CrowdStrike Falcon® Detects 100% of Attacks in New SE Labs EDR Test, Winning Highest Rating of All Vendors

The world’s most tested next-gen endpoint protection platform receives AAA award from the prestigious SE Labs

Sunnyvale, CA December 14, 2021 CrowdStrike Inc., (Nasdaq: CRWD), a leader in cloud-delivered protection of endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data, today announced that CrowdStrike Falcon® received a new AAA award from independent testing organization SE Labs, achieving a 100% Attacks Detected Rating in the latest Advanced Security Test, part of the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) testing category. This third-party recognition validates the extensive and comprehensive capabilities of the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform in detecting relevant threat activity throughout sophisticated adversary attack chains.

SE Labs tested the Falcon platform against a range of hacking attacks designed to compromise systems and penetrate target networks in the same way that criminals and other attackers breach systems and networks. The Falcon platform achieved a 100% Legitimate Accuracy Rating in correctly identifying legitimate applications, files and other objects such as URLs, and a 99% Total Accuracy Rating in detecting and protecting systems from sophisticated targeted attacks. This test was also the first to use the new Falcon Identity Threat Protection module, which immediately identified and blocked all attempts at using stolen credentials across all threat chains, stopping reconnaissance, lateral movement and persistence and speaking directly to the power of the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform’s Zero Trust solution. 

SE Labs prides itself on ‘testing like hackers’ to create real world scenarios, with reporting based on the MITRE ATT&CK framework making it easier for organizations to identify which solutions are right for them. Earlier this year, CrowdStrike again earned the 2021 Winner of the Best Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) in SE Lab’s Annual Report, as well as the highest AAA rating in the SE Labs Enterprise Endpoint Protection, Q3 2021 report, making it the 13th time that CrowdStrike has earned the AAA rating dating back to March 2018.

“CrowdStrike is committed to its mission to stop breaches. We believe that participating in rigorous, independent tests such as those by SE Labs allows us to offer transparency into our industry-leading automated detection and prevention capabilities, as well as innovate more powerful features to deliver robust protection against sophisticated attacks,” said Mike Sentonas, chief technology officer at CrowdStrike. “We are extremely proud of this latest recognition received from SE Labs and of the continued third party validation of the comprehensive protection offered by the CrowdsStrike Falcon platform.” 

“CrowdStrike Falcon® continued its tradition of excellent performance in this Advanced Security Test, demonstrating complete insights into relevant elements of an attack, detecting and providing visibility across multiple attack stages,” said Simon Edwards, chief executive officer at SE Labs. “Additionally, the Falcon platform had zero false positives, equally important in the dynamic attack environment we are experiencing that has security teams stretched to capacity. With a 100% Legitimate Accuracy Rating and 100% Attacks Detected Rating, CrowdStrike Falcon® achieves top-notch results for detecting sophisticated attacks while minimizing alert fatigue.”
