IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CrowdStrike Inc., a leading provider of next-generation endpoint protection, threat intelligence, and services, today announced the availability of prevention with CrowdStrike Falcon. CrowdStrike's next-generation endpoint solution detects advanced malware and adversary activity, provides contextual awareness of threats, and now also stops attacks in real time.
"CrowdStrike Falcon Host provides endpoint protection that goes far beyond our existing defense-in-depth design," said Pete Murphy, Cardinal Innovations Healthcare Solutions CIO. "There is nothing else on the market that provides both the visibility into targeted attacks and the control we demand to defend against them."
Core to the solution is CrowdStrike's Stateful Execution Inspection engine that records and evaluates every execution event linking together disparate activities to identify unknown threats. It instantly protects by identifying Indicators of Attack (IOA) rather than relying solely on signatures.
According to Gartner Inc., "A detection and response-only strategy is as flawed as a prevention-only strategy. Endpoint protection platforms need to be capable of providing preventive, detective, responsive, and predictive capabilities in one integrated solution."
CrowdStrike Falcon unifies four key defenses in one solution:
- Advanced Malware and Adversary Activity Detection: Identify attacks at the earliest point at which they impact an organization
- High-Confidence Malware Blocking and Exploit Prevention: Block zero-day attacks with ease and minimal system impact
- Integrated Threat Intelligence for Context and Priority: Gain insight and prioritize activity that requires immediate attention
- Real-time Access and Search of Endpoint Activity: Reduce the time to resolve an incident by searching for Indicators of Compromise (IOC) across all historical endpoint data and getting an immediate response
"Today customers are forced to deploy multiple agents to provide visibility, prevention, and forensics," said Dave Cole, Chief Product Officer of CrowdStrike. "Now, with CrowdStrike Falcon, organizations can reduce agent fatigue by deploying one sensor that provides complete endpoint protection and visibility."
