New integration provides customers with industry-leading insights and capabilities to augment employee defense with personalized protections aligned to individual vulnerabilities
SAN FRANCISCO – September, 13, 2023 – Elevate Security, an innovator in Human Risk Management, today announced an expanded partnership expansion with CrowdStrike enabling customers to to harness the power of the industry-leading CrowdStrike Falcon Platform to accelerate detection of human cyber risks before a potential incident occurs. CrowdStrike’s strategic investment vehicle, Falcon Fund, is invested in Elevate. Elevate Security solutions, including the new integration, are available now on the CrowdStrike Store.
Simple, targeted human interaction remains a staple in threat actors’ toolkits. In the 2023 CrowdStrike Global Threat Report, CrowdStrike threat hunters and intelligence analysts observed an increase in social engineering using human interaction, such as vishing, to successfully download malware or circumvent multifactor authentication. Cybercriminals only need to target a small group of high-risk individuals to ultimately open an entire organization to significant risk. Recent research from Elevate revealed only 8% of employees are responsible for 80% of all security incidents.
With the integration of world-class security telemetry from the CrowdStrike Falcon platform with the Elevate platform, defenders can now:
- Rapidly identify and classify employee human risk potential based on hundreds of risk characteristics
- Predict and quantify vulnerabilities of each individual, facilitating a scalable, tailored approach to managing human risk.
- Get immediate notification of increased human risk through a unified console delivered by the Falcon platform for response and remediation
“Elevate customers are already seeing up to a 70% reduction in account compromise, phishing, and data loss events. Adding high-fidelity data from the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to the Elevate platform gives defenders another simple, transparent, and effective method to apply personalized protections aligned to individual vulnerabilities,” stated Elevate founder and CEO, Robert Fly. “We are thrilled to be working closely with CrowdStrike to bring this game-changing technology to our customers, and look forward to engaging defenders at our upcoming joint webinar and during Fal.Con.”
“The implication is that current approaches to employee defense will not be sufficient to protect the enterprise from human cyber risk going forward,” stated Edward Amoroso, founder and CEO of research and advisory firm, Tag Cyber. “A new methodology is required. Human risk intelligence, pioneered by Elevate Security, is a good example of a new approach that can drive human cyber risk to acceptably low levels.”
Elevate’s seamless integration with today’s modern security stack, such as email and web gateways, endpoints, and other tools, provides a comprehensive view of employee behavior and human-targeted threats. For many global enterprises, Elevate is now the source of truth for human risk, leading to rapid improvements in protecting employees from human-centered attacks.
