CrowdStrike took first place in the market share of Modern Endpoint Security 2020!

Release

According to an IDC report, CrowdStrike is «on its track to become the first vendor to have annual revenue in the enterprise endpoint protection market to exceed $ 1 billion».

CrowdStrike took first place by the share of revenue in 2020 in the global market of corporate security endpoints according to IDC Worldwide Corporate Endpoint Security Market Shares. The report is further evidence of CrowdStrike's market leadership and demonstrates the proven effectiveness of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform as the company continues to outperform its competitors in performance, strategy and innovation.


The report said the COVID-19 pandemic facilitated a rapid transition to a remote work environment and forced organizations to prioritize increased costs for EDR solutions to enhance security in a high-risk environment. Organizations around the world have moved from local data centers to public clouds and expanded the need to protect both endpoints and workloads in their environments at a time when ransomware and phishing attempts were growing daily as attackers used the pandemic.


Unlike customers who choose other endpoint security vendors, those who choose CrowdStrike get the most out of crowdsourcing data, which can be scaled across enterprise networks and different ecosystems through the use of cloud and machine learning-based automation.


CrowdStrike is a pioneer in the field of modern endpoint security through innovations such as the introduction of the first and largest cloud knowledge base on security, which receives about 6 trillion unique data from endpoints per week. The CrowdStrike security cloud helps protect customers of all sizes with automated threat analysis and next-generation EDR.


According to Michael Suby, research vice president, Security and Trust at IDC, “The corporate endpoint security market is highly competitive and evolving. With threat actors relentlessly targeting end users and their devices as their first steps in attack campaigns, endpoint security is an essential first line of defense. As a first line of defense, organizations want more. They are expecting vendors to deliver a broader set of integrated and synergistic prevent, protect, and post-compromise detect and respond capabilities.”

CrowdStrike completely handles this. Customers get better protection, better performance, and lightning-fast payback with CrowdStrike from the Falcon cloud platform.


CrowdStrike recently took the lead in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant among endpoint protection platforms. In addition, CrowdStrike received the highest score in the 2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Endpoint Protection Platforms Report. The company was also named the leader in endpoint security software in the Forrester Wave Q2 2021 report, receiving the highest scores on 17 criteria.


iIT Distribution is the official distributor of CrowdStrike. Our partners, customers and organizations of all sizes can get access to CrowdStrike Falcon, ordering a trial version from us.

How subtle attacks maximize hackers' profits and what defensive actions need to be taken immediately

Articles and reviews

Demanding programs change their image. Do they pay ransom, how to protect themselves and what to do in case of ransomware attacks?

The main news since the beginning of last month have been allegations of criminal activity by hacker groups around the world in order to obtain funds for stolen and encrypted data. Therefore, the month of May was marked by a number of major cyberattacks, including the use of software ransomware.


WHAT HAPPENED?

Liverpool's subway has been hit by a Lockbit encryption attack, a Brazilian state's court system has been shut down due to malicious file encryption on computers on the system, and Babuk Locker hackers who attacked the Metropolitan District of Columbia have threatened to pay bribery reveal police informants.

The Conti attack seriously undermined Ireland's healthcare system and its affiliates insurance giant AXA were subjected to cyberattacks using a ransomware program, by which hackers stole 3 TB of confidential data from Asian units of AXA.


The target of all these attacks, unfortunately, are critical infrastructure, government and commercial social institutions that function as life support systems for our daily lives. Thus, attacks on such facilities can lead to far-reaching consequences from the activities of criminal groups.


LARGE CORPORATIONS CAN'T SUPPORT

Even the security of companies like Apple was attacked: the brand fell victim to extortionists. A group of cybercriminals, Sodinokoby, stole confidential information about the brand's future products (MacBook laptops and other devices) through the REvil blackmail program, hacking into Apple Quanta Computer (Apple's partner) systems. Hackers were waiting for a ransom from Quanta Computer of $ 50 million by April 27 and threatened to publish more than a dozen diagrams and drawings of components. It was also noted that the size of the ransom could be reduced from 50 million to 20 million, if it is paid by May 7. Later, REvil malware operators removed stolen Apple schemes from their data source site for unknown reasons. At the same time, stolen data from another large company was offered for purchase in the darknet this month.


Spanish Glovo food delivery service, who fell in love with Ukrainians, also felt the effects of a hacker attack during which, the data of tens of millions of users (160 GB of data with information about names, phone numbers, passwords) were put up for sale for $ 85,000.


Toyota suffered a double cyberattack in May: the first hit European operations of Daihatsu Diesel Company, a subsidiary of Toyota, and later Toyota Auto Parts Manufacturing Mississippi uncovered another attack using a ransomware program. Reports say some financial and customer data has been stolen and made public by attackers.


