Partner & Managing Director, Washington, D.C.
NEW YORK (May 20, 2021) - AlixPartners, the global consulting firm, announced today a new alliance with CrowdStrike, a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection and workload protection, which will combine the power of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform with AlixPartners’ cybersecurity solutions.
This alliance allows AlixPartners’ strengths in cyber investigations, digital forensics, program design, assessment, governance and security transformation to be complemented with CrowdStrike’s outstanding strengths in threat intelligence, comprehensive incident response and orchestration. Access to CrowdStrike Falcon will enhance AlixPartners’ ability to quickly and efficiently help clients ascertain the nature and breadth of cybersecurity incidents and complements the firm’s deep digital investigations capabilities.
“CrowdStrike’s best-in-class cybersecurity capabilities combined with AlixPartners’ extensive hands-on management experience and action-oriented approach is critical to helping our clients around the world solve their most urgent and complex security and risk issues proactively,” said Beth Musumeci, the global leader of AlixPartners’ Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Practice. “In today’s environment of heightened risk from cyberattacks, and growing litigation and regulatory oversight over data security and privacy, technical investigation capabilities are in high demand.”
The CrowdStrike Falcon platform leverages cloud-scale artificial intelligence and offers real-time protection and visibility across organizations to prevent attacks on endpoints and workloads on or off the network. Purpose-built in the cloud, the CrowdStrike Falcon platform correlates over 5 trillion endpoint-related events per week in real time from across the globe, fuelling one of the world’s most advanced data platforms for security. The alliance between CrowdStrike and AlixPartners demonstrates the firm’s continued investment in expanding its cybersecurity services. In August of last year, the firm acquired Freeh Group International Solutions, a leading global risk management firm.
