CARLSBAD, CA --- Proficio, provider of managed detection and response (MDR) services, has partnered with CrowdStrike, experts in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, to help customers deploy comprehensive security technology and services to protect their digital assets from the endpoint to the cloud. The partnership further delivers on Proficio’s best-of-breed approach to managed security services delivery, making it easier for enterprise customers to keep business-critical data secure using the technology that best meets their needs.
The growing cybersecurity skills gap is putting significant pressure on IT security teams tasked with investigating thousands of security alerts per day – many of which turn out to be false positives. The powerful combination of Proficio’s ProSOC, a family of always-on managed security services, and CrowdStrike’s endpoint security solutions, provides crucial context to each event, reducing the risk of a security breach.
“Proficio and CrowdStrike share a common goal: to stop breaches. Both companies are committed to delivering the most advanced endpoint protection, services and security expertise required to combat today’s complex threat landscape,” said George Kurtz, CEO of CrowdStrike. “Proficio’s approach to managed detection and response is a natural extension of our endpoint protection solution, helping to meet the needs of our enterprise customers.”
Through this partnership, CrowdStrike alerts are sent to Proficio’s cloud-based ProSOC platform which correlates endpoint event data with other relevant logs sources. Proficio SOC analysts review and investigate alerts to provide additional context and illustrate the significance of each data point. IT teams can view their security posture through an intuitive dashboard, and operations are streamlined by delivering alerts from a single point of notification. Proficio ProActive Defense provides orchestrated incident response services, such as programmatically blocking IP traffic from abusive attackers.
“CrowdStrike’s next-generation endpoint protection solution complements the core strengths of our ProSOC managed detection and response portfolio. Together, we provide customers with the proactive, actionable protection they need across the entire enterprise network,” said Tim McElwee, co-founder, president and chairman of the board of Proficio.
