MSSP, Endpoint Protection Partnership: Delta Risk, CrowdStrike Shake Hands

Delta Risk, a Top 200 MSSP for 2019 and security operations center-as-a-service (SOCaaS) provider, has joined the CrowdStrike Elevate Partner Program. In doing so, Delta Risk now uses the CrowdStrike Falcon endpoint protection platform to help businesses improve their security posture, according to a prepared statement.

Elevate partners can leverage Falcon to deliver security solutions, intelligence, services and expertise to help organizations combat cyber threats, CrowdStrike noted. Furthermore, Elevate partners can access Falcon Connect, a collection of application programming interfaces (APIs), applications and tools that can be integrated into security solutions and services to improve threat detection and response.

Meanwhile, Falcon leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to provide next-generation antivirus (NGAV), IT hygiene, endpoint detection and response (EDR), cyber threat intelligence and proactive threat hunting, CrowdStrike indicated. It also offers an open framework for the development and deployment of security services.

Australian MSSP Baidam Solutions Becomes an Elevate Partner

The Delta Risk announcement comes after Australian MSSP Baidam Solutions last month became an Elevate partner.

Baidam is CrowdStrike's first Australian indigenous channel partner, the companies said. As an Elevate partner, Baidam delivers Falcon security capabilities to Australian businesses.

eSentire, CrowdStrike Partner

In addition to its Delta Risk and Baidam pacts, CrowdStrike last month partnered with eSentire, a Top 200 MSSP and Top 20 managed detection and response (MDR) service provider.

eSentire has integrated Falcon EDR and NGAV capabilities into its MDR solution, the companies said. Also, eSentire has incorporated CrowdStrike's Falcon OverWatch human threat detection engine into its esENDPOINT endpoint protection solution.
