Endpoint Protection and Threat Intelligence: The Way Forward [VIDEO]

I’m excited to tell you about CrowdStrike’s 2018 Summer Release, in particular, how we’ve expanded our automated threat intelligence solution, Falcon X™, adding more contextualized and tailored threat intelligence capabilities than ever before. I’m also very proud of the fact that CrowdStrike® is the first company to truly integrate threat intelligence and endpoint protection. This has been our vision since the inception of the company. Combining the protective capabilities of endpoint security with the predictive capabilities of threat intelligence is the key to stopping breaches and that’s exactly what the Falcon platform does for our customers.

In this video, I discuss the importance of automating threat intelligence and its role in ensuring proactive cybersecurity that can actually prevent and predict future attacks, helping our customers stay one step ahead of the adversary. By baking-in threat intelligence, as well as our automated malware analysis, our customers are given a much more complete picture of what is happening across their endpoints, what’s been prevented and more importantly, who is behind the attack. In fact, this adversary-centric approach is why Falcon X is able to deliver threat intelligence that allows CrowdStrike to associate the adversary activity observed globally, with what is seen on our customers’ endpoints or in malware, and track that back to known threat actors. In addition, the level of automated threat intelligence Falcon X provides dramatically speeds triage and remediation — literally, cutting it from hours to minutes.

The ability for a customer to actually predict and therefore, prevent, a future attack is a tremendous game-changer in our industry and it is why we focused so much on building the best intelligence team on the planet.  We knew from the beginning that automating and integrating threat intelligence with endpoint protection was going to profoundly transform cybersecurity and more importantly, protect our customers on a global scale. The fact that we can now offer our vision as a reality is an accomplishment of immense proportions. This continued expansion of the Falcon platform highlights how CrowdStrike delivers in every functional area of the adaptive security model recommended by Gartner and supported by other thought leaders in our industry. These functional areas are: prevent, detect, respond and predict. Falcon Endpoint Protection provides industry-leading prevention, detection and response capabilities and with the addition of Falcon X, we are the first and only endpoint protection solution to deliver on the predictive component.

It’s also very gratifying to know that the predictive capabilities delivered by Falcon X automated threat intelligence can benefit any size organization, from the largest enterprise with its own 24/7 security operations centers (SOCs) to small and mid-sized companies that don’t have dedicated SOCs. With Falcon X, any organization can elevate its security posture instantly.
