CrowdStrike unveils ChromeOS support for XDR tool

Cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike announced that a version of its CrowdStrike Falcon Insight XDR for ChromeOS devices is rolling out, TechTarget reports. The launch comes amid changes in threat actor behavior that the company has observed recently, alongside new trends among enterprise workers. Raj Rajamani, chief product officer of data, identity, cloud, and endpoint security at CrowdStrike, said during RSA Conference 2023 that Chromebooks and other ChromeOS devices are seeing wider use in many companies, serving as a low-cost device capable of performing simple tasks such as sending emails. As enterprises have started adopting these, they have wanted the same level of protection and the same level of visibility and response capabilities they are getting for their Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android, Rajamani said. Meanwhile, the company continues to work on expanding its cloud and identity capabilities in response to findings in its recent report that threat actors are focusing more on credentials-based breaches over malware attacks and are increasingly conducting reconnaissance on targets cloud topologies, according to Rajamani.
