Dragos Inc., has announced an expansion of their partnership with CrowdStrike featuring two new integrations providing bilateral data sharing. Now, joint customers can get visibility into IoT/OT (internet of things / operational technology) assets and vulnerabilities in CrowdStrike Falcon platform and enrich the Dragos platform with additional threat telemetry to accelerate the detection, investigation, and response of cyber incidents.

According to the CrowdStrike 2023 Global Threat Report, manufacturing was one of the most targeted industries in interactive intrusions observed last year. Industrial infrastructure sectors like electric utilities, oil and gas, and manufacturing face challenges due to increased interconnectivity between IT and OT networks, wide disbursement of cybersecurity ownership within organisations and critical technology variation between IT networks and industrial control systems.

To address these growing risks, Dragos and CrowdStrike have partnered to provide industrial organisations with new capabilities to strengthen both their IT and OT security postures by:

  • Improving OT asset visibility and threat detection: CrowdStrike Falcon Insight for IoT enriches device information in the Dragos Platform with endpoint detection and response (EDR) asset information to provide customers with visibility and protection to prevent, detect and respond to advanced threats.
  • Gathering the data they need, on a platform they know: With CrowdStrike Falcon Discover for IoT, customers can visualise the complete repository of IoT/OT assets and vulnerability information from Dragos through a single console in the Falcon platform.
  • Receiving early warnings of OT threat activity network: The Dragos ICS (industrial control systems) /OT Threat Detection app provides CrowdStrike customers additional early warning detection capabilities with the complete Dragos ICS Indicators of Compromise (IOC) repository.
  • Simplifying the OT cybersecurity journey: Through the CrowdStrike Services Catalog, joint customers can have Dragos evaluate the cybersecurity posture of their OT environment with an ICS/OT Architecture Review.

“This partnership between Dragos and CrowdStrike brings industrial organisations complete situational awareness and speed in defending their entire, interconnected OT and IT networks like never before,” says Robert M. Lee, chief executive officer and co-founder of Dragos, Inc. “Through the integration of best-in-class OT and IT cybersecurity solutions, organisations now can monitor, detect and respond to threats moving across their IT and OT environments. Defenders have maximum visibility into events happening at the endpoints and other devices, no matter where they are.”

“In today’s threat environment, cyber attackers are moving laterally from IT networks into OT networks to wreak havoc on industrial infrastructure, significantly damaging operations and brand reputation for impacted companies,” says Daniel Bernard, chief business officer of CrowdStrike. “Together with Dragos, we’re empowering industrial organisations to outpace adversaries in converging IT and OT environments by enabling full visibility across networks and providing the critical context needed to rapidly investigate and remediate threats.”
