Secon partners with CrowdStrike to expand incident response capability

Secon is now a CrowdStrike incident response capability partner

Secon is pleased to announce our partnership with CrowdStrike, a global cyber security leader that has redefined modern security with the world’s most advanced cloud-native platform for protecting critical areas of enterprise risk.

At Secon, we help our clients achieve cyber security maturity through a combination of solutions and services to transform organisations’ security postures. This new partnership with CrowdStrike further strengthens our technology portfolio and ability to provide customers with results-driven cyber security solutions and services.

“Organisations fear being compromised by ransomware and are looking for best of breed protection. CrowdStrike offers real, next-gen antivirus protection and advanced incident response tooling,” said Andrew Gogarty, Secon’s Chief Security Evangelist.

He continued, “Not only does partnering with CrowdStrike diversify our solutions portfolio, but their tools will also help bolster our own Managed Security Services. As a CrowdStrike partner, we’ll have access to its powerful incident response tools which we can deploy in our clients’ environments, helping to expand our own incident response capability.”

Powered by the CrowdStrike Security Cloud, the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform leverages real-time indicators of attack, threat intelligence, evolving adversary tradecraft and enriched telemetry from across the enterprise to deliver hyper-accurate detections, automated protection and remediation, elite threat hunting and prioritised observability of vulnerabilities.

Purpose-built in the cloud, the Falcon® platform enables partners to rapidly build best-in-class integrations to deliver customer-focused solutions that provide scalable deployment, superior protection and performance, reduced complexity, and immediate time-to-value.

About the partnership, Robert Gupta, Secon CEO, said, “CrowdStrike is generating a lot of excitement and interest from the industry. I have had several client meetings where someone has something positive to say about them. At Secon, we always want to ensure we’re offering clients innovative and value-driven options around addressing their cyber security challenges.”

Secon believes that every organisation is a likely target for a cyber attack. Given the volume, complexity, and sophistication of recent attacks, the only way to protect yourself is to be prepared 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. To protect your organisation effectively, you must have three elements in place: a robust continuously maintained protection layer, round the clock monitoring, and tried and tested recovery playbooks. These elements need to be supported by both cutting edge technology and genuine human insight.

This is a sentiment shared by CrowdStrike. One of its core beliefs is that as adversaries advance their tradecraft to bypass legacy security solutions, the combination of world-class technology combined with expert threat hunters is absolutely mandatory to see and stop the most sophisticated threats. Autonomous machine learning alone is simply not good enough to stop dedicated attackers.

This shared value is why we’re thrilled to welcome CrowdStrike into our partner ecosystem to continue to help organisations reduce their cyber risks and improve their incident response capability.
