As it was scheduled, “the world’s most immersive gathering of automation experts“, UiPath FORWARD IV was kicked off today. During the first day of the event, UiPath announced it is partnering with the cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike Holdings Inc. to bring advanced endpoint security features to its RPA platform. The partnership offers 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.
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 for proactive threat hunting, incident investigation, and remediation.
“RPA is extending further across the enterprise to automate more processes, making it a fundamental operational asset that companies must protect. The challenge of keeping companies, customers, and employees safe increases every day. By partnering with CrowdStrike’s leading cloud-based security technology, our customers gain the unique advantage of a highly secure and easy-to-implement end-to-end automation platform.”
Ted Kummert, Executive VP of Products and Engineering, UiPath
“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. 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.”
