Key capabilities of CrowdStrike Counter Adversary Operations

Stop the most advanced attacks

Falcon Adversary OverWatch is the industry’s only 24/7 threat hunting service that spans endpoint, identity, and cloud to proactively disrupt adversaries in real-time. Powered by industry-leading threat intelligence and advanced AI, our experts never sleep to stop the breach on your behalf.

Access world-class intelligence across CrowdStrike Falcon® platform modules to make better, faster decisions. No need for costly and fragile integrations, insights are available on day one and instantly accessible within analyst’s workflows.

Prioritize patching of vulnerabilities found within your environment. By understanding the adversaries targeting your industry and region, you can proactively patch systems before any exploit attempt.

This process tree includes a Falcon Adversary OverWatch detection that identifies an attempt to execute a malicious BASH script.

This Falcon platform endpoint detection is enriched with threat intelligence, including attribution, and provides direct links to related vulnerabilities, detections and malware sandbox reports.

The vulnerability intelligence app is updated from the National Vulnerability Database in real-time. Access in-depth vulnerability details and pivot directly to CrowdStrike Falcon® Spotlight to immediately patch systems in your environment.

Supercharge the SOC

Falcon Adversary Intelligence provides detailed profiles of over 230 adversaries, including nation-states, eCrime groups, and hacktivists. Each profile breaks down their methods, maps their tactics to the MITRE ATT&CK framework, and reveals the vulnerabilities they exploit.

Accelerate incident triage and investigations by instantly submitting potential threats found within your environment to an advanced sandbox. Then extract indicators and instantly deploy countermeasures.

Monitor the dark web and criminal forums to detect and block threats that can compromise identities, sensitive data, and damage your organization’s brand.

Gain access to CrowdStrike’s validated, real-time indicators of compromise. Leverage pre-built integrations and easy to use APIs to get the right defenses, to the right tool, at the right time.

The adversary listing not only provides comprehensive profiles, but enables you to link directly to Falcon platform modules to remediate security issues in your environment.

CrowdStrike Falcon® Sandbox reports provide a comprehensive overview of the behavior of suspicious files. Use the threat score to quickly triage threats, block malicious IPs, and automatically deploy related indicators of compromise.

Interactive dashboards provide visibility into potential threats across the dark web. Drill down for details or set block lists and perform takedowns.

This CrowdStrike Falcon® Fusion SOAR workflow evaluates the severity of a threat discovered by CrowdStrike Adversary Intelligence on the dark web, then triggers a Falcon platform detection any time the domain is observed.
