Help AG joins forces with CrowdStrike to advance endpoint protection and incident response

Help AG, the cybersecurity arm of Etisalat Digital, has announced its partnership with  CrowdStrike, a global cloud-delivered endpoint protection provider. As a member of the CrowdStrike Elevate Partner Program, Help AG will offer CrowdStrike Falcon platform for comprehensive, real-time endpoint protection to businesses in the Middle East, with an initial focus on organisations in the UAE.

“This partnership with CrowdStrike aligns with Help AG’s cloud-first strategy and offers our customers near-instant access to one of the industry’s highest-rated endpoint detection and response solutions with no upfront CapEx,” said Stephan Berner, chief executive officer at Help AG.

CrowdStrike provides a powerful, and an intelligent solution that is simple to deploy and that goes beyond just detecting malware to stopping breaches before they occur: Berner, Help AG

Commenting on the synergy between the two companies, he said, “CrowdStrike Falcon is unique in that it is a truly stand-alone solution that perfectly integrates with technologies from several of our other market-leading vendor partners. This enhances Help AG’s value-proposition and enables us to offer a comprehensive cybersecurity solution that delivers instant visibility and protection across the enterprise and prevents attacks on endpoints, whether they are on or off the network.”

CrowdStrike Falcon unifies next-generation antivirus (NGAV), endpoint detection and response (EDR), cyber threat intelligence, managed threat hunting capabilities and security hygiene via a single, lightweight agent that is cloud-managed and delivered. The benefits of this unified and lightweight approach include immediate time-to-value, better performance, reduced cost and complexity, and better protection that goes beyond detecting malware to stop breaches before they occur.

Avoiding a breach is more important than before ever as organizations look to avoid any further disruption to their business: Rawad Sarriedine, CrowdStrike

Rawad Sarriedine, CrowdStrike, senior managing director, Middle East, Turkey and Africa sales said: “We are proud to partner with an industry leader like Help AG to bring the best-of-breed CrowdStrike Falcon to enterprises in UAE, assisting in their digital transformation by providing a purpose-built cloud  security offering that is easily and remotely deployed and managed and that protects their workloads at scale, irrespective of where their employees are located.”

In addition to offering consultancy and implementation services for the full spectrum of CrowdStrike’s offerings, Help AG will utilise the Falcon platform within its own Cybersecurity Operations Centre (CSOC) for the further advancement of its Incident Response capabilities. Falcon Insight – the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) component of the platform – provides remote visibility across endpoints throughout an organisation’s IT environment, enabling instant access to the ‘who, what, when, where and how’ of an attack.
