CrowdStrike launches Falcon X Premium offering

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 states1, "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.

CrowdStrike continues to set the new standard in endpoint protection
through its innovative AI-enabled, cloud-native platform. It both
delivers and unifies IT Hygiene, next-generation antivirus, endpoint
detection and response (EDR), managed threat hunting, vulnerability
management and threat intelligence — all delivered via a single
lightweight agent.

Through leveraging the power of the cloud, CrowdStrike is the only
security company that offers a free trial of its antivirus replacement
solution, CrowdStrike
Falcon Prevent™
, enabling immediate deployments at any time,
anywhere.
