EY has bolstered its cyber security offering, onboarding CrowdStrike's ransomware response platform.
Consultancy firm Ernst & Young (EY) has selected CrowdStrike Falcon as one of its cyber security technology platforms.
The platform is expected to support EY’s ransomware readiness and resilience, incident response (IR), and recovery and remediation offerings, while also enhancing its Zero Trust capabilities.
According to the firms, the CrowdStrike Falcon platform would be complemented by EY’s Next-Generation Security Operations and Response (NGSO&R) services in a bid to provide protection and detection capabilities through cyber threat intelligence and round-the-clock threat monitoring.
The newly selected CrowdStrike offering is designed to provide immediate, real-time visibility into an organisations’ environments, helping to identify and eliminate potential compromises, and thwart “silent failure”.
“We continue to hear from our customers that dangerous cyber actors threaten the livelihood of their business operations,” Shawn Henry, CrowdStrike chief security officer and president of services, said.
“CrowdStrike and EY have teamed up to offer our joint customers market-leading technology paired with leading transformational consulting services to aid organisations and positively impact their business objectives through the prioritisation of cyber security.
“We are thrilled about the maturing of this collaboration and look forward to helping more businesses around the world grow their business resiliency and security posture.”
Dave Burg, EY Americas cybersecurity leader, added, “The threat of cybersecurity attacks remains top of mind for EY clients and the expanded global alliance with CrowdStrike will be invaluable as they continue navigating increasing cyber threats.
“Through this collaboration, EY and CrowdStrike teams aim to address growing concerns regarding ransomware and how to manage a potential incident through the new Ransomware Readiness and Resilience, and IR, Recovery and Remediation solutions.
“Strengthening this alliance means supporting clients when they’re most vulnerable so they can focus on running their business.”
