Zscaler joins CrowdStrike alliance
Cloud security specialists, Zscaler (www.zscaler.com) is expanding its integrations with CloudStrike, a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint and workload protection.
The first of the integrations allows Zscaler ZIA™ to leverage CrowdStrike Falcon ZTA (Zero Trust Assessment) device scores for access policy configuration. Together with Zscaler Zscaler ZPA™, joint Zscaler and CrowdStrike customers can now extend zero trust protection to both internal and external applications. Additionally, Humio, a CrowdStrike company, is now able to ingest Zscaler logs, providing customers with the visibility to correlate with EDR telemetry to identify threats, and swiftly take action to mitigate sophisticated attacks.
Zscaler will also be participating in the CrowdXDR Alliance to enhance end-to-end visibility and control across domains, with in-depth data analytics and AI-assisted investigation and remediation capabilities.
“Our expanded partnership with CrowdStrike is a step forward for businesses that look for enhanced user micro-segmentation and greater control over application or data access,” says Steve House, Senior Vice President of Product Management, Zscaler. “We’re proud to say that collaborating with CrowdStrike has allowed us to integrate our ZPA and ZIA solutions with the CrowdStrike ZTA score, which can be used to deliver new zero trust security features that have greater impact in the work-from-anywhere era.”
In addition to the new integrations, Zscaler will join the CrowdStrike CrowdXDR Alliance to help connect siloed security systems that may lack interoperability features needed to protect their hybrid environments against lateral threats.
“Our expanding integrations with Zscaler continue our commitment to deliver frictionless zero trust to customers from the endpoint to the application. Additionally, we’re excited to welcome Zscaler to the CrowdStrike CrowdXDR ecosystem and are looking forward to working closely together to provide stronger end-to-end visibility for our customers,” comments Amol Kulkarni, Chief Product and Engineering Officer, CrowdStrike. “The increase in global ransomware attacks has shown that CrowdStrike’s industry-leading detection, protection and remediation capabilities are required across multiple domains and tools to keep our customers safe and effectively stop breaches anywhere.”
“As part of United’s digital security transformation, we decided to pursue a cloud-first strategy for reducing the attack surface and securing endpoints, with a focus on inspection and control to be able to effectively and quickly respond to threats,” says Sean Mason, Managing Director, Cyber Defense, United. “The CrowdStrike-Zscaler integration has really allowed us to defend United in ways we weren’t able to before.”
