US cybersecurity firms Mandiant and CrowdStrike announced they have created a strategic partnership that will help joint customers investigate, remediate and defend against “increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity events that plague organizations globally”.


As part of the collaboration, Mandiant will utilize CrowdStrike’s Falcon cloud-delivered endpoint protection program for its incident response services and proactive consulting engagements for joint customers. Mandiant supports Falcon via its Security Validation and Automated Defense advantage modules.


The official announcement acknowledges the companies’ common mission to stop breaches and put customers’ needs first. “Both companies have long operated under the practice that in order to defend against tenacious cyber adversaries, there must be a combination of cutting-edge products and elite cybersecurity experts.”


“Today’s complex threat environment calls for a collaborative approach that brings together industry-leading technologies and world-class teams to build the strongest defense for customers, which is exactly what this partnership is about,” said George Kurtz, co-founder and CEO of CrowdStrike.


“CrowdStrike and Mandiant have developed reputations as go-to cybersecurity resources for public and private sector entities across the globe,” said Kevin Mandia, chief executive officer of Mandiant. “This partnership strengthens cyber defenses at a time when cyber attacks have become a notable business issue faced by organizations every day.”


*CrowdStrike and Mandiant will participate in Cybertech Europe, scheduled to take place in Rome on May 10-11, 2022. For additional information on this conference as well as tickets and registration, please visit the official website.
