CrowdStrike and Google Cloud strengthen alliance to enhance cloud security

Cybersecurity company CrowdStrike Holdings Inc. today announced an expanded strategic partnership with Google Cloud designed to stop breaches across multicloud and multivendor environments.

Under the expanded partnership, artificial intelligence-powered cloud services from Google Cloud and proactive threat-hunting capability from the CrowdStrike Falcon XDR platform will be offered together to give customers the tools they need to stop breaches across any cloud or vendor.

CrowdStrike, citing its own research, notes that cloud intrusions grew 75% in 2023 and that one of the core reasons is that adversaries are faster than ever, breaking into customer environments in as little as two minutes. To protect against modern cloud threats, CrowdStrike argues, customers need a holistic, intuitive, managed security solution that eliminates complexity and serves as a force multiplier for security and DevOps teams. This is where the expanded partnership with Google Cloud comes in.

Through the pairing of Google Cloud and CrowdStrike Falcon XDR, Google customers can accelerate time to value and platform adoption by accessing protection from the Google Cloud Marketplace, including CrowdStrike Falcon Cloud Security, CrowdStrike Falcon LogScale, CrowdStrike Falcon Identity Protection and CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection.

Google Cloud is also integrating additional products with the CrowdStrike platform, including new support for Kubernetes Admission Controller, GKE Autopilot and Google Cloud Run.

“Our expanded strategic alliance with Google aligns with organizations’ multicloud strategies: by integrating Google Cloud products with the Falcon platform, we are broadening our global reach, giving organizations access to the cloud security they need to stop breaches,” said Daniel Bernard, chief business officer at CrowdStrike.

David Vellante, chief analyst of theCUBE Research, SiliconANGLE Media’s research service, did a deep dive into how CrowdStrike is separating from the cybersecurity pack in March. In the analysis, Vellante writes that CrowdStrike’s earnings print highlights the company’s impressive momentum.
