CrowdStrike Falcon® Available to Government Entities Nationwide Through California Software Licensing Program PLUS

CrowdStrike Falcon® is currently the only approved endpoint protection platform accessible through SLP PLUS

Sunnyvale, CA — January 24, 2019 — CrowdStrike® Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, today announced that it is now available for purchase through the California Software Licensing Program PLUS (SLP PLUS). The contract enables a more accessible purchasing process for state and local customers looking to reap the benefits of the AI-enabled, cloud-native CrowdStrike Falcon® to stop breaches effectively, reliably and in real-time.

The Software Licensing Program PLUS (SLP PLUS) is managed by the Department of General Services, Procurement Division and is a leveraged procurement vehicle that can be used by any government entity to obtain CrowdStrike.

CrowdStrike Falcon® is currently the only endpoint protection platform (EPP) to have an active SLP PLUS contract. Falcon unifies antivirus, endpoint detection and response, and managed threats in federally compliant systems. The Falcon platform combines global insights and cyber threat intelligence, machine learning, behavioral-based detections, and provides unrivaled real-time visibility to detect, respond, and prevent cyberattacks.

“Being the only approved EPP vendor to the California Software Licensing Program PLUS demonstrates Falcon’s ability to provide comprehensive visibility to effectively remediate and thwart the most dangerous cyber threats that public sector organizations are faced with today,” said James Yeager, CrowdStrike’s vice president, Public Sector and Healthcare. “CrowdStrike  remains committed to protecting government networks from the most challenging cyberattacks. With the power of the cloud on their side and with CrowdStrike’s profound understanding of the adversary, our government customers can leverage the most innovative technology available, such as machine learning, AI and behavioral analytics to defend their enterprise.”

CrowdStrike currently processes over 1 trillion security events per week, collected from its global customer base, to offer security teams unprecedented threat telemetry for more effective prevention, detection and response to both known and unknown threats.

The SLP PLUS contract follows an impressive year for CrowdStrike in the public sector market, in which Falcon earned its FedRAMP authorization and was approved to deliver critical cyber capabilities in support of the Department of Homeland Security Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Program. The company continues to see massive adoption globally of the Falcon platform as organizations move away from legacy antivirus.

CrowdStrike is the only cloud-based security company that offers a free trial of its antivirus replacement solution, CrowdStrike Falcon® Prevent™, enabling immediate deployments for private and public sector enterprises anytime, anywhere.
