CrowdStrike Makes Cybersecurity Solution Available on Amazon Business

Crowdstrike

CrowdStrike made its artificial intelligence-powered cybersecurity offering, Falcon Go, officially available on Amazon Business.

This marks the first CrowdStrike offering on Amazon’s B2B store, providing a dedicated distribution channel for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to access protection against modern cyberthreats, the cybersecurity firm said in a Wednesday (Nov. 22) press release.

“We see the Amazon Business store as a strategic channel for reaching millions of SMB buyers and a means to bring modern cyber protection against modern threats to the masses,” Lisa Campbell, vice president of small and medium business at CrowdStrike, said in the release.

With the increasing volume and sophistication of cyberattacks, Falcon Go aims to empower SMBs with the same level of protection used by large enterprises, according to the release.

While large enterprises have long embraced modern, cloud-based and AI-powered defenses, SMBs have often been left behind, relying on legacy anti-virus tools, the release said. However, the threat landscape continues to evolve, necessitating advanced cybersecurity measures for businesses of all sizes.

Falcon Go leverages CrowdStrike’s AI-native Falcon platform, which has achieved a 100% ransomware prevention rate in SE Labs testing, per the release. By bringing this technology to SMBs, CrowdStrike aims to close the cybersecurity gap and provide effective protection against novel and sophisticated threats.

The solution provides detections, automated protection and remediation, threat hunting and prioritized observability of vulnerabilities, according to the release.

PYMNTS Intelligence found that external attacks such as cyberattacks emerged as the single most disruptive fraud risk during the digital shift.

Eighty-eight percent of SMBs are concerned about damaging attack vectors like ransomware, according to “How SMBs Can Fight the Fraud Threats of Remote Work,” a PYMNTS and American Express collaboration.

Data from blockchain firm Chainalysis showed that ransomware payments reached nearly $500 million through September, a 50% increase compared to the same period last year.

Ransomware attacks have been targeting both individuals and organizations across the globe, making them a significant concern for governments and businesses alike.
