CrowdStrike Exemplifies the RSA 2018 Theme: “Now Matters”

RSA Blog 2

Another year has rushed by and even though RSA moved to April, it hardly seems possible it will be here in less than two weeks time. It has been a challenging year for cybersecurity. Many of the cyberattack trends and developments CrowdStrike® experts observed in 2017 are published in the “CrowdStrike 2018 Global Threat Report.” This year, many of these same trends will continue and as the world becomes even more connected, the theme of the RSA conference seems particularly appropriate — “Now Matters.” As RSA explained in its blog, “When a threat can impact enterprises across the globe in minutes or hours, solutions for these cyberthreats can’t wait for tomorrow.”  

CrowdStrike is profoundly committed to this philosophy and it is why we continuously strive to find new and better ways to keep our customers safe. To demonstrate that commitment, we are unveiling several exciting new solutions at RSA 2018, built to ensure your organization stays ahead of today’s determined adversaries. This year we will also be telling you about our new, exclusive Free Trial of Falcon Prevent™, the industry’s most powerful next-gen antivirus solution. We hope you will visit our booth to learn about our solutions and participate in the activities we have planned — I promise you won’t be disappointed. You will also be able to attend some fantastic learning sessions led by world-renowned CrowdStrike leaders, as well as have an opportunity to network with your peers during a variety of fun and informative activities we have lined up.
