CrowdStrike and Netskope Integration Solution Guide
Netskope and CrowdStrike Solution Guide
This Solution Guide covers the comprehensive integration between Netskope and CrowdStrike. Topics include the various integration points where Netskope and CrowdStrike exchange the necessary data to execute the required actions for security practitioners.
CrowdStrike Plugin for Threat Exchange
The CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection Platform binds seamlessly with Netskope’s cloud-native threat protection engine and shares detected IOCs to bolster Netskope’s already-robust malware detection. Together CrowdStrike and Netskope’s enhanced capability provides joint customers with increased real-time, actionable threat forensics and enhanced malware protection on both endpoint and in the cloud. Netskope can enrich CrowdStrike by sharing data on new threats discovered within cloud services and from websites visited by endpoints. In return, CrowdStrike can leverage this information to provide Netskope with details of endpoints which may already be compromised by the threat.
Netskope plays a vital role in enriching CrowdStrike’s knowledge base by sharing data on new threats discovered within cloud services and from websites visited by endpoints. In return, CrowdStrike leverages this valuable information to provide Netskope with details of compromised endpoints that may have been affected by the identified threats. The synergy between these two platforms creates a formidable defense against cybersecurity threats, benefiting mutual customers with a comprehensive and proactive security approach.
CrowdStrike XDR Customers
CrowdStrike XDR is designed to provide organizations with enhanced threat detection, investigation, and response capabilities by integrating and correlating data from various security sources across endpoints, networks, and cloud environments.
The CrowdStrike XDR and Netskope integration provides a single view of threats across both endpoint and cloud, allowing organizations to see how threats are moving from one environment to the other. This information can be used to identify and respond to threats more quickly and effectively. The integration also automates the sharing of threat information between CrowdStrike and Netskope, so that both solutions can be used to detect and respond to threats. This can help organizations to contain and remediate threats more quickly, reducing the risk of damage.
Overall, the CrowdStrike XDR and Netskope integration can help organizations to improve their security posture by providing a more holistic view of threats and by automating the sharing of threat information. This can help organizations to detect and respond to threats more quickly and effectively, reducing the risk of damage.
Netskope and CrowdStrike use SCIM (Security Assertion Markup Language) for integration to automate the provisioning and deprovisioning of users and groups between the two platforms.
This integration allows Netskope and CrowdStrike to keep their user and group data synchronized, which can help to improve security and compliance. For example, if a user is added to the CrowdStrike tenant, the Netskope tenant will automatically be updated with the new user information. This ensures that the Netskope tenant is always aware of the latest users and groups, which can help to prevent unauthorized access to data. This also comes into play when a user/host is deemed risky by one of the systems. That user can automatically be moved into a restricted access group.
Here are some of the benefits of the integration:
- Improved visibility into threats
- Automated threat sharing
- Reduced complexity
- Improved compliance
Below link contains the best practices that ensure smooth interoperability between CrowdStrike and Netskope Client.
CrowdStrike Plugin for User Risk Exchange
The CrowdStrike integration with the User Risk Exchange module of the Netskope Cloud Exchange platform allows the integration to collect uids and their scores from CrowdStrike’s platform to Netskope. The fetched record types are hosts.
This joint effort ensures that both platforms have a more comprehensive understanding of potential risks associated with user hosts and can take appropriate actions to protect against threats.
CrowdStrike Falcon Identity Protection Plugin for User Risk Exchange
The CrowdStrike Identity Protect plugin with the already configured User Risk Exchange module of the Netskope Cloud Exchange platform collects user emails and their scores from CrowdStrike’s Identity Protection platform to Netskope.
CrowdStrike LogScale Plugin for Log Shipper
The CrowdStrike LogScale plugin allows you to send logs from Netskope to CrowdStrike LogScale. This can be useful for centralizing your log management and for gaining insights into your security posture.
