SecurityScorecard Joins the CrowdStrike Store to Help Organizations Reduce Risk of External and Insider Threats
NEW YORK – April 4, 2022 – SecurityScorecard, the global leader in cybersecurity ratings, today announced an integration with CrowdStrike, a leader in cloud-delivered protection of endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data, that helps organizations reduce security risks in external and internal environments. With this integration, CrowdStrike customers can view SecurityScorecard’s analysis of their external cyber posture within the Falcon platform via SecurityScorecard’s context enrichment application available via the CrowdStrike Store. In addition, joint customers that leverage both platforms can integrate signals from CrowdStrike into their respective scorecards.
Today, many traditional methods of measuring cybersecurity risk provide limited visibility, rely on point-in-time assessments and uncover critical risk too late. Security teams must assess the cyber health of the organization and third parties in real-time to fortify security posture and prevent breaches. The new integration unifies and mitigates internal and external risk. CrowdStrike secures the internal environment with high-fidelity detection and response capabilities of the Falcon platform powered by the CrowdStrike Security Cloud, while SecurityScorecard monitors the external portion of the attack surface.
“For organizations to adequately protect against cyber risk, they need to make smarter, faster decisions informed by continuous internal and external threat monitoring,” said Aleksandr Yampolskiy, co-founder and CEO of SecurityScorecard. “We chose CrowdStrike to provide an integration that empowers organizations with the unique ability to be significantly more proactive against breaches and reinforce their security posture in real-time.”
Together, SecurityScorecard and CrowdStrike provide continuous visibility into an organization’s holistic cyber risk. This includes the ability to monitor the suppliers, vendors, and partners that represent an organization’s “extended perimeter,” which has become a vector of choice for bad actors in today’s threat environment. Customers can view SecurityScorecard’s easy-to-understand A-F grade scale within the Falcon console to mitigate breach risk and gain actionable details for every issue detected across external environments. Additionally, they can view continuously refreshed sub-scores that measure performance across 10 areas of cyber risk to improve detection and response capabilities.
“Monitoring cyber risk using internal and external perspectives bolsters an organization’s ability to thwart threats before they wreak havoc on corporate networks, possibly affecting customers, partners and other third-parties,” said Geoff Swaine, vice president of Global Programs, Store and Technology Alliances at CrowdStrike. “As the sophistication of threats and cyber risk escalates, it’s imperative for organizations to maintain visibility into all of the vectors that can be attacked across environments. This integration introduces a valuable new perspective that organizations can use to stay ahead of adversaries.”
