WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 6 (UPI) -- General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions is providing enhanced protection capability for customers through a partnership with CrowdStrike.

CrowdStrike is a California-headquartered provider of security technologies and services that specializes in identifying advanced cyber-attack threats.

Through the partnership, General Dynamics will supplement its own proprietary threat intelligence with CrowdStrike's capabilities to improve the prevention, detection, attribution and remediation of cyber-attacks in real time.

GenDyn's customers will receive detailed information automatically from the CrowdStrike Intelligence Exchange and will also be able to request in-depth information regarding specific threat actors, including behavior patterns, type of information targeted and affiliations with other attacks.

"In the war against malicious actors, threat intelligence is a key weapon in a strong defense," said Peter George, president of General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions. "Our participation in the Intelligence Exchange broadens the scope of intelligence we provide our customers and with the integration through Fidelis XPS, we enable our customers to apply that intelligence in real-time to operationalize the detection and remediation of threats."
