CrowdStrike Selected as a 2016 Red Herring Top 100 Global

— Company recognized for exponential growth and global expansion —

Irvine, CA – December 15, 2016 – CrowdStrike, the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, today announced that the company was recognized by Red Herring’s Top 100 Global award, a listing of the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe CrowdStrike embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. CrowdStrike should be proud of its accomplishment.”

In 2016, CrowdStrike has experienced significant global growth and exponential expansion of its operations, business development efforts and technology deployments. The company expanded its physical presence in EMEA and APAC to meet rapidly growing demand for CrowdStrike Falcon, its industry-leading, fully SaaS-based endpoint protection platform.

“This recognition speaks to the incredible business growth and global market share we’ve been able to capture in the past year,” said George Kurtz, CrowdStrike’s chief executive officer and co-founder. “With mounting industry recognition about the unmatched power of our innovative, cloud-native approach to endpoint security, we are confident that we are well-positioned to reach even bigger milestones in 2017 and continue providing our clients with the best technology and services to stop breaches.”

This recognition builds on numerous market validators and accolades for CrowdStrike in 2016. The CrowdStrike Falcon™ platform was recognized as winner of the CRN® 2016 Tech Innovator Award for Endpoint Security. CrowdStrike was also ranked as one of the fastest growing companies on the Inc. 5000 and the Deloitte Fast 500 lists, registering an impressive 2,665 percent growth over the past three years. Additionally, CrowdStrike has been named finalist in four distinct categories in the SC Media Awards to be announced in February 2017.

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track records and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.
