Threat intelligence has the potential to profoundly transform an organization's security posture, but it has proven complex and costly for many organizations to adopt and operationalize.

The CrowdStrike Falcon X is designed to integrate threat intelligence into endpoint security and eliminate these challenges. With the CrowdStrike Falcon platform as a foundation, Falcon X purportedly enables cybersecurity teams to automatically analyze malware found on endpoints, find related threats and enrich the results with customized threat intelligence. This review will examine how successful the platform is at providing the needed integration and where it fits in the security operations center (SOC) workflow. Specifically, this webcast will cover the following:

  • Quarantining malware at the endpoint
  • Malware analysis
  • Contextual intelligence
  • Cyber espionage and cybercrime adversaries

Register today to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by threat intelligence expert Dave Shackleford.
