Re: Falcon
I have first hand daily use knowledge of Falcon, beginning with a successful POC last year resulting in enterprise rollout (which I'm in the middle of now). Seeing it in action in my own environment, I'm a believer. The behavior monitoring discussed in the presentation is indeed impressive and valuable, but there's more to it than that. The capture in real time and storage of every execution, command line entry, file system write of executables (and lots more) plus the interface to easily query against all of that data has been key already to many of the troublesome daily investigations that incident responders have to do. Sometimes (all the time?) network based detectors don't give you the whole story. That said, it's not a completely mature product yet. They've spent their time focusing on the core functions, finding the bad, stopping it, and not failing silently (I.e., when they don't highlight on some activity as an active alert, the data is still there in the system to find it...think Network Flight Recorder for the endpoint). There are upcoming functions that they're working on that will make the product better that aren't yet implemented. That said, they're going in the right directions with those.

Falcon
I have seen a demo of this Falcon tool firsthand, and I can attest to its impressiveness. As the article denotes, this endpoint tool was able to detect these types of intrusions in real time. It can be employed with the typical base OS types. Windows, Apple, Linux excluded I believe. As well as mobile devices that have similar architecture such as the Surface Tablet. However, I have not experienced any organizations I have been employed at use it.


Does anyone in this community have firsthand experience with Falcon on a daily basis? What do you think of the tool? Pros/Cons

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
