The arrival of virtualization and cloud technologies has spurred considerable innovation and flexibility within the data center. Organizations are increasingly embracing these operational and efficiency benefits, however, securing the data center and the high value data in it is vital. CrowdStrike Falcon® has been designed to extend protection across the data center, whether physical, virtual or in the cloud.
CrowdStrike Falcon delivers maximum protection
Remove complexity and improve performance to the data center — whether physical, virtual or cloud-based
CrowdStrike Falcon strikes the balance needed in today’s data center by providing unrivaled protection with best-in-class prevention, detection and response. The Falcon platform delivers security that actually contributes to the simplicity, flexibility, manageability and scalability benefits that IT operations expect from their modern data centers.
THE BENEFITS OF CROWDSTRIKE FALCON FOR THE DATA CENTER
Protection is delivered without it getting in the way or bogging down the data center — no scans, no signature updates, no reboots. And it is fast to deploy — there is no complex security infrastructure to manage. Simply install the lightweight Falcon sensor (~20MB) and you are done.
CrowdStrike Falcon works in all three data center types: physical, virtual and cloud. It works with every cloud platform including Amazon AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure — and it works with any and all hypervisors. The Falcon sensor also supports Windows, Linux and macOS at the kernel level.
An organization's internet-facing servers are constantly under attack. CrowdStrike Falcon provides protection against all attack types: from mundane and opportunistic, to highly targeted and sophisticated. CrowdStrike provides protection against the threats that AV and application whitelisting miss.
"We always look for highly effective solutions that align to our enterprise security ecosystem and cyber defense strategy. CrowdStrike exceeded our expectations. They enabled ADP's Cyber and IT organizations to consistently manage and better protect our data center platforms around the globe while also leveraging our existing investments and resources through innovative technology and advanced API capabilities."
