London, UK – May 4, 2017 – CrowdStrike® Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, today announced the expansion of its operations in EMEA with the opening of a new office in Milan, Italy and the appointment of Lina Novetti as regional director, Southern Europe.

Since the 2016 launch of its EMEA operations in Reading, UK, CrowdStrike has experienced rapid, triple-digit growth adding new customers across the region.
