Strategic partnership to better protect organizations from security threats
CrowdStrike (Nasdaq: CRWD), a leading provider of cloud-based protection for endpoints, workloads, identities and data, and Mandiant (Nasdaq: MNDT) today announced a strategic partnership that will help joint customers investigate, remediate and defend against increasingly sophisticated cyber security events affecting companies worldwide.
As part of the collaboration, Mandiant will use the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform and subscription offers for CrowdStrike’s Incident Response (IR) services as well as the proactive consulting services for joint customers. The Mandiant Managed Defense offering will also include support for customers using the Falcon platform during the year.
The strategic partnership combines the capabilities of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform with Mandiant’s services for investigating and responding to security breaches as well as for continuous defense.
As two of the most respected companies in the cyber security industry, CrowdStrike and Mandiant have a common mission to prevent security breaches and put customers’ needs first. Both companies have long been working on the principle that defense against persistent cyber attackers is possible only with a combination of innovative products and high-profile cybersecurity experts. For this reason, both companies have opted for an open and cooperative approach with high-profile partners and technologies to provide companies with excellent protection.
“Today’s complex threat landscape requires a collaborative approach that brings together industry-leading technologies and world-class teams to build the strongest defense for our customers. That’s what this partnership is all about,” says George Kurtz, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CrowdStrike . “CrowdStrike has worked with Mandiant many times over the years, and we both respect the high level of technical and team-based expertise we bring to cyber combat. We are proud to enter into this alliance with Mandiant and thus support even more effectively the people, processes and procedures that are necessary for the security of a modern company.“
“CrowdStrike and Mandiant have earned a good reputation among public and private institutions around the world as the first address for cybersecurity,” says Kevin Mandia, Chief Executive Officer of Mandiant . “This partnership between two mission-oriented companies strengthens cyber defense at a time when cyberattacks have become a significant business problem that organizations have to deal with on a daily basis.“
