A GenAI Cybersecurity Collab: CrowdStrike and NVIDIA, to the Rescue

By Alex Passett

As we know (fellow MSP Today Editor Greg Tavarez has written extensively about this topic), the cybersecurity landscape is fraught with ever-more sophisticated attacks as bad actors build up their arsenals. Even Microsoft has reported that cyber criminal groups have only become more adept at evolving their techniques, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic. In such a seriously dynamic environment, well-intentioned business leaders must stand together to propel innovative security solutions into teams’ hands.

Such is the case with some of this week’s latest partnership news: CrowdStrike, a provider of cloud-native endpoint protection and a plethora of other cybersecurity platform measures, struck a critical deal to strategically collaborate with NVIDIA, a titan in the world of accelerated computing capabilities, high-performing enterprise-grade AI solutions, and other supplemental products and services.

What can be said about CrowdStrike and NVIDIA that hasn’t yet been said? Certainly not terribly much, but folks may not be as aware of the 2024 CrowdStrike Global Threat Report which claims that, as modern attacks grow in severity (i.e. average breakout times now being down to 62 minutes, with faster and faster attacks on the rise), future-conscious organizations require more robust security measures (particularly AI-powered security) to gain the speed and automation necessary to stay ahead of breaches. Protection is everything.

Hence, this CrowdStrike + NVIDIA collab.

Per George Kurtz, co-founder and CEO of CrowdStrike:

“Since our founding, CrowdStrike has pioneered the use of AI in cybersecurity. Our customers from all verticals, segments, and geographies are increasing adoption of AI/ML across their businesses, looking to generative AI for efficiency, speed, and innovation. Our collaboration with NVIDIA combines the power of two innovative industry leaders to not only help customers meet and exceed necessary security requirements, but also increase adoption of AI technologies for business acceleration and value creation.”

And per Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA:

“Cybersecurity is inherently a data problem — the more data that enterprises can process, the more events they can detect and address. Pairing NVIDIA accelerated computing and generative AI with CrowdStrike cybersecurity can give enterprises unprecedented visibility into threats to help them better protect their businesses.”

That’s basically all we know, at this time. CrowdStrike will leverage NVIDIA solutions like NVIDIA Morpheus and NVIDIA NIM microservices to bring custom LLM-powered applications to enterprise defenses. This will improve threat hunting, supply chain attack detection, anomaly identification efforts and more.

“Customers can benefit from having the best underlying security data to operationalize their selection of AI architectures with confidence,” stated the official press release, “quickly turning enterprise data into powerful insights and actions to drive performance and cost optimizations.”

We’ll update you, readers, as we learn more.
