CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc.’s new Falcon Identity Threat Protection Complete, is a fully-managed identity threat protection solution. It brings together the Falcon Identity Threat Protection module and Falcon Complete managed service to deliver identity threat prevention and IT policy enforcement, with expert management, monitoring and remediation. CrowdStrike was named as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Managed Detection and Response Services 2021 Vendor Assessment, and recognized as an MDR leader in The Forrester Wave: Managed Detection and Response, Q1 2021.
With the rise of remote work, identity has become the new perimeter and attackers are increasingly targeting credentials to infiltrate an organisation. According to the 2022 CrowdStrike Global Threat Report, nearly 80% of cyberattacks leverage identity-based attacks to compromise legitimate credentials and use techniques like lateral movement to quickly evade detection. Defending against identity-based attacks requires a mix of technology and human expertise, ensuring organisations can respond swiftly to these threats.
“Today’s adversaries are amazingly adept at obtaining and abusing stolen credentials, taking advantage of blind spots in legacy systems, contractor systems and other unmanaged devices to gain a foothold into an organisation and blend in undetected. This is increasingly problematic as it relates to ransomware campaigns. Organisations need to adapt their defences to stay a step ahead of adversaries. As an MDR leader, CrowdStrike continues to innovate in the market to address the ever-evolving threat landscape. Falcon Identity Threat Protection Complete enables organisations to get full visibility into identity-based threats and respond to them in real-time, preventing attacks from progressing,” said Thomas Etheridge, senior vice president, services at CrowdStrike.
