Crowdstrike is deprecating the current authentication method that is being used by the eyeExtend for Crowdstrike product. Forescout has released a product update that enables switching to an alternative authentication method to ensure operation continuity.
Currently, the eyeExtend for Crowdstrike module is using basic authentication for communicating with Crowdstrike Query and Streaming APIs. Crowdstrike is deprecating this method (end of 2019) and migrating users to a stronger authentication method, OAuth2. Once the basic authentication is deprecated by Crowdstrike, Forescout deployments whose authentication method was not updated, will fail to communicate with Crowdstrike and the product will not operate.
Crowdstrike Forescout has released a product update that includes support for OAuth2 authentication.
