Counterflow AI, a systems security provider delivering artificial intelligence for IT operations, is partnering with cloud-delivered cybersecurity software firm CrowdStrike to accelerate threat detection and response for business security teams.
CounterFlow AI is enhancing its machine learning engine with Falcon X, CrowdStrike’s customizable, automated incident investigation platform. According to the joint release, the integration allows organizations to gather more data from threat insights gained from their networks’ endpoints without creating a large security stack or larger data storage footprint.
The companies said the integration brings more automation to the way security teams assess streaming network data with real-time contextualized threat intelligence, recording just the data with a high investigative value.
Customers will be alerted with detailed indicators of compromise, like domain and IP information, to help security teams detect existing threats and perform incident investigations more effectively and efficiently.
CounterFlow AI said its ThreatEye AIOps platform for network forensics is designed for hybrid cloud deployments, merging machine learning with full packet capture and visualization to provide insights. The platform integrates seamlessly with CrowdStrike’s cloud-native intelligent, single-agent Falcon platform, which CounterFlow AI said enables frictionless deployment at scale to stream high-fidelity data to the cloud, providing businesses with prioritized threat analysis and response.
In a statement, CounterFlow AI co-founder and CEO Randy Caldejon said the firm is bringing new network forensic tools to organizations to help increase the signal-to-noise ratio of their network data.
“That requires best-in-class threat intelligence, and there is no better firm who possesses the quality and scale of capabilities than CrowdStrike,” he said. “Together, we’re helping security teams start investigations sooner and from a more confident jumping off point.”
CrowdStrike’s Chief Product Officer Amol Kulkarni said CounterFlow AI’s approach is a more intuitive way to eliminate time-consuming activities associated with capturing data flowing through an enterprise’s network.
“By integrating the benefits of CrowdStrike Falcon with CounterFlow AI ThreatEye, we are offering customers contextualized threat intelligence to help enable security teams to move from a reactive state to a proactive one,” he said. “This powerful combination delivers a more efficient way to help organizations conduct investigations, including the critical intelligence necessary to get ahead of known and unknown threats.”
