Airgap Joins CrowdStrike Falcon Zero-Trust Assessment
SANTA CLARA, California., January 13, 2021 - Airgap Networks, the leading provider of anti-ransomware cybersecurity solutions, has joined CrowdStrike, Inc.’s Falcon ZTA platform to add an extra layer of zero-trust security to all lateral communication and access controls.
The CrowdStrike Zero Trust Assessment (ZTA) helps organizations maintain overall device security posture by providing metrics designed to identify threats and subsequently remediate security policies. Integrating the Falcon ZTA with Airgap’s Ransomware Kill Switch™ and Secure Application Access™ solutions will reduce clients’ potential attack vectors by making sure that both user and device are authorized to access their networks.
The zero trust assessment dashboard provides network IT and SOC administration with granular visibility and actionable alerts based on real-time threat intelligence to improve the security posture in enterprise networks across the top. Airgap’s integration with CrowdStrike Falcon Zero Trust Assessment score allows Airgap customers to generate insights from metric-driven access policies before allowing users access to sensitive assets.
“Airgap and CrowdStrike’s joint solution gives organizations a proactive method for reducing their attack surface,” explained Airgap Chief Technology Officer, Satish Mohan. “They can identify specific Ransomware Kill Switch™ actions that improve security posture while giving network administrators in companies that employ remote workers greater control over who is connecting to corporate resources and on what devices.”
The integration extends Ransomware Kill Switch’s functionality in several valuable ways:
ZTA Score integration: Maps CrowdStrike ZTA endpoint risk score to tiered security policies within Ransomware Kill Switch™.
Policy grouping and automation per ZTA risk-score: Autonomous policy group creation per risk-score to enhance complete device security posture.
Zero trust enforcement via ransomware detection: Zero Trust Assessment API enables customers to automatically deploy Airgap enforcement whenever CrowdStrike detects ransomware.
Low ZTA automatic quarantine: Automatic quarantine of enterprise devices displaying low ZTA scores to shut off infected endpoints’ network access and prevent malicious access.
Airgap’s integration with CrowdStrike Falcon ZTA allows customers to dramatically reduce the attack surface and the combined solution prevents lateral threat movement across the organization. The Airgap solution is designed to protect high-value assets in Manufacturing, Healthcare, and Critical Infrastructure verticals where a compromise of core operational systems can disrupt mission-critical processes. Through this integration, our joint customers can now leverage a consolidated SaaS management console to configure, manage and update their network access policies based on a device posture and health score provided through CrowdStrike Falcon ZTA. In addition, customers can automate highly customized responses to suspected malicious activity across their network through Airgap’s interface to CrowdStrike’s endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions.
