Pax8 and CrowdStrike Forge Partnership Aiming to Simplify and Strengthen Security for MSPs

By Matthew Vulpis

With more than 29,000 MSP partners on board, Pax8 announced it has entered a strategic partnership with CrowdStrike, a cloud-delivered endpoint, cloud workload, identity, and data protection provider.

Pax8 has cloud-enabled more than 400,000 enterprises through its channel partners and processes one million monthly transactions. The new alliance will give MSPs access to bundled product offerings of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform directly on the Pax8 Marketplace.

The companies explained that the partnership is the result of a shared commitment to empowering MSPs in effectively mitigating cyber risks for the businesses they serve, ensuring enhanced protection in today’s evolving threat landscape.

The Falcon platform has emerged as a defining extended detection and response (XDR) ecosystem of the cyber security industry. With CrowdStrike, partners can keep customers ahead of an expanding threat environment by delivering AI-powered protection across endpoints, cloud, identity, and data from a unified, modern XDR platform.

“Pax8 is thrilled about our partnership with the cyber security market leader CrowdStrike, as our collaboration will bring together two powerhouses in the Security and IT industry to deliver cutting-edge cyber security solutions in the channel,” said John Street, Chief Executive Officer at Pax8. “As the cyber security landscape becomes increasingly complex, Pax8 realizes the continuous demand of our partners for top-tier security solutions that can be seamlessly integrated into their cloud offerings. By teaming up with CrowdStrike, MSPs will stay ahead of evolving threats, delivering exceptional value to their customers through the market’s leading XDR platform.”

“Pax8 and CrowdStrike have a shared appreciation for the critical role MSPs play in protecting businesses of all sizes and helping IT and security teams close the skills gap to take on modern adversaries. This partnership brings the unparalleled capabilities of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to the leading cloud marketplace for MSPs,” CrowdStrike co-founder and Chief Executive Officer George Kurtz stated.

“MSPs will be able to instantly deploy CrowdStrike — without a reboot — and take advantage of consolidated billing and provisioning automation. Pax8 and CrowdStrike are uniquely positioned to empower MSPs to support their customers’ cybersecurity journeys — from device to identity to cloud to data and beyond — with the same cutting-edge XDR technology selected by the world’s leading and largest enterprises,” Kurtz added.

During a recent CrowdStrike earnings call, Kurtz also said, “This partnership provides CrowdStrike a born-in-the-cloud route to market for MSP consumption and a prime opportunity to displace the legacy AV and next-gen product vendors Pax8 partners use today. MSPs are increasingly turning to the Pax8 Marketplace for ease of product purchase, rapid software deployment, and fully integrated billing to run their businesses, including cyber security.”

The strategic alliance between Pax8 and CrowdStrike represents a significant milestone in Pax8’s efforts to expand its global market presence and offer industry-leading security solutions to partners. This collaboration creates a powerful synergy that brings immense benefits to partners, customers, and the overall growth and innovation of the IT channel.

“The partnership between Pax8 and CrowdStrike unlocks the synergistic potential of our innovative cloud marketplace and CrowdStrike’s exceptional cyber security solutions,” Street said. “With our combined strengths, we are well-positioned to drive advancements and provide unparalleled value in the realm of cyber security within the channel. The palpable excitement surrounding this partnership reflects the shared anticipation of the opportunities it will bring to both companies.”

CrowdStrike has redefined modern security with one of the world’s most advanced cloud-native platforms for protecting critical areas of enterprise risk: endpoints and cloud workloads, identity, and data. The CrowdStrike Falcon platform leverages real-time indicators of attack, threat intelligence, evolving adversary tradecraft, and enriched telemetry from across the enterprise to deliver hyper-accurate detections, automated protection and remediation, elite threat hunting, and prioritized observability of vulnerabilities.

Purpose-built in the cloud with a single, lightweight-agent architecture, the Falcon platform delivers rapid and scalable deployment, superior protection and performance, reduced complexity, and immediate time to value.

The CrowdStrike offering is set to launch in the Pax8 Marketplace later this year.
