CrowdStrike Falcon

Enterprise

runZero integrates with CrowdStrike by importing data through the CrowdStrike Falcon API. This integration allows you to sync and enrich your asset inventory. Adding your CrowdStrike data to runZero makes it easier to find things like endpoints that are missing an EDR agent.

  • For CrowdStrike Falcon hosts which can be matched to an existing runZero asset, asset level attributes such as operating system, hardware platform, hostname, and MAC address will be updated, and CrowdStrike-specific attributes will be added.

  • For hosts which cannot be matched with an existing runZero asset, a new asset will be created in the site specified when the integration task is set up.

runZero is able to merge existing assets with Falcon data when the MAC address or hostname overlaps. Falcon devices can also be manually merged into runZero assets using the Merge button on the Asset Inventory screen.

Please note that any IP address reported by Falcon will be treated as a secondary address, not a primary address, since these IPs can be stale and may not be associated with a specific network or site.

Getting started

To set up the CrowdStrike integration, you’ll need to:

  1. Configure CrowdStrike to allow API access through runZero.
  2. Add the CrowdStrike credentials, which will include the client ID and client secret, and CrowdStrike base API URL in runZero.
  3. Activate the CrowdStrike connection to sync your data with runZero.

Requirements

Before you can set up the CrowdStrike integration:

  • Verify that you have runZero Enterprise.
  • Make sure you have access to the CrowdStrike admin portal.

Step 1: Configure CrowdStrike to allow API access to runZero

  1. Log in to CrowdStrike.
  2. Go to Support > API Clients and Keys. When the API Key page appears, choose to add a new API client.
  3. Provide the following details for the API client:
    • Client name - API client name, such as runZero.
    • API scope - Read permissions for Hosts and Host Groups.
  4. When you are done, add the client. An API client created window appears and shows you the client ID and client secret. You’ll need them to configure the integration in runZero.
  5. Copy the client ID and client secret now. You may not be able to get them later.

Step 2: Add the CrowdStrike credentials to runZero

  1. Go to the Credentials page in runZero. Provide a name for the credentials, like CrowdStrike Falcon.
  2. Choose CrowdStrike Falcon API key from the list of credential types.
  3. Provide the following information:
    • CrowdStrike client ID and CrowdStrike client secret - To generate your client ID and client secret, go to Support > API Clients and Keys > OAuth2 API clients > Add new API Client in your CrowdStrike portal.
    • CrowdStrike API URL - Your organization-specific base URL, which will depend on your account type. You can find this in the CrowdStrike API Swagger documentation.
      • For a US-1 account use api.crowdstrike.com
      • For a US-2 account use api.us-2.crowdstrike.com
      • For a US-GOV-1 account use api.laggar.gcw.crowdstrike.com
      • For a EU-1 account use api.eu-1.crowdstrike.com
  4. If you want other organizations to be able to use these credentials, select the Make this a global credential option. Otherwise, you can configure access on a per organization basis.
  5. Save the credentials. You’re now ready to set up and activate the connection to bring in data from CrowdStrike.

Step 3: Set up and activate the CrowdStrike connection to sync data

After you add your CrowdStrike credentials, you’ll need to set up a connection to sync your data from CrowdStrike. A connection requires you to set a schedule and choose a site. The schedule determines when the sync occurs, and the site determines where any new CrowdStrike-only assets are created.

  1. Activate a connection to CrowdStrike. You can access all available third-party connections from your inventory or tasks page.
  2. Choose the credentials you added earlier. If you don’t see the credentials listed, make sure the credentials have access to the organization you are currently in.
  3. Enter a name for the task, like CrowdStrike sync.
  4. Schedule the sync. A sync can be set to run on a recurring schedule or run once. The schedule will start on the date and time you have set.
  5. Under Task configuration, choose the site you want to add your assets to. All newly discovered assets will be stored in this site.
  6. Activate the connection when you are done. The sync will run on the defined schedule. You can always check the Scheduled tasks to see when the next sync will occur.

Step 4: View CrowdStrike assets

After a successful sync, you can go to your inventory to view your CrowdStrike assets. These assets will have a CrowdStrike icon listed in the Source column.

To filter by CrowdStrike assets, consider running the following queries:

Click into each asset to see its individual attributes. runZero will show you the attributes returned by the CrowdStrike API, with the exception of policies.
