crowdstrike-globeCrowdStrike Inc., a provider of cloud-delivered endpoint protection, threat intelligence, and response services, has added new capabilities and features, including endpoint machine learning and “advanced endpoint protection modules,” to its Falcon suite of endpoint protection products.

Falcon’s prevention engine is powered by a15MB machine learning model that is trained on more than 30 billion daily events processed in the CrowdStrike Threat Graph.CrowdStrike’s new endpoint machine learning capabilities build off of the company’s behavioral-based machine learning prevention and will extend full AV protection even to sensors completely disconnected from the cloud.

In addition, CrowdStrike introduced AV replacement functionality for MacOS that incorporates user-adjustable, cloud-based machine learning and blocking functionality into the CrowdStrike Falcon platform.

The company also announced the new availability of modular endpoint protection offerings, which will allow customers to implement pieces of the Falcon platform to augment existing AV solutions.

CrowdStrike Falcon is now available in five modules: Prevent, an AV replacement module; Insight, an EDR module; Discover, a “security hygiene module with privileged user account monitoring capabilities; Intelligence, a malware analysis module, and OverWatch, a threat hunting solution.

“The incumbent AV technologies are ineffective in ensuring that organizations are able to protect themselves against the rising tide of cyber threats, said George Kurtz, co-founder and chief executive officer of CrowdStrike.”With our advanced threat prevention and security management functionality, coupled with the industry’s largest threat telemetry, CrowdStrike Falcon is the only platform that provides CIOs and their teams with control, visibility, and protection — all through one lightweight endpoint sensor, leveraging the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning. We are already replacing legacy and next-generation AV solutions at a rapidly growing pace, and with today’s announcement, customers can take advantage of the Falcon platform in a modular fashion, allowing them to consume the technology in a flexible and frictionless manner to best meet their needs.”
