CrowdStrike Announces Industry’s First Endpoint Detection and Response Solution for Mobile Devices

CrowdStrike brings the power of the cloud-native Falcon platform to
Android and iOS, further extending its market-leading EDR protection
across the enterprise

SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CrowdStrike® Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint
protection, today announced CrowdStrike Falcon® for Mobile, the first
enterprise endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution for mobile
devices. Based on CrowdStrike’s proven EDR technology for enterprise
endpoints, Falcon for Mobile enables security teams to hunt for advanced
threats on mobile devices and provides unprecedented visibility into
malicious, unwanted, or accidental access to sensitive corporate data,
while protecting user privacy and without impacting device performance.

Leveraging CrowdStrike’s cloud-native platform and single-agent
architecture, customers seamlessly extend their investment with
CrowdStrike Falcon for mobile EDR protection. With Falcon for Mobile,
security teams have real-time visibility into mobile device activity to
quickly identify, investigate and remediate threats. The comprehensive
mobile solution also integrates Falcon threat intelligence to provide
guidance in mobile threat hunting activities, and Falcon OverWatch to
proactively hunt for threats on mobile devices 24/7/365.

“We continue to expand the capabilities of the CrowdStrike Falcon
platform, leveraging its cloud-native architecture built to protect the
endpoint and stop the breach on every platform – workstations, servers,
cloud workloads, containers, and now also mobile devices,” said George
Kurtz, CrowdStrike’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “With
today’s announcement of Falcon for Mobile, customers will be able to
leverage the industry-leading features of the CrowdStrike Falcon
platform — EDR, managed threat hunting, single agent architecture, and
massive threat telemetry — to effectively defend enterprise mobile
devices.”

Cloud and mobility have completely changed the way employees work,
providing speed and flexibility in accessing information, but also
exposing the enterprise to yet another threat vector. The workforce is
more reliant than ever on business-critical applications, accessing
confidential information from multiple devices anytime, anywhere. Yet,
security teams lack visibility into mobile threat activity due to
inadequate and complex solutions that are difficult to implement.

“The targeting of mobile devices is a growing attack vector, yet, up
until this point, mobile security has failed to provide adequate
protection for the millions of devices that enter corporate networks
every day, leaving organizations especially exposed given the growing
need to deliver large amounts of corporate data to BYOD devices. The use
of disparate solutions with little or no integration between the mobile
endpoint and enterprise defense tools has left vulnerabilities in
organizations’ security stance that attackers can exploit,” said Frank
Dickson, research vice president, IDC. “Falcon for Mobile addresses a
growing gap in enterprise security by providing unprecedented access to
mobile endpoint activity and enabling organizations to proactively
identify and take action against malicious behavior to improve their
overall security stance.”

Falcon for Mobile key customer benefits include:

  • Visibility — Security teams have instant visibility into
    enterprise app behavior on Android and iOS devices to protect
    sensitive corporate data. Falcon for Mobile also makes it fast and
    easy to identify vulnerable devices by providing real-time visibility
    into device health and security posture.
  • Proactive threat hunting — For the first time, organizations
    can perform proactive threat hunting on mobile devices, leveraging new
    telemetry types such as mobile network activity, clipboard actions,
    and peripherals monitoring.
  • Enterprise application behavior monitoring — Falcon for Mobile
    monitors enterprise app behavior on Android and iOS devices to enable
    security teams to uncover malicious or unwanted activity in their
    business-critical apps. On Android, its exclusive dynamic application
    shielding provides enhanced monitoring of enterprise apps, further
    protecting sensitive corporate data.
  • Single interface — Telemetry from traditional endpoints is
    presented alongside telemetry from mobile devices in a single
    interface to enable rapid, comprehensive security incident
    investigations.
  • Privacy-by-Design — Falcon for Mobile focuses on
    customer-designated corporate apps with no monitoring of personal
    applications on the device such as text messaging, email, photos, or
    browsing history.
  • Lightweight agent — Sensors for Android and iOS are extremely
    high performance and lightweight with a nominal effect on battery life
    and data bandwidth usage of a device.
  • Seamless integration — Falcon for Mobile is fully integrated
    with the CrowdStrike Falcon platform, natively delivering Falcon
    threat intelligence and Falcon OverWatch services with no extra
    implementations or integrations.

CrowdStrike recently launched the CrowdStrike
Store
, the first unified cloud security ecosystem that opens the CrowdStrike
Falcon®
platform
to third-party applications, and allows customers to discover, try, buy,
and deploy trusted partner applications and add-ons alongside the Falcon
platform. The CrowdStrike Store and the Falcon for Mobile launch
underscore the advantage of CrowdStrike’s cloud-native technology
architecture that enables rapid development and rollout of impactful new
modules and capabilities. No other company has been able to deliver so
many major technology launches and integrations across enterprise
security functions with speed and scale as CrowdStrike, fortifying the
company’s leadership in endpoint security and next-generation technology.
