The CrowdStrike Falcon® platform was built as a transformative cloud-native solution to establish a new standard in security. CrowdStrike’s unique approach starts with its intelligent lightweight agent that enables frictionless deployment of the platform at scale. It enables customers to rapidly adopt technology across any workload running on multiple endpoints. The agent sends data to the cloud, while retaining local detection and prevention capabilities. The Falcon platform integrates 11 cloud modules that span multiple capabilities, including endpoint security, security operations and threat intelligence to deliver comprehensive breach protection against today’s sophisticated attacks. 

The innovative CrowdStrike Threat Graph® technology processes, correlates, and analyzes over two trillion endpoint-related events per week in real time and maintains an index of events to stay ahead of future threats. CrowdStrike Threat Graph continuously looks for malicious activity with graph analytics powered by cloud-scale AI, while feeding information to the Falcon platform. This creates a powerful network of crowdsourced intelligence that provides actionable insights to customers. The platform enables intelligent, dynamic automation at scale to detect threats and stop breaches. 

CrowdStrike offers a free trial of its antivirus replacement solution, CrowdStrike Falcon® Prevent™, enabling immediate deployments at any time, anywhere.
