CrowdStrike Adds New Partners to its XDR Alliance

CrowdStrike has just announced the expansion of its CrowdXDR Alliance – a unified and open partnership designed to deliver Extended Detection and Response (XDR) technology, which is to include partners across technology categories, including cloud, Internet of Things (IoT) and network.

The latest added partners which include Cloudflare, Armis and ThreatWarrior are expected to deliver integrations that support the industry’s broadest set of security telemetry, insights that allow customers identify and hunt threats at an accelerated speed and scale, as well as to enhance productivity while solving for the security skills gap issues that most organizations are facing.

“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,” said Michael Sentonas, chief technology officer at CrowdStrike.

“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.”

As announced, CrowdStrike and the CrowdXDR Alliance partners including both the new and the old, will aim to deliver productivity gains at accelerated speed and scale, extended visibility and control across all environments as well as improved value in existing investments.

“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 organization. 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 cyber-attacks anywhere in their network,” said John Graham-Cumming, chief technology officer at Cloudflare.

First announced at CrowdStrike’s Fal.Con 2021 event, the CrowdXDR Alliance’s previously announced partners include Google Cloud, Okta, ServiceNow, Zscaler, Netskope, Proofpoint, Extrahop, Mimecast, Claroty and Corelight.
