Threat recon FAQs

In cyber security, threat reconnaissance is the process of collecting, analyzing, and reporting on information about cyber threats that could put your organisation at risk. This will usually involve gathering data from multiple sources to identify threats that are currently happening, or to highlight issues that may be a risk in the future.

Our threat recon tools provide scanning for multiple domains as part of the Defense.com™ platform.

You can run a Threat Recon scan on your web domain(s) as many times as you like. We’d recommend doing this on a regular basis to check for new threats from your external attack surface, particularly if your environment has changed.

External attack surface management, or EASM for short, refers to the practice of understanding and managing threats that arise from internet-facing systems. These systems could include software and assets from third party vendors, public cloud environments and any other assets that are hosted outside of your firewall.
