Falcon next-generation endpoint protection, threat intelligence, 24×7 monitoring and incident response services as their first and last line of defense against advanced targeted attacks.
Interested in seeing how we put this into practice? Spend a little time with The Adversary Manifesto each week to keep current with security news, insights from our experts, many of whom have been shaping the industry since its inception, and of course for our latest adversary profiles.
If you’d like to dive into detail on any of the topics that we cover, you can always contact us to discuss your specific needs.
