CrowdStrike’s Falcon XDR


CrowdStrike Holdings has announced the general availability of its Falcon XDR module.

“One of the ways to address the cybersecurity skills gap is to empower security teams to work more effectively,” said Amol Kulkarni, chief product and engineering officer at CrowdStrike. “Falcon XDR helps to address this problem by correlating weak, siloed threat signals into prioritized alerts from a centralized console for security teams to ensure their investigations are meaningful and efficient.”

“CrowdStrike have spent years building and refining their detection and response automation capabilities,” said Dave Gruber, principal analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).

“As market interest in XDR continues to accelerate, CrowdStrike is well-positioned to expand into XDR, capitalizing on their existing, mature and scalable EDR infrastructure, as they invest in new data ingest, analysis and advanced threat detection capabilities required to respond to a more sophisticated threat landscape. CrowdStrike’s alliance-driven XDR strategy should enable them to readily ingest telemetry from a broad range of third-party security solutions into their Security Cloud, offering security teams flexibility in their choice of other core security controls.”
