CrowdStrike Named a Strong Performer for External Threat Intelligence Services by Independent Research Firm

CrowdStrike leads the pack with its coverage of nation-state actors and visibility provided by its endpoint detection and response and threat hunting offerings     

Sunnyvale, CA — September 10, 2018CrowdStrike® Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, today announced that Forrester Research, Inc. named CrowdStrike a Strong Performer in The Forrester New Wave™: External Threat Intelligence Services, Q3 2018. CrowdStrike achieved a differentiated rating in 5 of the 10 evaluation criteria, including technical intelligence, threat feeds, global reach and strategic partnerships. According to Forrester, CrowdStrike leads the pack with its coverage of nation-state actors, and visibility provided by a global sensor network resulting from its endpoint detection and response (EDR) and threat hunting offerings.

Earlier this year, CrowdStrike announced the launch of CrowdStrike Falcon X™, a turnkey, integrated threat analysis module of the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform. CrowdStrike Falcon X is the first security product to automate the entire threat analysis process and deliver actionable intelligence and indicators of compromise (IoCs) specifically tailored for the threats each customer encounters. With Falcon X, customers can evaluate every threat and all of its known variants, and immediately share them with other security tools like firewalls, gateways and security orchestration tools via API. This bolsters the effectiveness of all security tools across the enterprise and accelerates the identification of incidents, streamlines the investigative process and drives better security outcomes. In August, CrowdStrike introduced Falcon X Premium, further broadening the scope of the Falcon X offering with intelligence reports with global IoCs, intelligence support, custom malware analysis, and all Falcon Intelligence™ APIs.

Since the onset of the company, CrowdStrike has enabled customers to better understand the threat landscape they face and improve the efficacy and efficiency of their security strategy with actionable and customized intelligence.

“With the Falcon X offerings, CrowdStrike customers can leverage our advanced, real-time intelligence feeds in an automated and streamlined manner to gain immediate insight into adversary activity, and prioritize and focus their resources on the most critical threats,” said Adam Meyers, CrowdStrike’s vice president of Intelligence. “By introducing industry-leading automation and integration via a rich set of APIs, CrowdStrike continues to lead the pack in making threat intelligence actionable for organizations of all sizes.

The CrowdStrike Falcon platform leverages one of the industry’s largest threat telemetries, processing 150 billion security events a day, all delivered through one lightweight endpoint sensor.  As part of its next-generation endpoint protection technology, CrowdStrike uses powerful signatureless machine learning algorithms and Indicators-of-Attack (IoA) based threat prevention to identify and block known and unknown threats.

Earlier this year, Forrester Research, Inc. named CrowdStrike a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Detection And Response, Q3 2018 report[1] and in The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security Suites, Q2 2018 report[2]. CrowdStrike is the only company named a Leader in both reports.
