A “Stellar” MDR Offering for the European Market

“CrowdStrike understands the threat landscape and has deep technical capabilities,” Forrester writes in the report. “CrowdStrike’s stellar MDR offering, backed by advanced extended detection and response (XDR) capabilities and a commitment to cybersecurity research, puts it ahead of its European peers.”

CrowdStrike is consistently recognized as an industry leader in analyst reports and awarded for the Falcon platform’s powerful capabilities — many of these industry reports provide a global perspective of the cybersecurity market. We believe this Europe-specific research both validates CrowdStrike’s capabilities and adds an important local dimension. CrowdStrike Falcon Complete is built and run with European data privacy laws in mind and provides EU hosting locations to help with local regulatory mandates and standards. 

With the combination of CrowdStrike’s best-in-class, AI-native Falcon platform and the layers of deep expertise built into our Falcon Complete MDR subscription offering, our European customers have full confidence in CrowdStrike’s ability to detect and respond to modern threats all day, every day.

“Organizations looking for a vendor with advanced threat hunting and response capabilities should consider CrowdStrike,” Forrester writes in its report. 

Why CrowdStrike Falcon Complete Is a Leader in MDR

In addition to our powerful technical capabilities, Forrester highlights the layers of human expertise that set CrowdStrike apart from our European competitors.

“At the core of CrowdStrike’s MDR service is a deep expertise in threat intelligence and incident response,” Forrester writes in its report. “Its roots in these areas shine through in its focus on robust telemetry and rapid analysis.”

Falcon Complete offers customers CrowdStrike’s unparalleled ability to detect and respond to the most subtle and complex attacks. As the threat landscape evolves and adversaries increasingly rely on identity-based attacks, hands-on-keyboard techniques and other methods to breach their targets, organizations must be able to quickly detect, disrupt and defeat them. Falcon Complete carries out precise detection and surgical remediation on behalf of customers to ensure threats are quickly eradicated, enabling customers to avoid downtime, expensive reimaging and additional work for their teams.

With Falcon Complete, organizations are able to maximize protection, drive down in-house costs and streamline efficiency through vendor and tools consolidation delivered through a frictionless subscription leveraging a powerful integrated platform. Falcon Complete augments in-house teams of all skill levels, breaking down data and organizational silos to stop adversaries with a seamless union between the technology, human expertise and process needed to deliver the outcome of stopping breaches. 

The Forrester Wave™: Managed Detection And Response Services In Europe, Q4 2023 is the latest in a string of recognitions for Falcon Complete. CrowdStrike achieved 99% detection coverage in the first-ever MITRE ATT&CK® Evaluations for Security Service Providers — outperforming every other vendor. CrowdStrike also ranked #1 for the second consecutive year in Gartner Managed Detection and Response for Managed Security Services.

As the industry leader in MDR, we’ve continued to expand our subscription offerings across all key attack surfaces, including endpoint, identity and cloud. Earlier this year, we announced CrowdStrike Falcon® Complete XDR, a new managed extended detection and response (MXDR) service that builds on the Falcon Complete MDR subscription to give customers 24/7 expert-driven management, threat hunting, monitoring and end-to-end remediation across multiple vendors and attack surfaces.