THREATS OF THE MODERN ECONOMY: ATTACK ON CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE

The largest ransomware attack during this period halted the largest US pipeline. On May 6, the operator of the Colonial Pipeline pipeline was subjected to a cyberattack by the DarkSide group, as a result of which the company was forced to suspend the transportation of fuel along the entire length of the 9,000 kilometer pipeline. DarkSide penetrated the Colonial Pipeline network and received almost 100 GB of data. After receiving the data, hackers blocked the data on some computers and servers, requesting a ransom. In case of non-payment, hackers threatened to leak data. The Colonial Pipeline website was unavailable, and the company itself admitted that it would resume transportation, which was suspended on May 7, only on May 15-16.

The scale of the attack on Colonial Pipeline was similar to the NotPetya incidents and the attack on Solar Winds.


DO I NEED TO PAY A REDEMPTION?

There is a stunning reality of extortion programs: 92% of organizations do not receive all their data, even if they have paid a ransom. Nevertheless, 32% of companies in 2021 are still willing to pay for it, hoping for a full recovery of their information. Due to this willingness of companies to comply with any conditions of criminal groups, only in the first three months of 2021 the amount of ransom increased significantly and now averages $ 220,000, while in the last three months of 2020 this figure was at $ 154,000. even after paying such crazy money, a third of organizations have not been able to recover more than half of their encrypted data.


It is also worth noting that the concept of blackmail program attack is evolving day by day, and now such attacks include payment requirements even without data encryption. Attackers demand payment in exchange for preventing leaks of stolen information on the Internet. But even after paying the extortionists in this case, the company has no guarantees and can not remain protected from the publication or sale of this data. Because does it make sense to rely on the honesty of fraudsters?


Threats from extortionist programs almost always have valuable consequences for business, including disruptions and theft of confidential data. So is it worth taking such a valuable risk?


IT IS TIME TO MOVE

Readiness for extortion programs has become so mandatory for all organizations that even executives and directors recognize it as part of their responsibility for the operation of the business. The company's team CrowdStrike - the developer of cybersecurity systems, which protects thousands of Amazon-sized companies from hackers, regularly assists organizations in both training and preventive protection, and in responding to attacks by extortionist programs. The company announces some of the practices it recommends in such a turbulent time from attacks.


1. Increasing the resilience to threats of applications with Internet access

It is not recommended to connect RDP directly to the Internet. Attackers use one-factor authentication and unregistered Internet applications. Hackers regularly target systems through Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), which is available from the Internet.


It is recommended that you use a VPN with multifactor authentication and make sure that any CVEs associated with the VPN platform and the underlying authentication application have priority for fix. This principle should apply to all remote methods and Active Directory (AD) and Citrix Gateway.


2. Introduction and improvement of e-mail security

The victim organization is caught through a phishing letter - this is the most common tactic. Typically, these phishing emails contain a malicious link or URL that delivers data to the recipient's work platform.

Therefore, it is recommended that you implement an email security solution that filters URLs, as well as an isolated attachment software environment. In addition, organizations may prohibit users from receiving password-protected zip files, executable files, javascripts, or Windows Installer package files unless there is a legitimate business need to do so. Adding the "External] tag to non-organization emails and a warning message at the top of the email helps remind users to exercise caution when handling such emails.


Users should also have a documented process to report any emails they are unsure of. In addition, organizations should consider restricting users' access to personal email accounts.


3. Endpoint protection

During the lifecycle of an attack, which ends with the deployment of a ransomware, attackers often use a number of methods to exploit endpoints. These operating methods range from the use of bad AD configurations to the use of public exploits against unprotected systems or applications.

That is why we have to:

  • Provide full coverage of all endpoints in your network for endpoint security products and for the endpoint detection and protection platform (EDR).
  • Develop a vulnerability and patch management program.
  • Follow Active Directory security guidelines: avoid easy passwords with weak authentication methods; avoid having regular users with a domain with local administrator privileges and local administrator accounts with the same passwords for the entire enterprise; restrict data exchange between workstations; avoid sharing privileged credentials.


4. Offline backup

The only reliable way to save data during a ransomware attack is backups that are protected from those programs. When developing a stand-alone backup infrastructure, protected from extortionate programs, keep in mind that:

  • Standalone backups as well as indexes (which describe what data is contained) must be completely separated from the rest of the infrastructure.
  • Access to such networks must be controlled through strict access control lists (ACLs), and all authentications must be performed using multifactor authentication (MFA).
  • Administrators who have access to both stand-alone and network infrastructure should avoid re-using account passwords.
  • Cloud storage services with strict ACLs and rules can also serve as a stand-alone backup infrastructure.
  • Emergencies, such as a blackmail attack, should be the only case where a stand-alone infrastructure is allowed to connect to an existing network.


