Introducing RECON: Leading Edge Technology from the Experts You Trust
It’s crucial that incident response, and your breach response team, moves at the speed of your business. Building upon decades of cyber experience, we have created an innovative forensic triage tool, RECON. This rapid triage and response technology isn’t an EDR. It’s a revolutionary, proprietary tool that enables our elite responders to get to ground-truth faster and more effectively than other leading solutions. RECON enables BreachQuest’s team to analyze a breach quickly following a cyber incident, and then to vigorously neutralize threats to restore normal business operations .
Using RECON, the BreachQuest team works remotely to collect forensic evidence in two ways. The first is online, through a PowerShell script or dot-net executable. The second option is offline using a zip-file dropped to disk for systems not connected to an active internet connection, without power-grabbing agents—saving you time and expense. RECON runs on live systems to extract data, package it, and send it to BreachQuest servers for parsing and analysis. Our investigators work to expose indicators of compromise in real time using cyber threat intelligence (CTI) and take proactive measures to efficiently analyze and mitigate vulnerabilities.
Access to this kind of response speed is critical. Why? Because swift incident response means faster recovery and lower breach costs. BreachQuest offers 24/7 worldwide response, using with this leading-edge technology, to springboard your incident response.

Business email compromise exploits the ubiquitous use of email to conduct business. Spoofed websites and email accounts, spearphishing emails, and malware-laden messages provide vectors of attack to gain undetected access to critical login credentials or personal identifying data. The BreachQuest team ensures the proper handling of scams targeting your company through emails to employees or the finance department to initiate wire transfers or engage suppliers abroad. Our team analyzes email and audit logs to identify the source and scope of the compromise, creates and implements a response plan, and works with the organization to train employees to detect malicious emails
An insider threat is a security breach or malicious threat attibuted to an employee, contractor, business associate, or even a former employee who might still have access to sensitive company data. BreachQuest’s investigators work to identify the source of the breach and respond efficiently to mitigate any damage done and close vulnerabilities that enabled the breach.
Malware (e.g., ransomware, viruses, worms, spyware, phishing, Trojan horses, etc.) is software designed to gain unauthorized access to systems and disrupt or damage those systems. Most attackers are a step ahead of defenders, employing the latest technologies to circumvent detection by standard antivirus software. The BreachQuest team conducts a comprehensive malware investigation to identify any possible vulnerabilities or irregulatities, providing pragmatic solutions to clean and protect your system.
Because payment card systems are often vulnerable to attack, payment card compromise is a lucrative avenue for hackers.
