CrowdStrike offers guidance to combat threat to cloud-native applications ...

CNAPP, an adversary-focused cloud protection platform, has unveiled new capabilities. These capabilities reduce the time it takes to respond to cloud environments and workloads, increasing threat hunting.

CrowdStrike has developed a world-class AI, which includes real-time attack statistics, threat intelligence, and enhanced telemetry from across the business, enabling hyper-accurate detections, automated protection and remediation, elite threat hunting, and prioritized visibility of vulnerabilities.

The Falcon platform, which is designed in the cloud with a single lightweight-agent architecture, is designed to facilitate faster and flexible setup, increased security and efficiency, as well as a simple implementation and a quicker time-to-value.

Two of CrowdStrike's cloud solutions are connected via a shared cloud activity dashboard. The popular agentless Horizon, called Cloud Security Posture Management, and the Falcon Cloud Workload Protection modules, have been unveiled on the Falcon platform.

Updates include new techniques of leveraging Falcon Fusion (CrowdStrike's SOAR framework) to automate cloud threat remediation; new techniques to prevent identity-based threats; and more.

Organizations that utilize multicloud environments and hybrid work models have dissolved traditional work boundaries. Developers spin clouds up and down in minutes without noticing any potential misalignment.

Similarly, public cloud instances are available for immediate use without the use of MFA (multifactor authentication) or other security procedures. An attacker may exploit a security flaw in less than a second and initiate a rapid-moving lateral breach.

CrowdStrike has recently been named a "CensordStrike" with its adversary-focused approach to CNAPP, which is powered by industry-leading threat intelligence.

CrowdStrike is distinct from other industries on the market because we provide both agent-based and agentless solutions, thus providing organizations with complete visibility, detection, and remediation capabilities to safeguard their cloud infrastructure, says Amol Kulkarni, the chief product and engineering officer of CrowdStrike.

According to Kulkarni, CrowdStrike offers breach protection for cloud workloads, containers, and. The company does this for enterprises with multicloud and hybrid cloud infrastructures, giving them real-time alerting and reporting on over 150 cloud threats. CrowdStrike's adversary-focused approach to CNAPP, which is backed by industry-leading threat intelligence, guarantees that their companies are well-prepared to handle cloud breaches.

According to Dave Worthington, the general manager of Digital Security and Risk at Jemena, CrowdStrike's CNAPP provides a thorough and accurate view of the cloud threat landscape. This, he said, has distinguished CrowdStrike from the competition.

CrowdStrike's cloud security services, like Falcon Horizon, which we use to monitor our cloud environment and detect misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and security threats, are constantly evolving and improving, which is one of the greatest rewards I've seen.

Jason Waits, the director of cybersecurity at Inductive Automation, believes that the Falcon platform's expansion to enable CNAPP can deliver full cloud security without being required to replicate threat hunting capabilities.

"CrowdStrike's performance is amazing due to its minimal CPU usage and relatively small impact on overall system performance. We're able to reduce security blindspots with Falcon Horizon by continuously monitoring our cloud environment for misconfigurations," Waits said.

The CNAPP, which is a team of adversary experts, is capable of doing so.

The Cloud activity dashboard combines Falcon Horizon's CSPM insights and Falcon CWP's workload protection into a single user interface. This allows for faster assessment and intervention by prioritizing critical issues, addressing runtime concerns, and enabling cloud threat hunting.

Custom indicators of misconfigurations (IOMs) for AWS, Azure, and GCP: As long as security is a core to any cloud deployment, and that customized policies are aligned with organizational objectives.

Azure's identity access analyzer uses identity threats. It also guarantees that permissions are enforced based on the lowest privilege for Azure Active Directory (AD) groups' users and apps. Falcon Horizon's existing Identity Access Analyzer for AWS has been extended with this capability.

AWS' automated remediation workflow: Faces threats with a guided and automated remediation powered by Falcon Fusion. Workflows provide context and prescriptive direction for resolving issues and shortening incident resolution time.

With machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), indicators of attack (IoAs), deep kernel visibility, and custom indicators of compromise (IoCs) as well as behavioral blocking, Falcon container detection is a defense against malware and sophisticated threats targeting containers automatically.

Rogue container detection: Keeps an eye on container deployments and decommissions. It detects and scans malicious images, but also detects and prevents from being created privileged or writable containers which can be used as entry points for attacks.
