CrowdStrike Wins Frost & Sullivan 2024 Cloud Leadership Award

Falcon Cloud Security gives customers the most complete CNAPP for full visibility and protection to stop cloud breaches

Frost & Sullivan named CrowdStrike the winner of its 2024 Customer Value Leadership Award in the global cloud security industry, reinforcing our dominance in cloud security at a time when the practice has never been more critical for organizations worldwide.

According to the CrowdStrike 2024 Global Threat Report, cloud intrusions grew 75% year-over-year in 2023, with adversaries becoming more focused and persistent in the cloud. They’ve gotten faster overall, with the fastest breakout time down to just over two minutes.

To defend against cloud threats, organizations need a cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) with comprehensive security capabilities integrated throughout the cloud application lifecycle, from code development to production deployment and runtime protection.

Today, we’re proud to announce another award to further separate us from the pack.

Frost & Sullivan: What Sets CrowdStrike Apart

Frost & Sullivan named CrowdStrike the winner of its Customer Value Leadership Award in the global cloud security industry. To determine the winner, Frost & Sullivan applied a rigorous analytical process to evaluate multiple nominees in the cloud security market in two main areas: business impact and customer impact. CrowdStrike was the clear winner.

“CrowdStrike’s unified cloud-native security platform’s integrated approach, along with its focus on breach prevention and proactive support, delivers seamless customer support and experience, setting it apart from competitors. By enhancing its security technology capabilities, gaining customer trust and maximizing the value of its solutions, CrowdStrike has become a popular cloud security choice among organizations, boosting the adoption of its solutions and revenue growth over the last few years to become a leader in the competitive cloud security industry.”

Core to this award is Falcon Cloud Security — the industry’s only unified agent-based and agentless CNAPP for code to cloud protection, integrating pre-runtime and runtime protection in a single platform to stop cloud breaches.

“CrowdStrike’s proprietary integrated CNAPP delivers both agentless and agent-based capabilities with strong behavioral indicators of attacks for cloud control plane and runtime protection capabilities as well as visibility into misconfigurations and compliance issues for cloud workloads in a single unified platform.”

Our leadership position is bolstered by CrowdStrike’s industry-leading professional services. With the addition of CrowdStrike Falcon® Complete, organizations can get 24/7 managed CDR services from CrowdStrike experts to detect and respond to incidents, and close the cybersecurity skills gap.

“Its platform provides a full cloud detection and response solution through its integrated CNAPP, AI and incidence response capabilities, end-to-end 24/7 managed detection and response, threat hunting and incident response services for the cloud.”

Many CNAPPs are thinly veiled CSPMs, built as cloud vulnerability management tools lacking capabilities to stop cloud breaches. CrowdStrike stops threats in real time with advanced runtime protection built on the same unified agent as CrowdStrike’s best-in-class EDR and Identity Protection. Leveraging world-class managed threat hunting and intelligence, CrowdStrike sets the standard for CDR as a native part of the most comprehensive cloud security platform, built to stop the breach.
