CrowdStrike Unveils Managed XDR: 5 Big Things To Know
The cybersecurity giant is creating new partner opportunities with the extended detection and response offering, which expands upon its popular managed detection and response service, CrowdStrike Chief Business Officer Daniel Bernard told CRN.
For partners and customers, CrowdStrike’s managed XDR offering ultimately promises improved security outcomes, Bernard told CRN. He offered an example, in the critical area of email security, for how the MXDR offering could enable better cyberdefense. Business email compromise remains a “major attack vector,” Bernard said. Previously, however, “email wasn’t something that was really integrated into the Falcon platform — we’re not an email security vendor.”
“What managed XDR lets us do — and lets our partners do — is, in an integrated fashion from the Falcon console, be able to deal with the telemetry, triage those alerts, take actions. It’s not just ’data in,’ it’s also actioning those alerts for our customers,” he said. “So it limits the amount of time you’ve got to spend into multiple dashboards, it limits the clicks, which ultimately results in faster mean time to detect, faster mean time to respond — which is what customers are really looking for.”
