Company honored for best-of-breed channel strategy and industry-leading endpoint protection platform

Irvine, CA – March 9, 2016 – CrowdStrike Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered next-generation endpoint protection, threat intelligence and response services, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the company to its inaugural 2016 Security 100 list. The list recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity and Access Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Threat Detection; and Web and Application Security.

The companies in CRN’s Security 100 have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development, as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.

CrowdStrike is the leader in next-generation endpoint protection, threat intelligence, and response services. Recently, the company announced the launch of the Elevate Partner Program that delivers its endpoint protection platform in an innovative fashion through new routes to market alongside the CrowdStrike partner community. Leveraging the unique cloud-based integration capabilities of the CrowdStrike Falcon®™ Platform, the program provides customers and partners with the most effective and efficient protection to stop breaches.

“It’s great to be recognized by CRN for the outstanding partner ecosystem we’ve been able to build over the past year,” said George Kurtz, co-founder and chief executive officer of CrowdStrike. “We have seen tremendous growth in customer acquisition and the newly launched Elevate Partner Program will enable us to effectively support explosive demand for our endpoint protection platform, threat intelligence and services. Our Falcon platform and open APIs are perfect for enabling all our partners to enhance their existing offerings and deliver exponentially more value to our combined customers. We are the only endpoint protection company bringing to market the most compelling combination of next-generation antivirus, endpoint detection and response (EDR), and managed hunting all delivered from the cloud.”

“Security solutions are more essential than ever to the health and sustainability of every business, large or small,” said Robert Faletra, chief executive officer, The Channel Company. “The frequency and complexity of IT security threats have vastly increased in recent years, requiring rapid innovation and an incisive, forward-thinking defense strategy. The importance of having expertly secured networks, software, hardware, applications and databases cannot be overstated. Our Security 100 list honors those tech suppliers at the forefront of this field for their contributions to the advancement of the channel and to the IT market at large.”
