CrowdStrike has bought to market Falcon Complete XDR, a managed eXtended detection and response (MXDR) service designed to help organizations address the cybersecurity skills gap.

Commenting on Falcon Complete XDR, Tom Etheridge, chief global services officer at CrowdStrike, said:

"With MDR, CrowdStrike pioneered the idea of creating a seamless union between the technology, human expertise and an organization's security team to close the gap between detection and response and deliver the outcome of stopping breaches. With Managed XDR services, organizations can entrust the implementation, management, response and end-to-end remediation of advanced threats across multiple vendors and attack surfaces — all without the burden, overhead or costs of deploying and managing a 24/7 threat detection and response function on their own."

Falcon Complete XDR extends CrowdStrike's managed detection and response (MDR) capabilities across all supported Falcon modules and third-party vendors, the company said. The service provides organizations with threat hunting, monitoring and remediation across their attack surfaces. It also blends human expertise with artificial intelligence-based automation and threat intelligence across security and IT categories to operationalize XDR.

MSSPs Can Deliver MXDR Services Powered by CrowdStrike

Several MSSPs and systems integrators are leveraging Falcon Complete XDR to provide MXDR services, including:

  • Red Canary
  • eSentire
  • BT
  • Atos Group
  • ReliaQuest
  • Telefonica Tech

These partners and others can augment their own security operations centers (SOCs) with CrowdStrike-powered offerings, CrowdStrike Chief Business Officer Daniel Bernard said. In doing so, they can help organizations utilize CrowdStrike's XDR capabilities to secure their operations.

Introducing CrowdStrike Falcon Insight for IoT

The Falcon Complete XDR launch comes after CrowdStrike in April 2023 released Falcon Insight for IoT, an endpoint detection and response (EDR) and XDR solution that helps organizations protect their eXtended internet of things (XIoT) assets.

Organizations can use Falcon Insight for IoT to identify threats across their devices and systems and receive custom security policy recommendations for their XIoT assets, CrowdStrike indicated. Falcon Insight for IoT also performs host/process containment, USB device control and other integrated response actions.

CrowdStrike offers security products and services to protect endpoints, cloud workloads, identities and data. The company provides the Elevate Partner Program, which enables MSSPs, MSPs and other technology providers to integrate its products and services into their portfolios.
