CrowdStrike has announced the expansion of support for AWS with new capabilities that deliver integrations for the compute services and cloud services categories. Through these expanded services, CrowdStrike is enhancing development, security and operations (DevSecOps) to enable faster and more secure innovation that is easier to deploy.
The expanded support is claimed to provide customers with insight across different compute services, secure communication across deployment fleet, automatic workload discovery and cloud visibility across multiple accounts.
CrowdStrike provides cloud-native workload protection for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) A1 instances powered by AWS Graviton Processors, as well as the C6g, M6g and R6g Amazon EC2 instances based on the new Graviton2 Processors.
Further, CrowdStrike brings its prevention and detection capabilities that include ML, exploit prevention and behavioral detections to Amazon WorkSpaces, supporting remote workforces without affecting business continuity.
CrowdStrike Falcon will also provide run-time protection, EDR visibility and container awareness, enabling customers to further secure their applications running on Bottlerocket.
Thanks to the expanded support, customers can use AWS PrivateLink with CrowdStrike Falcon to enable their sensor-to-cloud traffic, from their AWS hosted instances.
CrowdStrike Falcon Workload Protection will also integrate with AWS Control Tower via API, delivering protection and visibility across all Amazon EC2 resources.
