CrowdStrike Powers MXDR by Deloitte, Offering Customers Risk Mitigation with Powerful Customized and Managed Security Services

Deloitte, a leader in managed security services, has launched MXDR by Deloitte — a Managed Extended Detection and Response suite of offerings — within which the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform will power a number of solutions.

MXDR by Deloitte combines an integrated, composable and modular managed detection and response SaaS platform with managed security services in a unified offering of advanced, military-grade threat hunting, detection, response and remediation capabilities.

The CrowdStrike Falcon platform is one of the world’s most advanced cloud-native platforms for protecting critical areas of enterprise risk, including endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data. The CrowdStrike Falcon platform provides highly standardized, cloud-delivered, effective and easy to use SaaS solutions.

“Many of our clients have dozens — if not hundreds — of security tools in their arsenals, which can be a challenge to manage. We developed MXDR by Deloitte to help organizations consolidate into one managed services and solutions suite to help improve ease, efficiency and effectiveness in cyber program management,” said Curt Aubley, MXDR by Deloitte leader and a Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory managing director, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “We asked CrowdStrike to be part of our MXDR offering due to their technological capabilities and open API platform — both of which enable integration into our MXDR platform and scalability that Deloitte clients demand.”

Enhance Visibility, Improve Incident Response and Lower Operational Costs

Working together, CrowdStrike’s solutions and Deloitte’s advisory services are designed to help organizations identify security gaps, prioritize risk-mitigation initiatives and help improve their risk posture. In particular, CrowdStrike technologies in MXDR by Deloitte will focus on helping clients:

  1. Increase real-time multi-platform visibility for enterprise assets across on-premises, cloud and container workloads — including the capabilities to research common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs), examine threat actor profiles and targets, understand all applications running in their environment, and search to see versions, hosts and users that may pose a risk
  2. Improve mean time to prevent, detect, respond and mitigate vulnerabilities in security assets and related cyberattacks
  3. Reduce business costs through proactive identification and improved response efforts to unknown cyberattacks with additional benefits of consolidation, lowered complexity and total cost of ownership

With its newly expanded MXDR suite, Deloitte has positioned the CrowdStrike Falcon platform as a core enabling technology for multiple services in the MXDR suite and is adopting multiple CrowdStrike modules to power the services.
