We have a very good knowledge of the product and the Record Future team - they are very attentive and extremely careful with product rides, training, and customer service. The product/service itself is easy to use, customizable, and we love that it runs the gamut of resources - like a DDW stand-alone store, open-source, and everything in between.
  • I like that the product takes a lot of hard work of researching on it, so I can just flip through the information card for anything that might be a concern. And I’m a fan of how you can go down to see all the data that leads them to be assertive in order to determine if a character or site is cruel.
  • The product/service itself is a DDW stand-alone store, open-source, and all-inclusive. We also enjoy customer service from retaliators assigned to our account.
  • It is very easy to get a general idea of ​​what is happening in the world. Having a dedicated analyst is also good, and it does an excellent job.
  • If we have to do an in-depth analysis we need a good knowledge of the search queries to get the right information. Email notifications are sometimes too loud and unwanted. RF is more expensive compared to other tools.
  • Sometimes the volume of notifications can be [high], adjusting the tool takes time.
  • The costs associated with the tool are sometimes not cheap depending on small businesses to start using the platform. The UX design can always be a little better.
Recorded Future [is] an amazing tool for threatening intelligence that can provide all the information of emerging threats, attackers, APT teams and everything security experts want. The dashboard is very nice and easy to understand. Threatening feeds are regularly updated. All information collected by a recorded future is so well organized that we can easily analyze it. It is a very useful tool for threatening advice and the purpose of product monitoring. We can add the watch lists we want to watch. Product monitoring helps to scan data from online social media and detect data leaks.

Recorded Future is being utilized by SOC analysts as a threat intel. Since our company offers SOC services among our clients, Recorded Future has been advantageous to us in processing artifacts and identifying possible threats in a short period of time.
  • Gives latest threat reports regarding an artifact (IP, domain or hash).
  • Browser extension provides a real-time information about an artifact.
  • Accurate in identifying malicious domains and IPs.
  • For the Browser extension, since the main purpose is to present information with regards to the IP, I think it's best to give us an idea of where the IP originated/some additional information about the organization it belongs to.
Recorded Future is mainly beneficial to the SOC. As part of the Monitoring team, Recorded Future makes the investigation of the alarms a lot easier for me. It can show the reputation of the IP/domain or even hashes which helps me redirect my focus to potentially malicious network activities.

We mainly use RF for our brand-monitoring, to maintain our reputation and for monitoring partner companies. They offer scanning of a wide range of the internet, be it public sources like various pastebins, github, or social media, as well as forums on the darknet. This helps identifying if any company assets have been leaked (by employees unintentionally as well as through potential fraudsters). Additionally it helps us with identifying the severity of vulnerabilities by assessing how many POCs are available or how often certain vulnerabilities are mentioned in related channels.
  • Everything they find is also available in their own cache. So for example if a pastebin expired, you can still view it later on.
  • The risk score of vulnerabilities shows actual malicious activity. Image the CVS-Score is medium, but there is a lot of exploit chatter, you want to prioritize fixing this vulnerability.
  • Their watchlists are easy to set up and offer monitoring your tech-stack, peers, persons of special interest, etc.
  • E-Mail reports can show unrelated content, especially sometimes you'll see alerts popping up for articles which have been published years ago but for some reason were just recently discovered by RF.
  • Yara rules from their insikt blog sometimes are not syntactically correct and need to be manually edited to actually work. There's some proper QA missing.
  • Their global and 3rd party risk reports could be more tailored towards the industries of their client. There is entries for totally unrelated security incidents. Of course a global list aims to find incidents on a global view, but it doesn't add much value at that point.
If you need to know who talks about your company, if it maybe even is a target you should consider using RF. As my company is providing services for resellers, we are also concerned about which customers these resellers attract as they can impact other customers using our shared infrastructure. Evaluating risk of partners or of products is another feature I'm using here.
So far it didn't help much identifying the reputation of IP-addresses, that's probably also due to the nature of my requests which are not necessarily covered by RF.
I've had an issue with their browser-plugin which didn't want to authenticate correctly. RF's support could arrange for a session with me and identify and solve the issue. I was very pleased how serious they took my problems and also how knowledgeable they are.
If I have more general questions they quickly reply and most likely also have a solution at hand.
