Cybersecurity company CrowdStrike has inked a deal with and EY to integrate its digital defences and risk management solutions within the enterprise.

The teamup will combine CrowdStrike’s cybersecurity technologies with EY’s consulting capabilities and cyber services. The collaboration will especifically focus on addressing cyber risk and threat management, cyber incident response and cyber threat intelligence.

“EY professionals can combine transformational consulting experience with the CrowdStrike platform to help businesses establish proactive cybersecurity plans to both mitigate and prevent potential cyber attacks.”

The two companies particularly celebrated CrowdStrike’s Falcon platform for its scalable cloud-based architecture that can play critical role in protecting a workforce dispersed to working remotely due to the coronavirus crisis.

“CrowdStrike Falcon has been selected by elite businesses worldwide as a transformative solution that delivers simplicity, speed and efficacy for an overwhelming cybersecurity threat operations landscape, helping security teams to quickly identify and stop breaches before they occur,” said George Kurtz, co-founder and CEO of CrowdStrike.
