‘We are the only platform that (offers) a single agent, single console and single data backend,’ CrowdStrike’s Raj Rajamani said.
A Slack-like collaborative environment for security analysts. Expansion of CrowdStrike artificial intelligence and generative AI capabilities. And a new offering aimed at non-security IT teams.
These are some of the biggest product announcements to come out of CrowdStrike Fal.Con 2023, which runs through Thursday in Las Vegas. Even as a company that’s now generating in the vicinity of $3 billion in annual recurring revenue, the Austin, Texas-based cybersecurity giant is accelerating the pace of its product innovation, according to top CrowdStrike executives. In fact, Fal.Con 2023 is seeing the largest number of product releases of any Fal.Con yet, CrowdStrike Co-Founder and CEO George Kurtz said Monday during the company’s Partner Summit at the conference.
The announcements also demonstrate how CrowdStrike continues to provide partners and customers with a single agent, a single console and a single data backend for its lightweight security service, according to Raj Rajamani (pictured), chief product officer for data, identity, cloud and endpoint at CrowdStrike, during a briefing with media Monday. Other companies can only claim to have a platform that unites as many security services as CrowdStrike’s, Rajamani said.
“We are the only platform that (offers) a single agent, single console and single data backend,” he said. “Our greatest strength is the fact that you have a single agent that can be deployed on-prem or in the cloud. A single console for managing all the configurations and settings as well as alert detections. And a single data lake, which means that if we have information from a few modules – first-party or even third-party products – we are able to see a holistic picture of the attack surface as well as what your adversaries are up to. No other platform offers it.”
Meanwhile, earlier Tuesday, CrowdStrike announced an agreement to acquire Bionic, a startup offering technology in the emerging category of application security posture management. CrowdStrike said it will incorporate the startup’s capabilities into its fast-growing cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP).
What follows are the key details on five cool new CrowdStrike products unveiled by at Fal.Con 2023.
