CrowdStrike Falcon receives high score of 4.8 out of 5 based on highest user satisfaction among vendors

Sunnyvale, CA — November 19, 2018 — CrowdStrike® Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, today announced that it received the highest overall rating within 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Endpoint Protection Platforms. CrowdStrike received a 4.8 rating out of 5 based on 249 verified customer reviews, the highest of all vendors named a Customers’ Choice in this market.

The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice Distinction is based on feedback and ratings from end-user professionals who experience purchasing, implementing and/or using the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform. The Gartner Peer Insights methodology collects data to help clients with a top-level synthesis of which vendor products are the most valued by customers for Endpoint Protection Platforms. Vendors recognized as a Customer’s Choice must have 50 or more approved ratings and an average overall rating of 4.2 stars or greater.

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

Here are some examples of what CrowdStrike customers are saying:

“The best endpoint security tool on the market… Having worked with CrowdStrike’s top three competitors I am blown away with the feature set available to me and my team, especially after such a negligible effort to deploy and tune… There is not a single use case we have that is not covered by the Falcon platform, and the additional modules available to implement as we scale as a security program ensures we will be able to meet the needs of our business with just a single agent.” — Security Engineer in the Healthcare Industry

“The product gives us unprecedented visibility into attacks, a large library of IOCs and tools to investigate the incident. The performance is very fast and works whether client devices are in or out of the office, due to being cloud based. The service has always been prompt, professional and effective.” — Head of EA and Governance in the Energy and Utilities Industry

“The gold standard for next-generation AV. Falcon has provided us with a blend of tools that made the transition to adaptive security architecture possible.” — Manager Information Security in the Finance Industry

CrowdStrike continues to set the new standard in endpoint protection through its innovative AI-enabled, cloud-native platform. It both delivers and unifies IT Hygiene, next-generation antivirus, endpoint detection and response (EDR), managed threat hunting, vulnerability management and threat intelligence — all delivered via a single lightweight agent.

“CrowdStrike has developed the most innovative endpoint security platform on the market to effectively protect our customers from today’s stealthy and persistent cyberattacks. We believe being the highest ranking vendor named through direct feedback from our customers is a true validation of the power of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform and the passion the CrowdStrike team has in delighting our customers, one of the core values of the company,” said Dmitri Alperovitch, chief technology officer and co-founder of CrowdStrike. “As customers continue to move beyond legacy solutions, CrowdStrike addresses the substantial market need for a comprehensive cloud-delivered solution that integrates all the necessary components needed to defeat the adversary and stay ahead of threats.”

This year, CrowdStrike was positioned the highest for its ability to execute and furthest to the right for its completeness of vision in the Visionaries quadrant by Gartner analysts in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms.

Through leveraging the power of the cloud, CrowdStrike is the only security company that offers a free trial of its antivirus replacement solution, CrowdStrike Falcon Prevent™, enabling immediate deployments at any time, anywhere.
