The recent Biden administration executive order on cyber security emphasises multiple cyber security-focused priorities for government agencies, including fundamental proactive security measures, such as endpoint detection and response, incident management, threat hunting and the prioritisation of cloud.
In line with bolstering security measures, CrowdStrike has made the Falcon Complete available for GovCloud. Falcon Complete is designed to provide cloud-native managed detection and response (MDR) for the public sector, protecting endpoints through powerful AI, comprehensive threat intelligence and 24/7/365 support from defenders who manage, monitor and remediate threats that plague government agencies.

"Falcon Complete for GovCloud offers cutting-edge MDR to empower security professionals through powerful AI, expert threat intelligence and human defenders who can stop cyber criminals better than technology alone,” Kulkarni said.
“In the fight against adversaries, it’s imperative that the public sector has access to the best technology and services on the market.