5. Restricting access to virtualization management infrastructure

New attacks use the ability to directly attack virtualized infrastructure. This approach allows you to use a hypervisor that deploys and stores virtual machines (VMDKs). As a result, endpoint security products installed on virtualized machines do not see malicious actions that target the hypervisor.


Many ESXi (VMware hypervisor) systems do not have a Secure Shell (SSH) protocol by default and are usually managed through vCenter. If SSH is disabled, previously stolen administrator credentials are used to enable SSH on all ESXi systems, so:

  • Restrict access to ESXi hosts to a small number of systems and make sure that these systems have proper endpoint monitoring.
  • Make sure SSH access is disabled, or make sure it is MFA protected.
  • Make sure that passwords are unique and secure for each ESXi host, as well as for the web client.


6. Implementation of the identification and access management program (IAM)

MAKE THE FIRST STEPS NOW

Any organization can fall victim to malicious extortion campaigns with seven-figure ransom demands, but much can be done to stop criminals. The damage that companies can suffer from one such attack can be ten times higher than the cost of its prevention and modern protection. Moreover, it is necessary to take into account the fact that every malicious action on the organization leads not only to material losses, but also damages the business reputation, brand and position of the company. Avoid such risks helps iIT Distribution.

Сrowdstrike named leader in security Threat Detection, Response and Investigation of cyberincidents (MDMR)!

News

CrowdStrike CrowdStrike continues the good news streak, earning the highest scores on 11 criteria as well as in the market presence category in The Forrester Wave: Managed Detection And Response (MDR) for Q1 2021, making it a leader in its class.

As a reminder, the CrowdStrike Falcon X product was named the Forrester leader among Threat Intelligence providers last week. If you are new to this news, we recommend reading the full overview of the benefits for which CrowdStrike has received the highest marks and is universally recognized here.

CrowdStrike leverages the threat intelligence it collects through incident response and Falcon endpoint protection platforms, integrating organic threat intelligence from these sources into its MDR service delivery approach and delivering significant value to customers. In the Forrester report, CrowdStrike scored the highest possible score on 11 out of 19 criteria.

Based on the report, MDR will become a must-have in 2021. MDR has been around as a category of solutions for years, but analysts are predicting a sharp rise for the technology in the coming year, moving from a niche product to a necessity for many organizations.

For MDR, speed is one of the most important metrics, as it measures the ability to outrun increasingly sophisticated opponents. Forrester especially notes the speed of Falcon Complete:

  • Time of useful activity. Forrester scored 5/5 for its reactive deployment process, which ensures customers can be fully protected within days of installation, rather than weeks or months like many other vendors.
  • Threat response time. Forrester said customers interviewed highlighted that Falcon Complete's speed of response to security incidents is a key benefit and is key to staying ahead of attackers operating at increased speed. Falcon Complete closely monitors response times by following the 1-10-60 rule. This plays a significant role when cybercriminals can do damage in a matter of hours. In the latest report from CrowdStrike Services Cyber Front Lines, the Falcon Complete team showed that they can detect threats in the first minuteinvestigate in 6 minutes and remediate them in 29 minutes.
  • Quick support response. Customers also reported that general support issues such as help deploying the CrowdStrike Falcon or discovery questions were quickly and efficiently resolved by the Falcon Complete team.

CrowdStrike customer feedback highlights the speed with which the vendor responds to both detected security incidents and support issues in general, and the process-oriented nature of investigations as key strengths. Forrester also gave Falcon Complete the highest score possible for its presence in the market for MDR solutions. In less than three years since its first launch, Falcon Complete has grown to become one of the most widely deployed MDR solutions on the planet, providing 24/7 protection to thousands of customers representing millions of endpoints.


This recognition from Forrester strengthens CrowdStrike's position as the market leader in guided detection and response.

  • Strategy: product vision, strategic partnerships, business model, and ancillary products and services.
  • Market presence: number of customers and revenue from product line.

CrowdStrike earned the highest possible score in 17 criteria and first place in the Market Presence category, showing us that more customers trust CrowdStrike than any other vendor.

Forrester Wave: External Threat Intelligence Services Q1 2021

Recognition of a company as a leader is associated with an assessment of the quality of the threat analysis life cycle. CrowdStrike defines five stages of the cycle:

  1. Intelligence Requirements: Define plans and targets for intelligence operations.
  2. Raw intelligence: gathering baseline information.
  3. Intelligent Analysis: Answers the questions asked during the requirements phase.
  4. Dissemination: Displays analysis results in a convenient format for end users.
  5. Feedback: Get feedback from customers and improve.

This set of five criteria is critical as they form the foundation upon which each vendor's threat intelligence capabilities are built. CrowdStrike received the highest scores on four of the above five criteria. These ratings confirm that CrowdStrike is unmatched in professionalism and analytics.

