Introducing CrowdStream: Simplifying XDR Adoption and Solving Security’s Data Challenge
April 21, 2023Editorial Team Observability & Log Management
Stronger together. Never has an RSA conference theme been more aligned to CrowdStrike’s mission and vision for the future.
If you look at our presence at RSAC 2023, CrowdStrike sits at the center of the security ecosystem. Everything we’re doing — from our partner breakfast to partner talks in our booth to our company announcements — highlights our commitment to bringing together the world’s best technology and data to deliver the best security outcomes.
Last week, we introduced CrowdStrike Falcon® Complete XDR, a new managed extended detection and response (MXDR) service. Based on exclusive partnerships with the broadest XDR alliance ecosystem, Falcon Complete XDR builds on the industry-leading CrowdStrike Falcon® Complete managed detection and response (MDR) service to give customers 24/7 expert-driven management, threat hunting, monitoring and end-to-end remediation across all key attack surfaces to close the cybersecurity skills gap. It all starts with the technology platform, which enables machine-speed prevention, detection and response across native and non-native CrowdStrike attack surfaces. The Falcon platform powers the technology and services XDR ecosystem.
Today, we’re announcing a new CrowdStrike Falcon® platform capability that leverages best-in-class technology to help you do more with XDR and log management.
Introducing CrowdStream, Powered by Cribl
Security, at its core, is a data problem. As log sources multiply and data volumes grow exponentially, organizations struggle to collect, enrich and correlate their security data. As a result, today’s data onboarding processes involve countless log formats and ingestion methods, resulting in deployment delays, cost overruns and employee burnout.

CrowdStream is a new, native platform capability that directly connects any data source into the Falcon platform using Cribl’s observability pipeline technology. Sitting between data sources and their destination, CrowdStream provides an elegant and cost-effective way to get data into the Falcon platform to accelerate the adoption of XDR and log management, and aggregate the data required to train advanced AI models by minimizing the complexity and cost of connecting data sources.
While other security vendors attempt to solve the data problem with integrations and parsers, CrowdStrike stands alone in offering a native platform data router, providing end-to-end solutions for a broad array of security, IT and compliance use cases.
CrowdStream will be available at no additional cost for the first 10GB of daily streaming data to new and existing Falcon platform customers. Once the capability is available, users can simply open their command console and start ingesting data the easy way. CrowdStream will be generally available for customers by June 2023.
