We think CrowdStrike customers praise CrowdStrike Falcon’s high return on investment (RoI) for its advanced capabilities, ease of deployment through cloud-native architecture, breach prevention capabilities and 24/7/365 customer support.

CrowdStrike was built as a cloud-native, single agent solution to establish a new standard of security in the cloud-era. The Falcon platform integrates 11 cloud modules that span multiple capabilities, including endpoint security, security operations and threat intelligence aimed at helping customers to thwart today’s sophisticated cyber threats. The CrowdStrike approach begins with its intelligent lightweight agent that enables frictionless deployment of the Falcon platform at scale. Through the agent, customers are able to rapidly secure workloads running on multiple endpoints. The agent also sends data to the cloud while retaining local detection and prevention capabilities.

“We’re proud to have created the industry-leading cloud-native endpoint security platform that has enabled our customers to move beyond legacy solutions and stay ahead of threats to defeat adversaries,” said Amol Kulkarni, chief product officer of CrowdStrike. “We think there are compelling customer testimonials on the Gartner Peer Insights that support our dedication to driving innovation in the industry by pioneering the Security Cloud, and continuing to build our platform to deliver the most reliable and comprehensive threat protection on the market.”

This year, CrowdStrike ranked within the highest three product scores across all use cases in the 2019 Critical Capabilities for Endpoint Protection Platforms report. The company was also named a “Leader” in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) in only its third year of being acknowledged. The company also received the highest score for “Lean Forward” Organizations (Type A Use Cases) in Gartner’s 2019 Critical Capabilities for Endpoint Protection Platforms report.
