CrowdStrike Expands Falcon to Include IoT


Cybersecurity vendor CrowdStrike introduced new extended detection and response (XDR) capabilities within its Falcon platform to secure “extended” internet of things (XIoT). CrowdStrike Falcon Insight for IoT delivers tailored threat prevention, rapid patch management, and interoperability across XIoT assets.

XIoT is a broader category of assets and encompasses the Internet of Things, Industrial IoT, Operations Technology, as well as medical devices.

The IT/OT convergence means security teams are now responsible for securing critical infrastructure systems. Gartner estimates 70% of organizations will have converged “security functions across both enterprise and operational environments” by 2025.
