This marks the third consecutive time CrowdStrike has been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms, which we believe builds on the significant recognition CrowdStrike has received as a market, technology and innovation leader. CrowdStrike has recently been recognized as:

Endpoint security remains the central aspect of an organization’s security architecture and the foundation of extended detection and response (XDR). As the pioneer of EDR, we’re committed to driving the industry forward by delivering the innovations customers require to stop breaches, protect their critical assets, solve their toughest security challenges and make their organizations more resilient to cyberattacks.

I want to thank our 21,000+ customers for their continued trust and support along this journey. CrowdStrike is committed to ensuring our customers have the strongest and most comprehensive cybersecurity posture in the industry.

CrowdStrike: Positioned Furthest to the Right for Completeness of Vision

CrowdStrike pioneered the EDR market, but we’ve never rested on our success. Our focus is to deliver the very best technology and groundbreaking innovations that drive the industry forward and deliver the outcomes that customers prioritize most: stopping breaches, consolidating point products to reduce complexity, and ensuring we have the easiest platform to deploy and manage. 

Among 18 vendors evaluated, we are positioned furthest to the right on the Completeness of Vision axis in this Magic Quadrant, which evaluates vendors based on criteria including market understanding, market strategy, product strategy, innovation, business model and geographic strategy. We believe this placement demonstrates our diligence in helping customers across geographies and industries stay ahead of adversaries as enterprise work environments — and the threat landscape — continue to rapidly evolve. 

We are extremely proud to be recognized as a three-time Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms and placed furthest right in Completeness of Vision. We believe this recognition highlights the power of the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform in helping organizations thrive while defending against a broad range of threats. The Falcon platform protects customers without compromising on speed or performance, with a cloud-scale architecture that protects workloads and workforces anywhere, at any time.

Our priority from day one has been stopping breaches, and we believe in order to do this, you need the best technology, the best threat intelligence and the best people. We continue to develop our unified platform to achieve this vision. Only CrowdStrike delivers a generational platform approach that unifies world-class protection across endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and much more.

Industry-Leading EDR Is the Essential Foundation for XDR 

CrowdStrike is relentlessly focused on building technologies to help organizations where they need it most: detecting and responding to security threats targeting a rapidly growing and changing attack surface. This is where XDR comes into play. 

As we have long stated, XDR is the evolution of EDR — and it must be built on the strongest EDR foundation possible. The endpoint remains the most valuable source of security data, delivering unique visibility and telemetry that only a dynamic, lightweight agent can generate. We believe our recognition in the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant demonstrates that our 21,000+ customers have the best XDR foundation in the industry with our industry-leading EDR at the core.

Organizations can leverage the Falcon platform for a variety of XDR use cases that extend the aperture of detection and response beyond the endpoint to identify and remediate even the most sophisticated attacks.

A Universally Recognized Vendor

In our view, the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms marks the latest recognition of us being a Leader — a series that also includes the recently announced MITRE ATT&CK® Evaluations for Security Service Providers, where CrowdStrike achieved the highest detection coverage out of 16 vendors evaluated. The Falcon platform’s combination of industry-leading technology and human expertise enabled us to detect 75 of 76 adversary techniques. We believe these results clearly demonstrate how our market-leading Falcon platform and elite services stand alone in helping customers stop modern sophisticated attacks. 

I couldn’t be more excited to continue building out our vision for the Falcon platform and helping our customers defend against the threats of today and tomorrow.
