SUNNYVALE, Calif. — CrowdStrike is offering a managed service for threat intelligence that builds on its product for protection against dark web threats and digital risk.
With Falcon X Recon+, the CrowdStrike threat intelligence team monitors, triages, assesses, and responds to threats “across the criminal underground,” according to CrowdStrike in July.
CrowdStrike’s Falcon X Recon is a platform to expose activity on the cybercriminal underground. Falcon X Recon+ combines the Falcon X Recon technology with the skills and experience of the CrowdStrike Intelligence team.
Falcon X Recon+ is set up to simplify the process of hunting and mitigating external threats to brands, employees, and sensitive data, helping customers to “focus solely on their business.”
The managed service is intended to in crease the effectiveness of the security team and reduce the time, skills, and effort necessary to “battle sophisticated adversaries.”

On the customer’s behalf, the Falcon X Recon+ threat-intelligence team monitors data from thousands of restricted forums, marketplaces, messaging platforms, social media posts, data leak sites, and more to provide relevant, real-time warnings, identifying data exposure and threats to the enterprise.
The threat-intelligence team then identifies, investigates, and recommends mitigation actions, including the potential take-down of posts and impersonations that may be harmful to the brands or reputations.
Th team also brings “global awareness” to digital risk issues and uses the company’s telemetry.
“Threat actors are becoming more brazen in their methods of attacking supply chains and deploying sophisticated ransomware campaigns,” said Adam Meyers, SVP of intelligence, CrowdStrike.
“Providing visibility into the tactics and techniques of the cybercriminal underground is no longer just a technology problem, but also requires human expertise.”
