CrowdStrike® Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, today announced that the company has expanded the capabilities of the Falcon X ™ module by launching a Premium version. Falcon X Premium broadens the scope of the Falcon X offering to add intelligence reports with global Indicators of Compromise (IoCs), intelligence support, custom malware analysis, and all Falcon Intelligence™ APIs. With this release, CrowdStrike further advances the most effective application of threat intelligence research and reporting in the industry to equip security teams with automated and contextualized intelligence as part of the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform.
Cybersecurity teams can now automatically analyze malware found on endpoints, find related samples from the industry’s largest malware search engine, and enrich the results with CrowdStrike’s cyber threat intelligence. This closed-loop system provides customers with global IoCs along with intelligence reporting to give a richer, more complete picture of an attack. With a full understanding of potential and incoming threats, security teams are empowered to respond faster and orchestrate proactive countermeasures across their organization.
As Gartner states, “by 2021, endpoint protection platforms (EPPs) will provide automated, orchestrated incident investigation and breach response.” Falcon X Premium makes this prediction a reality by combining automated intelligence and human analysis to provide unprecedented tailored intelligence, threat alerts, technical reports, customized malware analysis, intelligence orchestration, and an expert team of intelligence advisors.
With this offering, CrowdStrike equips customers with the required intelligence, processes, and technology to empower security teams, regardless of their size or sophistication, to learn from the attacks in their environment and apply that knowledge to proactively prevent future attacks.
“CrowdStrike’s vision has always been to marry the strategic benefits of threat intelligence with the usability and simplicity of our endpoint protection platform to deliver the most effective breach prevention solution on the market,” said George Kurtz, CrowdStrike’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “Since the onset of the company, we’ve been at the forefront of threat intelligence and the leader in modern endpoint protection, positioning us uniquely to offer our customers advanced threat intelligence automation and management at scale.”
“CrowdStrike’s integration of contextualized threat intelligence helps us secure our most valuable data and has enabled our security team with the ability to speed up response and incident investigations, enabling us to move from a reactive state to a proactive one,” said Nathan Hunstad, director of security operations, Code42. “Falcon X has empowered us with the critical intelligence necessary to get ahead of known and unknown threats.”
The elite CrowdStrike Intelligence™ team that tracks over 110 adversary groups, analyzing their behavior and tradecraft to detect existing and emerging threats.
