CrowdStrike introduces world's first XDR for IoT to provide comprehensive protection for IoT assets
Market leader becomes first and only cybersecurity company to bring prevention, detection and response capabilities to IoT and OT endpoints
CrowdStrike (NASDAQ: CRWD) introduces CrowdStrike Falcon Insight for IoT, the world's first and only EDR/XDR solution for Extended Internet of Things (XIoT) assets. Delivered from the CrowdStrike Falcon platform, the new offering brings CrowdStrikes renowned protection, detection and response to IoT, OT, medical devices, Industrial IoT and connected devices across the organization. As a result, customers can now secure their organizations with the same platform for XIoT, IT endpoints, cloud workloads, identities and data.
According to Gartner®, "by 2025, seventy percent of asset-intensive enterprises will have converged their security functions in both the enterprise and operational environments." With the convergence of IT-OT, there is a need for security teams to secure critical infrastructure systems. However, traditional IT security solutions do not work with XIoT assets, lack context for effective threat prevention and detection, and disrupt business operations. CrowdStrike Falcon Insight for IoT collects and leverages asset-specific context to enable tailored XIoT threat prevention policies and detection with high reliability. This enables secure digital transformation of the OT environment and mitigates threats that can cripple businesses without disrupting operations.
In addition, CrowdStrike delivers Falcon Insight for IoT:
Powerful XIoT threat detection to reduce risk: Significantly improve business continuity by identifying threats, such as ransomware and malicious file changes, by leveraging asset-specific context, such as device type and OS version.
Customized threat prevention without compromising uptime: Stop threats at the source with CrowdStrikes AI-based threat prevention. Tailored policy recommendations for XIoT assets allow organizations to reduce system load and easily manage sensor updates.
Rapid, proven response for hard-to-pattern enterprise assets: Confront threats quickly with integrated response actions, such as host/process containment and USB device control that minimize operational disruptions.
Interoperability with mission-critical XIoT assets: CrowdStrike's single lightweight agent is rigorously tested and validated by leading Industrial Control Systems (ICS) vendors for simplified deployment, interoperability and security on mission-critical XIoT assets.
Strong integrations with CrowdXDR Alliance partners and XIoT partners: Enhanced protection, detection and response with robust integrations from CrowdXDR Alliance partners, such as Claroty, in a unified console.
CrowdStrike Falcon Insight for IoT is generally available to customers.
