CrowdStrike Adds More Strategic Partners to CrowdXDR Alliance

CrowdXDR Alliance is an open coalition that brings superior integrated solutions together

CrowdStrike has expanded the CrowdXDR Alliance to include key strategic partners across technology categories, including cloud, Internet of Things (IoT) and network.

The new partnerships aim to deliver deep integrations that support broader set of security telemetry, delivering powerful insights that allow customers to identify and hunt threats at an accelerated speed and scale. This enhances productivity while solving for the security skills gap issues faced by most organizations.

First announced at CrowdStrike’s Fal.Con 2021, CrowdXDR Alliance is an open coalition that brings superior integrated solutions together to deliver Extended Detection and Response (XDR) with comprehensive visibility, protection and control across business entities. The alliance is trying to establish a standardized schema for data sharing and exchange to enrich Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) data with relevant, vendor-specific security telemetry – creating fast and effective threat detection and response capabilities built at scale with security telemetry correlated from a broad range of first and third-party sources across the technology ecosystem.

Michael Sentonas, Chief Technology Officer at CrowdStrike, said, “The power of the CrowdXDR Alliance is in the commitment to open and unified data sharing amongst our partners across technologies that will further enrich EDR data and solve the gaps in existing legacy and next-gen tools across investigation, threat hunting and response capabilities.”

“We established this community-driven approach to further extend partner value and deliver customers a holistic and simpler view of threats across the entire technology landscape to enable them to act with speed and precision. With the CrowdXDR Alliance, CrowdStrike is defining the standard for what XDR technology should be,” added Sentonas.

The latest addition to the CrowdXDR Alliance, Cloudflare, Armis and ThreatWarrior will join a galaxy of previously announced CrowdXDR Alliance partners including Google Cloud, Okta, ServiceNow, Zscaler, Netskope, Proofpoint, Extrahop, Mimecast, Claroty and Corelight. CrowdStrike and the CrowdXDR Alliance partners will aim to deliver.

John Graham-Cumming, chief technology officer at Cloudflare, said, “Defending against today’s threat environment requires observing every request, from every user, across every device on the distributed corporate network. Cloudflare’s global network spans more than 250 cities in over 100 countries, blocking an average of 76 billion cyber threats each day. This provides customers with unparalleled insights, helping security teams better protect their organization. By joining the CrowdXDR Alliance, we’ll be able to combine Cloudflare’s global network with CrowdStrike’s leading endpoint protection to help mutual customers stop cyberattacks anywhere in their network.”

“Lack of visibility of unmanaged assets presents a significant gap in security strategy. We are excited to join the CrowdXDR Alliance to provide unmatched visibility and security. Through our integration, which combines device details from Falcon sensors with device details gathered by Armis, we are able to deliver a comprehensive view of every managed and unmanaged asset in the customer’s environment,” said Nadir Izrael, chief technology officer and co-founder at Armis.
