Our Story

OUR MISSION

“We don’t have a mission statement — we are on a mission to protect our customers from breaches”

— George Kurtz, CrowdStrike CEO and Co-Founder

CrowdStrike was founded in 2011 to fix a fundamental problem: The sophisticated attacks that were forcing the world’s leading businesses into the headlines could not be solved with existing malware-based defenses. Co-founders George Kurtz and Dmitri Alperovitch realized that a brand new approach was needed — one that combines the most advanced endpoint protection with expert intelligence to pinpoint the adversaries perpetrating the attacks, not just the malware.


CROWDSTRIKE’S MISSION IS SIMPLE: TO STOP BREACHES

The Story Behind the CrowdStrike Story

(a letter from our founders)

Prior to starting CrowdStrike, George and Dmitri spent a year traveling the globe visiting the world’s largest organizations, listening to their security challenges. As the Worldwide CTO, and the Vice President of Threat Research (respectively) at one of the largest security vendors on the planet, we were both painfully aware that existing solutions were falling short, unable to meet the latest challenges in information security.

The in-depth investigations we were conducting for customers who had been hacked — along with a glance at the headlines on any given day — confirmed what we already knew: Despite spending millions of dollars on the best security products and personnel available, major organizations were suffering devastating breaches, seemingly on a daily basis. And there was no “silver bullet” technology to offer that could keep our customers from becoming the next headline.

OUR PEOPLE & CULTURE


Our revolutionary approach and mission has allowed us to attract the best and brightest, not just from the technology and security sectors, but also from law enforcement, industry, and intelligence communities. What binds us all together is a shared passion for creating the next-generation technologies and services necessary for defeating today’s toughest adversaries.

CrowdStrike is the leader in next-generation endpoint protection, threat intelligence and response services. CrowdStrike’s core technology, the Falcon platform, stops breaches by preventing and responding to all types of attacks — both malware and malware-free.

CrowdStrike has revolutionized endpoint protection by combining three crucial elements: next-generation AV, endpoint detection and response (EDR), and a 24/7 managed hunting service — all powered by intelligence and uniquely delivered via the cloud in a single integrated solution. Falcon uses the patented CrowdStrike Threat Graph™ to analyze and correlate billions of events in real time, providing complete protection and five-second visibility across all endpoints.

Many of the world’s largest organizations already put their trust in CrowdStrike, including two of the 10 largest global companies by revenue, four of the 10 largest financial institutions, three of the top 10 health care providers, and two of the top 10 energy companies. CrowdStrike Falcon is currently deployed in more than 170 countries.
