How the Falcon Platform Simplifies Deployment and Enhances Security
February 5, 2018Peter Ingebrigtsen Tech Center
Traditional requirements for security are overly complicated and brittle. The large number of pieces that are required not only complicate the deployment but make getting the promised value of the solution challenging at best. CrowdStrike has developed a powerful platform that takes the hassle out of deployment. This means that not only can you be up and running in a day but you can also be enjoying the full value of the solution. This video highlights the strengths and benefits of the Falcon Platform.
The CrowdStrike solution is cloud native with a single user interface that delivers all of the functionality including management, configuration and policy.
The single, lightweight agent can be downloaded and installed for Windows, Mac and Linux to deliver complete protection without impacting resources or productivity. The install is fast and easy. For larger deployments, most companies prefer to use their existing software distribution process. The CrowdStrike agent can be deployed with all common deployment tools including SCCM, intune and JAMF. You can also build the agent into gold images or templates for cloud systems to ensure new hosts are protected from the beginning.
The CrowdStrike solution does not require any complex tuning, managed services or even signature updates to be effective. Instead, it delivers immediate value as systems are protected as soon as the agent is installed.
