State of Oklahoma
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, CIO, State of Oklahoma

City of New York
City of New York
“When I think about NYC and its mission to build the most cyber-resilient city in the world, we can’t do that by ourselves, we just can’t. We won’t be successful.” — Geoffrey Brown, New York City’s CISO and Head of NYC Cyber Command
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."
- Matt Singleton, CISO, State of Oklahoma
"I don’t want just to be sold something, I want a partnership where we can work and grow together. I continue to promote CrowdStrike because this is exactly the relationship we have built."
- Joseph Daniles, Chief Information Officer, Illinois State Treasurer
"As soon as it was installed, CrowdStrike immediately found crazy stuff taking place on these boxes. The other two products weren’t detecting anything. Once we saw that, we knew we’d made the right decision."
- Shannon Lawson, CISO, City of Phoenix
"Consolidating vendors under CrowdStrike and procuring the solution through AWS Marketplace provided considerable savings and freed up funds for other security projects."
- Tim Roemer, Chief Information Security Officer, Arizona Department of Homeland Security
