Irvine, CA – June 9, 2015 – CrowdStrike, a leading provider of next-generation endpoint protection, threat intelligence, and 24/7 monitoring and incident response services, announced today that it has been selected as a 2015 Red Herring’s Top 100 North America Winner, a list honoring the year’s most promising private technology companies from the North American business region.
CrowdStrike was selected based on the company’s affirmed market leadership and visionary technology platform that has revolutionized the endpoint security market. CrowdStrike Falcon is the only true cloud-based endpoint protection solution detecting malware and malware free intrusions, and offering critical context and real-time search capability to prevent, detect, and stop advanced adversaries.
“This recognition is a testament to the important milestones we’ve reached as a company during the past year and to the significant growth and leadership trajectory we’ve been following to drive the adoption of innovative, effective, and visionary security solutions,” said George Kurtz, CrowdStrike CEO and Co-founder. “We will continue to make strategic investments and enhance the functionality of our Falcon platform to ensure that our customers have access to the most comprehensive endpoint protection on the market.”
The Red Herring awards recognize the top 100 most promising private companies and outstanding entrepreneurs based on intellectual property, patents, financing, revenues, business model and management team experience.
“In 2015, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the North America winners. We believe CrowdStrike embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. CrowdStrike should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
This distinction marks the latest in a series of awards recognizing CrowdStrike for its continued growth, technical innovation, and corporate momentum. In addition to being been included on Forbes magazine’s list of America’s Most Promising Companies for 2015, CrowdStrike has been named one of the top cybersecurity innovators by Security Innovation Network (SINET), one of the hottest startups to watch in 2015 by Dark Reading, and was included in the MIT Technology Review’s prestigious list of the 50 Most Disruptive Companies.
