CrowdStrike, a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection and workload protection, and EY US have announced that CrowdStrike Falcon has been selected as one of EY’s preferred cybersecurity technology platforms, strengthening the alliance between both organizations.
The development of the alliance introduces an expansion into new geographies as well as new joint offerings: Ransomware Readiness and Resilience, Incident Response (IR), Recovery and Remediation, and the acceleration of Zero Trust capabilities.
The CrowdStrike-EY Alliance integrates cybersecurity operations and risk management to help aid enterprises and bolster business resiliency. Both teams said they are committed to helping customers in new areas as the alliance continues to grow outside the U.S. Recently, the alliance expanded into Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada and Italy.
One of its key focuses is thwarting ransomware attacks, which have continued to “gain momentum and sophistication” from both cyber criminals and state-sponsored threat actors. In response, EY and CrowdStrike have joined forces to create the Ransomware Readiness and Resilience solution to combat these threats.
The Ransomware Readiness and Resilience solution combines EY Next-Generation Security Operations and Response (NGSO&R) services with the CrowdStrike Falcon platform, providing protection and detection capabilities with cyber threat intelligence and 24/7 threat hunting.
The solution is said to offer immediate, real-time visibility into the organizations’ environments, identifying and eliminating potential compromises and curtailing silent failure.
Shawn Henry, CrowdStrike chief security officer and president of Services, said: “We continue to hear from our customers that dangerous cyber actors threaten the livelihood of their business operations.
“CrowdStrike and EY have teamed up to offer our joint customers market-leading technology paired with leading transformational consulting services to aid organizations and positively impact their business objectives through the prioritization of cybersecurity. We are thrilled about the maturing of this collaboration and look forward to helping more businesses around the world grow their business resiliency and security posture.”
Dave Burg, EY Americas Cybersecurity Leader, said: “The threat of cybersecurity attacks remains top of mind for EY clients and the expanded global alliance with CrowdStrike will be invaluable as they continue navigating increasing cyber threats.
“Through this collaboration, EY and CrowdStrike teams aim to address growing concerns regarding ransomware and how to manage a potential incident through the new Ransomware Readiness and Resilience, and IR, Recovery and Remediation solutions. Strengthening this alliance means supporting clients when they’re most vulnerable so they can focus on running their business.”
