CrowdStrike Expands Routes to Market for CrowdStrike Services with AWS Marketplace
CrowdStrike Cloud Security and IT Hygiene Services Available from the Newly Launched Professional Services in AWS Marketplace
SUNNYVALE, Calif. and AWS re:Invent – December 3, 2020 – CrowdStrike, a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint and cloud workload protection, today announced that it is participating in the launch of Professional Services in AWS Marketplace. Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers can purchase cloud and IT hygiene readiness assessments and pen testing exercises from CrowdStrike Services in AWS Marketplace that will enhance the security of their cloud initiatives and improve the state of their IT environment in support of their digital transformation journey.
AWS Marketplace is a curated digital catalog of software, data, and services that makes it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software and data products that run on AWS. As a participant in the launch of the professional services available in AWS Marketplace, CrowdStrike is one of the first cybersecurity vendors to quote and contract services to help customers manage and improve security of their cloud and endpoint environments. It is now easier than ever for customers to access and procure CrowdStrike Services to enhance their security posture with actionable insight into cloud security misconfigurations and weak policy settings that could leave their cloud environment exposed to targeted attacks.
Leveraging the CrowdStrike Services Cloud Security Assessment, IT Hygiene Assessment and Red Team / Blue Team Exercise offerings, customers will have the ability to improve cloud security settings, identify unprotected devices, missing patches and other critical vulnerabilities across their network, as well as experience a simulated targeted attack from a real-world threat actor to learn best practices to defend their organization against today’s sophisticated threat activity.
“AWS has been playing a key role in supporting our mission of stopping breaches. With today’s launch we are able to offer our customers impactful solutions to address the challenges associated with the acceleration of infrastructure and workloads to a distributed work environment,” said Thomas Etheridge, Senior Vice President of Global Services at CrowdStrike. “Security is an essential component of any digital transformation plan and being able to access services that enable workload protection is critical for the successful implementation of those plans.”
The following three CrowdStrike Services offerings are initially available in AWS Marketplace:
- Cloud Security Assessment – Provides an evaluation of cloud-based systems to drive actionable insights into possible security misconfigurations and deviations from recommended cloud security architecture and help organizations identify vulnerabilities that could lead to cloud security breaches.
- IT Hygiene Assessment – Identifies vulnerabilities in an organization’s IT environment providing visibility of missing patches, unprotected devices and weak security settings so organizations can proactively safeguard their environment before a breach occurs.
- Red Team / Blue Team Exercise – Simulates a targeted attack by a real-world threat actor using the CrowdStrike red team of ethical hackers to obtain an accurate view of how prepared organizations are to defend against a sophisticated attack. Meanwhile, the CrowdStrike blue team, consisting of incident response professionals, will sit alongside your teams to highlight mechanisms to detect and respond to the attack as it unfolds.
In addition to these service offerings, CrowdStrike, a pioneer of the security cloud, recently announced an integration for the AWS Network Firewall and an Amazon Linux 2 Ready designation. CrowdStrike has also announced expanded support for AWS Workloads and Container Deployments, including compute services AWS Graviton, Amazon WorkSpaces and Bottlerocket, and cloud services AWS PrivateLink and AWS Control Tower. Additionally, CrowdStrike introduced Falcon Horizon and Falcon for AWS, which provides cloud security posture management and cloud workload protection, an integration with Amazon GuardDuty, which protects against vulnerabilities, malicious activity, and unauthorized behavior, and participated in the launch of AWS Security Hub. CrowdStrike is an AWS Advanced Technology Partner that has achieved AWS Security Competency status and is available in AWS Marketplace.
