Kroll, a provider of global risk and financial advisory solutions, has struck a partnership with security provider CrowdStrike that links the former’s managed detection and response (MDR) platform with the latter’s portfolio of cloud-based endpoint protection, cloud workloads, identity and data solutions.

Kroll' Strategy to Expand Managed Services

Marc Brawner, global head of managed services for Kroll’s cyber risk practice, said the CrowdStrike deal is part of a broader strategy to expand its managed security services ecosystem through integrations and alliances.

Here's what the partnership expansion offers:

  • Joint customers worldwide can leverage Kroll’s advanced IR and remediation capabilities, on-demand and with the Kroll Responder managed detection and response service.
  • Customers can now also benefit from the CrowdStrike Falcon platform and Kroll’s advanced SOC capabilities needed for enhanced situational awareness, proactive threat hunting, fully integrated digital forensics and incident response to ensure rapid response and remediation of threats.
  • Kroll’s threat monitoring and frontline threat intelligence service is fully integrated with the Kroll Responder MDR service to provide true incident detection, investigation, containment and remediation.
  • The Responder service leverages leading security technologies, and the addition of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform provides organizations with the assurance of best-in-class security in protecting their business.

Company Leaders Cheer Partnership

Brawner expressed enthusiasm for the partnership:

“We are excited to extend Kroll’s elite threat monitoring and incident response capabilities to CrowdStrike Falcon customers around the world. Adversaries are relentless, and together, we can help more organizations reduce risk and focus on their business.”

Michael Rogers, vice president of global alliances at CrowdStrike, added:

“CrowdStrike believes that a collaborative cybersecurity ecosystem should work together to meet the complex needs of organizations. Recognizing the intensified cyber threat environment, CrowdStrike and Kroll are jointly committed to enhance the cyber resilience of organizations.”