CrowdStrike received the highest score in the gathering phase of all vendors. We believe this important criterion highlights CrowdStrike's ability to collect data that no one else can, resulting in threat intelligence that no other vendor can provide.

Given the ratings, it is no surprise to us that CrowdStrike scored the highest possible score on Cyber Threat Intelligence.


CrowdStrike Falcon X enables organizations of all sizes and ages to easily deploy intelligence at the Security Management Center (SOC) and receive best-in-class analytics and technical analysis backed by a dedicated team of intelligence professionals. Based on CrowdStrike Threat Graph telemetry, which correlates over 5 trillion endpoint events per week, data collected from over a million unique sources and reviewed by the CrowdStrike analyst team, which tracks over 150 hacker groups, Falcon X gives organizations insight into tactics, methods and adversary actions, allowing clients to take proactive measures to detect and defend against current and future attacks.

New Forrester study shows all the economic benefits of using the Falcon Complete!

Articles and reviews

A recent large-scale study commissioned by Forrester Consulting commissioned by CrowdStrike, entitled “The Overall Economic Impact of Using CrowdStrike Falcon Complete,” uncovered the full benefits of CrowdStrike's Managed Detection and Response (MDR) approach.

Based on customer surveys, independent analysis, and financial simulations, Forrester estimates that a customer can save nearly $ 6 million in 3 years, representing an estimated return on investment (ROI) of 403% for Falcon Complete with a ROI in less than three months.

In interviews with a diverse group of Falcon Complete customers, Forrester assessed several distinct benefits that organizations can benefit from using Falcon Complete:


    • Operational efficiency and expansion.
      Organizations gain additional capabilities equivalent to 11 full-time SOC analysts.

    • The risk of being hacked is significantly reduced.
      Forrester's analysis found that the proactive management and customization provided by the Falcon Complete team, coupled with CrowdStrike's breach prevention guarantee, almost eliminates information security risks.

    • Eliminate redundant tools.
      CrowdStrike provides improved protection and performance while reducing costs by replacing many other security tools.

    • Reduced downtime due to security incidents.
      Falcon Complete can fully remediate violations in minutes, rather than relying on reimaging or replacing compromised endpoints.

Naturally, it is necessary to evaluate all the advantages in terms of the cost of certain solutions. Throughout its research, Forrester closely monitored the costs incurred by security services throughout the endpoint security lifecycle, including costs associated with:

    • acquisition and deployment of endpoint protection technologies;

    • 24/7/365 global monitoring and control;

    • 24/7/365 proactive threat search;

    • complete remediation and recovery of systems affected by incidents;

    • service and customization.

Comparing these overarching costs to the benefits organizations get from using Falcon Complete, Forrester has posted an astounding 403% ROI on the product.

More importantly, none of the organizations surveyed reported any serious intrusions since partnering with CrowdStrike Falcon Complete. As a result, Falcon Complete delivers amazing security results at a price far lower than purchasing and creating similar enterprise security environments with other solutions, manpower, and maintenance costs.

iITD is the official partner of the International Grand Forum "BIT & BIS-2021"!

Conference

On March 3, Kiev will host the main event of the domestic ICT market - the International Grand Forum "BIT & BIS-2021"!!


This annual unique industry event promises visitors a unique atmosphere and an impressive informational charge.

Partners and experts of the event will share the latest in the IT industry, their personal experience and advice.

Company iIT Distributionan official partner of the event, together with NetBrain and CrowdStrike, will share their knowledge in the field of information security.

The main problem for cybersecurity departments in most companies remains the lack of the necessary level of automation and visual control over the cyber environment. The lack of an automated mechanism for collecting data, contextual understanding of security incidents and visual control over hidden potential threats in the network significantly increases the risk of an organization becoming a victim of a cyber attack and reduces its confidence in its own security.

That is why Sergey Aleinikov, Head of Technical Department at iIT Distribution, will tell you about CrowdStrike – Identity Threat Detection. A solution for tracking the authentication process, questionable user behavior and detecting threats in real time! Identity Threat Detection correlates events around the user, their activity and the device to improve response to a threat, thereby reducing the need for complex, time-consuming analyzes by SOC employees, and shortening the response time to events.

Expect our second talk from Andrievsky, network engineer at iIT Distribution, who will tell you how to get rid of heavy manual work and save time and money with the Network Automation from NetBrain.

Organizations are constantly adding new solutions and connected devices to their networks. Traffic is increasing, and there is no understanding of the maximum capabilities of many products and ways to provide protection. During the pandemic and the transition to remote work, new devices were added spontaneously, and there was not enough time to fully study the functionality. It is time to structure the work of IT resources and build a unified and functional information security system! How exactly? We are ready to answer all your questions!
