Ivanti and CrowdStrike have announced a strategic alliance that brings together next-generation antivirus and endpoint detection and response (EDR) with Ivanti's multi-layered endpoint security solutions. Together they are aiming to lead the charge to converge endpoint management and endpoint security, helping 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. With this unique approach customers can prevent and detect never-before-seen threats and tailor security responses based on the severity of malicious behavior. CrowdStrike's next-generation AV module, Falcon Prevent, prevents both 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 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 labor shortage, Ivanti simplifies security with tools that target the biggest attack vectors with lauded prevention, detection, and response techniques.
"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," said Duane Newman, VP of Product Management and Marketing, Ivanti. "Together, with CrowdStrike, we are helping our mutual customers reduce the attack surface and respond more quickly should a threat get through."
The technology partnership between Ivanti and CrowdStrike will provide the following benefits to joint customers:
- Faster remediation of prioritised threats to keep the endpoints' data protected
- Deeper protection and control over employees' devices
- Better insight and visibility into security incidents and better time to resolution
"It's vital to leverage advanced technologies to prevent and detect threats and provide insight, control and visibility into endpoints in real time," said Matthew Polly, VP of Worldwide Business Development and Channels, CrowdStrike. "The partnership between CrowdStrike and Ivanti will help our customers pinpoint and remediate threats while improving both management and automation, so security teams can work in a more efficient and effective manner."
