**CrowdStrike and EY (Ernst & Young) expand global alliance**

I greatly shortened this and paraphrased in some places. This is bound to be a significant positive for Crowdstrike.

CrowdStrike and EY (Ernst & Young) expand global alliance to deliver Cloud Security and Observability services

CrowdStrike and EY join forces to empower DevSecOps teams to benefit from the deployment of CrowdStrike Cloud Security and CrowdStrike Falcon LogScale

Crowdstrike, a leader in cloud-delivered protection of endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data, and Ernst & Young (EY US), a leading organization in cyber risk consulting services, today announced an expanded relationship to deliver Cloud Security and Observability services globally, powered by the Crowdstrike Falcon platform. This collaboration expands on previously announced alliance services including: Ransomware Readiness and Resilience; Incident Response (IR), Recovery and Remediation; Identity Assessment; and Zero Trust capabilities….

Cloud Security

The EY Cloud Security service offering leverages CrowdStrike Cloud Security, a CNAPP solution with agent-based and agentless protection, with EY’s cybersecurity professionals to accelerate the journey of clients through alignment and implementation of appropriate controls as part of the shared responsibility model. This enables DevOps and infrastructure runtime scanning teams to:

· Securely move to the cloud: Build a secure and compliant path to production by assessing, architecting, implementing and optimizing key cloud security controls, whether hybrid or multi-cloud.

· Secure business-critical workloads: Reduce the overhead, friction and complexity associated with protecting cloud workloads, containers and serverless environments, and transform the lengthy risk and audit processes into automated and continuous ones.

· Shift left securely: Automate the secure development of cloud-native applications, delivering full-stack protection and compliance for containers, Kubernetes and hosts across the container lifecycle.


The EY NextGen SOC service offering utilizes CrowdStrike Falcon LogScale, a modern log management solution, with EY’s SOC transformation practice to help clients transform and optimize their cyber risk management operations. This enables DevOps, SecOps and IT Ops teams to:

· Decrease mean time to detection (MTTD): Evaluate all security use cases with EY’s SOC Transformation services and optimize them with Falcon LogScale, which provides real-time streaming, searching and alerting.

· Reduce complexity and increase visibility: Spend less time managing and maintaining disparate environments and more time triaging incidents with Falcon LogScale, which centralizes all logs in a single dashboard and reduces the time spent filtering data.EY can guide clients in maximizing their most important resource – people.

· Lower total cost of ownership (TCO): Remove the limitations present in traditional logging solutions by leveraging Falcon LogScale’s index-free architecture, which provides seamless data ingestion, reduced infrastructure costs and lower operational costs. EY can help clients to reduce their TCO and drive relevant business insights by assisting in their identification and prioritization of their capital and operational investments.
