People, Process and Technology Are All Key to Stopping Breaches
24 x 7 Human Expertise
- Attacker mentality. Effective threat hunting requires the ability and expertise to think like an attacker.
- Cross-disciplinary expertise. OverWatch employs elite experts from a wide range of backgrounds, including government, law enforcement, commercial enterprise, the intelligence community and defense.
- 24/7/365 availability. When a sophisticated intrusion occurs, time is critical. Your adversaries do not sleep and are not restricted by time zones or geography — and neither should your threat hunting team.
- Continuous vigilance. OverWatch’s continuous, proactive operations deliver results every minute of every day.
- Finely-tuned response. OverWatch identifies and responds to hundreds of potential breaches per week. Each threat handled helps team members fine-tune their skills and processes, ensuring they are always sharp and effective.
Cloud-scale Security Telemetry
- Tools for the hunt. Threat hunting requires more than just expert hunters — those hunters need the right tools. Scalable and effective threat hunting requires access to vast amounts of data and also the ability to mine that data in real time for signs of intrusions.
- Real-time visibility. OverWatch takes advantage of the cloud-scale telemetry of the proprietary CrowdStrike Threat Graph® to get broad, deep visibility, delivered in real time.
- Massive data. Threat Graph ingests trillions of events each week, giving Falcon OverWatch an extensive, global real-time view of threat activity, as it happens.
Up-to-the-minute Threat Intelligence
- Threat context. You can’t detect a threat you don’t understand.
- CrowdStrike threat intelligence. This intel empowers OverWatch with detailed, always-current knowledge of tradecraft from more than 130 adversaries.
- Current TTPs. This intimate knowledge of the latest TTPs (tactics, techniques, and procedures) in use today ensures that OverWatch is able to hunt effectively and efficiently.
