CrowdStrike Falcon Delivers Critical Endpoint Protection for Cloud Workloads Running on Amazon Web Services
CrowdStrike Falcon is now integrated with newly launched AWS Security Hub
Sunnyvale, CA — November 28, 2018 — CrowdStrike® Inc., a proven provider in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, announced today at AWS re:Invent 2018 that CrowdStrike Falcon® is an Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) Partner Network (APN) Launch Partner for the new AWS Security Hub.
With threat telemetry at scale, processing over 1 trillion events a week, CrowdStrike Falcon is an effective tool designed for threat detection and response across a variety of endpoints. CrowdStrike Falcon, built natively on the cloud, is designed to also natively provide protection for the cloud, leveraging both artificial intelligence (AI) and behavioral-based detections. With integrated threat analysis, CrowdStrike Falcon provides a combination of intelligence and security alerts to accelerate incident response, deliver enriched context, streamline the investigative process and drive more accurate security responses.
For years, organizations have struggled to effectively combine the capabilities of their SOCs with those of the cloud security teams and close the gaps in point products that are unable to visualize threats and compliance issues in cloud workloads. CrowdStrike provides a comprehensive solution designed to further enhance the security of workloads running on the already secure AWS, and address the compliance needs of DevSecOps teams using AWS Security Hub. Customers are able to leverage CrowdStrike Falcon as their security tool for workloads running on AWS and, combined with AWS Security Hub, allow for centralized and automated management of threat alerts from AWS services.
AWS Security Hub is designed to provide users with a comprehensive view of their high-priority security alerts and compliance status by aggregating, organizing, and prioritizing alerts or findings from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, and Amazon Macie as well as from APN security solutions. The findings are then visually summarized on integrated dashboards with actionable graphs and tables.
“Organizations often struggle to simplify the management of their security tools, while increasing their abilities to cross-leverage capabilities between their security operations teams and the cloud security teams. CrowdStrike Falcon was built from the ground up as an open platform that enables rich integrations with services like AWS Security Hub. With today’s announcement, CrowdStrike allows customers to see and manage the security of workloads running on AWS through AWS Security Hub while benefiting from the native cloud protection provided by CrowdStrike Falcon with no installations or additional management needed,” said Amol Kulkarni, chief product officer of CrowdStrike.
“We are excited to have CrowdStrike as an APN Launch Partner for AWS Security Hub,” said Dan Plastina, vice president, Security Services, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “They continue to apply their technology to help customers advance and streamline security operations and expand the capabilities of security cloud teams. We look forward to continuing to empower CrowdStrike to offer customers enhanced security capabilities with seamless integrations.”
With open APIs, the CrowdStrike Falcon platform is designed to easily integrate with solution providers to enhance value to customers. This is the latest in a series of high-quality offerings that extend the access to CrowdStrike Falcon. Earlier this year, CrowdStrike announced the availability of Falcon Discover on AWS, a solution integrated in Falcon Discover™ that delivers proven IT cloud hygiene features across workloads running on AWS, allowing for advanced visibility into Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). CrowdStrike recently earned AWS Security Competency status, validating the value Falcon Discover provides on AWS to security operations teams for customers with workloads running on AWS like Pokémon Company International.
CrowdStrike is the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection. Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform offers instant visibility and protection across the enterprise and prevents attacks on endpoints on or off the network. CrowdStrike Falcon deploys in minutes to deliver actionable intelligence and real-time protection from Day One. It seamlessly unifies next-generation AV with best-in-class endpoint detection and response, backed by 24/7 managed hunting.
