Mandiant Managed Defense Expands to Support CrowdStrike and SentinelOne
To support our ongoing mission of helping organizations around the world defend against persistent and sophisticated cyber threats, we’re excited to announce the general availability of Mandiant Managed Defense for CrowdStrike Falcon® Insight XDR™ and SentinelOne Singularity XDR. By partnering with elite technology companies, we're helping organizations maximize their investments. Mutual customers benefit from the strengths of the technologies deployed in their environment along with a shared mission focus that can lead to deep technical integrations.
The Power of Technology + Strategic Partnerships
Mandiant, now part of Google Cloud, remains focused on providing customers with the leading capabilities to help them strengthen their security programs. And we believe customers should have a choice about the products that better suit their environments and use cases. We augment security technology with our expertise and intelligence and allow our customers to choose the technology that works well for them. Shared customers can use the preferred security tools already at their disposal, backed by Mandiant expertise that can strengthen their ability to detect and respond to threats.
“CrowdStrike and Mandiant continue to work together to deepen our strategic alliance and offer customers the optimum choice for meeting their cybersecurity needs, demonstrating our mutual commitment to stopping breaches,” said Tom Etheridge, chief global services officer at CrowdStrike. “Organizations of all sizes and maturity across the globe will be able to leverage the industry-leading CrowdStrike Falcon platform and Mandiant’s consulting services and support to meet their security requirements and business resiliency initiatives.”
“The cybersecurity threat landscape is rapidly evolving, with attacks becoming more numerous and sophisticated by the minute” said Ric Smith, Chief Product and Technology Officer, SentinelOne. “ To keep their networks, data and systems safe, security teams need easy access to advanced, intelligence-led solutions that empower them to detect and quickly respond to threats before they impact their business, and we are pleased that Mandiant is expanding support for Mandiant Managed Defense to SentinelOne’s Singularity™ XDR, to help deliver it.”
Expanded Endpoint and Beyond
In 2021, Managed Defense took the first steps towards an open and independent ecosystem, partnering with Microsoft to support customers of Defender. Today, our joint Mandiant and Google Cloud journey includes technology infusions of Chronicle, integrated access to additional intelligence from VirusTotal and Google, and speed at which we can now innovate to help protect customers, culminating in a world-class MDR experience.
“We are pleased to work with elite technology partners who share our mission and focus to help customers confidently maximize their technology investments and strengthen their cyber defenses,” said Dave Baumgartner, Managed Security Solutions Leader at Google Cloud. “The future of Managed Defense is exciting as we broaden support for security technologies and continue to advance our service with additional Google capabilities that will help us detect, investigate, and respond to threats with the speed and scale customers have come to expect from Google.”
Helping to protect our customers before an event occurs is routine for Managed Defense. In the past year alone, we discovered and protected customers from significant events (both in and out of the headlines) such as AVADDON Ransomware Group, DPRK WhatsApp phishing campaigns, and various GOOTLOADER campaigns.
Managed Defense customers can benefit from the expertise of our investigators in triaging incidents, proactive threat hunting from our team of experts who are skilled in identifying unknown threats inside customer environments, and support from security consultants to work hand in hand with their teams to help restore regular business operations.
We will continue to innovate Managed Defense and expand the support and management of additional endpoint, network, cloud, and other technologies to stay ahead of new and emerging threats. We are committed to relentless innovation in our mission to enable customers to defend against advanced cyber threats.
