By |Published On: October 2nd, 2023|

At Hurricane Labs, we’re committed to keeping you informed about the latest developments in cybersecurity, and today, we’re thrilled to share some exciting news from CrowdStrike. The security landscape is evolving rapidly, and CrowdStrike continues to lead the way as the modern security platform of choice for the XDR era.

This week, at Fal.Con 2023, CrowdStrike unveiled the next generation of the Falcon platform—the ‘Raptor’ release. This update introduces foundational upgrades that promise to elevate your cybersecurity defenses to a whole new level.

What Does the ‘Raptor’ Release Bring to the Table?

The ‘Raptor’ release isn’t just an incremental update; it’s a game changer. It’s designed to enhance CrowdStrike’s market-leading endpoint security, cloud security, and identity protection solutions. But that’s not all—it unlocks XDR (Extended Detection and Response) and AI capabilities that add unprecedented value to the Falcon platform.

Here are some key highlights of the ‘Raptor’ release:

  1. Lightning-Fast Data Handling: With petabyte-scale data collection, lightning-fast data search, and storage capabilities powered by Falcon LogScale technology, you’ll experience unparalleled speed and efficiency in incident investigation.
  2. Modernized Detections: The update introduces a fresh and intuitive detection experience for CrowdStrike’s popular EPP (Endpoint Protection Platform) and EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) offerings. This means you’ll have a more user-friendly interface to work with, making it easier to identify and respond to threats.
  3. AI-Powered Analyst Experience: The ‘Raptor’ release reimagines the analyst experience by putting AI at the center of incident management. This empowers security analysts to detect and disrupt increasingly sophisticated adversary tradecraft more rapidly.

What Does This Mean for You?

As a Hurricane Labs customer or partner, you’re in for a treat. The ‘Raptor’ release equips you with unprecedented data, speed, and AI capabilities to detect and prevent modern threats. Here’s how it benefits you:

  • Accelerated Incident Investigations: Investigate incidents at lightning speed, reducing the time it takes to respond to threats effectively.
  • Comprehensive Protection: Close gaps in your attack surface and strengthen your defenses to stop breaches before they occur.
  • XDR and Embedded AI: Gain access to comprehensive XDR and embedded AI capabilities to outpace adversaries.

When Can You Expect It?

The ‘Raptor’ release will be rolled out gradually to the CrowdStrike partner community and customer base over the next year. The initial wave is set to begin in late September. Rest assured, we’ll keep you informed about the rollout timeline and provide the necessary support to ensure a seamless transition.
