CrowdStrike Store continues momentum with diverse applications that bolster unified approach to security through Falcon platform
Applications from Illumio, Obsidian and SecurityAdvisor address unique security use cases that support accelerated digital transformation for hybrid workforces.
CrowdStrike (Nasdaq: CRWD), a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, today announced the addition of applications from Illumio, Obsidian and SecurityAdvisor to the CrowdStrike Store. These new applications extend the power of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform by addressing unique use cases, offering customers flexibility in determining how to further fortify their security stance to meet the needs of hybrid workforces in the new business normal without requiring any additional agents on their workloads.
As the industry’s first fully integrated security cloud ecosystem, the CrowdStrike Store provides customers a choice of strategic vendors and security technologies managed through a single cloud platform, custom-built for the enterprise. These new integrations leverage the power and scale of the Falcon platform to solve for diverse business-critical use cases, including an endpoint segmentation solution to stop malware and ransomware propagation, security visibility for software as a service (SaaS) applications, and personalised contextual security awareness training. Customers can seamlessly trial and subsequently deploy these new applications through the CrowdStrike Store, further leveraging their investment in the Falcon platform.
“As organisations adjust their business processes to support hybrid workforces, they are conscious of cost and looking for flexibility that allows them to securely support their ongoing digital transformation needs,” said Andy Horwitz, vice-president of CrowdStrike Store Business. “The CrowdStrike Store delivers native integrations from trusted security technology partners that leverage both the scale and telemetry of the CrowdStrike security cloud. This allows the applications to deliver faster, smarter, and more effective solutions. With the addition of these integrations from Illumio, Obsidian and SecurityAdvisor, customers have the opportunity to further maximise their investment in the CrowdStrike Falcon platform and improve their security posture with third-party applications solving new and important use cases.”
The addition of these applications follows on the heels of the recently announced availability of Exabeam Ingester Analytics for CrowdStrike in the CrowdStrike Store. Exabeam Ingester for CrowdStrike provides access to endpoint telemetry in the CrowdStrike Falcon platform and enables near real-time data streaming to detect advanced threats via a pre-built connector. With Exabeam user and entity behaviour analytics (UEBA), security teams can unlock more detection use cases from their endpoint data, including lateral movement, credential compromise and data exfiltration.
The new applications from Illumio, Obsidian and SecurityAdvisors demonstrate the significant expansion of the CrowdStrike Store, which continues to grow its breadth of partners and the security use cases served. Following are details on the new applications:
- Illumio Edge for CrowdStrike – Illumio has partnered with CrowdStrike to offer Illumio Edge for CrowdStrike, an endpoint segmentation solution that reduces the risk of ransomware and malware propagating laterally throughout an organisation. Fully managed in the cloud, customers can enable this new offering via their existing CrowdStrike Falcon agent. By automatically configuring allowed network connections and traffic on every endpoint, Illumio Edge for CrowdStrike helps organisations better secure users regardless of their location.
- Obsidian –Obsidian delivers comprehensive enterprise security for SaaS. The Obsidian cloud detection and response (CDR) solution integrates with the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to deliver unified visibility across SaaS applications and endpoints. By correlating Obsidian data about user access, privileges and activity in SaaS applications with rich endpoint telemetry from CrowdStrike endpoints, security teams can uncover, investigate and respond to breaches and insider threats quickly, without slowing down business operations.
- SecurityAdvisor –SecurityAdvisor provides just-in-time automated, targeted cyber security micro-lessons to end-users when a security incident occurs. SecurityAdvisor integrates its cloud-delivered SaaS platform with the Falcon platform and intelligently identifies teachable moments when an incident occurs, delivering relevant, real-time lessons over multiple communication channels to the workforce, helping build a culture of cyber immunity organisation-wide.
Supporting partner quotes:
Andrew Rubin, Illumio co-founder and chief executive officer, said: “Lateral movement is a common characteristic of ransomware and malware attacks, turning a single infection into a massively disruptive, headline-breaking incident in minutes. Illumio Edge extends Zero Trust to the endpoint with containment by default to prevent the propagation of ransomware and malware. This ensures the first endpoint infected is always the last endpoint infected. With easy deployment through the CrowdStrike agent, together we deliver the most complete threat prevention offering on the market today.”
Glenn Chisholm, co-founder and chief executive officer of Obsidian, said: “The tremendous growth of endpoint devices and rapid cloud adoption are the two biggest drivers of digital transformation over the past decade, enhancing agility and enabling organisations to focus on their core mission. Internet-connected endpoint devices and cloud applications now have access to business-critical data, leading to an increase in attacks targeting these assets. Integrating the industry’s first cloud detection and response (CDR) solution from Obsidian with a leading endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution from CrowdStrike delivers seamless visibility across users’ devices and cloud accounts, and enables joint customers to detect, investigate and remediate attacks.”
Sai Venkataraman, co-founder and chief executive officer at SecurityAdvisor: “Human actions are responsible for >90% of security breaches and security teams struggle to engage and build security awareness programmes that actually work. We are excited to partner with CrowdStrike to launch our next-generation security awareness offering. By leveraging CrowdStrike’s detections, we can automate and personalise security awareness for our joint customers and also reduce security risk in a measurable way that was not previously possible. This allows our joint customers to fortify every employee, take away the hours spent on annual security training, and build an organisation-wide secure culture.”
Nir Polak, co-founder and chief executive officer at Exabeam: “The Exabeam Ingester for CrowdStrike highlights our commitment to CrowdStrike and Exabeam customers to help them unlock the power of their rich endpoint data with behaviour analytics. With a simple free trial in Exabeam’s cloud, this is the perfect tool for customers to use Exabeam’s behaviour analytics to add value to their threat detection use cases.”
