Conventional security solutions are failing to keep pace with today’s threats and many organizations want to move to next-generation technology to achieve more effective endpoint protection.

You will also learn how CrowdStrike Falcon performed against today’s most advanced threats, including ransomware, malware-free attacks, and other threats that bypass legacy solutions.
