Enterprise automation software company UiPath and cloud-delivered endpoint and workload protection provider CrowdStrike, have partnered to deliver a new level of security protection and visibility with the UiPath Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform and the CrowdStrike Falcon platform. The partnership offers joint customers unprecedented capabilities to correlate events to originating RPA processes to enable and accelerate threat hunting, investigation and remediation with CrowdStrike for their UiPath environment. Together, CrowdStrike and UiPath automatically detect threat activity, whether initiated by humans or robots, to grant the security team real-time visibility across the environment and enable proactive responses. The ability to quickly and easily distinguish between an RPA-initiated process and a human-initiated process will provide security teams with real-time visibility across the environment for proactive threat hunting, incident investigation and remediation. The partnership provides joint customers:
- Fortified protection: The first-of-its-kind integration provides unparalleled coverage to defend against all types of attacks from malware to sophisticated and stealthy nation-state attacks. Full endpoint detection and response (EDR) prevents silent failure by capturing raw events, including those originating from RPA processes, to ensure automation is included in an organization’s strong security posture.
- Complete visibility: The security organization gains better insight into more of the organization’s systems, specifically germane robot actions. Rich, contextual telemetry enables deep understanding of the attacks in the environment and reduces time and effort to investigate and respond to incidents, without compromising business agility.
- Increased efficiency: Tight integration between UiPath and CrowdStrike adds rich contextual RPA details to endpoint events, streamlining hunting and investigation across the enterprise in a single console, and speeding granular, targeted response action to ensure business continuity in the event of an incident. It also simplifies security operations by using the same lightweight Falcon agent, management console, and cloud-native architecture.
