CrowdStrike expands CrowdXDR Alliance with three new partners

By Catherine Knowles
Fri 24 Dec 2021

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

According to the company, the aim of the new partnerships is to deliver deep integrations that support CrowdStrike's set of security telemetry, delivering insights that allow customers to identify and hunt threats at an accelerated speed and scale.

First announced at CrowdStrike’s Fal.Con 2021 event, the CrowdXDR Alliance is a unified and open coalition that brings integrated solutions together to deliver Extended Detection and Response (XDR) with comprehensive visibility, protection and control across business entities.

Jointly with CrowdStrike partners, the CrowdXDR Alliance is focused on establishing a standardised schema for data sharing and exchange to enrich Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) data with relevant, vendor-specific security telemetry.

Cloudflare, Armis and ThreatWarrior are the latest partners to join the CrowdXDR Alliance. They join previously announced CrowdXDR Alliance partners including Google Cloud, Okta, ServiceNow, Zscaler, Netskope, Proofpoint, Extrahop, Mimecast, Claroty and Corelight.

CrowdStrike chief technology officer Michael Sentonas says, “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.”

According to the company, CrowdStrike and the CrowdXDR Alliance partners will aim to deliver productivity gains at accelerated speed and scale, extended visibility and control across all environments, and improved value in existing investments.

The new partners commented on the announcement and their perspective of the current threat landscape.

Cloudflare chief technology officer John Graham-Cumming says, “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 organisation.

"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.”

Armis chief technology officer and co-founder Nadir Izrael says, “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.”

ThreatWarrior senior vice president of Product and Strategic Alliances Rob Lancaster says, “Cybersecurity teams face a growing number of challenges as attackers become more sophisticated.

"They need complete visibility into network activity and real-time threat intelligence to combat these malicious threats.

"We are proud to work with CrowdStrike to extend detection and response capabilities across every infrastructure and provide customers the tools they need to stop threats faster.”
