Preempt’s solution offers zero trust and conditional acces for continuously detecting and preempting threats based on identity, behavior and risk. Preempt’s patented technology empowers enterprises to optimize identity hygiene and stop attackers and insider threats in real-time before they can impact business.

According to a statement by CrowdStrike, the addition of Preempt’s technology to the CrowdStrike Falcon platform will help customers achieve end-to-end visibility and enforcement on identity data.

“Hybrid work environments will become the norm for many organizations which means that Zero Trust security with an identity-centric approach and detecting threats in real-time are critical for business continuity,” said George Kurtz, CrowdStrike’s co-founder and CEO.

Calcalist Digital was founded in 2010 aiming to provide a platform for the Israeli financial industry. Over the course of the last decade, Calcalist penetrated every sector in the economy and is now considered a leading barometer of the market.
