CrowdStrike Introduces CrowdStream to Accelerate and Simplify XDR Adoption

Powered by Cribl, a CrowdStrike Falcon Fund partner, and free to CrowdStrike Falcon platform customers

AUSTIN, Texas and RSA Conference 2023, SAN FRANCISCO, April 24, 2023 – CrowdStrike (Nasdaq: CRWD) today introduced CrowdStream, powered by open observability company Cribl. CrowdStream is designed to transform how customers can get any data, from any security or IT source, directly into the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to solve XDR, log management and AI-based analytics challenges in a rapid, cost-effective way. CrowdStream, a new native platform capability, will be available at no additional cost for the first 10GB of streaming data to new and existing CrowdStrike Falcon platform customers.

Organizations struggle to achieve complete visibility across the security and IT data sources needed to stop increasingly sophisticated adversaries. Collecting and routing siloed data – for all sources – creates a heavy burden of complexity and cost, especially as data volumes continue to exponentially grow across ever-multiplying data sources.

CrowdStream is a new native platform capability that directly connects any data source into the CrowdStrike Falcon platform using Cribl’s observability pipeline technology. By sitting between data sources and their destination, CrowdStream provides an elegant, fast and cost-effective way to get data into the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to greatly accelerate the adoption of XDR and log management, as well as aggregating the required data to train advanced AI/ML models.

CrowdStream transforms an organization’s ability to:

  • Easily connect and route data from any source into the CrowdStrike Falcon platform, as well as minimizing the complexity and cost of connecting data sources.
  • Unify data within the CrowdStrike Falcon platform for near-instant search at petabyte scale to provide the rich visibility and aggregated data needed to eliminate threats, run deep analytics and hunt for adversaries.
  • Cut log management costs by sending the right data (and only the right data) to CrowdStrike Falcon LogScale. Recently, a large financial institution switched to CrowdStrike Falcon LogScale and saved up to $5 million dollars over three years in infrastructure and licensing costs.
  • Consolidate point products by centralizing and normalizing data within the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to continuously address new security and IT use cases with fully integrated capabilities built on a unified data model.

“Cybersecurity is fundamentally a data problem. Today’s adversary techniques are growing more sophisticated including the use of initial access, lateral movement, privilege escalation, defense evasion and data extortion. However, organizations are still struggling to effectively and efficiently collect the right data from a variety of security and IT point products they deploy to root out and shut down threats from adversaries,” said Daniel Bernard, chief business officer at CrowdStrike. “For organizations to stay ahead of these threats, it is imperative they have real-time visibility and data at their fingertips. We see the CrowdStream technology as a game-changer that significantly improves our customers’ ability to get the right data, from any source, directly into the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to solve the hardest security and IT challenges in an elegant, cost-effective way.”

“Cribl is a proud CrowdStrike Falcon Fund partner, as we were one of CrowdStrike’s first investments. We see this expanded strategic partnership with CrowdStrike as another step to solving the massive data problem that cybersecurity teams face today,” said Abby Strong, senior vice president, customer experience and marketing, Cribl. “By making the process of data collection for the CrowdStrike Falcon platform easier, CrowdStream will revolutionize the way that organizations quickly gain value from XDR and log management.”

CrowdStream will be generally available for customers by June 2023.
