Alliance extends the power of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to robotic process automation, providing unparalleled capabilities to enhance protection and speed of response
NEW YORK, NY & SUNNYVALE, Calif., October 5, 2021 – UiPath (NYSE: PATH), a leading enterprise automation software company, and CrowdStrike Inc. (NASDAQ: CRWD), a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint and workload protection, today announced that the companies have partnered to deliver a new level of security protection and visibility with the UiPath Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform and the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform.
UiPath and CrowdStrike, leaders in their respective fields, are the first RPA and Endpoint Security vendors to come together to extend endpoint security to RPA, enabling full visibility to enhance protection and speed of response. The partnership offers joint customers unprecedented capabilities to correlate events to originating RPA processes to enable and accelerate threat hunting, investigation and remediation with CrowdStrike for their UiPath environment.
RPA makes it easy to build, deploy and manage software “robots” that emulate human actions interacting with digital systems and software, bringing scale, speed and consistency for improving business productivity and accelerating digital transformation. Automation needs access to systems and the right privileges to be able to execute and perform tasks with speed and consistency, without the need for manual intervention. While the UiPath platform has been architected with security at the center and its security is attested to via multiple recognized standards, the integration with CrowdStrike helps build a trusted automation environment for allowing RPAs to access critical systems and data with escalated privileges, improving business resiliency.
Together, CrowdStrike and UiPath automatically detect threat activity, whether initiated by humans or robots, to grant the security team real-time visibility across the environment and enable proactive responses. The ability to quickly and easily distinguish between an RPA-initiated process and a human-initiated process will provide security teams with real-time visibility across the environment for proactive threat hunting, incident investigation and remediation.
The partnership provides joint customers:
Amol Kulkarni, CrowdStrike chief product officer, said:
CrowdStrike and UiPath together bring unparalleled capabilities to the market to mitigate potential risk and increase the visibility of the security organization into robot-led activities. As automation becomes a core part of the enterprise technology stack and protecting against threats becomes more complex, strengthening our joint customers’ security posture will positively impact their business outcomes.
Ted Kummert, executive vice president of products and engineering at UiPath, added:
RPA is extending further across the enterprise to automate more processes, making it a fundamental operational asset that companies must protect. The challenge of keeping companies, customers and employees safe increases every day. By partnering with CrowdStrike’s leading cloud-based security technology, our customers gain the unique advantage of a highly secure and easy-to-implement end-to-end automation platform.
