4Data partners with CrowdStrike and Ignition to bring AI-powered cybersecurity to our UK customers

With the speed and ferocity of cyberattacks continuing to accelerate, the rise of generative AI has the potential to lower the barrier of entry for low-skilled adversaries, making it easier to launch more sophisticated attacks. As organisations increasingly move business to the cloud, threat actors are advancing their capabilities to exploit this and abuse cloud-unique features. Identity-based attacks continue to take centre stage as threat actors use social engineering to bypass multi-factor authentication.

We are entering an era of a cyber arms race where AI will amplify the impact for both the security professional and the adversary. Organisations cannot afford to fall behind, and legacy technologies are no match for the speed and sophistication of today’s threat actors.

As part of Ignition’s market-leading partner network, 4Data is a highly skilled and experienced strategic partner and is well positioned to offer CrowdStrike’s AI-native Falcon® platform to UK businesses.

Ian Tinney, CEO of 4Data Solutions, comments: “Our mission is to help our customers get value from data while keeping it secure and compliant. As such, the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform is a powerful addition to our portfolio. It covers the complete defence-in-depth spectrum, from endpoint security to identity management, SIEM and cloud security – all of which align with our skill set and value proposition. There is no better brand to add to the mix that will enable us to address our customers’ biggest challenges around consolidating costs and simplifying security solutions without compromising on protection.

“More than that, all aspects of the platform are properly integrated, providing a truly unified platform using just one agent. This is critical because, in any large organisation, systems typically have between 7 and 15 agents installed, which is a major challenge when it comes to ensuring all agents are patched and running the latest versions.

“We are delighted to have been approached by Ignition Technology and CrowdStrike specifically for our relevant experience and expertise in cybersecurity. CrowdStrike’s Falcon® platform is the industry’s best security platform, delivering the outcome of stopping breaches. That, together with Ignition’s specialist SaaS cybersecurity focus, go-to-market strategy, channel development capabilities and sales expertise, is going to help us enormously. Not to mention the fact that they are also a great bunch of people to work with.

“In line with CrowdStrike’s mission, we are committed to stopping breaches and working with cutting-edge technology to do so. Adding Falcon®, CrowdStrike’s leading security platform, is essential in meeting customer demand and overcoming their complex challenges.”

4Data partners with Centripetal to take its CLEANInternet® product to market

4Data Solutions has partnered with Centripetal to take its CLEANInternet® product to market, initially in the UK.

The cybersecurity landscape is crowded with similar but different technologies, making it difficult for businesses to make the best choices. The escalating pace and complexity of AI-driven threats demand a shift in industry focus towards proactive defence measures. With the rapid decrease in the time it takes for threats to infiltrate systems, the efficacy of Detect and Respond technologies is being called into question.

Ransomware perpetrators are exploiting this accelerated tempo, swiftly encrypting and exfiltrating data before detection. To counteract this trend, the next generation of cybersecurity solutions must harness threat intelligence, leveraging the collective knowledge of the industry to fortify network defences. One such solution which offers a genuinely new perspective is CLEANInternet® from Centripetal.

Operationalising the largest global collection of threat intelligence in real-time to protect businesses from every known cyber threat, CLEANInternet® provides the fastest packet filtering patented technology on the market to deliver robust security at scale.

This means that small to medium sized companies with limited budgets and tough decisions to make about where to spend their cybersecurity budget can now block all known threats at the perimeter and achieve unparalleled protection.

Additionally, for larger companies facing the arduous tasks of vulnerability patch management, threat intelligence analysis, alert fatigue and the continuous race against cyber threat actors, CLEANInternet® offers a substantial advantage.

By leveraging hundreds of millions of Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) to filter traffic at packet speed, CLEANInternet® significantly moves the needle on from next-generation firewalls. This approach not only supplements your cybersecurity measures; it also transforms them by ensuring that potential threats are identified and mitigated before they can penetrate your defences, allowing your downstream tools and staff to take a breath.

Prevention is always better than cure. CLEANInternet® not only represents an addition to your cybersecurity arsenal, but also a strategic investment in a more secure future.
