When it comes to strengthening your cyber defences against breaches, Ever Nimble partners with industry leader CrowdStrike. Interested in learning how this platform protects your business’ online operations and improves your cyber posture? We’ve put some answers together below.
What is CrowdStrike?
CrowdStrike is a powerful endpoint security solution that offers next-generation antivirus (NGAV), endpoint detection response (EDR), cyber threat intelligence, and managed threat hunting to offer full spectrum protection and safeguard your business online. This is more important than ever at a time when malware and ransomware attacks are on the rise.
How does CrowdStrike work?
Each network connected device your business relies on is an endpoint, from laptops, to tablets, mobiles, digital printers, and more. These endpoints exist outside your network’s firewall and have the potential to be an attack entry point, making them highly vulnerable in the face of cyber threats.
With advancements in technology and the growing hybrid workforce, it’s likely your business relies on an increasing amount of endpoints to support daily operations. This is where CrowdStrike becomes a critical platform to protect your business against breaches, combining machine learning, AI, and proactive threat hunting. This scalable solution is delivered through a lightweight agent from the CrowdStrike Security Cloud, and uses the AI powered Threat Graph to collect data, search for and investigate threats, and block attacks.
CrowdStrike collects threat data across your connected devices and servers even when they’re offline or not connected to the corporate network, ensuring your daily online operations and data are protected – no matter where your team is working. The platform’s cloud-based architecture also ensures the speed and performance of your devices remain unaffected, along with your team’s productivity.
Which cyber threats does CrowdStrike protect my business against?
This platform increases your organisation’s cyber resilience against:
- Malware – This includes ransomware.
- Zero day attacks – These happen when cyber criminals exploit software vulnerabilities before they’ve been resolved by developers.
- Credential theft – This can occur through phishing emails that leverage social engineering.
How does the platform differ from other antivirus and endpoint security solutions?
Cyber attacks are on the rise, and with more than 1 billion malware programs online it’s critical for security solutions to adapt to the increasingly complex threat landscape.
Traditional antivirus depends on an index of known malware signatures to detect threats, resulting in a period where newly released malware goes undetected. This is a significant issue when new malware variants are constantly being released, with over 270,000 new variants detected in the first half of 2022.
The CrowdStrike platform solves this problem by harnessing AI and machine learning, so undetected threats and malware can be identified and blocked, increasing your business’ cyber defences and mitigating downtime.
Which industries and organisations use CrowdStrike’s solutions?
The CrowdStrike platform offers comprehensive benefits to all business’ looking to strengthen their cyber security – from small businesses to education institutes, the resource sector, and more. Whatever your industry or business size, if you’re looking to stop breaches and protect your daily operations against threats, CrowdStrike is the right solution for you.
