CrowdStrike Adds EASM Capabilities
Reposify enables CrowdStrike to provide “a fundamentally differentiated EASM experience to customers,” the companies said.
CrowdStrike will integrate Reposify’s EASM capabilities into its Threat Intelligence product suite, the company noted. In doing so, organizations will be able to use Reposify’s internet scanning capabilities in conjunction with CrowdStrike’s Threat Intelligence products to capture insights on endpoints and IT environments and analyze risks across their internal and external attack surfaces.
In addition, CrowdStrike will leverage Reposify’s EASM capabilities to bolster its Security and IT Operations product suite, the company said. This will allow organizations to use CrowdStrike’s Security and IT Operations products to analyze risks across their internal and external attack surfaces and network devices, end-users and applications.
