CrowdStrike adds XDR, other capabilites across 4 key security products

CrowdStrike on Tuesday announced enhancements to four of its security products–Falcon Insight, CrowdStrike Cloud Security, Humio, and Falcon Discover. The new features include XDR (extended detection and response), enhanced zero trust, new log management, and IoT security capabilities.

The first new offering is an extension to Crowdstrike’s Falcon Insight that will include XDR capabilities. CrowdStrike will now allow all its EDR (endpoint detection and response) customers to activate XDR capabilities within Falcon Insight through connector packs that unlock cross-domain detections, investigations and response actions across all key security domains from a unified console. However, customers will have to pay an additional charge for the new features.

XDR is an approach to threat detection and response that provides holistic protection against cyberattacks, unauthorized access and misuse. Falcon Insight XDR would be a combination of native XDR as well as hybrid XDR. 

Native XDR refers to integrating first-party data—data that Falcon has from endpoints, cloud infrastructure, and identity capabilities—and co-relating that with detections and incidents that span across these domains. 

Hybrid XDR will take data from third parties including cloud XDR alliance partners and third-party vendors to create detections that span across the telemetry among these domains. 

“Our XDR strategy has been clear from the beginning: bring the right information into the Falcon platform at the right time. With the introduction of Falcon Insight XDR, CrowdStrike is making it easier than ever for our customers to implement XDR and get EDR-like benefits from native integrations of other Falcon modules from the Falcon platform,” said Michael Sentonas, chief technology officer at CrowdStrike, in a press note.
