Fortinet FortiRecon Debuts
June 7, 2022
FortiRecon is a complete Digital Risk Protection Service (DRPS) offering that uses a powerful combination of machine learning, automation capabilities, and FortiGuard Labs cybersecurity experts to manage a company’s risk posture and advise meaningful action to protect their brand reputation, enterprise assets, and data. FortiRecon uniquely delivers a triple offering of outside-in coverage across External Attack Surface Management (EASM), Brand Protection (BP), and Adversary-Centric Intelligence (ACI) to counter attacks at the reconnaissance phase – the first stage of a cyberattack – to significantly reduce the risk, time, and cost of later stage threat mitigation.
John Maddison, EVP of Products and CMO at
said, “The sooner in the attack cycle you identify and stop an
adversary, the less costly and damaging their actions. Employing a powerful
combination of human and artificial intelligence, FortiRecon provides
organizations with a view of what adversaries are seeing, doing and planning.
FortiRecon’s vendor agnostic SaaS delivery model combined with an intuitive
interface and easily digestible reports enable executives across the
organization to quickly understand the risks posed to their company, data, and
brand reputation, while our team of FortiGuard Labs cybersecurity experts
enhance the offering with takedown services, guidance on prioritization of
remediation efforts, and targeted threat research and intelligence.”
FortiRecon offers companies consistent and comprehensive coverage
across three areas:
Brand Protection: Enables organizations to protect their brand and identify risks to their customers. Proprietary algorithms detect web-based typo-squatting, defacements, and phishing impersonations, as well as rogue mobile apps, credential leaks, and brand impersonation on social media, all common techniques used by cyber threat actors. The early detection of malicious activity allows teams to quickly take action (such as website or application takedown) to stop and prevent damage.
Adversary-Centric Intelligence: Increases the security awareness of an organization’s SOC team with industry and geography specific coverage to better understand their attackers and protect assets. FortiGuard Labs cybersecurity experts assess the underground and imminent threat risks posed by active cybercriminals to an individual company by proactively monitoring public and private forums, open-source, dark web, and other cybercriminal domains. By engaging in human intelligence collection, FortiGuard Labs experts assess and curate custom threat intelligence, providing recommendations specific to the company, industry, and geography.
For partners, FortiRecon can be sold on top of the Fortinet Security
Fabric or as a stand-alone, vendor-agnostic solution that delivers easily
digestible reports and enables their customers to quickly understand the risks
posed to their company, data, and brand reputation. FortiRecon also extends the
categories of risk for which partners can provide insight to customers and
increases the opportunity to land new customers that have only invested in more
traditional security solutions.
