Configure Device Profiles - CrowdStrike

   icons.png  Watch the visual story about Configuring Device Profiles - CrowdStrike

Skyhigh SSE platform enables customers to create Zero trust device policies using a combination of native Zero Trust Assessments capabilities such as OS version, presence of registry key, Antivirus(On/Off) and more to assess device posture. CrowdStrike performs zero trust assessment and provides various scores like OS score, sensor score, and overall score of the client. By using a combination of these scores, we can enforce powerful Zero Trust Assessment of devices before allowing access to private applications via Skyhigh Private Access.

Before you Begin 

  • Download the latest SCP build.

Note:  The CrowdStrike Integration reads Zero Trust Assessment scores pushed locally to each endpoint by CrowdStrike.CrowdStrike Falcon requires a Feature Flag to be enabled for a Customer ID (CID) to allow ZTA data files to be pushed to endpoints. The Feature Flag to distribute ZTA files to endpoints – zta_distribute_payload – can only be enabled by opening a case with CrowdStrike Support with the request for the Feature Flag zta_distribute_payload be enabled.



  • Ensure that you have installed CrowdStrike on your system before using it as integration option. 

  • Go to Setting > Infrastructure > Web Gateway Setup > Configure SCP > Manage SCP > Global Configuration to enable CrowdStrike in Device Risk Assessment settings to use the CrowdStrike integration option.
