The Time Has Come to Replace Your Antivirus Solution

How to Replace Your Legacy Antivirus Solution with CrowdStrike

Legacy AV products are failing to stop modern threats. That’s why AV replacement is a hot topic in the industry and why enterprises in every sector are looking for answers. As breaches continue to dominate the headlines, you need to know that there is a new approach that can close the wide security gap left by yesterday’s AV solutions. Defending against today’s sophisticated polymorphic threats requires new weapons and that’s just what the CrowdStrike Falcon Platform delivers.

The key to this new approach is going beyond malware to addressing the most complex and persistent cyber threats at every stage of the kill chain. CrowdStrike does this by combining next-gen antivirus, endpoint detection and response (EDR), and a managed threat hunting service – all cloud-delivered with a single lightweight agent.

In this CrowdCast, Dan Larson, VP of Product Marketing, will discuss:

  • The typical challenges with legacy antivirus, from efficacy to complexity & bulky architecture
  • How CrowdStrike stands above competitive offerings by providing robust threat prevention leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • How Falcon’s lightweight sensor and cloud architecture dramatically reduces operational burden
  • How you can seamlessly migrate from legacy antivirus to CrowdStrike Falcon
  • Why CrowdStrike was positioned as a “Visionary” in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Solutions and what it says about our standing as an effective AV replacement
