Securing the Application Lifecycle with Scale and Speed: Achieving Holistic Workload Security with CrowdStrike and Nutanix
November 22, 2021Fiona Ing Endpoint & Cloud Security
With virtualization in the data center and further adoption of cloud infrastructure, it’s no wonder why IT, DevOps and security teams grapple with new and evolving security challenges. An increase in virtualized applications and desktops have caused organizations’ attack surfaces to expand quickly, enabling highly sophisticated attackers to take advantage of the minimal visibility and control these teams hold.
The question remains: How can your organization secure your production environments and cloud workloads to ensure that you can build and run apps at speed and with confidence? The answer: CrowdStrike Falcon® on the Nutanix Cloud Platform.
Delivered through CrowdStrike’s single lightweight Falcon agent, your team is enabled to take an adversary-focused approach when securing your Nutanix cloud workloads — all without impacting performance. With scalable and holistic security, your team can achieve comprehensive workload protection and visibility across virtual environments to meet compliance requirements and prevent breaches effectively and efficiently.
Secure All of Your Cloud Workloads with CrowdStrike and Nutanix
By extending CrowdStrike’s world-class security capabilities into the Nutanix Cloud Platform, you can prevent attacks on virtualized workloads and endpoints on or off the network. The Nutanix-validated, cloud-native Falcon sensor enhances Nutanix’s native security posture for workloads running on Nutanix AHV without compromising your team’s output. By extending CrowdStrike protection to Nutanix deployments, including virtual machines and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), you get scalable and comprehensive workload and container breach protection to streamline operations and optimize performance.
CrowdStrike and Nutanix provide your DevOps and Security teams with layered security, so they can build, run and secure applications with confidence at every stage of the application lifecycle.
