CrowdStrike Adversary-Focused Approach to Security Advances Threat-Informed Defense

Behind every attack is a human adversary with motivation and intent. Understanding the adversary, their tradecraft and techniques, and how they are most likely to target an organization, is critical to a threat-informed defense. CrowdStrike is a pioneer in threat actor profiling and attribution and uses this industry-leading threat intelligence to enrich the trillions of security events captured in the CrowdStrike Security Cloud.

The market-leading CrowdStrike Falcon® platform applies advanced machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI) and deep analytics to this enriched telemetry to automatically prevent known attack methods and intrusions, while identifying new and unknown malicious activity and delivering proactive measures to stop the attack before it executes.
