Crowdsec product overview

What is Crowdsec?

The CrowdSec project aims at providing a crowdsourced based approach to common infrastructure defense problems. It does so by distributing a free & open-source software allowing to protect yourself and share information about malevolent actors within its user network.

Key benefits of using Crowdsec

- Collaborative security: Our strength comes from our cybersecurity community which is burning hackers’ anonymity. By sharing the IP addresses that aggressed you, you help us curate and redistribute a qualified IP blacklist to protect everyone.
- Stateless & Decoupled: By decoupling detection (agent) and remediation (bouncer), CrowdSec doesn’t interrupt your data streams nor creates any single point of failure. It can fit any serverless, cloud-based, VM or bare-metal context in one (agent) to one (bouncer), one to many, many to one, and many to many typologies.
- High performance: Written in Golang, CrowdSec is 60x faster than its predecessor (Fail2ban) and can parse massive amounts of logs in no time. Agents can read log files, SIEM events, through a network socket and can be used in high throughput networks. For CPU & RAM-constrained assets, bouncers can just make very light API calls.
- Observability: Dashboards are great steering tools. CrowdSec is instrumented with Metabase & Prometheus to help you make smarter investments of both time & money and better defend yourself. Compliance reporting like PCI-DSS, ISO, GDPR are also on our roadmap.
- Multilayer & IPV6 ready: No matter if your servers or attackers are using IPV4 or IPV6 addresses, CrowdSec will do the job. This next-gen HIDS has been designed to not only deal with IPs but also with user sessions and more business-oriented layers.
- Ease of use: CrowdSec is designed and developed by former pentesters, SecOps & DevOps to be a fire & forget, easy to deploy, automate, configure and maintain software. This is what CrowdSec is about: bringing security to the largest number.
- GDPR Compliant: Sharing is caring but privacy matters even more. We collect the very strict minimum in order to be GDPR compliant. Hence, we never export your logs and the only data sent for curation are a timestamp, the aggressive IP, and the scenario used in the attack.
