How Falcon and the “Power of One” Eliminate System Tray Bloat [VIDEO]

A big concern for today’s IT executives is how to protect endpoints while avoiding “system tray bloat,” the condition that occurs when endpoints get loaded up with so many performance-robbing agents that end-user productivity plummets, application compatibility issues rise and frustration soars. Legacy antivirus is a big contributor to this bloat, yet many CISOs who would like to jettison their old antivirus due to its ineffectiveness are stymied because it’s still required for compliance purposes.

The CrowdStrike Falcon® platform is built on an architecture that addresses these challenges by focusing on the “power of one,” integrating multiple advanced endpoint protection features within a single lightweight agent — less than 20 MBs in size — to deliver unprecedented efficacy against a wide variety of threats. CrowdStrike Falcon uniquely unifies endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities with next-generation antivirus with machine learning/artificial intelligence and behavioral prevention, all backed by 24/7 managed threat hunting. Delivered directly to each endpoint via native cloud architecture, Falcon’s “power of one” design provides an antidote to system tray bloat while offering unrivaled endpoint protection that is approved to replace legacy antivirus and fully meets PCI, HIPAA and other compliance needs.
