CrowdStrike, a global provider of security technologies and services focused on identifying advanced threats and targeted attacks, announced it is one of seven companies accredited by the National Security Agency (NSA) under its National Security Cyber Assistance Program (NSCAP).

The NSA developed the accreditation program in response to a need for trusted resources for victims of computer network breaches. Companies that qualified for the accreditation were assessed in 21 critical focus areas including intrusion detection, incident analysis and containment and remediation.

According to the NSCAP website, the objectives of the Program are as follows:

– Develop a list of “accredited” cyber service providers from which the NSS community can draw upon for timely cyber assistance;
– Promote public-private collaboration;
– Leverage industry expertise to protect national interests; and,
– Address this growing concern across government.

“CrowdStrike’s mission has always been to assist victim organizations to mitigate the threat and to remediate from targeted attacks,” said Shawn Henry, President, CrowdStrike Services. “We are proud to receive this accreditation from the NSA and to be a trusted partner and resource for victim companies.”
