CrowdStrike has integrated external attack surface management (EASM) technology into its Falcon platform, according to a prepared statement.

The company also has announced that the CrowdStrike Falcon Surface standalone module is equipped with capabilities from EASM platform provider Reposify. CrowdStrike previously acquired Reposify in September 2022.

Flying with CrowdStrike Falcon

Organizations can use Falcon with EASM technology to get insights into external adversary activity, CrowdStrike said. The technology works in conjunction with the CrowdStrike Falcon Intelligence Recon digital protection solution to help organizations monitor cybercrime activity across the dark web.

In addition, organizations can use EASM technology with the CrowdStrike Falcon Discover network security monitoring solution and CrowdStrike Falcon Spotlight vulnerability management solution to monitor their internal and external attack surfaces.

Meanwhile, Falcon Surface provides organizations with insights into their exposed assets and security posture, CrowdStrike noted. The solution delivers custom security alerts to help organizations stay up to date on cyberattacks and data breaches. Falcon Surface includes an "optimizer" that automatically suggests remediation steps that organizations can use to combat security risks.

CrowdStrike Falcon Surface and the integration with CrowdStrike Falcon Intelligence Recon are now available. Integrations with CrowdStrike Falcon Spotlight and CrowdStrike Falcon Discover are expected to be released in the second half of 2023.

CrowdStrike Offers Powered Service Provider Program for MSSPs & MDR Providers

The Falcon enhancements come after CrowdStrike in September 2022 launched CPSP to help MSSPs and managed detection and response (MDR) providers utilize Falcon. CPSP enables channel partners to deliver identity protection, threat intelligence and other Falcon-based cybersecurity solutions, CrowdStrike said.

CrowdStrike reported $580.9 million in total revenue in the third quarter of 2022, which represented a 53% year-over-year increase. The company appeared to be in growth mode as of mid-2022 and may continue to explore opportunities to enhance Falcon and expand its channel partnerships.
