So what

On Wednesday morning, CrowdStrike unveiled Falcon XDR, a service that extends the company's endpoint detection and response to work across its entire security stack in real time. "Falcon XDR provides security teams with the data and tools to respond, contain and remediate sophisticated attacks faster," CrowdStrike said in a press release. The company also announced CrowdXDR Alliance, a coalition made up of security and information technology organizations. Among the key partners are Alphabet's Google Cloud, Okta, ServiceNow, and more.

In addition, CrowdStrike announced Falcon FileVantage, which monitors crucial files and systems with modernized workflow policies. 

There were a handful of other product announcements from the company, available to view in their press release archive.

Now what

CrowdStrike's new products aim to help it increase its lead in the modern endpoint security market.

As the largest cloud-native endpoint security offering, the company has been growing incredibly fast. Its fiscal second-quarter revenue soared 70% year over year. The company's aggressive product expansion represents management's attempt to keep up its momentum and capture as much of this market opportunity as it can.
