Acalvio Partners with CrowdStrike to Strengthen Cybersecurity Defenses

By Stefania Viscusi

In a strategic move to combat the escalating threats that sophisticated identity-based attacks pose on today’s businesses, cyber deception technology provider Acalvio Technologies has announced a partnership with cybersecurity company CrowdStrike to integrate its technology with CrowdStrike Falcon Identity Protection.

This move will provide customers with an advanced defense mechanism against evolving cyber threats.

More organizations today are recognizing the need for advanced security measures to safeguard their digital assets and sensitive information. Thus, this new partnership will empower them to stay one step ahead of these bad actors and bolster their overall cyber resilience.

The integration (now available on the CrowdStrike Store) gives CrowdStrike customers access to tools to use Acalvio's automation and AI-based recommendations so they can quickly create and deploy honeytokens and honey accounts via Falcon Identity Protection.

One of the biggest problems defenders are up against today is that threat actors only need to succeed once to breach a system. This makes it imperative to adopt innovative approaches to defense. Honeytokens are specially crafted accounts that are embedded within genuine resources like endpoints, making them indistinguishable from real data. By deploying honeytoken accounts within Active Directory (AD), organizations can lure and divert attackers away from actual identities and sensitive assets.

The Acalvio solution also offers seamless deployment and efficient lifecycle management of advanced and fingerprint-resistant honeytokens across enterprise endpoints.

Commenting on the collaboration, Elia Zaitsev, Chief Technology Officer at CrowdStrike, emphasized the importance of honeytokens in the battle against identity-based attacks. Zaitsev stated, "As identity-based attacks continue to rise, we see honeytokens playing a critical role to lure adversaries from high-value resources."

By integrating Acalvio's expertise into the CrowdStrike platform, customers gain access to an augmented defense-in-depth strategy that can swiftly adapt to emerging threats.
