CrowdStrike and Humio deliver the industry’s most advanced data platform for index-free XDR.

CrowdStrike has extended its leadership with a true multi-tenant, cloud-native platform by adding the best-in-class data ingestion that the industry has to offer.

CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint and cloud workload protection, announced it has agreed to acquire Humio, a leading provider of high-performance cloud log management and observability technology.

CrowdStrike’s innovative Threat GraphTM technology processes 5 trillion security-related events every week, making it the industry’s most comprehensive security solution for protecting endpoints and workloads. By ingesting and correlating data from any log, application, or feed, CrowdStrike is able to provide actionable insights and real-time security to its customers. This purchase allows CrowdStrike to further expand its eXtended Detection and Response (XDR) capabilities.

Existing security providers are unable to provide their customers with the concise, contextual insights required to realise the true promise of XDR. Customers are left with large, complex data sets that lack context and hide the important insights security teams require in the absence of key technological advances, such as CrowdStrike’s cloud-scale AI running on a purpose-built graph database and patented smart-filtering technology that reduces ingestion of unneeded, irrelevant data.

CrowdStrike will now be able to provide deep, contextual, index-free XDR at a speed and scale no other vendor can match. CrowdStrike’s decade-long leadership in EDR and XDR is built in combining endpoint events with network visibility, account and identity insights, and enormous telemetry from all workloads, on premise, in the cloud, or in a container.

By combining their respective strengths, Humio and CrowdStrike have created an enterprise-level solution that helps organisations collect, observe, analyse, and act upon all structured and unstructured data in their environment.
