CrowdStrike Falcon for data centers

CrowdStrike Falcon® for data centers is fast and lightweight cloud security solution. Protect your physical servers, virtual & cloud-based data centers with the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform.


Better Protection

The Falcon platform delivers prevention, detection and response capabilities to ensure stealthy attacks — and breaches — are stopped.


It provides end-to-end visibility — from endpoints to servers, workloads and containers — so you can detect attacks that involve multiple types of workloads and move across different types of environments.

Reduced Complexity

It unifies security across all data centers — on-premises, cloud, multi-cloud and hybrid — with one platform and one console.

Technical features


  • A powerful array of technologies — from machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) to indicators of attack (IOAs) — detects and prevents all types of intrusions, including ransomware and stealthy nation-state attacks
  • Threat-intelligence-based prevention capabilities block known malicious activities
  • Powerful response actions allow you to contain and remotely remediate systems
  • Managed threat hunting 24/7 ensures that stealthy attacks don’t go undetected and that breaches are stopped

End-to-end visibility

  • See and hunt threats with centralized, real-time visibility across workloads, regardless of their nature or their location
  • Identify unmanaged assets and rogue instances so you can close the gaps in your IT operations
  • Find vulnerabilities before they lead to a breach
  • See the current threat level of the organization in real time and how it changes over time
Container detection tree

EDR for containers, runtime protection and discovery

  • Endpoint detection and response (EDR) provides visibility for container activity, enabling security teams to track down threats to the individual container. It also supports container-specific investigations
  • Runtime protection engages the powerful CrowdStrike Falcon prevention and detection technologies to defend containers against active attacks
  • Immediate container discovery and visibility allow you to easily view container information including usage and trends, container detail by host, container images used and configuration
  • Protection that does not sacrifice performance, matching the speed of DevOps and adapting to the dynamic scalability of containers in real time
Container usage

Speed and simplicity

  • One unified console provides central visibility and control over cloud workloads regardless of location
  • The single, lightweight Falcon agent is easy to deploy, scales in minutes and has little impact on the host and zero impact on runtime performance. It secures host and containers without installing any additional containers for security
  • A broad set of easy-to-use APIs provides interoperability with other security platforms and tools
  • The cloud-native platform operates without constant signature updates, scan storms, complex integrations or on-premises equipment
