UiPath collaborates with CrowdStrike to enhance RPA security
UiPath, an enterprise automation software company, and CrowdStrike Inc., a provider of cloud-delivered endpoint and workload protection, are partnering to deliver a new level of security protection and visibility.
The UiPath Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform and the CrowdStrike Falcon platform will offer 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.
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, according to the vendors.
“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,” said Amol Kulkarni, CrowdStrike chief product officer. “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.
