For additional security of user accounts, Falcon offers the option of two-factor authentication (2FA). This can be done using a TOTP Authenticator app or by sending a HOTP via SMS or email. If unauthorized persons gain access to a password, 2FA offers additional protection. Once this feature is enabled, users are required to enter a verification code when logging in to confirm their identity. In the security settings of a hub, there is also the option to make 2FA mandatory for all users instead of voluntary.
Our Intrusion Detection (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) specialize in monitoring Falcon's network and systems for malicious activity and screening suspicious content. Using heuristics-based network flow monitoring and integrated protection mechanisms against common and frequent DDoS attacks, we ensure the resilience of our IT systems against potential threats. To effectively protect against flooding or breadth-first attacks, Falcon determines how many times an action can be repeated within a certain time frame. This applies, for example, to attempts to log in to an account and is ensured through the use of API rate limiting and login throttling. This means that our systems are optimally prepared for possible attacks and offer reliable protection.
Falcon applies a security policy in which all incoming data and information is initially considered potentially unsafe. These values are validated on the server side, where they are checked for cross-site scripting and filtered accordingly. In addition, all uploaded files are automatically scanned by Falcon's antivirus service for the presence of malware and other threats. This means you can always rely on this and download files from Falcon without worrying. In addition, a Web Application Firewall (WAF) provides additional protection against common Internet threats as well as bots that could jeopardize availability or security and overuse resources.
