The Combination of Generative AI and CrowdStrike Data
Generative AI possesses the potential to level the playing field in cybersecurity, but its effectiveness hinges on the quality, context, and comprehensiveness of the foundational data. Charlotte AI leverages the most precise and detailed security data available worldwide, incorporating trillions of security events captured within the CrowdStrike Threat Graph. Additionally, it integrates asset telemetry spanning users, devices, identities, cloud workloads, and CrowdStrike’s exceptional threat intelligence, solidifying its position as an industry leader.
The Crucial and Exclusive CrowdStrike Data Set for Charlotte AI
The most vital and distinct dataset in CrowdStrike’s possession is its human-validated content. Charlotte AI will gain an exceptional advantage by benefiting from an ongoing feedback loop sourced from CrowdStrike Falcon OverWatch managed threat hunting, CrowdStrike Falcon Complete managed detection and response, CrowdStrike Services, and CrowdStrike Intelligence. This vast collection of human intelligence, specifically utilized to thwart real-world breaches, is a singular offering found solely within CrowdStrike’s repertoire. Right from the beginning, CrowdStrike has been the only entity to amalgamate this influential combination of security telemetry, threat intelligence, and human-validated content into the most powerful data fabric in the realm of cybersecurity.
“Since our inception, CrowdStrike has spearheaded the application of artificial intelligence in cybersecurity, employing it to identify adversary behavior and counter sophisticated attacks in order to prevent breaches. With the introduction of Charlotte AI, we are introducing the next innovation that will enhance the capabilities of users at all proficiency levels in stopping breaches while simultaneously reducing the complexities of security operations,” stated Mike Sentonas, President of CrowdStrike. “Our approach has consistently been founded on the belief that the convergence of AI and human intelligence will revolutionize cybersecurity. We consider our continuous feedback loop on human-validated content to be pivotal, and as a result, no other vendor will be able to match the security and business outcomes achieved by CrowdStrike’s generative AI approach.”
