A recent press release states, “CrowdStrike® Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, today announced that it has expanded the capabilities of the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform by introducing a new vulnerability management module, CrowdStrike Falcon Spotlight. CrowdStrike is the only next-generation vendor offering the full spectrum of endpoint security capabilities — next-generation AV, endpoint detection and response, managed threat hunting, IT hygiene, threat intelligence and now, vulnerability management — fully delivered via the cloud from a single lightweight agent.”
The release goes on, “With this Autumn platform release, CrowdStrike fundamentally changes how organizations conduct vulnerability management by delivering continuous, real-time visibility into software vulnerabilities in their environments. For the first time, these vulnerabilities are prioritized based on observed threat activity in the customer environment. Prioritization based on threat activity enables customers to immediately identify the systems that pose the greatest risk and remediate them before the security incident escalates into a breach. Consistent with CrowdStrike’s vision of a single agent for endpoint security, Falcon Spotlight adds a vulnerability management capability without requiring an additional agent on the endpoint and affords customers the opportunity to consolidate security tools and reclaim precious system resources on their endpoints.”
