“We are honored to receive such a prestigious industry award from SC Awards Europe. As the inventors of the EDR category, we are proud to once again fundamentally change the game with XDR,” said Amol Kulkarni, chief product and engineering officer at CrowdStrike. “With CROWDSTRIKE FALCON® XDR, we are building on our foundational EDR innovation to unify historically siloed data sources to find the most advanced, hidden attacks that may be missed by traditional approaches. The last thing overburdened security teams need is more noise, and only CrowdStrike can deliver best-in-class detection, investigation and response across their entire environment that moves them from reactive firefighting to a proactive posture that stops breaches.”
