CrowdStrike Falcon

You can integrate CrowdStrike Falcon with Sophos Central so that the service sends data to Sophos for analysis.

The key steps are as follows:

  • Get details of your CrowdStrike Falcon service.
  • Add a new API client to CrowdStrike Falcon.
  • Configure an integration in Sophos Central.

Get details of CrowdStrike Falcon service

You'll need the following details:

  • The base URL for CrowdStrike Falcon.
  • Your CrowdStrike Falcon API client and key.
  • A Client ID and Client Secret that you generate in the CrowdStrike Falcon console.

Generate an application secret

To generate an application secret do as follows:

  1. Sign in to the CrowdStrike Falcon management console.
  2. Click Support and resources > API Clients and keys > Add new API client.
  3. In Add new API client enter a CLIENT NAME and DESCRIPTION.
  4. Select the Read API scope for Detections.
