The pair says it wants to converge endpoint management and endpoint security for companies that possess limited resources combat cyber threats efficiently and in real time.
The CrowdStrike Falcon platform “seamlessly” integrates next-generation AV, EDR, managed threat hunting, threat intelligence and IT hygiene – powered through the cloud via a single lightweight agent.
The idea is that customers can prevent and detect never before seen threats and tailor security responses based on the severity of the malicious behaviour. CrowdStrike’s next-generation AV module, Falcon Prevent, kills malware and malware-free intrusions, filling the gap left by legacy antivirus solutions that primarily focus on malware.
Uniting the next-gen Falcon platform from CrowdStrike with security solutions from Ivanti is an appropriate response to today’s cyberattack trends. Ivanti delivers industry-leading solutions, integrating endpoint security controls that global experts agree to create the highest barriers to real-world attacks (discovery, patch and privilege management, whitelisting, and secure configuration). With IT teams spending too much time managing security device sprawl, and Security teams suffering a well-documented labour shortage, Ivanti simplifies security with tools that target the biggest attack vectors with lauded prevention, detection, and response techniques.
Ivanti VP of Product Management and Marketing Duane Newman said that with more surface area to cover, more mission-critical assets to protect, and more sophisticated threats to defend against, IT Operations and Security teams must find a way to work together better to identify and protect vulnerable IT systems.
“Together, with CrowdStrike, we are helping our mutual customers reduce the attack surface and respond more quickly should a threat get through.”
CrowdStrike VP of Worldwide Business Development and Channels Matthew Polly said the partnership between CrowdStrike and Ivanti would help his outfit’s customers pinpoint and remediate threats while improving both management and automation, so security teams can work more efficiently and effectively.
