CrowdStrike’s mission is simple: Keep customers safe from breaches. CrowdStrike customers are proud to tell their story of how the Falcon platform meets their security challenges of today and allows them to defend against the adversaries of tomorrow.
STATE OF OKLAHOMA
"Security is more important in the public sector because the scope and scale of what we do for citizens make us a high-profile target. The situation is further complicated by the volume of attacks and the size of our attack surface; every user, citizen and household is a potential entry point." - Jerry Moore, Chief Information Officer, State of Oklahoma
CITY OF LAS VEGAS
"CrowdStrike found the issue, mobilized immediately and got us back to a point where we had no data loss, no major issues and were able to continue normal operations in 24-hours." - Michael Sherwood, Chief Innovation Officer, City of Las Vegas
"We’re part of the global collection of organizations using the CrowdStrike Falcon platform and through the exchange of intelligence, we’re all effectively cooperating on security. If any of us detects suspicious behavior, CrowdStrike analyzes the threat and propagates preventative controls to everyone." - Scott Stoops, Security Analyst Engineer, Ashland University
PARKWAY SCHOOL DISTRICT
"When we engaged CrowdStrike it was a complete 180. It was, OK, now we found that a partner that’s going to get us back to a stable operating point, and make us feel like we’re actually winning this battle against this malware that’s spreading like wildfire through our environment." - Jason Rooks, Director of Technology and Innovation, Parkway Schools

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT US
"One thing I absolutely love about CrowdStrike is being at the heart of a cybersecurity ecosystem. As things happen on endpoints or servers anywhere in the world, CrowdStrike is generating its own threat intel and passing that on to other platforms. CrowdStrike is a force multiplier that saves valuable resources."
CISO, State of Oklahoma
"The CrowdStrike Falcon platform provides amazing value. The agents are truly lightweight and cover multiple OS across differing architectures, enabling us to choose a single solution rather than multiple point products. It is important that our IT infrastructure deliver reliable service 24/7/365. This enables the business and offers peace of mind. The value is in saving time as the platform delivers actionable intelligence and the dashboards are easy to use. Our security staff can dial-in threats quickly and take the appropriate action. The intuitive dashboards help us demonstrate ROI to business stakeholders, traditionally a challenge for CISOs. Keep up the great work!"
