An increasingly complex threat environment coupled with the widespread digital transformation that organizations have undergone has made it necessary to institute multi-layered risk-mitigation strategies to secure cloud workloads and endpoints. This latest integration from CrowdStrike for AWS allows organizations to implement a modern enterprise security approach where network-layer protection works in conjunction with cloud workload protection controls to defend against sophisticated threat activity. This allows customers to build a seamless line of defense across cloud workloads hosted in Amazon VPCs across multiple AWS accounts.
“Organizations must deploy a multilayered security strategy in order to fortify their security posture against advanced threats from the multiple attack vectors that target their corporate networks,” said Andrew Thomas, general manager, Perimeter Protection, Amazon Web Services, Inc.
“The integration of CrowdStrike Falcon intelligence feeds and automation capabilities for AWS Network Firewall advances protections for our joint customers across their AWS footprint, by providing a continuous line of defense from the network to the workload.”
