About the Abnormal + CrowdStrike Integration
Organizations face relentless email attack campaigns that bypass traditional security solutions and laterally spread across endpoints, cloud, and network assets.
To mitigate and investigate these complex attacks, security analysts must manually build a timeline of attacker activity across siloed domains to make meaningful judgments. This complicates the incident response, increasing the risk of additional attacks and losses to the organization.
The CrowdStrike and Abnormal integration delivers the capability security analysts need to discover and remediate compromised email accounts and endpoints swiftly. When Abnormal's Account Takeover capability detects that an email account has potentially been compromised, it automatically sends a signal to CrowdStrike's Identity Protection Platform to be added to the Watched User list, which can be configured to allow analysts to contain hosts or force reauthentication on an endpoint device.
Now, when CrowdStrike's Identity Protection creates a new identity-based incident, it creates an account takeover case within the Abnormal platform. Security analysts can quickly remediate the email account by logging users out, terminating the session, or forcing a password reset.
Earlier today, Abnormal detected unusual activity and triggered a potential account takeover, opening a new case, and alerting the SOC team. Through the CrowdStrike integration, Abnormal will also add the impacted user to the Watched User list and CrowdStrike's Identity Protection Platform. Depending on how CrowdStrike is configured, analysts can now prompt the user for reauthentication, reset their AD password, or other response actions that limit the risks beyond cloud email.
In CrowdStrike, an identity-based incident was raised because the solution detected a password brute force attack. Through the integration, CrowdStrike created a new account takeover case in the Abnormal platform. Security analysts can see the source of the case as CrowdStrike and information from the incident is used as a signal in the activity timeline, facilitating investigation, remediation decisions, and response to endpoint-borne attacks.
Through this partnership, Abnormal and CrowdStrike are offering an integration focused on behavior detection of security incidents, combining world-class technologies that will provide joint customers with email attack detection and compromised account remediation capabilities that are unmatched in the industry.
This integration is the beginning of a multi-faceted partnership between the two companies. CrowdStrike and Abnormal Plan to announce XDR and Threat Intelligence integrations in the months to come.
